The real ten-year plan

I must admit I was being a little tricksy with my previous ten-year plan entry. I had a ten year plan already and I was waiting for the right opportunity to mention it. I decided to have a "surprise" birthday party for myself. I planned the party - the guests (all close family) got the surprise. During grace I thanked God for birthdays and then told everyone I had talked K into having another baby. Being one that "Likes the rollercoaster" (Parenthood movie quote) I am delighted at this new adventure we are embarking on.

No cliches please - and if anyone mentions Doris Lessing Horror Fiction to K they're a dead man!

No cliches please? What does that leave us? Thank you for vindicating my demographic theories and leading us into a glorious Parigi-enriched future!

Don't know what you mean about Doris Lessing, but after a quick visit to Wikipedia I have to find out. Off to the library to get 'Canopus in Argos'.

Yes that's the way to celebrate the expectation of our *Fifth Child*

I saw it on the shelf when I got to 821.91 L639. Literary ignoramus me. So... not a good baby shower present, you reckon?

That's a compliment right :). Thanks for avoiding the cliches.
