Things to do before you have kids

Of course you CAN do all of the below after you have had kids, but it is harder, especially while they are small.
  1. Have long luxuriant baths, maybe together.
  2. Go out - Theatre, fine dining etc.
  3. Be unpredictable - drinks after work, spur of the moment fun.
  4. Cinema.
  5. Indulgent all-day shopping.
  6. Travel.
  7. Be lazy, have lie-ins and naps.
  8. Volunteer.
  9. Work late.
  10. Stay up late and get very drunk.

6 months later ...

… and I am back at work, in a different job (still at Fairtrade).

Minnie is doing well, and is starting to become a proper person.  She is at that stage where you feel like you are chatting with her, even though she can't talk yet.  Penny talks like a grown up and she is not yet 3.

C had 2 months off, but is now back full time.

We have a new house and it is simply wonderful, a proper blessing after a hard year.

So 2014 is upon us, and I do want to keep blogging.  So please forgive the hiatus, and let's se what comes out.
