I would like to send a quick message of thanks to all of our wonderful players and chat hosts who have been so kind in sending my wife and I their congratulations following the birth of our son Oliver, who was born on Wednesday 28th December.
He was born exactly two weeks after his due date, and proved to be very cosy in his mother’s womb that he did everything he could to stay in there! Melissa woke up on Christmas Day having contractions, but in typical style he still was in no rush and eventually had to be induced days later and finally dragged out with forceps!
I honestly don’t know how you ladies do it. It was tiring enough just being there at the bedside!
Anyway, mother and baby are both doing brilliant, and although I find myself seeing in the New Year with my wife fast asleep I wouldn’t change it for the world. We’ve never been happier and I know I am going enjoy being a father very much.
Here’s to a hopefully happy and prosperous 2012.
Also, congratulations to rubensol, artsgirl, carol7, mimi21 and xxstitches49xx who each won FB£1,000 in our Guess the Date/Weight forum competition. Blondecoll was selected from all entries as our random winner of the Bingo Scotland teddy.
