The Birthing Centre


Our family to day celebrated 2 new births and one imminent birth, with our daughters Vanessa, Nicla and Rachael, along with husbands Alex and Mark, joined by grandchildren Declan and Liam and visiting friend Helga.

Vanessa, who is pictured directly above is expecting a baby girl in the next few days.Her husband Mark is soon to become DR after 5 years of hard part time study. Can you notice how he cradles his PHD publication, a birth of all 360 type written pages without alteration from his supervisors. .

Above is Rachael, who proudly gave birth to her permaculuturally based veggie garden.

Wow. My best wishes to your Vanessa as well as the rest of the family.

One of my readers thinks my "sinking" blogroll has something to do with the "text read size". If it's anything other than medium, the sidebar falls down. ???

Congratulations, Grampa!

Let's be clear - are the two births the PHD and the garden (I can see the lovely imminent birth in the photo)?

In any case, you have a wonderful family. I think you've given birth to a fine burst of pride...

Hi Dad,

I've put an article on my Less is More blog about the garden to. Have a look.

How joyous it is to focus on new life whether it be in the birth of a new born baby, a new qualification or a new project. It's been 5 months since the birth of my son Liam, but each day is a new chapter.. a new challenge.. a new joy.

Thanyou all for your comments-just one human birth gary -you are correct.Only one stork for a baby girl, ..... But I dont know about Grandpa---since as Nicla, the mother who commented above, would know I am referred to as Doo Dad. One day I might have to get used to being called grandpa.
