We are the lucky ones, people, really we are! Three beautiful daughters, two great sons-in-law and the best little grandson and now – a new baby granddaughter… meet Mireille:
Bouncy, bonnie and very awake indeed, she’s been warmly welcomed by everyone: her mum popped into hospital to have her and was back home again for a family tea party the same afternoon! Now 10 days old and feeding keenly, she’s been whisked around all kinds of places already, as well as cuddled and fussed over by family members from her big brother (3) to one of her great-grannies (this one is nearly 90)… yes, this family is long-lived and we are 5 generations still living, from 10 days to 95 (great-great granny)!
