nothing to say ... !!
Watching lots of tele - Relocation, Relocation, Property Ladder, National Trust, Grand Designs Abroad .... reading books ... feeding the baby.
Had to quickly run out today to buy fruit and bakery items for some visitors and took the newborn in his sling.
Boy, do those things attract attention !
"Excuse me!, excuse me!" called one young woman with one of those ginormous prams of today ( my 2004 model is basically prehistoric these days ) .. "do you have a baby in there ?"
Why yes, yes I do ..
So I went through the model, make, where to buy, why I believe them to be superior to any of those models that require knotting and buckles and rings. Not that i've used any of the latter kinds, but I just KNOW I wouldn't fasten them properly and whullump, my baby would fall out onto pavement, much to the shock, horror, and criticism of passerbys ( " You need a licence to own a dog, but they let anyone have a baby! ", they'd yell at me, jeering, insinuating i'm an unfit mother.)
So then at the fruit market:
"Do you have a baby in there ? Can I see ? Oh, what is it ( ie: boy or girl ), How old is he ? Come look at this baby!". So all the girls at the fruit market have a look and we talk about the sling.
Is it heavy ? is it uncomfortable ?
Same at the bakery, "do you have a baby in there?....."
My goodness picking up a few items took a long time...
( Pic is after we got home, and I took off the sling and dumped it - and baby - on the bed. I thought it looked very pea-in-a-pod .. albiet in autumn stripes... )
