Personal Status Update!

Postby DaveC » Tue Nov 20, 2012 9:24 am

I have some awesome news and some even awesomer news. And some not so good news.

The not so good news first - in August Mrs Dave was made redundant and hasn't been able to find employment since.

The awesome and awesomer news - that same week we found out that we are expecting, Emma is 15 weeks pregnant now and due to give birth on May 13th! :) :dance: I'm going to be a Dad! :lol: :D


...which means a strange thing happened yesterday, she decided to start Discworld... :o ...she read all of Equal Rites yesterday and loved it and is now halfway through Mort (she skipped CoM and LF due to disliking the writing style and having already seen the films).


WHICH IS THE BETTER NEWS!!! :think: :doh: :clap: :dance: :whistle: :D :lol:

Congratulations both of you. :D Will Mrs Dave be joining the forum now she's becoming a fan?

Thanks guys! :) I'll edit that though, wrote it in a rush, Emma is Mrs Dave, we don't even know the sex of the baby yet... (I've always been a bad typist)

Sorry about Emma's job. Great news on the parenthood side and Discworld reading side. You do realised that you will have to fight over who gets to read the news books first!
