Another chap born at the end of High Mass today, in glorious sunshine. I waited around in case a twin was still to pop out but the mother happily munched away without any sign of impending delivery, so this lad is a solo act. That makes 5 in 24 hours – the nursery paddock is abuzz with doting mothers and inquisitive lambs. But 6 boys and 1 girl makes for an annoying gender imbalance.
Cephas! (If you know your gospels, and you know this week’s events, you know why.)
Meanwhile Sonny and Cher spent their second day, with Mum, sunbathing.
Joseph and Benedict likewise took some sun, and seemed destined to stick together like limpet mines.
Meanwhile the two eldest boys do not know what all the fuss is about.
