After lunch I watched the BBC presentation of the Six Nations rugby international between Scotland and Italy. The fact that I kept dozing off was probably more to do with my recovery process than the quality of the match.
We then had the wonderful surprise pleasure of a visit from our latest great niece, Ella Rose Milwain. Her lovely parents, Danni and Andy, came with her.
This sleepy little girl was ready for an immediate feed,
before being passed to her Grauntie Jackie
and on to her Gruncle Derrick (photos e-mailed by Danni).
After a happy couple of hours Ella woke up to play; first with her mother,
then with Jackie, before a last cuddle with Derrick and a journey back home with her parents.
Jackie took great delight in demonstrating the flexibility of the infant’s knees, just two weeks younger than my latest.
Jackie and I dined on flavoursome smoked haddock fish cakes; tasty ratatouille; creamy mashed potato; crunchy carrots, and tender runner beans.
I will now watch the Six Nations rugby match between England and Ireland, recorded from ITV’s earlier broadcast.
