Un named at present
The Grandaughter is rather taken with 'Sebastian'
My preference for something masculine with a Scots influence - Bruce, Ian, Douglas or Jim appears to be getting short shrift - just so long as we dont get Tyler, Skye, Ocean or the like....

I am touched by your good wishes - thank you. I see us as friends who have not yet met - apart from those of us who have met of course, if you get my drift?

I am also touched by the influence of the rather fine bottle of Shampoo which the Saltyjohn's and I put away last evening - it made for an interesting bike ride home.

If space is at a premium, using a small baby bath is just as effective and not so dangerous.
