and now introducing Martha Mai

Rubi-Sue has got a little sister .She arrived on Sunday afternoon.7th August, at 12 minutes to 3. Checking in at 8lbs 6ozs. Her name is Martha Mai and she is so far as good as gold. We saw her for the first time today.My mum -as great-granny was quick to get hold of her and nurse her.Then it was great grandads turn and finally proud dad Nicholas took over. I had pet lamb called Martha when I was young.When this Martha gets to an age when she can read I have my Little Martha book from Blackberry Farm which will have been read to me hundreds of time to give her. Also we have photos of me feeding her when the bottle was nearly as big as myself I would only be about 3. What a wonderful life when a child is brought up on a farm. As Jack was born on a farm too he has the same sort of memories. Better than any plastic toy or game.I suppose our main toys would be a farmyard with little lead animals which I had handed down from my dad and uncles. Nicholas used to play with them and they are now waiting for the next generation to play with.
