Just an ordinary miracle

Just over a year ago, on her wedding day in January 2014, I told the story of my precious first born and the ordinary miracle of her birth.  Harrison Fisher’s charming Edwardian and art deco vintage postcards, along with Laurie Lee’s words about his own precious First Born, beautifully illustrated her and her beloved’s engagement and wedding.  At the time, I didn’t want to tempt fate by publishing on my post the very last postcard in Harrison Fisher’s series.

Today, I can show you that final postcard.

Harrison Fisher - Their new love

Welcome to the world to my first grandchild, a darling little boy, A.J.D., who arrived into the world yesterday morning at 3:08am (GMT) 9 February 2015 weighing in at a whooping 8lb 15oz.

Congratulations to my beautiful girl and her lovely husband – a precious couple’s new life as a family about to start with their own ordinary miracle: their First Born.


Book writing and blog posting is firmly on hold for a few days but I will be continuing to write “Saffron Walden Through Time” and “Sudbury, Lavenham and Long Melford Through Time” very soon.

  1. How wonderful. Congratulations! :~))

  2. Congratulations! And a lovely picture. I’m sure you’ll enjoy being a grandma as much as I do. Seeing our two boys, now 16 and nearly 14, always gives me a special thrill, and watching them grow up under the careful nurturing of our daughter is just wonderful.

    I hope you are all thoroughly enjoying the newest family twiglet and that all are well if a little sleep-deprived.
