Yes sir, that's my baby.

Simon;

I'm allowed to tell you now. It has nothing to do with the bookshop, (and everything to do with the bookshop) and will certainly inspire me to sell as many books as possible between now and June. Katie and I are having a baby!! I think that deserved 2 exclamation marks. We had the 12 week scan today (well 13 weeks and 6 days actually) and everything's normal. Perfectly perfectly normal. The baby is due on July 3rd and I have never been happier about anything, ever. Not even Bristol City's awesome form has made me this happy. We saw it kicking Katie's bladder this morning on the scan, and we also saw it's heartbeat and i'm sure it waved to us, but I might have been wrong about the last bit.
Isn't it gorgeous

It looks like it's going to be a good year.

Congratulations - that's wonderful news. And just think, in a few years you'll have a little Saturday person for the shop! Magnus (eight in a few days) is already reading advance copies and coming up with some very astute comments and he tells me that he wants to learn how to just the till as soon as he's tall enough!

Ah, the happiest times are when babies come! I wish I'd read the blog before I spoke to you just now, because I would have squealed down the phone! How lovely. Congratulations to you both!
