Baby North arrived at 2.20am on Monday 25 March (8lb 1oz), safe and sound, in our front room, with his three siblings sleeping upstairs. Tara is a natural childbirth goddess. She laboured through the rooms of our house with no drugs, no gas and air, just breathing, a high pain threshold and determination. I am so grateful to her for how she brings our children into the world.

There will be no classes this week (25-29 March). I will be settling North in and looking after the other three children. I do plan to be back teaching next Monday (1 April).

Thank you so much for your love and support that was so important in guiding North to us safely. See you soon.
