Despite the way of the world, good things still happen and we now have Caitlin Rose Birch to admire and be grateful for. She has the same birthday, 22nd February, as John Hargreaves Jnr. who is thriving in Melbourne. Congratulations to Wishaw General, Maternity Unit who gave Emily, Richard and Caitlin such excellent service. Well done one and all. Now the fun begins! Too early to tell though whose genes she might have. I can officially confirm that there wasn’t any red hair in evidence but we left Richard pondering the complexities of the “sweepstake”. He may need an Open University Maths degree to sort things out.
