The Sister in Law in Canada is having baby no. 3 today, sometime after lunch I think (caesarians do take a lot of the element of surprise out of things ;p).
So, as usual, have the pre-baby jitters and can't concentrate on anything! Probably made worse by the fact that I can't just pop up to the hospital and see them later as before. Obviously it's much worse for Emma who's way over there with no family; they have friends helping out tho, so thats good.

Must get on to sorting out flights there later in the summer.

Anyway. Need distractions people! Make it so!

ETA 2pm. Still no news. Have done Irish times xword & half of cryptic (gave up because it was taunting me with clues like "What is so round is so twitchy" and "In the family way? That'd be telling.") and 2 and half sudukos. Now have to look like I'm working again.

ETA 2 BABYBABYBABYBABYBABY YAY Baby boy, Rafe Anthony (poor child. Still, i'm sure he'll grow into it...) 8lb 14oz - and that at 2 weeks early.
All doing well - except the brother who is, as ever, totally useless and mostly trying not to faint. Wuss.
HURRAH!

Bored?? I am not BORED i am nervously staring at the phone waiting for it to ring and am very very TWITCHY.

Also, I suck at icon making. [livejournal.com profile] the_cortex had links every day to firefly icons... not sure where you'd get lost ones, [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda usually has some on offer!

ps that icon still makes me think it's MIKE POSTING

I made you an icon beef! I am posting with it NOW. I had to guess which Firefly guy you liked. I was going to do the woman with big teeth, but I decided to settle for the CAPTAIN

PS Poor baby Rafe but glad he & mum are good!

From: [identity profile] hellison.livejournal.com
oooh. Can I have that one too?? It is GRATE!

heh yes. poor baby rafe. But at least he has the 'anthony ' to fall back on when he's older ;p
