I Can Now Reveal...!

A couple of weeks ago, I told you all that I've been keeping the biggest secret ever. Of course, I understand the reasons why I've had to keep schtum, but maintaining my silence has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. In fact, I'll go one step further and say it's been torture. I'm such a scream and shout it from the rooftops kind of person!

Anyway, having been given the go-ahead to reveal all (drum roll, please) I'd like you to raise a glass for my son, Benjamin, and his beautiful wife, Cindy...

Yes, everyone, (getting tearful as I type this) they're going to have a baby!

I know, I know, I'm way too young to be a grandmother (and too glamorous, I hear you say - obviously) but I soooooo can't wait. This baby is an absolute gift. And to us, at least, already the most adored little being on the planet.

I wonder if we'll have a little boy to add to our fine male Tullett specimens?

Or a little girl to make the numbers up?

Not that it matters, either way, as long as the baby's healthy.

Although the happy parents-to-be do plan on finding out the sex and I, for one, can't wait... Knitting needles at the ready.

So there you have it. That's what I've been forced to keep to myself these last few weeks.

Anyone of you got any happy news you'd like to share? x

First Paragraph, Teaser Tuesday!

Every week, the lovely Paulita Kincer (Author of The Summer of France) takes part in a weekly bookish meme. The point being to introduce the first sentence of her current read, along with a random teaser, to all the other Tuesday Teaser participants.

A great way to share books and grabs a readers interest, don't you think?

Anyone can play along, so if you want to join in please head over to Paulita's blog where you can find all the details.

And guess what, Guys, this week she's featuring Going Underground!

Will my first sentence grab you? x
