You just never know

It is true - you just never know what is around the corner.  Today we have heard about a new grandson for the FH, but the poor wee lad is the centre of a custody battle and is presently a ward of court, so lots of prayers and support are needed there.  He doesn't even have a name yet but I feel like I should give him a nickname of some kind for now, so I am going to call him FGS for FenGrandSon like we have the EFG/YFG for the girls.  We are hoping to see him soon - he's in hospital but not too far away.  The girls have done me proud today with their expressions of support for their half-brother, and I am so pleased with their reactions, especially as the path in front of everyone involved is going to be a rocky one for a while.

I'm still recovering from the end of last week, and have had a kind of slow day, with just a few things achieved, but I have got to get into gear as I am hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday so I have lots of baking to get done before then...I think I know what I am going to make, and Twinks Hobnobs are high on the list, with ginger cake and a lemon sponge.  I think that the new recipe Chocolate Brownies should also feature.  Anyone else having a coffee morning?  What are you baking?

I hope things don't get nasty with the custody and you get to see your grandson soon.

What a sad start to a little new life. Let's hope things get sorted ASAP. And having no name is also Heartbreaking.

Such a sad start for your little FGS. Hope it is all sorted very soon. I am not holding a Coffee Morning on Friday, but cooking for a friend who IS having a coffee/lunch open house. Will be doing small choc, plain and coffee and walnut buns and the famous Bakewell Tart cake (bbc good food mag!) best recipe EVER!!!!

Hope little FGS is well and healthy and that the custody is sorted out for him soon. Big hug for the little fella.
I will be heading across to Norwich on Friday morning so will hope to find coffee & perhaps a cake for the McMillan coffee morning - there's bound to be a sign somewhere!
Good luck with all your baking - I love Twinks hobnobs!
