We have a new granddaughter who arrived this morning at 4.30. She’s called Maggie and weighed 7lb 14 oz. She was supposed to be a home birth but there weren’t midwives available because of illness and the bad weather. She’s now home before the heavy snow that is predicted and we are going to take her big brother up to meet her. He has been staying with us on the boat. He was nice and cozy in the dinette bed but I was worried that he would be woken by the sound of the ice creaking and groaning round us in the night. He has been addicted to Happy Feet, the penguin movie, which we have on the boat for him so it is very appropriate.
Well, we are off to meet the little girl!
