Twenty years ago today.
I was sitting in a maternity ward biting my fingernails to the quick. Tracy was in labour and I didn't feel old enough to pace up and down with the rest of the prospective dads. At about half ten that night the taxdodger arrived, I was relieved because Tracy had been squeezing the life out of my left hand, it was all withered and pale. After I had phoned everyone I got a taxi home, it's all a bit of a haze, but one thing I do remember is going back to the hospital the next day and the radio played (in the middle of summer) "when a child is born".
Happy birthday Si, have a good one !
