In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been for a couple of weeks…

Since we reset our clocks to baby time on May 1 we’ve been enjoying the hospitality of Watford General Hospital a little more than we expected. First the nice people in the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU, pronounced ‘scooboo’) and then the equally nice folks on the Hornets children’s ward have been entertaining us while they try to figure out why Rosa wasn’t feeding properly and now why she has a temperature.

Right now, Rosa is with her mother in an isolation room, which makes it sound more dramatic than it really is – I think they put tiny babies in these rooms automatically while they figure out what’s wrong. We expect them home tomorrow (Sunday) so normality can’t be far off now…

…Rosa May Bowbrick. Just short of 8 lbs in weight, born at 12.05 pm May 1st at Watford General Hospital under an amazing stormy Spring sky. Juliet and baby are both doing well. I’ve taken about a million pictures – so consider yourself lucky. I’ll put some more up on a page of their own as soon as I get time.
