No matter how ill I've been feeling, apart from sleeping, I cannot just sit and do nothing.
So I had a browse through some old photographs and found these pics of Christenings of my dear grandchildren.
At the top is Rebecca, then and now and below is Richard.
The top Christening pic was taken in the garden and the bottom one indoors, with me looking surprised and not ready to smile for the camera!
I'm wearing the same little velvet half-hat with a wisp of veiling in both photos.
Both Christening gowns were made by me, Rebecca's being crocheted specially for her. The bonnet to go with it has disappeared and the lace one with tiny blue bows Richard is wearing was made for my son 55 years ago. Family heirlooms of sorts I suppose.
I love looking at the old photos but I can't believe where the years have gone. I am so proud of them both, now wonderful caring adults, and Richard is a father of two.
Happy memories I thought you might like to share.
