Missing in action again!

I would like to say this is the reason that I have been absent.  However I can make no claim about this sweet cardigan, other that my sister made it for my little girl, and it arrived in the post today.  How cute is that bow?

It reminded me that it was by Skype, a while back now mind you, that I asked my sister if she fancied dusting off her knitting needles – my indirect and cheeky way of how I told her she was going to be an Aunty!  It is funny how people respond to such an announcement.  I can still recall my father-out-of-law being the most excited – it just radiated off him – also by Skype.  The beauty of modern technology.

How did you tell your family about your pregnancy?
