Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition!

This little vegemite also wasn’t expecting to be given a referral to the obstetrics outpatients clinic this morning.

(If I was expecting it I at least would have covered that type of thing on my bloody expensive – and useless – private health care, under which I deliberately cut out services related to my current “condition” as a covered item because I’ll never need that!)

Unexpected does not necessarily mean unwelcome – just very, very unplanned!

Now excuse me while I go and stare, shocked look on my face, out the window for a good while longer.

      we’re still at holy crap stage here, but thanks…. at 38 this was not quite the plan. We were just about to book a bloody European holiday, doh!

  2. Amanda Says:

    Congratulations! Great news!
    Very happy for you both.

    Did I read this correctly? OK, I just saw the tag at the end of the post. I wish I could reach you from here to give you a great big hug!! Such fabulous news. Congratulations!!! There are not enough exclamation points to convey how happy I am for you.

      Jen, you read correctly. (I blame you actually – You told me you’d pray for me to give me a bit of a hand in the giving up smoking thing. This wasn’t quite the method I had in mind! In fact I had successfully managed to stop well before I worked this out. Good timing, I guess.) πŸ™‚

    It just all fell into place, didn’t it? Stopped smoking.. took up knitting again… You are more than welcome to blame me. I’ve always thought you would make a wonderful mother.

    WTF!!!!! Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!!!!!! I had to read this 3 times before it finally sunk in. Well, lots of window gazing I think. And here I was dropping by to ask if there was any admin jobs up for grabs in your office….slightly trivial now (but I still said it in just in case).

    Sorry, all I can think of to say is Oh my god.

    I am surprised, happy and shocked for you all at the same time. And, if I’m honest, a little envious too.

      That’s been said a bit around these here parts too. I forget sometimes that the odd ‘real life’ people I know read here so Eve, this is still rather on the down low… Not aware of any admin type stuff around here but will keep an eye out. Cheers

      • eve Says:

        Thanks for any help regarding admin work I really appreciate it.

        As for keeping things on the down low, relax. I see none of ‘those people’ any more so you need not stress. I can relate to your anxiety and have had family call and question me for some remark or other on facebook/blog..pfffft. My blog was once my sanctuary. Now, for various reasons it has become soooooooo edited as to no longer be enjoyable….if you know what I mean.

        I have purchased an apartment near Glebe so I would love for you to visit sometime and check it out! I have a pool (2 in fact!!) so you are more than welcome anytime to come by for a swim and some lunch…very civilised. I like the way you called me an odd real life person…I laughed.

        Please take care

    How exciting! Congratulations! My last baby was a surprise and it was a wonderful unexpected thing.

    • 12ontheinside Says:

      Thanks Tori – I told my mum about this today and she said “Oh, that’s just how your brother came about!” Exciting times for sure! πŸ™‚

    NO more drinking little mother!

    • 12ontheinside Says:

      Tell me about it. It won’t be long before the whole bloody local pub works this one out – one can only use excuses for having just a ginger ale for so long… Currently the story is that I am on a diet, and am looking forward to wearing a bikini next summer holidays. Ha – by then I could think of nothing less likely.

  8. Sashimi Says:

    Congratulations!! Always gr8 to hear of a baby coming… (Did I just say that..being from the 2nd most populous nation in the world!)

  9. Little Miss Moi Says:


    Yeah… I totally get you with the unplanned and what the eff thing… I wasn’t about to book a euro holiday though, I living in shitsville, europe! Anyway, what the finally wore off and at eight months it did eventually dawn on us that we were having a kid. Hopefully you’ll get there soon too.

    Congrats again! Woo hoo party time πŸ™‚
