It's a boy!

Our 4th grandchild, the first child for Nº 3 son and wife, was born at 6 p.m. last night, weighing in at 8lb 6oz (3.86 Kg in new money). It seemed to me quite a complicated labour but my best beloved, who was a midwife in one of her previous incarnations, assures me that it was not unusual for a first pregnancy. Mother and babe are apparently doing well and they're expecting to go home today.

We don't yet know what his name is. Erin Mae would no doubt suggest something exceedingly Irish but, since we travelled south on Tuesday, we haven't had the opportunity of asking her and by the time we get back it will be too late!

We're looking forward to making the acquaintance of the little fella before we pick up on our summer's boating plans. Meanwhile we came down to the Cliff House at Barton-on-Sea this morning for a celebratory coffee.
