I spent a lovely day today in the company of four of my 'babies', some of their babies and one of their baby's babies! There were four generations of us. It was total mayhem but great fun and the noise was augmented by one daughter's dog who was very excited to have the two little ones to play with. I apologise for the poor quality of this photo - I couldn't stand back far enough to get a better picture and had to hurry so that one of the party could keep an appointment.
The day was largely unplanned and began simply enough when our eldest daughter asked if I would help her cut out a dress pattern. Her daughter said she had the day off and could she come too - I suggested they stay for lunch - the news got round on the family grapevine and before I knew it there were 10 of us!
My husband wisely retreated to somewhere quieter until the coast was clear.
