The combination of a faulty computer and babysitting duties has meant that Monix is unable to post for a short while, but the blog's readers' loss is the family's gain, as children and grandchildren will have the benefit of her fine company over the next two weeks. She promises to pop in when she can, so expect more family stories (unless there is something more interesting to say!).
In the meantime, for those of you who have taken an interest in the growing family: a picture of Millie in a dress created by Grandma, especially for potty training and playing in the garden on sunny days. We do love having such a skilled grandma!
