Hello. I have returned from a sojourn in Dundee where I celebrated the New Year with the husband's parents. I had an enjoyable time.
We spent five days with plenty of food and no computers to distract me. I appreciate you may wonder how I managed to write the last post, well I confess I scheduled it so many apologies for not responding to your comments sooner.
The in-laws still don't know about the problems we have been having trying to conceive. We intended to tell them but my in-laws a very discreet people, who do not interfere (I didn't score anything on Barren Bingo). We were concerned that if we brought up the subject it would sound like a big announcement when really we don't have a lot to say. We don't even know exactly when the interuterine insemination will take place and it might be more stressfull that helpful.
However, despite their tact they was one present that hinted at their underlying desire for a grandchild.
May I introduce you to Archie.
I am not the sort of woman who has a collection of soft toys, no critisim of anyone who does, but it just isn't me as anyone who knows me would appreciate. However I do think this would be a lovely present for our first born, it is entirely feasible that was what was going through their minds too.
I've got a plethora of New Year's resolutions, which I will share with you at a later date.
*The husband has just accused me of racism and requested that I make clear than Dundonians are not all blithering idiots, and the use of the phrase tapity-tap-taps to refer to computers is completely of my own making.
