Hello, I’m now a proud Grandmother to my precious little Granddaughter Ruby Mae…aged 19 months. (the love of my life!) I’m Mum to three grown children aged 39,35 and 25. Yes, there is an age gap isn’t there!! After having a boy and a girl, we thought that our little family was ‘complete.’ Not so…Had a tubal ligation, and five years to the day walked out of the same hospital with my tiny bundle of joy! One in every thousand become pregnant after operation, and my tubes were burnt, not tied! Need I say how much he is so dearly loved. He has just turned 25. So much has happened within the family, but he is my little rat bag with a heart of gold. He is now a very proud Uncle and I am a very proud Mum and Nanny! Yes, I could write a novel on it all, but I’ve just given a snippet into a part of our lives. His name is ‘Matthew’…and it means ‘Gift of God!!’ What else could we name him!

  • Hi darl, sorry if I ‘alarmed’ you…my little tale tends to do that to most!! At the time is was very difficult adjusting to a new baby arriving on the scene, but I can tell you, he was loved from the moment we found out that he was on his way!! After the shock of it all, and buying new baby ‘everything’ we were blessed with a gorgeous, healthy 9lbs. 2ozs baby boy. You sound very busy with your four children, but if you would love another, I wish you well in completing your lovely family. Good luck with it all…’Nanny’ xx
