Valentines Day

I don't tend to do much on Valentines day,OH has never agreed with it so hes never really bothered.
My neighbour has just had a flower arrangement delivered and i must admit I'm a tad envious.I always used to love having flowers delivered....

My youngest daughter did something lovely as usual she left this on the side before she went out yesterday.

Fed ex were parked outside my house when i returned from work delivering a parcel,well i hadn't ordered anything so assumed it was for DD as she is the only one that has a disposable income in this house.But to my surprise it was for me i have won a ceramic cheese platter from Waitrose how exciting is that....

On a sadder note

My eldest daughter lives with a lovely couple who have been trying for a baby for many years.Lots of miscarriages.Well the latter part of last year by surprise she fell pregnant,passed the point she normally miscarries and she began to feel hopeful.
A week ago she had the results of her amnio and it was not good news,The baby was not viable with life so would not have survived being born.So yesterday she was admitted to hospital to deliver the stillborn baby.It always saddens me that labour is the only way to do this,all that pain for no gain.
Well Sally wanted my Yaz with her.Yaz was a trooper she was with her every step of the way and actually caught the baby when it was delivered.It was perfectly formed little girl .
Many tears were shed by Yaz to me on the phone so she could then dry her eyes and go back into Sally.
I'm very proud that my daughter was able to help Sally in her hour of need.It brings a lump to my throat just thinking about this ordeal and i count my blessings i was able to have 3 wonderful children.I fell in love with my babies the moment i found out i was pregnant, they were never just cells or foetuses they were my babies.

Valentines day will now have a totally different meaning to this couple it will now be the birthday and day there baby died.
And it is also the end of all possibilities of them ever being able to have children...

Until later


  1. Oh, my heart goes out to Sally. Your daughter is a credit it to you.

  2. What an awful experience. Life can be so cruel sometimes. Well done to your daughter for being there for her xx

  3. How awful for them all, its a strange coincidence but we also went through exactly the same thing and had a still born baby girl 16 years ago today, luckily for us we were able to go on to have three healthy children afterwards, I hope they manage to get through this ok.x
