1. Nick has taken the day off so I can see to a couple of appointments. We have a lie-in.
2. I go into the bathroom to wash and dress, and I shut the door completely because Alec is not lying on his play mat supervising me. He's busy entertaining Nick in the bedroom.
3. I get my legs waxed for the first time since Alec's birth. I leave it up to you to imagine what a relief this is. The excuse is that I was worried about what to do with Alec during the appointment. When I tell my beautician, she says: "This is a family business. Some of my ladies bring their babies along. I even gave one lady a treatment with her baby lying on her chest."
