Readers, friends – I have been absent recently and I’ve missed you all a great deal. I’ve tried to drop by on you all from time to time so you don’t think I’ve disappeared completely. I hope you have been enjoying the guest posts done by my wonderfully kind blogging friends while I’ve been away, but I do apologise. I’ve missed a lot of your wonderful posts.
This blog and the wonderful blogging community has been my hobby for almost two years now and believe me, being away is a very strange feeling, but I hope that when you read the reason why you will understand my absence.
I’d like to announce to you all today the happiest news of my life – news which we found out a day before our trip to Sweden back in December 2011. So what is this, you may be wondering? Well… 1 month ago yesterday I became a father to a beautiful, big, bouncing baby boy!
I’d like to introduce you to my son, William Smith, born 19th August, 2012 at 3pm French time, measuring 51cm and weighing in at a hefty 4.35kg. Words can’t begin to describe the joy, the happiness and the love I feel and I still sometimes can’t quite believe that “I’m a dad”.
Mother and baby (and father) are all doing well, and while I can’t promise that I’ll be back to “regular programming” on FiveEuroFood in the next week, or even the next two, things will eventually calm down and I can start to work my hobby in around my new family. I’ll be back in five days with another guest post and then I’ll be posting a few of the things I’ve been up to in the kitchen here during my paternity leave. I can’t wait to share more photos and stories with you all!
Have a wonderful day everyone – I know I will! 🙂
