Awesome Spirit: welcome to the world.

I was going to give you a whole thing on Andy Murray, and Britishness and Scottishness, and snobbery and glory and shining sporting pinnacles, and all sorts.

  1. Astonishing. She already looks so strong - and so big!

  2. This is lovely. Look how strong her legs are, even if a little wobbly.


Your comments give me great delight, so please do leave one.
