And I thought MoneySaving was tiring! I’m on paternity leave at the moment as last Thursday our beautiful first child (MSE Junior) was born. Her name is Sapphire Susan Lewis and while she weighs a wee 6lb 6oz, her weight in joy is immeasurable.
Last night was her first one at home and it was quite exhausting (I think she’s operating in a US time zone for some reason), though worth every second.
Mrs MSE and I would like to thank everyone who has sent their best wishes. We’re overwhelmed and feel very fortunate at the volume of messages, though I’m sure you’ll forgive us not responding individually, as at the moment we’re going to spend our time concentrating on feeding, cuddling and nappies.
Many of you have asked to see a picture. I hope you’ll understand that we’ve decided not to put any pictures of her in the public space. Though for a description, I can say without any fear of contradiction, she is quite the most beautiful baby I have ever seen.
PS. The site is currently in the capable hands of the MSE team. I will be back at work on Thursday as I need to do some work on next Tuesday’s Martin Lewis Money Show, though I hope to take a little more paternity leave later.
If you do see the odd MoneySaving blog meanwhile â€“ it’s probably written while sitting mooning over my sleeping little girl.
