Great News!

Matt and Sarah

It makes a great change here at Garybuie to be announcing the future arrival of something other than chicks or ducklings! On this occasion, the disclosure of a spring-time arrival of our first grandchild definitely evokes excitement of a cork-popping, bell-ringing, flag-waving  standard! Matt and Sarah, married a couple of years ago, are the parents-to-be and after getting to grips with the whole Skype thing on our respective laptops, it was great to toast them face-to-face earlier this week. Anyway, babies take longer to ‘hatch’ than chickens  so there’s a long time to wait before the champagne puts in another appearance!

Meanwhile, returning to youngsters of a more feathery nature, the muscovy ducklings are now three weeks old and all fourteen have survived so far! Puff and Biggles are particularly pleased with themselves I think, as obviously the shared parenting has been a big success! Anyway, I thought that you might like to take alook at some ‘ducky action’…

Enjoying the sunshine with mum(s)

P.S. I wrote this blog yesterday but then between guests arriving and me having trouble with this lap top, I didn’t manage to publish it. So, as I return to publishing duties today, there’s even greater news to add – IT’S TWINS!

    Thanks Jenny, we’re all still a bit shell-shocked – not least the parents-to-be! Matt sent us pictures of the ultra-sound ‘discovery’ and it’ fascinating (and a bit emotional) to see our grandchildren so early in their lives!
