Alice has gone into into hospital to have the baby. We drove down this afternoon with a view to getting in everybody's way. We're in a Leicester hotel now (actually outside the city, near the village of Broughton Astley)- waiting for news.|
You're getting the full dose of Major Life Events this week, aren't you?
EDITED TO ADD: And you're just a hop, a skip and a jump from Bosworth...

I don't think we'll be visiting the battlefield on this trip, but there'll be many other occasions.
Life and death, death and life.
Funny old world, isn't it?
Best wishes that everything goes smoothly.
This is so extremely exciting for you both! Please be sure to let us all know soonest! Blessings to all!
May it all go well. And as others have said...you are experiencing the full cycle of life.
I remember when we were at my uncle's funeral a few years ago and one of his sons, my cousin, got a call on his mobile from his son-in-law that my cousin's first grandchild had just been born. A celebration of a life lived and one just begun all in one. It was lovely.
Yes, I can imagine.
