I know, I know… It’s been quite a while since I last blogged. If I’m honest it’s because I really haven’t had enough banter to do so. Not much has been going on here and we all know that doesn’t really result in great blogging conversation. As usual, I’ve spent a lot of time visiting my dentist – another tooth removal. Boo. hoo. Unfortunately, there is now a great whopping space in my mouth awaiting another expensive implant. This time round things were a lot more traumatic than the last, which resulted in much sobbing in the dentist’s chair… who knew it could get any worse!? Anyway, I’m over that now (not really) and I’ve stopped feeling sorry for myself (all lies).
The good news is that we’ve got a trip to New York to look forward to in about three weeks. This was booked before I knew about the new boiler that we need and the new tooth. Our year of saving has been a little dented, but we managed to get flights for only £305, so I’m clinging on to that little bit of luck and hoping it will be a holiday to remember. I’m sure we’ll have a great time!
Some more good news is that one of my good friends in Australia is due to have a baby any week now, and another has just announced the news of her pregnancy. Alex and I spent a few shopping trips looking for gifts to send them and had an amusing few hours looking like total novices in baby stores in Bluewater shopping center. I never thought that shopping for such tiny things could be so time consuming! If you are trying to stop someone feeling broody, then my advice is to just take them shopping for baby goods… How much money do you need to spend on one little person? Cripes! We were particularly flabbergasted at the price of the push chair with gloves built into the handle bar… We all know that’s the one I’ll be needing, if the day ever comes, but for now I’ll settle with my terrible twosome ;)
