I’ve been thinking abut the night before my daughters birth.I went into labour during the night , it was a huge storm & flooding everywhere.Lots of dramatic thunder & lightening & trees down.The midwife had to climb over a fallen tree blocking the road in order to get to my house, power cuts & candles, a long night & at 8.50 am, my lovely daughter was born.
And now onto the nerdy bit …………
