Hi all, you have probably been aware that of late my blog posts have dried up a little, well there is a good reason for this and that is the new member of our household.
I’m pleased as punch to introduce to you baby Hector, born on the 31st of January at 22:55.


This is my first and I’m sure bringing up a little one is hard enough, nevermind doing it sustainably. I’m sure you will all have great fun at my expense as I try to bring up little Hector the self sufficient way.

Welcome to the world Hector.
