I break off from my planned transmisison of bread baking posts to announce....the arrival of a mini Munchkinette!! Kiwi Sis popped into the hospital for a mere four-hour labour (note how only someone who has never given birth uses the word 'mere' anywhere near the word 'labour')!, and has been on the phone to Munchkin Gramps herself already, sounding very cheery. It's all quite surreal, and I can't quite believe that my little sister has a daughter. I'm off to buy something suitable to toast the new arrival, although of course it isn't really her birthday here yet as she was born in the early morning in NZ. Does that mean we can spend all of tomorrow toasting to her as well? Many many congrats Kiwi Sis, Bro and Munchkin!
For obvious reasons no photo of mum and baby themselves, but here are some pictures of the present which is awaiting Munchkinette's return from hospital.
