this is my mother, and my sister ...



Originally uploaded by lippy292003

my mother (from lancs) has been visiting my sister in cheltenham, and my sister shared some pics on her flickr pages ... i was both intrigued, gobsmacked and just a bit jealous ...

i have not seen this woman since i was 5 months pregnant with my first child, now over 10 years old, and here i am expecting baby number 4 any day now ... i both recognised her and didn't recognise her!

this year, just after christmas i spoke to mother on the phone, it was me that got brave and phoned her, to thank her for usual cards ...

i miss my sister as neither of us can get to the other at the moment, but am thankful for skype! i have been looking at this photo for a long time !

anyway, to get back to everyday life here, i am not sure if i have had a few symptoms of early labour, but im off to drink more water and nibble something, just in case!

I hope your baby comes soon, I know what it's like to wait so long..
This seems though a bit of a sad post, how come you didn't see your mother so long?

Families, eh? Not easy at the best of times. Chin up m'dear, there'll be no time for reflecting soon!

Hi Cat, I mailed your little ballerina mouse off this morning.
Now we shall see who arrives first, the mouse or that sweet baby!
Families hmmm....can't live with them and can't live without them.
Hang in there.

I'd miss my sister if I couldn't visit - still not long now to wait til the baby comes.
