A lovely surprise this morning!


I was not expecting to see my daughter Rachel before her and my grandaughter Maddison set off early to drive to Colchester to spend Christmas with Lauren , our eldest grandaughter who is expecting her first child in February.
Imagine my surprise when Rachel came with these beautiful flowers saying that she had to see me before they left !
It brought a tear to my eye!

We will miss them all tomorrow, but are hopefully planning to have our Christmas Day on New Years day when Lauren and Beckah will be coming over too!
