As there are precious few of us around (under 100 in the last UK census) it's always a pleasure to hear of the birth of any new Yelfs. Doubly so if they happen to be my nephew!
So welcome then Albert Yelf, delivered quickly and safely at 3pm this morning and weighing in at a healthy 7 1/2lb. Mother and baby doing fine and my brother as pleased as punch. At this rate, and with a bit of luck, we may still have Yelfs into the next century. And, following in the great Yelf tradition, one of his middle names is Amor!
