Well, here she new granddaughter, Olivia.  I went up to snowy Derbyshire to meet her - and she is gorgeous (although I admit I'm slightly biased!!)  Once in my arms, I was switched back to the whole maternal bit - rubbing the back, winding, rocking, jiggling etc. etc.  It does seem to come very naturally.  I think my d-in-l was wishing I lived a whole lot nearer ..... and so was I.  It's hard when a distance separates you - particularly from the children.  Still, never mind, I managed to see all three of my offspring plus 4 out of 5 grandchildren this week, so I am happy.  The snow further north was stunning.  I've never seen such depth before, but oh my....the sadness of all the body bags in the fields was absolutely heart-wrenching.  Thousands of sheep have been buried in the snow - unbearable.  Today is Easter Sunday however - and I always feel there is hope of new life and things to come...which reminds me, I am supposed to moving into my new house this week....................HAPPY EASTER!
