Call Me Non-Swearing Grandmother Now!

If anyone remembers me, just wanted to share the fact that I am now a Granny! Can't begin to tell you what that feels like, the responsibility of not swearing, learning to make jam, growing the colour out of my hair and smelling of lavender - it's not an easy adjustment I can tell you. My only concession to grannyhood is that I do seem to have developed a sore knee, but that could be because of my stubborn refusal to stop wearing what my husband calls "bad woman" shoes, so it's probably my own fault and I ought to know better at my age.

Actually, apart from the fact that I'm in a permanent "aaaah, isn't he gorgeous" state of mind, physically there's no discernable difference - I guess I was expecting to look and feel different, but apart from all my old maternal feelings coming flooding back with a vengence, being totally besotted by this tiny scrap of humanity and the granny hormones kicking in like you wouldn't believe, Swearing Mother is pretty much the same as always. Just trying not to swear so much, but bloody hell it's hard.

Anyway, just thought I'd drop by, out of the blue as it were, to say a Very Merry Christmas to anyone and everyone who happens to still be in touch with this blog. Can't promise that I'll start it up again, but then again who knows?

Have a good Christmas!

CONGRATULATIONS! No... you can't swear now!
So good to see you back!
I never forgot your post about the pigeons! Hilarious!
Merry Christmas. Enjoy the baby. Theres nothing quite like a little grandchild. Its a completely different feeling from having your own. Spoil him, then hand him back!

Congratulations of course, but I must say how thrilled I was to see your blog name come up. It's been far too long and you do make me laugh.

Well you CAN swear but not in front of the grand-kids! Nice to know you're still around. Keep posting now and again it'll show up on my inbox.
Thole Man has been a bit stoppy-starty this last year or so but is running again at the mo.

Oh and before I forget, Comgrats BTW. I'm sure know I really mean it.
