1st Blog – A New Grandchild

In a life that is normally fairly uneventful, it is pleasing that my very first blog post can be about the birth of my third grandchild earlier today. Although I am neither the father or the mother, I did spend the weekend performing like a hen on hot bricks. Childbirth is very safe nowadays, however it is not risk free, so as well as being overjoyed at the birth of a granddaughter, there is overwhelming relief that mother and baby are both well. Having encouraged my children go forth and seek their fortune I now find that it will be some time before I see the sprog, but greatly looking forward to that day.
