AWOL

Sorry I've been absent for a while. A quick recap on life lately:
  • Baby crawling/sliding around at speed of knots. Scary.
  • Baby in love with Little People's Farm toy and the noises it makes. Also hypnotised by In The Night Garden. Down side - teeth are hurting on a regular basis.
  • Judy - getting no writing time and it's getting her down.
  • Obsessively checking the Instant Seduction info on I Heart Presents since they announced they'd picked winners. Not that I'm in the least thinking it could ever be me - I'm just an obsessive about announcements!
  • Reading Silhouette Nocturnes for a nice change.
  • New windows coming soon (please get rid of this 'orrible windy/rainy weather first or we will all freeze for a week!)

Happy Easter to all.

I'm off to catch crazy crawling baby. jx

Two Facts

Two facts (one exciting, one not so exciting) -

Good fact - My baby is just cutting her first tooth - yey! I found it yesterday. What a clever baby.

Not So Good fact - I'm just about to spend an awful lot of money on crazily perfect windows to replace crazily imperfect ones. Glazing nightmare. Let's just say I'd like to have very stern words with the 'rubbish' builder of my rather new house. Big financial ouch.

No other news - but I LOVE Pip's idea about a hen lit novel about Ebay-itis. Pip - you are inspired! (Big air kiss) Can I pinch it (in order to finance my windows)? lol

Ebay

I've just sold several baby items on the wonderous thing that is Ebay. A breastpump, a baby bather and a bumbo! Aliteration all the way.

I always punch the air in excitement when I get an email informing me I've sold - is this the rush that gamblers get when they win on a slot machine? And am I subconsciously seeking affirmation/cheap thrills by selling my old wot nots?

The point of this post is threefold -
1 - Babies go through things way too fast
2 - I have a hunch that there are a lot of postmen who secretly curse the burden of Ebay (one of them is currently lugging my baby's Ex Bumbo).
3 - Do I need to get out more and stop surfing the web?

Don't answer the last one.
Thank you.
