Rowan!

Rowan’s talking is finally progressing quite well – I think he’s finally figured out that he has to talk to us if he wants “stuff” (more please; please more) and he’s beginning to use more syllabals and string words together (piece of toast, hello daddy, bye daddy). There are loads of sounds he can’t (seemingly) […]

Holiday pour moi?

We seem to be contemplating the idea of going abroad over Christmas – it’s always a slightly stressful time of the year, and it also coincides with about the only quiet time of the year I get (with Pale Purple). And I’ve sort of promised Kat a holiday in return for putting up with quite […]

Help! Lost Cat…

I still find this image funny – we spent about 10 minutes giggling like girls at it this afternoon in the office. It’s almost tempting to phone ‘Paul’ up and say it’s my lost cat… http://www.eatliver.com/img/2009/4813.jpg
