As usual Grandma Jane had some supper ready for us and was all ears at our foreign adventure stories. When Erin said she wanted to show her some photos she didn't really know what to do with some black and white and not very clear seeming polaroids. She looked at them, then again, then turned them upside down, looked at them again the right way up and with a little help from Erin's smile realised what they were. She turned round and automatically gave Erin a huge hug as she asked: 'Are you pregnant?' She knew the answer.
Two minutes later Erin's cousin, Cory, turned up with his wife as did one of her aunts. It's fair to say that most of Erin's family, and there's a lot of them, will now know, 24 hours later.
