Our lovely broad bean, Reuben

On Friday the 13th of OShell and i had our first baby, our lovely broad bean, Reuben.

So far it's been a wonderful experience and i can wholeheartedly reccomend it to anyone who feels even the slightest bit interested in having children. Once I layed eyes on that little face, most eveything else seemed strangely unimportant.

Just to be part of something that is really so much bigger than ourselves, helps me to realise that while we're all busily going on with whatever it is we're doing; beneath it all, this precious life just goes on and on, just like it always has.

Reuben has reminded me of my own mortality and that of all of us.
