On the road again


We're off to Oz again, this time for a quick fortnight which hardly makes the journey seem worth it. Especially as I have to wear those bloody awful compression stockings due to my current condition.

And do you think I could get those in red and black stripes? No, I could not. Seriously, medical clothing manufacturers need to hire a new designer. I hear Galliano might be looking.

So we're arriving Saturday evening -yes, this time DrH is joining me, which means I get to use most of TWO airplane seats, because that's just the kind of wife I am. Currently we have very few confirmed meet ups with friends, so if you want to see us send me an email, comment or fb message. Otherwise I shall spend all my time playing with my nieces and nephews and going to the beach.

Yes, I know you guys all think it's FREEZING, but I had a lovely dinner here on the balcony the other night in a t-shirt while it was 18°C. A little perspective is all one needs and the perspective of the end of another bloody German winter is one way to find 23°C and showers bloody heavenly.

This is the news


Dear Everyone,

I am going to have a baby. Should everything go according to plan it will be here and breathing on its own mid-September.

I shall be doing my best to mostly avoid the really annoying facebook entries concerning pregnancy, childbirth and child-raising. I doubt I shall fully succeed but hereby pinkie swear to try.

There will undoubtably be pictures of the child, but hopefully not that many.

I'm not exactly the desperate-to-be-a-mother type, quite the opposite in fact, so it is unlikely that I will be too overbearing with it.

So now everyone is informed. Have a nice day.
