Our granddaughter Melissa gave birth to a healthy little girl named Piper an hour or so ago!

I always thought that we were "great" grandparents but this is official and we really are and it takes our family to a new level.

We are so excited!

Liss had a caesarian section and so we will wait 'till Saturday to go and see them.

Another generation of little diggers kicks off!

I actually haven't had a drink for 14 months!

Last night I poured myself a Glenfiddich to toast the baby and after a sip tipped it down the sink. Bloody paint stripper!

We're up early to go and see them today, it's a bit of a drive!

We are both excited about seeing our "girls" and I'll try and get a nice photo of them for you.
