Had a lovely birthday - thank you for the lovely comments. Rob bought me a stunning crystal heart from Swarovski on a leather thong so Oz can tug on it all he likes. Got lots of cards, some money and vouchers so I'm off on a spending spree....
My friend Julie and her daughter Mya came round and we had lunch at Miso (a noodle bar) in Bromley - lovely lovely.
Then Rob took me to Strada for dinner - he'd booked it himself and it was lovely - garlic bread, prawns, fiorentina pizza. We were going to have dessert there but they'd run out of vanilla ice cream and crepes so we stopped at Sainsbury on the way home, bought a proper birthday cake and had that when we got home.
All lovely then.
Liz had babysat - not a peep out of Oscar......until she left - ten minutes later he woke up but went back to sleep no problem.
1am - he woke up. And he stayed awake. He'd settle and then just as you got back into bed, he'd start up again. We changed his nappy. Gave him a drink. Cuddled him. Rocked him. Ignored him. Gave him Calpol. He went back to sleep at 3.15.
He woke up again at 6.15.
So I'm KNACKERED today......I managed to get about half an hour's sleep when he went back to sleep this morning. But I'm a zombie. I remember many years ago, the day after a birthday was always a sleepy day....but at least it was self-inflicted....
I can't WAIT till Kirsti gets here - she'll be an angel and take over and let me sleep.......look out K - you're going to be spending a LOT of time with your nephew!
