New arrival

The blog's been a wee bit quiet this past few weeks - I went into hospital last Saturday, 3rd July, and delivered a 7lb12 baby boy, who we've named Alexander Joseph Wright.

I'd
really like to thank all the staff at the Princess Royal, who were very helpful, patient and supportive. They helped me get breastfeeding established, despite some initial difficulties, for which I'm hugely grateful. I really couldn't have coped without them.
Thanks also to Gordon Thomson, who did a lovely write-up in the
Evening Times on Wednesday. It was nice to come home to!

I'm really looking forward to getting out and about over the summer and introducing wee Alexander to the world!

Congratulations BB.
I am sure he will grow up to have his own opinion, but a possible extra SNP vote for the 2027 Holyrood Elections is always welcome!
Who knows, we may even have had an Independence Referendum by then?!

Congratulations folks. Sorry I'm a bit late. Was in London last week and the papers there didn't seem to cover it!
