See, I said I'd forget about this. I used to be incredibly efficient, it came with being a journalist, you had to know who was where and doing what and when you could manage to pin down which person it was you needed to speak to.
I wouldn't say I used to hang around on the streets but there were odd occasions when I'd just happen to bump into the councillor/policeman etc that I needed to ask something when they left the supermarket or the pub!

Waiting, anticipating

by frankie_n_baby on Thu Jan 15, 2009 11:12 am
I am wondering whether my order from babykind will arrive today. I hope so, as that package contains my big variety of nappies. I have more to order, and now I think of it, I'm certain I had a nappy dream last night! :oops: How geeky! Anyhoo, I must remember to get more liners for my terrys, and wraps for them, too. I might also buy some more terrys. Not sure why, but I...

It's all an experiment

by JabberJabber on Mon Sep 08, 2014 8:22 am
We might call the children Experiment #1 and Experiment #2 but sometimes it really does seem like they are experimenting on us.

Isaac sat at the table this morning eating breakfast whilst Anthony and I were getting ready upstairs. Isaac starts to call for daddy.

Anthony comments to me "he'll just need to wait a moment"

"Dad" (short, staccato)
"Dad" (slightly louder)
"Daddy" (gentle)
"Dadeeeee" (sweetly)
'Dad, dad, dad, dad" (insistently,...
