New Year, New Life

Last year was one of the most unsettling and stressful of my entire life, so I have been looking forward to 2012 with unusual optimism. However, I didn’t for one minute think that the early hours of the New Year would bring me this:

My gorgeous little boy, I can’t begin to tell you how adorable he is and what a way to start the New Year!
One minute I was listening to fireworks across Stevenage, the next I was in a hospital lift telling the midwife I needed to push…

I’m feeling really optimistic about 2012, I think this may well be my best year yet!
