A smallholder is born

Melinka Judith Hartley was born at Penybanc on 15 July 2012 weighing 7lbs 3oz (3.25 kg). We were really glad we managed to have a home birth and that (despite her being a week early) we managed to finish the bedroom in time so that at least one room is no longer a building site. Melinka is now one month old and doing really well – she will be weeding the garden and chopping logs in no time!
