Jesus spent 40 days and nights in the desert.
I've got 41 days and I think 40 nights before our baby is actually due.
Talking to all and sundry about whether it'll be early, on time or late. It's anyone's guess.
The mid-wife says the baby is in "firing position", so I take that to mean from next weekend on (or possibly the weekend after), we wait in a state of perpetual cat-like readiness - bags packed, no long trips to anywhere, a full tank of petrol in the car, keys at the ready and a full-charged battery in the video camera.
Oh, and access to update the blog (most important, this last one). Here's to the next 40 days before our life changes for ever!!!
