365 Project | 11

The 365 project. A year of Archibald Photography in photographs.

January 11. The first blue sky of 2014. Jack and I drove home from his football training via Jack’s first home; this little cottage in Kilbucho just outside Broughton. In fact, had he not been too stubborn to arrive when the midwives expected, he would have been born in this cottage. That was the plan. We were set, the midwife was set, the oxygen cylinders were in the house, the hot water and towels were at the ready (plan was to heat them at the last minute, in case you are wondering). I guess he was just too comfortable in there. Borders General Hospital instead was where he drew his first breath.

Jack is the one on the right.
