Everybody say Awwwww

With all the chaos surrounding Christmas in the hospital I forgot to tell you about the birth of a special little boy.

One of my friends from school, Karen, found out her daughter was pregnant earlier this year and her baby was due on Christmas day.

Baby Lucas decided to come a bit earlier, just so that he could have his first Christmas sooner than most and he is now a month old.

They live in Glasgow which is about a 4 hour drive from my house but luckily for me, they were home to visit great granny this weekend so I was able to catch up and steal a little cuddle.

Baby Lucas

And OMG, he is mega cute! Martine, his mum, is looking good considering how tiring having a newborn is and seemed pretty relaxed and confident considering she is a young mum. I know I would never have been as confident as that at her age but it all seemed to come natural to her.

I couldn't resist teasing her mum about being called Granny though, especially since she is younger than me! Tee hee hee, it's just gotta be done.

Whilst home, I have had my hair all chopped off cos it was getting so long. Was a bit nervous about going shorter but then I thought, what the hell!  My niece, Diane, coloured it my favourite colour too...mostly purple with a bit of red thrown in.

What do you think????

Holly and I also went to see War Horse which is a superb film which I think you will love. It was a long film but I honestly wasn't aware of it as I was riveted from the start. If you haven't seen it then what are you waiting for? Oh and don't forget to bring tissues as you will cry.


  1. Aaaaw! Bless! You're right, baby Lucas is SO cute. I bet it was lovely to have a little cuddle with him. I love your hair. You look SO young in that photo!! I already did a post about War Horse, and I agree with you, it was absolutely brilliant! All that lovely scenery before the horse went to war was filmed only ten minutes from where I live, on Dartmoor! Glad you've had a lovely bit of R & R my friend. You needed that, to recharge your batteries. Hugs.

  2. You look great!!!! And that little baby is just adorable!!!

    I've not heard of War Horse. Gawd, I'm out of the loop!!!

  3. Baby Lucas needs some neck muscles. heehee He seems to be saying "What are you looking at?" He is adorable. I miss having babies around. I would be stealing cuddles too.

    Can't wait to see War Horse. Glad you & Hollie got to see it. Tell Hollie I said good luck on exams and break a leg! on stage.

  4. What a cutie! And course you have to harrass her about being a granny! What are friends for, right?

    Heard that was a great movie, took the daugher and some of her friends to see it.. I'll have to catch it when it comes out on DVD..

    Um... your hair is mostly purple? with some red? awesome! How brave you are to try unusual colors! I about shit myself when i just went dark brown.. lol imagine what my hubby might say if i did some purple.. have to think on that some :)

  5. I LOVE your hair. I think I might try out that color. And I LOVE the baby. I can't wait to be called granny or grandmama or grandmere. Whatever. Just give me a grandchild to love.

  7. Nothing like a new baby to brighten up the world, well unless it's a new hairdo! You look fantastic and I'm so happy you've been able to have a bit of R&R.
