Regular readers will remember that last November, we had a new baby in the family. My cousin’s daughter gave birth to a lovely little girl. She named her Violet, after my late mother, with a middle name of Rose, after my grandmother. This moved me immensely, to know that my mum’s name would live on in our family.
Last week, we went down to Essex to visit her. She is now nine months old, and still such a joy. Always happy, rarely crying.
It was great to see her three days in a row, and to watch her playing with the toys I had brought her.
Our family continues, into the next generation. My mum would be so proud and pleased.
