Well, it had to happen one day - only Claire and I thought we'd be somewhat older and Karl would have finished his university course. Karl telephoned earlier this week to let us know we're to become grandparents! As Karl is only 21 and has just started university I felt like reading the riot act - but what's the point! It's support he and his girlfriend need and they do love each other!
Claire and I aren't really surprised because we knew that they were living together before travelling down to Brighton, where they share a room in a house with three friends and where the university is situated.
Karl fully intends to complete his university course, which we're extremely pleased about.
Thought I'd share the news with people we care about - you lot!
