Girl or a boy?

I walked down to the White Swan to watch Sunderland v Blackburn last night to get out of the way while Bev entertained her friend. It turned out that her friend entertained her. I, on the other hand was not entertained in the least.

It was a disappointing performance over the 90 minutes. They drew a blank, unlike Sarah Louise who managed to get a result after extra time.

Sarah wanted to call us herself, which she did, an hour or so after giving birth (just before midnight, I think) to an 8lb 3oz girl (I think!) I know it was a girl but not sure about the weight. Can't you just tell it's a bloke writing this.

They, like us, enjoyed their first sleepless night.

So, I was 100% wrong about her being a boy. Finlay will have to wait a little longer, I guess.

Welcome to Earth baby girl with dark hair who has no name...we love you already and look forward to seeing you soon.


  1. Congratulations, what a joyous time for you. The birth should make you forget football, at least for a while. Have a happy day.

  2. Congratulations! How wonderful :)

  3. Congratulations!! What happy news!!

  4. What a fine note Ken "we love you already and look forward to seeing you soon" - am sure the little one will share many smiles with you - warmly !

  5. I found you comment on Willow's blog and had to look you up. The way you worded your comment I knew you had to be British. Glad I found you days at a time...it's ok if it's only weekly. I'll be back!

  6. Thanks for your congratulations everyone. We get to see her tomorrow.
    You were wrong about football Valerie. We said goodbye to our special visitor tonight (baby edith) and I switched on just in time to watch a fantastic Spurs game.

    Welcome Kim...hope you enjoy dropping in from time to time.
