Merry Christmas! - 2016

Just a few days before Christmas...
It was a long time since we left the residents of Rosemary Hill, and I know I owe You some stories about Jane and Charles. This little family's life was as busy as mine, but now, they can also rest a bit and enjoy the holidays. 

Jane's 35th birthday has come and she got the most beautiful gift: they became a bigger family. Her baby girl is eight months old now, looks like her father, Charles, who is very proud. Emma turned six and next year will go to school. She loves her sister and always would like to take care of her alone, without their mother's help. The baby is calm and cheerful. She enjoys the love and care that surrounds her. 

This year they bought a really big Christmas tree. The whole family had a funny time decorating it with the old ornaments Jane took out of a shoebox. 

It was time to make some new family photos.

Charles made also a selfie of themselves: 

Then they sat down to the table and lit the four candles on the Advent wreath:

There are busy days ahead: hard working, moving again, preparing for the wedding, changes in physical world and also in mind to get a better and less stressful life. But these few days before Christmas are still theirs, together in peace and love.
Dear Readers, Followers, Friends and Dolly Fellows!
We wish You a heartwarming and joyful Merry Christmas! Big hugs from Rosemary Hill! :)

Our little story stopped a few month ago so I owe You some to tell.
It was in the beginning of April when Jane and Charles decided to make some changes in their home. Mainly because they got wooden pallets with the help of Christopher. Charles thought it would be great to make new furnitures for the living room so he compiled a sofa. They still needed a mattress but it worked with beddings also very well. 

The second reason that there was a guest on way who will spend time with them for a while. Charles went to the airport to pick up this guest...

She was an elegant woman with short black hair. She wore red pantsuit and carried a big suitcase. 

Charles greeted her with a kiss and big hug.

Charles: Hello, Mom. Welcome here.

Rosie: Oh, my dear! I am so happy to arrive. I missed you so much...

Charles: Is everything all right?

Rosie: Oh, no... One of my suitcases... It seems it lost or they brought it to the wrong plane. Very annoying.

Charles: Don't worry. I'll ask them at the customer service.

Rosie: It is just what I needed...

Charles: Never mind, Mom. You know what, I'll call Francie. Maybe she can help us to act quickly.

Rosie: Look how short my mind is... You are right, after all your cousin works at this airline. When I am nervous I can't thinking.

Charles: Good. Now let me show our new car. Last time you didn't see it.

Rosie: And your brother? Where is he now?

Charles: He isn't in town. You know he would come with me but he couldn't cancel this meeting.

Rosie: Is that a lumberjack stuff or something with a normal job?

Charles: Don't do that, Mom. I don't know but sure Chris will tell you. I don't want to argue about him at the moment.

Rosie: Right... And how about Jane and the baby?

Charles: I'll tell you the news in the car. The way isn't too short to home.

At that time Jane sat in the living room to rest a bit before her mother-in-law arrives. Charles asked her not to cleaning or doing anything exacting but she was a bit excited about the house. The baby was also heavy now, it hurted here and there and she couldn't sleep well for days so that was a hard time for Jane.

She had a feeling that this new baby won't be in her current residence for too long. Emma also arrived sooner so Jane closed her eyes and kindly asked her second child to stay there a little more.

'You are our April child, so be good and not born before that month...' - she sighed.

A few minutes later Emma came into the living room. She jumped onto the sofa. 

Emma: Mommy, are you sleeping? 

Jane: No I am not. Come and give me a kiss. 

Emma: What is the baby doing now? 

Jane: She have heard your voice. I think she woke up. Come and see.

Emma: She kicked me! She want me. She would like to play with me. 

Jane: I am sure. Do you love her? 

Emma: Yes. But I don't now what her name is.

Jane: We still didn't decide.

Emma: Decide??? Chazzy and you? Why do you have to decide it? 

Jane: When a child is born, they parents give him or her a name. So did we with your daddy when you was born. 

Emma: I think we should name her Barbie. Or Hermione.

Jane: These are beautiful names but we prefer Charlotte or Kate. We couldn't decide yet. What do you think of this two names? 

Emma: I think Hermione or Sleeping Beauty would be better. She isn't kicking now. Good night, baby! 

She gave  a kiss to her mommy's belly. After a few minutes they could hear the family car arriving. 

They heard the door and some quick steps coming closer.

Jane: Rosie! I was beginning to worry that the plane was delayed.

Rosie: Good to be here, Jane. Oh no, the plane arrived in time but there was some confusion with my packages. 

Jane: Oh, no...

Rosie: Charles is speaking by phone with his cousin, Francie. Do you know her? 

Jane: Not yet, but I know she works as a stewardess.

Jane: And how was your flight? 

Rosie: Pretty good. And you? Charles told me that the baby growing fast. How is my little grandchild? 

Jane: We are well, thank you. I am just tired a lot. 

Rosie: Oh, I remember... Chris was the bigger baby but Charles was the strongest. He made everything sooner than the others. 

Jane: I hope you will tell me more about his childhood. Please, sit down.

Rosie: It will be a long story... And Emma? Where are you, my dear? I brought you a little gift. 

Emma: I am here, Rosie. 

Rosie: How big girl you are, sweetheart! I didn't see you since Christmas. So the gift is because I have heard that you would like to be a doll-collector. It is my childhood doll, Polly. She is very old but I hope you will love her as much as I did.   

Emma: I love her!! Thank you, Rosie!! 

Jane: What a beautiful present! I see her skirt is the original one. Go and play with her in your room Emma, we would like to chatting a bit before dinner.

Jane: How is your husband? 

