"I'm fat"

Been back home a few days after our Christmas break, been meaning to post, never quite gotten around to it...

Mrs T just came in to see what I was doing, and when I said I was about to update here she said, “Tell 'em I'm fat”. So there you have it, straight for the horse’s mouth, as it were. Mrs T is feeling fat. In fact, people keep telling here she’s “carrying neatly”, whatever that means.

We’ve gone and made our first major purchase for Flicker: a Bugaboo Cameleon in black and orange. It’s way, way too expensive (one of the most expensive things we've ever bought, behind only the house, the car, and the computers) but we just liked everything about it.

Not thought about a cot yet (eBay calling, I suspect) but we did discover over Christmas that the swinging crib Mrs T was in as a baby is still kicking around in a family friend’s loft. Be nice to see it in action again!

Flicker is dancing away like a pro. We’ve had a check-up with the thyroid specialist and he's happy with the way things are going. The only frustrating thing about the hospital is that they've lost another blood sample so Mrs T had to have a third test done, the results of which we still await.

A happy new year to anyone who reads this.

The thing with prams is that you get exactly what you pay for. I am yet to find a genuine bargain and I have had maybe 6 or 7 different trolleys over the years. The Bugaboo looks so nice to drive, easy to fold and light to lift...heaven! Glad you are all doing well - happy new year!

Happy new year!

I agree with Jill about ones just break down. That is my experience...

And, you will have to post a belly shot, and then we will see if Mrs. T. is really fat or not!

A belly shot, Kate? I'm can't begin to imagine how I'd get Mrs T to agree to that! Perhaps I should catch her while she's sleeping. (Which, let's face it, is most of the time at the moment.)
