Sharon (aka @happymouffetard, or my wife Mrs Hopkinson) is pregnant! Working title for the new member of the family is Beetle. Below you can see images from the dating scans, the due date is 21st February. In real life Beetle had a bit of a thrash around and demonstrated various bits of anatomy. 




Technically @happymouffetard is described as “Geriatric Primigravida”
