You know, when I started this thing I thought “gee, we’re spending cash on a fancy bathroom refit, why not be mr helpful and do the back room?”
To whom it/05/concern:
Darn, this is one serious roller-coaster ride ;-) What happened today is only just becoming clear now (at 17:17 - twelve and a half hours after we thought Nick went into labour). What actually happened, was that Nicki contracted some quite potent tummy bug (probably from her friend Alison’s mother-in-law who came down from Scotland with a bug) and the pains were the aches of violent food poisoning (imagine violent vomiting and endless diarrhea, body temperature all over the place - not nice, but for someone due in a few days, easy to mistake for Labour).
first contractions at 04:30 this am - mother currently in bath…
Have just picked up a nifty digital camera (which works with iPhoto, which turns a gimmick into a useful appliance) and have started snapping. In the nav over on the left there’s a link to “scrapbook” that’s where I’ll be keeping pictures.
Got a call last night from a slightly pissed José-Antonio from a bar in Köln - the whole gang was there, Ben and Laura, Bill and Caroline, I think Ado, Robert and Daniel were all going to make the big day.
