The latest arrival...

I've written a few posts about our recent day trips to Toowoomba to visit DsD1 as she awaited the birth of her baby. Despite being hospitalised for weeks due to a few complications, finally our newest granddaughter, Abigail,  arrived safely on February 27.
So the next day, DH and I set off for another trip to Toowoomba. It had to be a day trip only as I had promised to step up for 'grandma duties' the next day with 2 of our Brisbane granddaughters. I thought about taking flowers to the new mum (and dad) but we had ended up buying a Ruby Red Shoes doll from a local gift store, so that was our gift...

Big cousin, Anthea was visiting with her mum and she gave our gift the 'thumbs up'...

The obligatory cuddles...

DH and I had planned to have lunch at the Toowoomba City Golf Club as we knew how crowded that hospital room would get as the morning went on...and we were right! And after lunch we would go back to the hospital again before heading back home.
Our lunch view while we ate our delicious food...

And best of all, our lunch companions were a fellow blogger and her friend. It was wonderful meeting Nanna Chel in person!

 PS
We bought Ruby Red Shoes, the Hare, on the recommendation of the owner of our local gift shop. I've since discovered that there is a series of Ruby Red Shoes books, ( and other merchandise) all written by a Brisbane author Kate Knapp. Read about Ruby here
