Hello....and Happy Wednesday!

Hello my lovely blog chums, hope that post finds you well!

This is pretty much me playing catch up today. So you will know that hubby and I went on a little jaunt, to visit his daughter and her family in  Scotland and to meet our new baby grandson. Well, we had a smashing time and fell completely in love this little fellow.
So now, I am very excited and proud to introduce you all to
Alex Ewan Alistair
born 6th February and weighed in at 8lb 3oz

The day after returning home we had to take our Daisy (our Jack Russell X Shih Tzu) to the vet for, what turned out to be quite a big operation. She had to have a unilateral mastectomy. For a little dog, she has quite some stitching there and did need a little extra care and attention over the weekend. She is recovering well though. So before I knew it, Monday had rolled around again, I was back to work and unfortunately not a bit of blogging had happened!!!!

So, I have two DT cards to share today..........

First up, is sweet sketch wednesday
