The Bump........................"There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge."..................
All rabbits need a pocket watch for it is rude to be late for tea, which inevitable..... too many distractions......a daisy......a primrose.......something new..... forever running late for one reason or another but they are reliable and always turn up.
Our bump also lost his pocket watch............... I sent captain rupert to find the white rabbit.........
to see if he could help.............. he did eventually after an extra large helping of carrot cake.
They found the pocket watch among the daffodils.......... the loud ticking gave the game away........but it had lost its minute hand.
A clock mender was what was needed thought the mad hatter......The doormouse yawned and sleepily said he knew a good one....... Off Captain Rupert went with a leap and a bounce and a stop here and there to nibble all the yummy spring flowers......... The clock mender bent down and looked carefully and said I'm sorry I will have to order a new hand. I don't have any in stock which would suite such a fine pocket watch. Please come back next week..........
and captain rupert did and the watch had a shiny new minute hand..........

The 1st of April the bump arrived 19 days late (because he lost his pocket watch) weighing almost 10 lbs.

Wow! Congratulations- how beautiful! Well done you! I discovered your blog a while ago, and have not summoned up the courage yet to send you a message, but this amazing news certainly merits a message! You may not remember me but I did some work for you a long time ago in Bristol, and when that finished you gave me some of your cards- hence finding your blog. It's really lovely to see you so happy! Love Rachaelxx (now Mum to a 16 month old bump who also appeared quite late!)

What a gorgeous little bump. You must be so very proud of him. I'm sure you'll help him remember his pocket watch in future. Best wishes to you and your new family.

Ordered some cards from you a few weeks ago (which have been greatly admired) but have never left a message before. However I just had to offer my congratulations on the birth of your beautiful son. I too have been checking in daily. Well done!

He's absolutely gorgeous! I wish I could reach in and pick him up! And looking very smart dressed in matching boating attire. Well done and congratulations.x

Amanda said...

Oh Joanna, he is absolutely gorgeous and now that he has arrived he has Captain Rupert to ensure he never loses his pocket watch again (...or will Captain Rupert be hiding it to have a little laugh now and then with his new best friend?)

I adored your story and again wonder why you do not write more of them :o) 19 days late, eh? Golly... no wonder he was a very healthy weight of 10 pounds - gosh!! Hope you are doing well - I've been eagerly checking in each day waiting for this post to see you are all ok!!

Take care and enjoy these special days of getting to know each other!

Congrats!! Ah now I understand your email!! I got the wrong end of the stick. I thought you were wheeling Captain Rupert around in the pram as practice!! (Don't ask!!! I think I am going a bit loopy!!) :-) Anyway, wishing you lots of joy and happiness with your beautiful, precious bump xx

Hi Joanna,
congratulations. He's absolutely gorgeous. Been wondering how you were and if the baby had arrived. So enjoyed meeting you at the V&H fair in Nov. Would be lovely to meet up with the babies some day soon.
With love Alice & Rufus (from Ginny's flour loft) xxx

Huge congratulations! What a very handsome lad you have there even if he did lose his timepiece! What does the Capt. think of him?

Elizabeth said...

This is so thrilling!
Captain Rupert will be thrilled to have such a charming companion and one that outweighs him at a stroke.
CONGRATULATIONS to all concerned.
This is Elizabeth who used to be in Marrakech but is now in NY!

Congratulations! woohoo! what a cute bump he is too! What does Cpt Rupert think? Rabbie Burns went to the Rainbow Bridge quite unexpectedly several weeks ago. We miss him terribly. There is a new little atom of rabbitness here now who greatly admires your rabbit pictures. ~Jane and the Fluffy Tribe

I think the dog buried my pocket-watch in the backyard, I am so woefully behind. Can't believe I missed this! Congrats to you (and yours) Joanna. He's beautiful. And huge (mine were nearly that large, but not quite. I feel for you!)

Hope you are all well and happy!

Jemjoop said...
