This time 8 years ago, I would have headed off to bed, completely unaware of how my life was about to change.

As it was the holidays, Jon had been up till about 2am watching movies, I had gone to bed quite a bit earlier, however, about 3am I woke to the start of my labour. Being a first baby I wasn't sure what to expect, so I ran a bath, but couldn't lie in it, I then paced the hall for a while, until 4, when I woke Jon to tell him we better go to the hospital, fortunately only 5 minutes down the road.

They had to break my waters, as I was ready to deliver, and Cameron arrived at 6.15am. I was very lucky to have such a short labour, although most of it would have been happening while I was asleep, and for baby to be such a happy little chappy (not that it lasted long).

And that is how my life changed so dramatically all those years ago.
