I’ve just found a Satellite photo of the UK taken on the afternoon that Saragh and I rushed to hospital to welcome are daughter Poppy into the world. Looking out of the window on the 7th January 2010, as Saragh went into labour, I had a feeling it was going to be a very special day. The last time that there was Snow covering the whole country, we didn’t have satellites like TERRA and AQUA armed with the MODIS camera system to take such amazing photos. I’ll keep this pic for prosterity. Somewhere down there, just on the outskirts of SW London, as TERRA glided silently overhead, an expectant father leaned out of his bedroom window and wondered if the car was going to start all right.
