I'm pacing the floor with no hope of being able to do anything useful. My daughter is 2 days overdue for the birth of her baby. I'm about as far away from her as you can be without leaving the planet. Everything seems to be OK with her, but I'm so far away!
Oh, dear! You do realise it could be up to 2 weeks overdue before they might consider doing anything, don't you?
*watches the rut in the floor getting deeper*
At this rate you will have dug your way home before she has it
Put your feet up and crack open a couple of tinnies, mate. I was 2 weeks late!
I know that babies don't wear watches or anything. We had our own experience of late deliveries, but that doesn't help not knowing stuff except through social media...
Three days overdue now.
*notices the rut is now a ditch*
Do you need a ladder, yet?
It'll all be fine soon.
No ladder needed yet. I can still see over the edge if I stand on tiptoe.
I've just ordered an extendable one, just in case
while you're waiting?
Woo-hoo Cerys is here!
6lb 6oz baby girl born 11.38 GMT which is 8.38 pm in Australia.
Everyone is fine.
Climbs out of trench and climbs ladder up to Cloud 9!
Welcome to the world, Cerys
Thanks Lil. all round!
I have spoken to my daughter on a mobile phone while she is still in the hospital and she sounded great! I've seen pics of Cerys on Facebook so I don't feel I am too far out of the loop at the moment.
What a very magic moment for you all
Now, are you coming down off that ladder before you fall off!
Many congratulations! Will you be knitting the little blighter its first vest?
*Takes two rungs off ladder to make a hefty pair of knitting needles.*
(tongue protrudes from side of mouth in great concentration)
Now let me remember. Left over right, purl one, knit two, Arsenal three, I'm running out of wool...
*sends in a flock of sheep*
Wonderful news, especially that they're all fine.
Oh, wonderful! Congrats to you, to Vestdaughter and to the little Vestbaby!
Wow, so I logged in tonight for no obvious reason, and my first two threads have been an engagement and a birth! Congratulations!
