Scarlett gets her middle name

I’ve been pretty busy recently and as some of you know the main reason is the arrival of my third grandchild, my daughters first daughter Scarlett! I’ve been up to stay twice this month and I’ve had such a special time, bathing her and going with Nina and Steve to get her weighed. This week we even had a professional photo shoot, when Steve set up his studio lights, and I got to play with his serious camera to take photos of the three of them. Of course there are plenty of me with Scarlett and Nina too, maybe I’ll post some once Steve is happy with them. Meanwhile here are a few that I’ve taken.

Scarlett didn’t have a middle name at first, but I’m thrilled to bits that they have chosen Ngozi. It’s a Nigerian Igbo name that means ‘Blessing’ and it’s great that she will carry a little of her cultural inheritance forward.

As well as all this I’ve been writing an assignment for my creative writing course and doing lots of craft fairs, but things are settling down now!
