Listening to: an old Sorry I Haven't A Clue on Radio 7
Drinking: Plymouth gin

The 'moderate drinking' resolution (an absolute necessity on January 1 after a long session at Cleaton House) has been broken already - and, as usual, it's all Mrs Pig "Farmer's" family's fault.

We had a call this afternoon from Sal's brother Martin - another brother Alan is here on holiday. Martin and Kathy's daughter Corinne today produced a 7lb 12oz boy with a shock of red hair.

Young Henry's head is being wetted while I type and I'm absolutely chuffed to bits for Mart, Kathy, Corinne and her partner Nick. It could hardly happen to nicer people.

Of course, this makes my father-in-law Ray a great grandad and Mrs Pig "Farmer" a great auntie.

The pig "farmer" is also a great uncle - but you knew that already.

Hooray, Henry!

Drinking Beaujolais. Wishing I'd listened to an old I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue as it hasn't been the same since Willie Rushton died and I'm not sure that Humphrey Lyttleton isn't irreplaceable.

congratulations to all concerned!

Plymouth is a good gin for a G&T, ever tried Hendricks?

I'm on the Winter Pimms here (it's nippy out, but probably nothing compared to your weather!)

Awww, resolutions are made to be broken anyway. And what a good reason to tip a few. Congrats.
