Welcome to the website of the Bagnalls – a little window on our World.  The website begun as a simple blog but is gradually becoming a little more complex, although I am attempting to keep it more on the simple side and focused on family life you may have to forgive me if I occasionally go astray.

The website was originally envisioned to be a record of the progress of our first child: Éowyn Vera Bagnall. She was born at 04:01 (BST) on the 17th October 2008 at St. Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey weighing 7lbs 9oz.  You will notice that the majority of the early entries of this website are dedicated entirely as a blog to Éowyn’s progress, however, as both of us are from a trio of siblings she was never going to be an only child.

Child number two, Amélie Iris Bagnall arrived at 14:14 (BST) on the 28th September 2010 also at St. Peter’s hospital, Chertsey but weighing in slightly heavier than her sister at 8lbs 5oz.  That gave me double the reason to update this blog and double the reason for you to keep popping by.

The trio became complete at 05:25 (GMT) on the 13th March 2013.  Ezra John Bagnall was also born at St. Peter’s hospital in Chertsey weighing in slightly heavier again at 8lbs 13oz.  Since both Lucinda and I were from families of five, it now feels like our family is complete and it is the cherry on the icing on the cake that we have a son to compliment our two daughters.  It will also mean that I have triple the reason to update this blog and triple the reason for you to keep popping by, however it has increased the difficulty I have in striking the correct balance between all of my children (in the updates); but isn’t that just an aspect of the perennial problem facing all parents?

It is not just children that will feature on these pages as the family has now increased with the additional of pets.  It goes without saying that I will also add to the blog as other family news breaks, but also please feel free to click the links on the right for more detailed information and plenty of photos on our flickr pages.

There are also a number of other static pages of our journey to this point.  These are under the Major Events heading on the right.  They include brief descriptions of the trip on which I proposed, our Wedding Day and our Honeyweek and Honeymoon respectively replete with the customary photographs.  In addition, each child has their own page and do each of the pets.  They can’t be left out, can they?

In the meantime, please feel free to search our galleries on our flickr site or the blog stories on this website via the search facility in the right hand column.  There are also links to various websites that you may find interesting.

Peace and love
