Well I know that this isn’t a scene or a grand landscape, or amazing building but I believe that the creation of life is a masterpiece, natures miracle in its self!
So I think I am now ready to introduce to the world my granddaughter Dotty-Mae.
She was born a month ago and it has taken me a while to get used to the idea of this new little person coming into the world, because I was not ready for this. But now she is here she is beautiful and today I have my first official nana duty!
My son is young and this was unexpected but your children never cease to amaze you and he is doing a grand job being a father!
And here I am with Dotty only 4 hours old! She was born at home with no pain relief and she was 9lbs…. Respect to mum!
If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?
I think the best two pieces of advice I have had whilst growing up and that have stuck with me, is,
1. Always walk out the door looking your best. I definitely follow this one. Hair and makeup always needs to be on for me to face the world, because it it sods law you will bump into someone you haven’t seen in years when you have just dragged your arse out of bed, shoved your joggers on, licked your hair down, not bothered with your contact lenses and your breath smells like dog shit!
2. Always walk into a room as if you own it. This is a great bit of advice if you lack a little confidence. It is all about faking it. People always say to me how confident I come across as, but inside I’m a scared little child. If I walk into a posh hotel or into a pub I always stride in imagining that I am the owner, it gives you an ‘air’ about you and people treat you differently, try it, it works!
Thanks for dropping by! X
p.s I took this picture today on my way home, it’s just next to my house, lovely sky isn’t it! X
Here’s to the prancers, the twirlers, and spinners, to the dancers that was and still can be, who’s imagination still runs, still plays, still performs, we are here, we are now, still present, let me hear the music, find the space and invite an audience, come dance with me
