I suspect that I have limited time to write a post. Piran is asleep but only had a small feed almost two hours ago so I am actually surprised that he is not screaming the place down! Anyway, I just wanted to write something so instead of tackling the ‘proper’ posts that I have flying around in my head I just wanted to get some bits and pieces out.
Wow, these little bundles of fun can be very perplexing at times. What on earth did people do before Google? I have no idea. I have read a number of books and surfed online but honestly keep coming back to Twitter and blogging for help and advice. You have all been just wonderful, so I will keep asking the questions.
Today’s offering: At the moment, when Piran sleeps I have him in which ever room that I am in, so usually the front room in his chair or carrycot during the day and evening and then in his cot in our bedroom when we go to bed. I would like to start putting him down in the cot in our bedroom in the evening so that we just get a hour or so without the baby in the room. I would get a baby monitor to listen in but how old does he need to be before we do this?
I am sure that you all realise and understand that the time I have for reading blogs is limited at the moment! After two weeks of just marking all as read in my google reader I am back to reading the posts but I am afraid that I have turned into a bit of a lurker. I know, the shame! Anyway, I just wanted to say that I am reading and following, I just do so in the middle of the night on my iPod as I try and get Piran to settle which means no way of commenting. Also, I did leave a couple of comments last week on a couple of blogs and spent the next 24 hours with an uneasy feeling that what I was trying to say had come out in a condescending way, or that I had not been coherent enough to get my point across. So it is probably best that I don’t comment for fear of offending you lovely people.
God, I am desperate to be able to sit down and write, however unless I have had a proper nap right before hand I am pretty certain that my attempts would not be that good. There are a couple of websites that I am dying to write something for and contribute to and my birth story NEEDS to be written, for my sanity and for me to finally put it to rest and move on.
I try not to look at it too much. It looks all messy and my blogroll is just appalling and I want to tidy up the sidebar and do so much more. If I had the chance I would love to learn how to do all this stuff myself and design a template that I like but I guess I will have to save that to sometime around Piran’s 18th birthday! I tried to find a college course but they are all in Eastbourne which is too far to go.
However, it cannot all be that bad as I got this lovely award from Miss Leslieanne. As much as cake. A high accolade indeed!
I had hardly done any sewing before I went on maternity leave but I cannot believe how much I miss it at the moment. I am itching to get on with some projects that I have planned and when I was in hospital I received all of this lovely fabric that I ordered from the US and it is just sat there waiting for me to get my hands on it! Look, how cool?
