Can anyone recommend any antenatal classes in the area?

Yes. Congratulations. (Sorry to be so slow on the uptake. I should have realised that there's only one reason why a body would give up drinking cider).

{And I'm sure you'll be ahead of me and have realised that if you make some cider this Autumn, it will be ready for head-wetting purposes in the New Year}

...if you press it, they will come.

Congratulations Ma'am, and I'd like to reassure everyone that although I may be cutting down on my cider intake, I'm not pregnant.

Thanks - but they're not for me; they're for my sis!

Oops...relief. Was a bit unsettled, as one can imagine, that the fiancee seemed to have lost her virginity without consultation.

You were unsettled??? As the adopted daughter in this family I was a tad worried that I'd no longer be the baby! ;-)

I'm just relieved that us uncles and aunties don't have to start knitting bootees and matinee coats.

(Maurits: It's a (probably long-dead) tradition that relatives knit something for new babies. I'm sure you'll guess that bootees are little knitted shoe-type things for babies. I can only guess that matinee coats are what well dressed Edwardian babies used to wear for attending afternoon performances at the theatre, but I am sure that if I've heard my granny say that she was knitting one for someone's new baby so I claim it as a bona fide knitting-for-babies term.)
