New lifeforms

Two of my friends in different parts of the country both welcomed new lifeforms onto Planet Earth recently – the Silvereel and Mrs Silvereel welcomed their second child (which means by law they now have to get a puppy and probably a kitten as well) while my mate Paul and his other half Gemma had their first after a long latent labour (poor Gem, that kind of thing makes me very glad to be male and not to have to worry about that). Paul’s just set up a new blog The New Dad’s Diary – be interesting to see if the demands of new parenthood leave him enough time to keep it up! Suitably enough little Niamh Louise, after much delay, arrived on the 6th of June – D-Day!! Big hugs and congratulations to them all.
