Wonderful news today - the birth of Alice Wright
Alice Amy Katherine Wright was born at 9:31am today (8/4/08) in York hospital, weighing 8lb 1oz, (3.67 kg)
Isn't she simply gorgeous?
Alice's mummy and daddy are my very good friends Susan and Tom.
We all worked together for the Labour Party in the run-up to the 1997 General Election. Susan and I worked very closely together on regional budgets and Tom was the brains behind Elpack stats. We all got on famously and I was thrilled to see them married in a posh hotel in the New Forest in 1998.
They moved from Battersea to York a few years ago, which was great for me as it brought them closer. Then my god-son Dylan was born (actually we didn't use religious references, I am his "special person", I am not sure what phrase I should use for him, other than "gorgeous little lad").
Anyway, they have now been safely delivered of a lovely baby girl, Alice, sister to Dylan, and both mother and baby are doing fine.
What wonderful news, well done, I look forward to seeing the four of you as soon as the frantic schedule allows
Lots of love
