[Filtered to friends of Kallian and Alistair (feel free to assume)]
Alistair and I have some extremely surprising and extremely happy news. Ordinarily I'd want to tell everyone in person, but you know what a gossip mill this place is, and I don't want any of you finding out somewhere other than from us.
Alistair and I are going to have a baby. Late this summer, Christine thinks. As any of you who have any experience with Wardens know, the odds of this happening are very slim, so we're feeling like we just won a hundred sovereigns on a bluff.
And apparently drinking alcohol is not good for pregnant women, so I am now taking bids on my alcohol rations.
