Why shouldn't I tell?

Finally, two of our kittens (now going by the names of "Lucy & Yoyo") have gone home to a family with 2 little boys. So, from being harrased by a 2-year-old, they now go on to being harrased by a 3 & 5-year-old. That must be slightly more bearable for them. The one kitten that has lost out here is the white one with ginger spots, called Molly. She will be staying with us and most probably will continue to be chased around by Lucas. At least until she's big enough to no longer be of interest to him (which definatelly will happen as he shows no interest in our adult cat)

What else is new? I'm pregnant. I'm not meant to share that with anyone yet, as it's only been a few weeks. And you're meant to talk about being pregnant until you've gone through your first 3 months safely. Still, a blog is all about being honest, isn't it? And if things go wrong, I'll just write about it. I don't feel that I have anything to hide. Of course, we all hope that it goes well. It would be so lovely. And Lucas could really do with a brother or sister. Still, I had an ectopic pregnancy last summer, which ended in an emergency operation, so I know what it means for things to wrong too. Let's just hope that nothing like that will happen this time around.

By the way, Andy & his parents have taken Lucas along on a cave tubing trip this morning. Aparently he loved it! He even walked a mile and a half on the way to the cave. He's now lounging on the sofa watching a DVD that his nan bought for him. I hope he'll nod off. Andy and his parents are all having an afternoon nap. But our little dynamo is still going....

Oh, more cool news: my mum and her boyfriend Hans are finally moving in together (after having been in a relationship for 2 years). I think it's a great idea. They've been faffing around long enough now. Congratulations, you two!

Tomorrow we're off to Guatemala. We'll be spending 2 nights in Flores and visit the temples at Tikal. It will be interesting to see how the in-laws like Guatemala. And I wonder if we'll manage to find any food plain enough for Andy's dad (he only really likes potatoes and other "English types of food") Should be interesting.

Talk to you all in a few days.
