Stop Press

Grandchild number six has now arrived. 7.5 pounds. Mother and child fine. Home birth, two Kiwi sages femmes in attendance (three, if you count Grandma), and labour no more than three hours.
It's a boy. No name yet. I wish they would name him after me, but I can't see them calling him Scrote, can you? I think Simon or Peter would be a good name - after Joseph and Matthew - a sort of apostolic succession.
Photos will be posted asap. Now, if you will excuse me, I need to rest awhile: childbirth always takes it out of me.
