It's Friday again and time to count our blessings for the week. This meme is hosted by Susanne over at Living to Tell the Story. Pop over there to find out more and see who's taking part.
1) I finished this in time for Grandson Noah's first birthday:
I must admit, having two of these on the go (the other one is for Rory) I did get a bit bored with it from time to time but I was determined to get them finished for their birthdays so that was one of the reasons I didn't make it here much in the last couple of weeks. Every spare moment has been spent knitting.
2) We celebrated Noah's first birthday with a family tea at his other Grandparents house:
He had lots of new toys and of course there was cake!
3) I've seen all 3 Grandsons this week having my usual days with Rory and Nathan. Fortunately I can manage to get both of them to nap for a while during the day:
Rory's cot doesn't have a drop down side so it's really hard to transfer him into the cot once he's asleep without waking him. I came up with plan B
Nathan fell asleep while we were out at the shops. I couldn't find his sunhat so we made do with one of his swimhats! He actually kept it on. (A blessing in itself!)
4) A husband that not only cooks but provides breakfast in bed.

We had the chance to vote in the European Parliament elections this week. In theory we would not have been doing that because by now we should not have been part of Europe - well the European Union but of course Brexit drags on and on and on and ...........
Now we face the prospect of a new Prime Minister. Will it help? I'm not convinced. It was difficult to know who to vote for given that when we do finally Brexit all the MEPs elected will be redundant. But, it's still a possibility that there could be a second referendum on the matter and those MEPs might be there for a while! On the basis that I voted to remain originally I voted for the Green party because they definitely want to hold a second referendum.
Apologies, this is turning into a political rant and I'm supposed to be counting my blessings. Have a good weekend all! I'll be seeing all three Grandsons together on Sunday so mine is guaranteed to be good.
