Congratulations :-)

We didn't know because he didn't post it here. I was of the impression he'd have posted here himself if he'd wanted us to know ...

I don't think u want to get into a debate of the internet and technology the fact is we have nowadays nothing is non publishable anymore there are no secrets Wikipedia is still an illegal organisation etc. Glen is quite happy for this to be published although I'm not sure he be up for next random 15 though.

Oh wow! It's amazing what you find when you search the depths of the forum! Yes I did become a father in 2017. Thanks for all the well wishes. Are there any other tube babies out there I don't know about?

I think I still am.

I do like that she calls her toy racecar a "train". I wonder who's the youngest person to do full network...?

I think they were about 9 or 10, could have been Bob Robinson's son- you should give it a try with your daughter!

Exactly I think from 10 is a sensible age to do a full network. So look out, Children in need 2027 "Team Raven" is giving it a go!
