Buns in the oven; buns in the oven everywhere...

Pregnant ladies shuffling from table to table. Trouser-busting bellies, looking radiant in their bulging splendour.

Meetings in the maternity centre are always superb; to do so at coffee time, and to allow oneself the luxury of a pun - this is an opportunity not to be missed.

The image that makes the haiga is, chortlesomely, my wife's answer to "buns in the oven", which probably translates into her approach to pregnancy, too: these are Chinese buns in a Chinese (steam) oven.
