Hello my lovely bloggy buddies!!!!  I have a few things to show you today.  I hasve used photo's which are pretty special to me for these LO's.  Both the large words are from the TANDO range.

  Yes, this is my Nanny with only 9 of her 11 children.  My Mum is the little one in the front with a white pinny.  I so felt for Nanny as she was constantly pregnant up till she was 45.  She also had several miscarraiges along the way.  She told me that although she loved all her children she would cry when she saw the nieghbouring wives going into town together with just one pram.  She could never do that!!!  But she did live till she was 99 so it wasn't bad for her health, Bless Her!



The 2nd LO is of my daughter when she was 7, in 1992.  That was an awful winter as she was in & out of hospital with a mysterious bowel & kidney infection.  This was taken on a rare day home when we visited Santa to cheer her up.  You can see how pale she is but I wanted to scrap it as it shows her determination to still have fun!  They never did get to the root of the problem & she still has regular kidney infections poor love.


Thank you for looking at these today.  I hope all your Christmas preparations are going well, HUGS XXX
