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……
