DS’s birthday today, always a strange day for me – as for most mums I guess, such an amazing thing to give birth. Certainly some very clear memories still there from 11 years ago.
Though last night was much more pleasant and pain free, no contractions every 3 minutes during the hour long trip to hospital in Melrose.  (I still wince every time I drive down the little windy road!)
