We've been in regular contact, as it's been a worrying time for them and he's texted a few photos of new little baby SQUEEEEEE.

Now, I haven't shown anyone at work these photos, because I think it is his baby, his business to show photos when he gets back.

I have been called 'secretive', 'precious' and 'UNREASONABLE' for not doing (and have only admitted to having photos when directly asked.
