There seems to be just a few inches between where Tilly’s huge, broad belly ends and the ground starts. She has that tired yet peaceful expression that varies between lightly annoyed with any attention to thoughtfully disinterested.
The due date is today but Kelly says there’s nothing in particular that makes tonight different as far as Tilly’s appearance or labour signs go.
Her pony companion keeps her alert and in fact, the only time when Tilly shows some energetic reaction is when she loses sight of Rosie.
She eats her dinner slowly, deliberately. The sun is warm on her back. The evening is beautiful, calm, filled with bird songs and a fresh breeze. You might say, a perfect evening for a new life to arrive 🙂
