Screen test, tear and cricket practice.

I've got something lovely to share with you (I've an idea that some of you have already guessed what it might be). I'm letting Nick deliver the news, because he is very excited about it. -- Clare

1) Without fanfare and no opening credits, our unborn baby appears on the screen in front of us, its arm waving as if it knows we're watching it.

2) Clare sheds a tear of happiness but the sonographer, who's seen it all before, has the box of tissues in her hand already.

3) Finally the sun makes its appearance, brightening an evening walk around the cricket ground. A proud dad takes a photo of his two little boys: "You look really cool in your whites." Our future?
