No refund necessary – a baby girl was born.

It’s not a glamorous life for me at the moment, not that I’d change it mind but when I got up and read around some blogs and forums it seems everyone else is refreshed from a holiday/trip or going on one. Al has been away to CES in Vegas along with quite a few other prominent people I dare say, Mr Schwartz is on the high sea’s on a cruise, Mr Gilmour is back from a week surfing and sunning and Mr Schilling has had a deserved extended vacation.

Eve JonesI on the other hand have had the honour of a new arrival, Eve Jones who was born at 4am on Saturday morning, a girl so no refund necessary on the test 😉 Elaine went into labour on her birthday and held out until the 12th, amazingly she came home yesterday the 13th after being in hospital for a day and is now home with Eve – women are certainly made of sterner stuff than men.

I have never been big on holidays preferring to work on and try and create a lifestyle rather than save up and feel a years joy needs to be crammed into a couple of weeks abroad, I think I need to change a bit and get out more and away from work more, it’s far too easy for me to spend too much time at the computer, especially seeing as there are so many opportunities out there – it can be like a drug searching for the next deal.

It’s been a strange start to the year, a positive one though and I plan to do great things over the next 12 months which can build my business, this blog will also change for me, last year I think a lot of the posts were about what I had done in the past and some things that worked and some that didn’t that I felt may help other people, I am pretty up to date now so any posts in the future would be about more current events as and when they happen, as usual I have quite a few things that could come off soon but could just as easy not work out so should get back into the swing of things this week.

  2. Hey Scott, congratulations to you and your wife on your new baby girl.

  3. Wow! Congratulations! 🙂

  4. Scott, congratulations I hope both mum and baby are doing well

  5. Congratulations Scott and Elaine, that was a great surprise to comeback to, well sort of surprise.

  6. Congratulations!

  7. Congratulations now remember the key is to buy her domain name early, you can probably get her blogging pretty soon. Since she won’t be able to read or write she will either have to build an rss scraper or go with pictures.

    • 🙂 Thanks everyone, I wasn’t going to have some sod reg her domain and sell it back to me so managed to reg it at 6 am when I got home on Sat.

  8. Congratulations! AM/SEO/SEM etc. all fit nicely in with being a dad. As 4 of my own, I don’t think we could do all of the trips, visits, meetings etc. if I had a normal 9-5, so your comment about lifestyle rather than holiday rings quite true.

  9. Congrats to you and your wife Scott.

  10. Congratulations with your little newcome 😉

  11. Congratulations! I can sincerely say that you should be much more proud of a new baby, than a vacation to Vegas 🙂

  12. She’s a cute congratulations!!!!

  13. Congratulations!! I assume now your domain choices will be less furniture based and more nappy and baby care based as you’ll be getting plenty of experience with them.

  14. All the best… I’m got three kids. It takes it out of you, but is definitely worth it.

  15. Congratulations Scott.

  16. Congratulations!

  17. Congrats on the new addition.

  18. Congrats on the new arrival Elaine and Scott love the name Eve

  19. Cincirely congratulations Scott and Elaine!

  20. Congratulations! She is a beautiful baby. I was surprised to read that you are no longer offered the opportunity to learn your child’s sex prior to birth in the UK. On the flip-side, that test is certainly impressive!

  21. congrats scott on your new born.

    I know what you mean about holidays. Just feel sorry for all those students studying hard over xmas hols for exams that determine their future :S

    I think you should wait till she is one and go on a big holiday to a beach in the US or some exotic island in the middle of an ocean.

  22. Congrats!!!!!!
