Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether summer clothe the general earth
With greeness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the nigh thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

Kaitlyn's Big Day

Not much time for blogging today, it was my grand-daughters dedication which takes the place of a christening for her. The church my son and daughter-in-law attend is full of really delightful,friendly people but must be one of the ugliest church buildings in the country! Consequently the background to the photos is less than great.The pastor is an Irishman,charming and very funny which compensates for the lack of pretty surroundings. Above is Kaitlyn with her mum Hannah, my daughter and her partner to the right and 'my husband and I' as the Queen would say,to the left. No disrespect intended, I'm a staunch Royalist. Incidentally we aren't all a foot taller than Hannah - it's just that we are standing on a grassy bank and Hannah is on the path!

Kaitlyn with both sets of grandparents, mum and dad,her two aunts and four uncles.Also on the photo but invisible is Kaitlyn's cousin to be, due in March!
Great grandma was also there and it's only just occurred to me that she should have been on the photo as well.
Afterwards there was 'a bit of a do' at Hannah's mum and dad's house, it's been a really good day and the star of the show was as good as gold the whole time.
