After a short absence...

...I'm back. My sister rang me from Detroit to complain that since I haven't updated for a week she had no idea what I was up to.....

2 reasons why I haven't blogged this week - 1 - nothing much has happened - 2 - DH has been a computer hog.

Oscar is teething. And any mothers out there will know how much fun that is. He's usually such a happy babe - it's not like him to be grumpy. And he's got really bad nappy rash and a snotty nose to boot so he hasn't been as much fun this week.

My car didn't break down any more which was good. We haven't heard anything from the bank yet which is bad - I've reported it all and filled in all the forms so now we have to wait until they get back to us.

I've eaten lots of chocolate but what the hell - it's Easter. I won't have lost weight this week but to be totally honest I don't give a flying fuck. I need chocolate.

It's nice having DH around for 4 days - he's currently in heaven downstairs because tonight is the premier of Dr Who, the new series (which is also why I'm on the computer for a change). I'm taping it to watch later. He's a SERIOUS Who geek and has been waiting for this moment for years.....

I'm wracking my brains trying to think of something either funny or interesting to tell you but I draw a blank....hope you all have happy Easters and that the Easter Bunny is good to you. Hope you get some sunshine and spring cheer...

Our clocks go back tonight so that could cause havoc with my baby routine (not that I've stuck to it at all this week) At least it will mean Oscar wakes up at 7.30am rather than the 6.30am start I've had most mornings....

Ok - will try and have a more interesting life this coming week and share it with you all

Sal - they go forward not back!! Don't go the wrong way!

Me and Mike really enjoyed Dr Who - I really like Christopher Eccleston so it wasn't a chore to watch at all.

Glad you're back updating, I was on the verge of complaining too!

Joyce was mentioned in The Times yesterday, I meant to email you and tell you - something about her new play, quoting her saying that it's not her and Ken who are the extroverts in her family, but the other brother who is a businessman and first up on the karaoke.

Sal--do you all have vegetable shortening over there? We call it Crisco over here, thick, white, buttery consistency that we use for baking?

Use it on Oz's bum. When Linnea cut her first teeth she had a horrible rash--she actually bled. The veggie shortening was the only thing that stayed on through wet and brown and protected her little bottom. I know it sounds crazy, but it works!

By the way.. the clocks went forward, not back. "Spring forward, fall back" if you're American. Ours don't change until next weekend, just to add to the confusion.
