My First Snowman!

We have such an amazing gift that has been hidden behind what may have seemed to outsiders many things… our new baby is coming in August, page the 14th we think!

However, apoplectic since mid December, visit this site I have had only brief flashes of energy, and mostly I haven’t been able to move because of the constant nausea. I hope my lack of socialising or other activity, real or web, hasn’t seemed like I’ve forgotten about you, but I’m still being sick and am very tired.  I am so very happy!

It does make me think about the metaphor of gestation afresh – what are you hatching that no one can see? Is it a difficult journey, and do people misunderstand? I am sending you LOVE!
At last we have had some proper-ish snow and so before it melted we rushed out to have some fun!

We then had a go at building Snowy, noun
which consisted of Mira trying to pulverise or stamp on the growing snow balls and pull out his nose.

Sandra came to help, caries
particularly with reconstructive surgery!
