    How you found out: I just completed praying with my father when an e-mail from Liz Howdill arrived in my Gmail inbox and my heart started thumping. When I opened the attachment, with my father beside me, I took a deep breath while tears trickled from my father's eyes.

    [Insert gushy, smiley-riddled response here]: I'm ill and also today I thought I had moobs but I think I'm alright for the time being. 20th of december has been a mixed bag.

    EDIT: Forgot to say I am incredibly happy and the moobs thing was kind of a joke and I swear to god all my future posts will be completely sarcasm free.

    How you found out: Wife rang me (mature student, not child groom). I had told her that if the letter arrived, not to open it till I got home. Fortunately she ignored me, as usual.
    Reaction: Very happy, but was sitting at my desk at work when she called so outwardly it had to be a subdued "Oh yes? That's fine then. Speak later. Bye then. Bye"

    How you found out: Heard a massive thump (was my Xmas present for my boyfriend getting delivered) and then literally grabbed the rest of the post from his hands and found the Queen's letter. Lots of screaming ensued (frightened the life out of my little sister) and then calling every family member I could think of!
    [Insert gushy, smiley-riddled response here]: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAH! OMG! :woo::woo::woo:
