Welcome to the world

Ooh Lordy, I’m a Dad. And, of course, Sandra’s a Mum. She had to do all the hard stuff while I just kind of lurked and offered useful advice. You know, things like “breathe” and “push”. There was a fair amount of toing and froing to different hospitals and things got slightly fraught towards the end, but all is well - Isla Rose Davis was born on 15 November 2005 at 9.04pm in Bath’s Royal United Hospital weighing a svelte 5lb 13oz. She’s beautiful, Sandra was awesome and I’m very, very happy. Babies rock!

    Yay! Another one :-) Not an ideal choice if your surname happens to be White or Mann, though ;-)

    Woo yay hoopla. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: that’s really, really cool, and I’m jolly happy for you all.

    Love and kisses,
