Born On The Fourth Of July

Our son was born at 12.26 am last monday morning. A little porker of 7lb 11 with dad’s hair and mum’s nose. I am bursting with admiration for the multinational staff of Whipps Cross Hospital and for Mrs TIW who endured a 26-hour labour. Sorry. A bit too knackered to write any more for the moment. God bless the NHS.
