Holly Christmas

I’ve waited for years for it to snow like it has to take photographs in a snowy cemetery and now that it has, I can’t get out to take advantage of it. BAH BLOODY HUMBUG!


Amanda Norman is a Grandma

grandchild HollyThe reason is that last night on the 22nd of December, little Holly arrived weighing in at 7lb 12oz.  I’m now officially a grandma and my time will be taken up helping my daughter.

Isn’t she a beauty?

Hopefully she will be coming home tomorrow and I am excited, so if I’m being honest, I don’t mind too much that I can’t visit the cemetery.  I bet you any money that as grandchild Hollysoon as I’m able to visit, the snow would have melted and then I’ll have to wait another 50yrs, ‘she says sarcastically’.

I don’t like the word ‘grandma’ or ‘nana’ or ‘granny’ or ‘grandmother’.  In my mind they represent grey haired women who sit around knitting and looking forward to spoiling their grandkids with sweets and cake.  I’m not even 40yrs old!  I need a modern name that sounds good or else I will have to stick with ‘granny Mandy’.  Hmmm!

Any ideas on a modern name?
