  1. Congrats! Not just a supporter but a hereditary heir to the throne!

  2. Thanks. She is alredy a libertarian in that she wants to be left alone. She kicks like mad if I try to change her. All she needs now to learn is the virtue of leaving others alone….

  3. Congratulations!

  4. Congratulations Sean, all the best mate.

  5. Congratulations, Sean and Andrea. A possible homage to Mozart there, with ‘ Constanze’ ?

  6. Rhymes & Reasons, by John Denver

    “So you speak to me of sadness
    And the coming of the winter
    Fear that is within you now
    It seems to never end
    And the dreams that have escaped you
    And the hope that you’ve forgotten
    You tell me that you need me now
    You want to be my friend

    And you wonder where we’re going
    Where’s the rhyme and where’s the reason
    And it is you cannot accept
    It is here we must begin
    To seek the wisdom of the children
    And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

    For the children and the flowers
    Are my sisters and my brothers
    Their laughter and their loveliness
    Could clear a cloudy day

    Like the music of the mountains
    And the colours of the rainbow
    Theyre a promise of the future
    And a blessing for today

    Though the cities start to crumble
    And the towers fall around us
    The sun is slowly fading
    And it’s colder than the sea

    It is written: from the desert
    To the mountains they shall lead us
    By the hand and by the heart
    They will comfort you and me
    In their innocence and trusting
    They will teach us to be free

    For the children and the flowers
    Are my sisters and my brothers
    Their laughter and their loveliness
    Could clear a cloudy day

    And the song that I am singing
    Is a prayer to non believers
    Come and stand beside us
    We can find a better way.”

  7. A definite homage to Mozart – the greatest man who ever lived, in our view. Within 45 minutes of her birth, Philippa was listening to the “Et Incarnatus Est” from the Mass in C K447. I videoed her reaction. It was encouraging.

  8. Ah wonderful. A beautiful choice too, Sean :)

  9. Hearty congratulations.

    I trust the £120 pregnancy payment from the government was spent on fruit and veg, as mandated…

  10. I thought the pregnancy bribe was only coming in after 2009. If not, I really must claim. £120 would buy 20 packs of B&H
