Since having baby, we've both been amazed at just how generous people have been. We've had so many gifts for her - particularly clothes, we won't need to go clothes shopping for some time!
One of the gifts we received also happens to be my favourite and its this playmat made by my Auntie (her Great Auntie!).
Apparently this is her first attempt at making anything like this - I can't believe it, everything's so neat!
I don't mind admitting that I had a cry when I opened the parcel. It was completely unexpected and the previous day I had also had a large bouquet of flowers from them. Sewing and making things myself means that I am completely aware of the amount of time and effort that went into making this for her.
We're just starting to get back on an even keel. This time last week we were already there but things were thrown out of kilter on Wednesday when I was taken into hospital suffering with complications from the birth. Following a small operation (and blood transfusion) and excellent care from the doctors and midwives, I'm now back home and slowly getting into the swing of things.
Back soon x
