Still no Molly2

She is not for coming into this world as yet. Went for a 'sweep and stretch today, and almost got a space on labour ward, but Dr. came down and was too busy, so we had to come home and go back on Thursday, where she will be induced if needed. Charlotte was really upset, but was OK when she got a fish butty down her. Given that I have the interview on Thursday, it is ironic they want her in, but I will go and meet her in the hospital if needed. So we are back home, and continue to wait.

Again no Tony and Gordon updates today,
so another interesting fact about them both

The May 1997 general elections, in which Blair

was elected prime minister, gave the

Labour Party the largest victory in its history.


Gordon Brown was appointed as Chancellor

of the Exchequer on 2 May 1997.


My Global thoughts...
Iran situation seems to be edging closer. I remember in the film 'Threads' little snippets of news were audible in the background of the film. For those listening it was the build up to what culminated in a nuclear strike on s mostly unaware Sheffield.
Keeping me smiling ...
The weather. One would think we are still in the depths of winter. Snow storms, gales. Additionally everyone says you will live on a mountain.

Hopes for tomorrow...
Molly, but I am OK if it means she has to go in on Thursday

Hi Paul,

I stumbled across your blog and just had to leave a comment - I hope the fact that you haven't made an entry for so long means that your new little girl has arrived safely!

Nice to see another Northerner on blogspot - I'm a Teesside girl myself, though I'm currently living in London. 2006 is going pretty well for me so far. You can read all about it at www.akaikutsudoeslondon.blogspot.com.

I hope you've sorted out your work situation too - I was unemployed for a couple of months at the beginning of the year and it's not nice, I know.

Good luck with it all,
