• On the beach

    May 13, 2012

    We’ve just arrived home from a long weekend in Bournemouth, where the sun actually shone for us, for a change. We were there to help my brother move house (although my contribution to helping mainly involved sitting around and feeding the baby – the most important job though, right?).

  • That’s my boy…

    April 23, 2012

    Today Eliza and I took a trip back to King’s College Hospital for my final post-pregnancy appointment at the haematology clinic.

Having a baby is everything everyone’s told you, and at the same time, nothing like it at all: it’s relentless, unpredictable, good, not…

  • Welcome to the world, Eliza Grace

    February 9, 2012

                Baby C, aka Eliza Grace, was born in the early hours of last Thursday morning at King’s College Hospital in south London, weighing 6 lbs 10. Although she looks a lot like Alex, especially with her dark hair, she’s inherited my impatience gene; she took just under 10 hours…
