My new grand-daughter!

Well, here she is at last - Ruby Skye Smith. She was born yesterday morning at 7.36 and weighed 9lbs 2 ozs. Isn't she lovely? Ruby is my first grand-daughter, after five grandsons so you can imagine how excited we all are. Her brother Dylan, who you all know, was very excited yesterday. He was with me in the afternoon until his daddy came and fetched him and took him to the hospital to introduce him to his new big sister.

We did some colouring.

This was a very special day and I felt privileged to be part of it. We witnessed the birth of a family, which is now complete - mum, dad, brother and sister. Any more children would be a bonus.

So, welcome to the world little Ruby. I hope you have a very happy life.

Hello people,  one of my blogging friends has just informed me that unless you are a member of Google + it is not possible to comment on my blog! I had no idea this was so. I'm sorry if this is inconvenient for you. It certainly is to me.

Yesterday I tried to write a post on the main computer and my blog had disappeared. What is going on? I started a new blog on the blogger site but it doesn't appear in my list here! Weird. So now I can get to this blog on my IPad, but not on my computer and I can only access my new blog on the computer. I can't access this blog on it.

I prefer to write blogs on the computer because my IPad doesn't know how to add pictures. Anyone else had this problem?

When I looked at the blogger forum it seemed that many people have had disappearing blogs. How odd is that.

Tomorrow my daughter in law goes into hospital to have her baby. There is much excitement in the family. I'll let you know what happens. I have my phone handy.

If anyone wants to look at my new blog, it's called 'Oma's gardening blog'.
