Stense became an auntie today. Her niece, Sian Rachel Something (she did tell me the third name, but I forget) was born in the early hours of this morning. Congratulations to Stense's sister (The Doc) and her brother-in-law, Rob.
By a strange co-incidence, today (5th April) is the date that Stense has consistently yet mistakenly believed to be my birthday. She finally got it right this year, even though my presents didn't arrive until this afternoon. There was a definite Seventies ring to them. Stense was evidently getting her own back for all the hippy jibes.
Auntie Stense, eh? That's going to take some getting used to.
