New Beginnings

Baby Gwen 15 minutes old with her dad

As we struggle through these difficult times with stories of illness and death all around us, I have been fortunate this week to see a new beginning; the birth of my granddaughter, Gwen Francesca.

My daughter and her partner enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the Midwife Unit at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and were discharged a few hours after the birth with their precious 7 lb 1oz bundle.

She is now at home and thanks to technology I have been able to receive and forward photographs and watch videos of these first special days.

A first cuddle is, of course, going to have to wait.

I will try to be patient, along with all the many people who are keeping their distance to protect their loved ones.

Meantime I shall use this spare time productively; continuing to research and write my first novel which has now grown to 19,000 words.
