Babychops. Or so we keep telling her. Thank you Aunty Vonne!


Kevin got my table on Saturday and so out came the sewing machine and the little room had more tidying. But it’s been so hot here I could only do five minutes work before I would have to stop and feel ill for another five minutes. Repeat for one hour. Go downstairs for shelter. But the little room is coming along nicely hot though it may be.


This week was Astrid’s first time at the new childminder’s and so far she has learnt to poke her tongue out and spin around and fall on the floor. Tonight Astrid waved. Yep, at long last we actually got not just one wave, but a full three minutes all in one go.


Because I’ve stolen her room Astrid gets the living room for toys and fun things such as rainbow mobiles, blackboards and little chairs and tables. This also means we don’t have to put her alone upstairs to play with her stuff which would just be silliness.


Hat wearing shot for Lies and Ande – she loves the hat now! Loves it!

Now it’s too hot to write. Someone make it rain. Please.
