This time 14 years ago I was in a hospital in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and a very small Boy One was in a cot next to me.
I was a bit dazed, my beautifully structured birth plan and seemingly unshakable faith in my body’s ability to do the right thing had vanished. But I was in love – I had the most beautiful baby in the world.
Now I have a gentle young man who’s taller than me and loves going to Yo Sushi!
Happy birthday, Boy One.
