Oh my poor neglected blog. It seems I had so much more to say when my love life was sordid and depraved. Since the arrival of Subtle in my life, I really don't seem to have as much to say anymore. And I daresay that this will continue for a little while yet. But we shall see.
Nearly four weeks ago, on 8 September, our lives changed forever. In such a short time, so many changes have occurred and things will never be the same again. On that day, Lucy arrived.
We had planned to try a natural birth, but she had other ideas. We were told to expect a big baby, but she proved everyone wrong. I was shocked when she arrived. This squishy, red, puffy, strange looking little thing couldn't possibly be ours, could it? But within a day, with the puffiness gone, and the strangeness starting to grow on me, I realised she was mine and she is beautiful.
