Welcome beautiful grandchild, born 2nd July 2009 at 1.53 am, 7lb, 11oz.

You are the first of a new generation for this family. A 21st-century child, you have had your own blog since long before you were born. I had news of your birth (sixteen thousand kilometres away) within thirty minutes, your photograph was on twitter within hours and I have downloaded and printed it before the end of the first day. You are the new wallpaper on my computer desktop (replacing your pregnant mother) and I look forward to meeting you and keeping up with your progress on skype.

This ends a totally awesome day, the day I became a Grandparent.


Who am I? I am different things to different people. I am a poet, a visual artist, a sculptor of found objects, and a writer. I am a bookkeeper, an office manager, an administrator and software support consultant, even a short-order cook and barista. I am a parent, a grandparent, a sibling, a cousin and a friend. I am a traveller, a technophile, a philosopher and a student of all things.
