The way we were...5 years ago...

Today marks the first anniversary since our wonderful Hildie died.

So I thought it would be nice to post the text of an email I received from her dughter Kelly a few days ago.

 'Hi Ian
Just a quick news bulletin to let you know our baby boy arrived on 20th Jan, we have named him Albie Christopher Adair, he weighed 9lb 1oz and is already looking like he'll be tall! I had a lovely calm home birth in a water pool, just as we had hoped. How lovely it was to just go up to our own bed with our new addition!
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind to say the least! Nothing quite prepares you for this, hard work but amazing.
Anyway, Albie needs a feed so I'll send this now. Hope you are in good fettle!

When Kelly sends a photo, I'll post that, too!
