Just had to show you this photo of little Leo with his Dad - he is so gorgeous and such a good boy - they are such a lucky couple and he is lucky to have them and me as nanny of course!  I am going to see him again this evening - yeh that will be lovely.

 Rob and I have a new visitor in the garden, he has moved into the pond to join our five goldfish - he is quite cute.  He likes the fish food knows when he is well off.  We were pleased that the fish survived the really cold winter again - now they have the best place in all this heat!
My sister gave us this Clematis when we first set up home together and moving it here to this house has suited it down to the ground, it is a picture and we can see it from the Dining Room Window.  We spent Monday planting up all our bedding plants and the garden looks lovely - we both enjoy tinkering in the garden together.

 Look who has joined our family - Leo Spencer Elliott born 21st May 2012 9.55 am weighing 8lbs 3 ozs - Don't you just order his little sleepsuit.
Rob was so looking forward to his arrival and we are now the proudest Grandparents ever.

Very proud Dad - Nic is going to be a wonderful dad - we are all so lucky he has come into our lives.

Well just in case you had missed me - though you probably thought I was being lazy and not blogging!  We have just had the most wonderful nine days at Lake Como - the weather was fabulous around 30 degrees - so it was very chilly coming back home.
This was the view from our hotel bedroom - it was lovely and I really did not want to come back home.

One of the magnificant floor patterns from the Cathedral in Milan.  Milan was fascinating all the shops were very fashion conscious.  We did the Open top bus tour and that was marvellous - we had a great day there.
One of the highlights was the Bernina Mountain Express it is the highest railway in Europe and was quite breaktaking.

Another highlight was a lake cruise around Como - it was a beautiful day, the lake was calm and the scenery out of this world.
As you all know by now I am not one with the greatest amount of patience and I have got fed up with waiting for photos to upload - I could be sewing!!!  So I shall put more photos on later in the week.
All in all it was a really relaxing week and we fell in love with the lakes.
