They thought they were babies.
But they were not babies.
They were cats.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone for their well wishes, virtual support (and of course the really generous present from Bygge Bo). My little “gift from the sun” Savitri (above), named for her Grandma, has already brought out the bright light in people, especially her dad and I. Thank you.

Navan-based Irish baby concept store Bygge Bo have launched an ONLINE personal shopping service.
Sophia Heather writes:
The new service was created to provide an informative, live, personal shopping experience to new parents that will help them simplify and streamline their baby shopping.
The service is free of charge and there is no minimum spend required for parents. Bygge Bo wanted to create a comfortable and supportive environment for expecting parents to make their baby shopping easier, and satisfy needs such as creating a baby gift registry.
The personal shopping service will enable parents-to-be to learn about and purchase suitable products for their baby from the comfort of their own home, on a dedicated personal shopping video appointment. Bygge Bo staff will provide detailed product demonstrations across products such as pushchairs, travel systems, car seats and furniture.
For first-time parents, the personal shopping service will be tailored to their needs.
Bygge Bo have kindly granted mother and Broadsheet
reader legend Janet a new baby gift set (above) for her daughter, who was born last week.
