a HUGE announcement

Christmas 2016 was brilliant for me this year, Matt too. 

A little strange for the family, as it was the first one without my beloved Granddad. Christmas was completely his thing, he would have had the biggest dinner, completely spoilt his dog, and watched all of the tacky films on TV. Throughout the whole day, all of us brought him into conversation with "Granddad would love this" or "Granddad would have that". It was tough to say the least, but we got through it happily because that's exactly what he would of wanted, in fact he would've hated so much attention on him so I expect us even chatting about him, would've made him shudder! 

This Christmas was especially special, as I had the very best present for my family. Id teased my dad, telling him it was the best present yet, I'm not sure he expected this though. 

I couldn't believe it myself, but the day after my Granddad passed away, Matt & me discovered we're going to be bringing our own little miracle into the world, I'm pregnant! We are so excited and so overwhelmed with emotions, but cannot wait to become parents. I told my dad by giving him a note on the back of a photo of him & Granddad. this is what it said;

My Dad & Granddad. 

This is the man that without realising taught you how to be a dad, 
and a brilliant one at that.
He was the kindest, most selfless, genuine bloke all of us, have ever met. 
You brought me up the way you did because of the brilliant role model you had,
because of Granddad you knew how to be the best dad possible & I'm sure you'll
agree that he was the best dad to you too. On the 12th of November Granddads time 
came and it was a massive shock to all of us, the worst possible day imaginable. 
What I think none of us expect is for something good to come of it. The day after
Granddads passing, Matt & me discovered that we are going to bring our very own little mini me 
into the world. You're going to be a Granddad!  If you're going to be anything like he was,

you'll be the absolute best. 

Lotsa love,


  1. Congratulations! It seems like 2017 will be the best yet for you.

  2. Wow, congratulations! I bet you're thrilled! 2017 will be amazing for you and I can't wait to hear all about your journey :) xo
