Finally I am on maternity leave and the sun is shining. Definitely much better idea to have a baby in May rather than December (sorry Ethan!).
With a fortnight to go, more or less, it won’t be long until the new arrival is here and Ethan is a big brother. Watch this space…
Some of you may already have noticed me popping up on BBC South Today or heard my not-so-dulcet tones on Radio Solent, BBC Oxford and BBC Berkshire.
