On a personal note can I just thank everyone who has sent their best wishes to my mother. She was able to leave hospital only after 6 hours and best of all nothing terrible was found! She has spent the day with me (yeah - I even took a day off!) infront of the fire watching births on the Living Channel ( or something!) and trying not to push when it was the second stage!
Seriously though, I have been so touched by the kindness of the blog community, the thoughtful comments and the caring of strangers...are we strangers...I don't feel we are! :)
