Choose a Bright Morning, Clara















Yesterday dawned brilliantly bright and sunny up here in Derbyshire, a suitably auspicious day for the arrival of Clara Eloise Linford at 9.23am. She weighed 6lb 9oz - a little smaller than her brother George - and of course she is beautiful.

"Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37, v4

Congratulations, Paul!

Up here in Yorkshire they reckon "you're not a real man till you've made a girl."

Incidentally, Eloise is not really a Damned song, Toque - the 1968 original was by Barry Ryan.

There's also a Cleaners from Venus song called Clara Bow on their lost classic album from 1987, Going to England.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes, it's been quite a week! Apologies for the lack of posts but I'm sure you understand. I'll be back on the blog in the next couple of days or so I expect.
