Ok l swear this is the last one.... final sister had her baby today but l didnt get my hat trick of girls - she had a bouncing baby boy!!! I bloody bet her a £10 that it would be a girl too - now lm out 10 quid and a pressy too!!!!

Thank God you've run out of sisters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats (Again) Aunty Purdy!!!

I hope this experience has taught you something...

1) Keep your legs crossed at all times.
2) Don't wear patent leather shoes. (It's a known fact that patent leather shoes cause pregnancy. Ask any good Catholic girl.)
3) Your sisters will be too busy to babysit for you.
4) There go the hols for the next 18 years.

Congrats again and hope all are very happy in the Robb family!!!! ;)

Hooray--more babies! You'd best move out of the country for awhile. Say, until 2020.

And wear lots of plastic. You're going to need it!

Congrats again!

Thanks for all the congrats - really i did nothing you know!!!!

The words of salient advice have been well and truely noted and l will definately ensure whiskey is at hand, if not for them at least l can drink it and drown them out (lve got 1 babysitting appointment booked already in May!!), everything including me will be coated in plastic and l have made sure that any shoes that even looked patent have been removed from my wardrobe!! But this legs crossed at all times thing G - its a bit awkward trying to get up and downstairs!!!

Coool, more babies.

Speaking of which, my wife is strongly pushing us to go for number 3. I'm dead against it (we have two already, one of each, I'm no spring chicken at 41, why go through all the crap, etc, etc) but she's pretty adamnant so it's an issue we have to work through.

After number 2, she said I should get the snip so she doesn't have to go on the pill. I told her not to treat me as though I'm an old bull put out to pasture. In hindsight, I should have jumped at the chance.

Now that made me out and out laugh!!!!! Ah, men and their vas deferens are rarely parted without a fight... Let us know when we can expect #3, James, because you know "old bulls" rarely win.

It was yesterday (again). A friend's 3 year old son had a baseball-sized tumor removed from his chest wall recently. The latest report is excellent and no chemotherapy (at least not at this time) is scheduled. He's also keeps announcing that his scar is sexy.

I'll be confirming with the hotel this morning - just to be on the safe side...

Booked the trip for November. Woo hoo!

Plus, in my total ineptitude with math, I accidentally gave myself an extra day off. So I called back and booked another night at the hotel we arrive at. Two days of relaxing before we head off around South Africa. Yay!!
