OK, I was a bit mean.
You have probably all been wondering what the last Cairo Update
was about. It had a subject heading "Here we go again",
no writing, just an attatched picture.
We've had confused Emails back. I'd better explain.
The attatched picture is of a pregnancy test.
The pregancy test is positive.
Alison is pregnant.
The baby is due in September
I know what you are all thinking- Yes, it was planned. Definitely
the last *planned* pregnancy!
