On the day she was predicted to arrive, we had a launch-lunch for Lea (that’s Lee-ah) Alexa Cressey, Dan and Emily’s new small person. She’s already two-and-a-half weeks old, and Gwyneth, Rachel and Ricky, and Marion came view her and to eat lunch and her celebration cake. It’s a snake because she’s very wriggly. It was a thoroughly good occasion, and everyone behaved impeccably. Shame I left out a letter on the cake… but there should always be a deliberate mistake for the devils to escape.
