Welcome Isla!

I got a text at 3 a.m on Saturday from the U.K.

It said, 'Isla Joanna Jessop born today at 2.22. 7lbs 1. Both well and recovering.'

Which is fantastic news.

Except I have absolutely no clue as to who Isla's parents are.

O well it will save on pressie buying.
Theres something special about baby news that just makes you want to share it with the whole world.
This morning I received a happy birthday txt......my birthday was in April.

It's the 2,227 lbs that impresses me. No wonder they wanted to tell everyone.

OF COURSE! Trying to get into the Guiness Book of Records as we speak.

Strong suspicion that Miss Isla is second child of Longest Scottish person of your acquaintance. Get thee to a present shop forthwith!

laughykate said...

FUCK! Fuck! Fuckety- fuck- fuck! At least I welcomed her. Did you get same text ?

Sp8y said...

No. But then I do frequent the wonderful MyFace/FriendBook which tells me lots of things about the world and people I might know.

All those birth texts are the same format.

Name
Sex
Time
Condition

Best I got was from a friend:

"Baby girl. Fancy a pint?"
