Was just going to go to bed when I got a call from my brother in Epsom.His wife has gone into labour, and can I come down to look after their little girl. So - I'll have a quick shower and change and then set off to drive down. Should take two or three hours. I am not feeling too tired so it will be fine. If they have to go to hospital before I can get there, they will take the girl to a neighbour, but I am hoping that doesn't happen because she is only little and it would be a shame to have to wake her. I feel pleased there's something useful I can do.
ETA - Baby has just been born, he will be called Stanley. All are well. I have had a nice evening with my niece.