Rosie: My man is very well, thank you. He is very busy now. If only Chris could help him but he won't ever follow his father I am afraid. It makes him so sad...

Jane: I hope he can join us soon. I would like to introduce you my mother. I thought if it won't be too tiring you could meet her tomorrow. 

Rosie: It would be my pleasure. Ah, I can hear Charles ended the phone conversation. Here he is.

Charles entered the room and sat down. 

Charles: Just as I thought, Your suitcase is on another plane... I told that Francie and fortunately she can bring it with her in the weekend. Was there anything important in it? 

Rosie: Oh, some gifts from your father and me and a few clothes... It is so unpleasant...

Jane: Never mind. If you need someting we can help. 

Charles (laughing): At least everybody will get to know each other before the baby is coming. Jane hasn't met my cousin yet. 

Rosie: On the way home in the car Charles told me your new wedding plans. I think it is a clever decision to wait a half year or so. You will have a lot to do after she was born. 

Charles: We don't have to hurry. The baby's and Jane's health is more important. 

Rosie: And now I am also here to help. 

Jane: Thank you, Rosie. 

Charles: Mom, I show you the guest room. You can rest a bit while I am prepaing the meal. 

Rosie: Good, just first, let me take some family portrait to your father. I think he can't wait the news so I would like to call him and send the pictures. 

So they took some photos: 

Charles: How are you, dear? 

Jane: I feel very tired... But very hungry, too. 

Charles: My poor thing... I need just ten minutes to finish the dinner.

Jane: I saw that you have tried something new.

Charles: Yes, I didn't make seafood before. I hope you will like it, darling.

Jane: Sure. I don't know what to do without you...

Charles (laughing): Or what to eat. You are expecting a baby and still so skinny... 

Jane: Just give me a kiss before leave...   

Charles: Be careful or I won't go to finish the food...

Jane: Really? 

Charles: I missed you all day.  

Jane: I love you...

Charles: Me too...

Jane: Just go now...

Charles: Just promise to save some kisses for me after dinner. Yesterday you fall asleep before I went to bed. 

Jane (laughing): You were in the bathroom for ages. I heard you singing, it was my lullaby.

Charles: This night I will hurry. Ten minutes babe.

Why I'm Away...

My Dear Friends and Followers,

We are still there, just a bit hidden.

A year later we have to move again. In a year we have to find a new flat and leave the one I rent now. It will be a hard farewell but I hope it will be better. I am working on to buy an own home. It sure will be a difficult but enjoyable journey!

I had another dream also I would like to come true for ages, and for that I made a new blog (without any dollies, this time :) ) a few weeks ago (before I got to know about moving), which You can read there: angyalzugoly.blogspot.hu
It is Hungarian but You can find a translation option on it. I would really like to know Your opinion about it so I appreciate comments :) Thank You!

So maybe I will have less time to write here but I still love this story, so I will be back as soon as possible :)

Jane and Charles send their greetings to You! They are very busy waiting the baby. They decided to postpone the wedding, but are still in love :) I will let You know when the big day has come.

Have a nice weekend Everyone!

With love,

The April Child

Jane: So, you told her.
Charles: Yes, I have just spoken with mom.
Jane: And what did you say exactly?
Charles: I said that in April she will be the grandmother of a beautiful, sweet, golden haired ... baby girl.
Jane (smiling): And what if she won't be golden haired?
Charles: I will thinking of that problem. But mom won't be so disappointed I suppose.
Jane: Was she happy?
Charles: Of course! After two bad boys... What do you think?
Jane: Were you both bad children? I  can't believe it.
Charles: You don't believe I was a naughty boy?
Jane: Of course, you was! I don't believe it about Christopher!
(both laughing)

Charles: Is everything all right? 
Jane: Yes, just my spine is aching.
Charles: It is becoming more common.
Jane: It is just a little nuisance...
Charles: Don't say that. Please be careful.
Jane: The doctor said... Thank you. So he said I should stop working in the library.
Charles: I agree. You have to stop climbing ladders and bringing heavy books.

Jane: I know. I don't do that for some time. But I feel that it will be harder and harder. So I will speak with my principal. She is already looking for a new colleague.
Charles: This will be the best. You can stay at home and get ready with the necessary stuffs.

Jane: I think we need some changes in the bedroom. Elinor said that she can give us Danny's old bed and pram.
Charles: Make a list about the things we have to buy. I don't really know what we need.
Jane: I will make the list. I will ask mom if she has any of Emma's baby clothes. I don't remember where we put them after the divorce.
Charles: We can buy new clothes, it isn't a problem.

Jane: You are so sweet. But Emma had some really nice and useful dress just like new ones. I would like to know whether we still have them or not.
Charles: Okay. So what about the names? Did you find one or two?
Jane: I think I like Charlotte, Anne and Cecily. But I don't really know...What about yours?

Charles: Uhh... I think... Julia... Kate... Umm... Emily...
Jane: Emily is not so good because of Emma...
Charles: Oh, really. But I don't like Cecily... I had a classmate who was very teasing...
Jane: Oh...

Charles: But we still have time...
Jane: Till April...
Charles: Till April. Do you think she is listening to us?
Jane: At the moment? I think she is sleeping...  She will wake up right after I go to bed.
Charles: You want me to talk to her little head?
Jane: You can make a try...

Jane: I love you, daddy...
Charles: I love you, beautiful mommy. More than life.
Jane: It sounds so good... Tell me more.
Charles: I will tell you every day till the end of my life.
Jane: Sssshhh... Don't say that way, my love.
Charles: You don't have to worry. I will always be with you.

Jane: With me and our April child. 
Charles: Always.
