Dropping the baby talk

It’s only just hit me this month quite how much my life has changed after having a baby. Sure, a year ago we’d just got our heads around the sleepless nights, the constant demands and a lack of a social life, but a year on and I’m only now starting to feel a little bit like myself again.
I think the fact I’m working regular hours again and talking to other human beings who don’t all have babies, and feeling happier leaving Ethan overnight with the grandparents, has all reminded me of who I was before we had Ethan. I’m starting to emerge from a bubble…. I’m running again, I’m drinking wine more regularly, catching up with more friends and now the sun is shining I’m feeling pretty damn good! As for the knitting – well it’s on a bit of a back burner…. You may recall I knitted a bobble hat a couple of weeks back – perfect for this weather. And now I’ve decided that the woolly shawl I’m working on isn’t really that urgent! Still, I’m sure I’ll be picking up the needles in good time.
Ethan’s walking now, so a phase has only just begun……



Blog fail

May is fast becoming a blog write-off. I did attempt to post a couple of days ago, and I had a colourful and witty piece, complete with photos, ready to go all about Ethan’s 1st birthday. However “computer said no” and when I pressed the publish button, my minutes of carefully crafted wit were erased forever. It’s a shame, it was a truly spectacular post – but for now, you’ll just have to read this rubbish instead.
I’ll try harder next time.

Mr grasshead – the sequel

I promised you an update of Mr Grasshead and I’m aware that it’s been a while since my last post.
All of a sudden I appear to be ridiculously busy, and we have the impending first birthday for Ethan approaching.
I’ve posed him here (Mr Grasshead, not Ethan) next to a pineapple, of which I think he bears a strong resemblance, and I appreciate that a haircut might be on the cards shortly.
Enjoy the wet bank holiday weekend!
