    I love the idea of this.... I know the office staff here are a sucker for a Krispy Kreme so I am planning of picking up a big box, putting the scan photo inside just like this.

    It has been a week today since the combined tests were done and so far not heard anything, so I guess no news is good news. We are going to tell family over the weekend and I think I will tell work after the bank holiday.

    How did you announce to your work friends? :) xx

    I love this idea but I have only just started a new job after mat leave with my first child. I don't know the team too well so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do! X

    I had just returned to work after my first mat leave in January after Christmas....everyone can round the work station first thing to welcome me back and ask If I had a nice Xmas....I said look what I got for Xmas and showed them the scan photo. They were all so shocked since I was just back from mat leave!xx

    Yeah plus my cover partner was pissed and didn't care that I'd be going off haha!

    She's been covering that desk for a year then I got moved there and now I'll be going off again so we needed an alcohol included announcement haha.

    Doughnuts sound amazing tho. I love doughnuts ESP fresh sugar ring ones like made at the carnival.

    Lovely ideas.
    I was at a meeting as pur team got reformed so they wanted to do 2 truths and a lie for everyone for us to guess. I slipped my pregnancy in which totally confused them especially as I was 19 weeks at the time. Managed to keep it secret all that time!! Xx
