    Hi Sofia, nice to hear from you again. I hope that life in Australia is going well (I hope that I have got that right). Am I right in thinking that you are expecting your second child? (i may have that wrong as well). I hope that your family are well and best wishes for 2014. Kindest regards, Janice
