Cuddles with Will

Cuddles with Will
 Already he is changing, only 4 days old
William seams a big name for this little man, mummy and daddy have started calling him Will.
They are settling into family life, resting where they can, it always lovely to see another young family together.
We have had loads of cuddles, we went for tea tonight, it was a good deal, we cooked shepherds pie and took it with us, so we all had a good meal and catch up.
We have no plans to visit again before Friday, when we will take Thai Green curry.
Tomorrow Grandma and Grandpa are visiting with Chicken casserole, they get their catch up and cuddles.
My Lemon Meringue was lovely, we finished it tonight, it was tart, which is how we enjoy them, hubby has requested another for this weekend.
I have one band to finish on his black knitted cardi, which will be done by Friday, all the sewing up has been done (which I do hate), so I can then finish his blue cardi. He has more clothes than I have, but in various sizes, which will last him.
Not done much else, I finished reading Undertow by Sue Grafton, which I really enjoyed, I am popping to our local library on Saturday to get some more books.

Sunday evening

Baking on a Sunday
Paella and Quiche for mummy and daddy
 Lunch size quiche's and paella for us
Lemon Meringue, Marry Berry's recipe from BBC food.  
I don't do enough baking, hubby is such a good cook, but I do enjoy some time in the kitchen, my Maliee Quiche recipe is here, its made without pastry, which is a bonus for me, I have 4 small quiches for my lunch, they do have cheese in, so hubby can't eat them, but he is not a fan of quiche.
We are having a coffee and the first slice of the lemon meringue, my lemons were big so I only used 5 instead of the 6 in the recipe, I also cut back on the sugar in the meringue, so it's a good tart flavour, just how we like it.
Last night we were with friends and had a Chinese takeaway for supper, plus a bottle of Presecco, I stayed out to mid night, which surprised me as I only had about 5 hours sleep, it was fun to sit and chat.
Mummy and William are back home, we took the food to their house and was surprised they were back, but being very sensible they were making time for just the 3 of them, so after only 5 minutes we came away, and will catch up with them later in the week.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments, it's lovely to have a new baby in the family, we are looking forward to getting to know him as he grows.
Later I will be finishing knitting the baby jacket and if I have enough wool a tiny hat as well.

Welcome to William

William Jonathan arrived at 2.58 am this morning
My Amaryllis is blooming 
 Valentine flowers 
 Another good book to read, whilst waiting last night
We were in the hospital until 5.30 this morning, with Granny, it was lovely to share the moment, our newest family are all doing well, so lovely to see mum and dad with William. We will pop in to see them this afternoon.
So a quiet day at home, I want to do some baking so when daughter goes home on Sunday, there will be a couple of fresh meals in their fridge. Plus an early night for us both later.
