Out first child Austin arrived Saturday evening weighing 8lb 7oz. We’re home now with Mum and Austin doing brilliantly.
Saturday I was meant to be appearing at the Jimmy’s Farm Sausage and Beer Festival in the morning and at a birthday party in the afternoon. But as I was packing the car my wife called downstairs and explained that Austin, due this Saturday coming, had other ideas.
Midwives, in order of appearance
Our stay at Colchester General Hospital was outstanding. We were delighted with the level of care we received. Everyone we met was lovely.
Midwives Saffron, Emma, Elaine, Vicky, Helen, Stephanie, Zoe and Jacqueline kept us informed, calm and, most importantly, confident at every turn.
And a Saturday night at the theatre has never been so entertaining – all the staff we met there were an absolute pleasure.
So I’ve got a bit behind with admin this weekend… if you’ve emailed or phoned about a party and not heard back yet, I’ll be in touch over the next day or two.
And finally, to Kate in charge of events at Jimmy’s Farm and to Mandy in Gosfield, I’m so sorry I couldn’t make it Saturday and thanks for being so understanding 🙂
