I've come to visit her for a big cook up. She wants to feel organised before she takes on the challenges of being a parent. I remember that feeling well. So I offered to come and cook some meals with her. My eldest, Lou Lou, kindly offered to have the young ones so that I could be available.
Rosie and her partner are renting an old, simple but comfortable home. Their oven doesn't work so we decided on stove top meals, wrote our list and went shopping for the ingredients.
It's amazing what you can achieve with no little ones to supervise. We've cooked up spaghetti bolognaise, chilli con carne, chicken paprika and some chow mein. Somehow it was easy because we were working side by side and enjoying each others company.
Now the meals are done, the kitchen's clean with the dishes put away. We're ready. And now we wait.
It won't be long until we meet this new little person. Rosie's at the exciting last stage of pregnancy. The time when there are twinges.. tightenings of the tummy that make you wonder......
