Breakfast, lap time and rebellion

1. Sneaking downstairs at 6am when everyone is asleep and eating a huge breakfast.

2. "Can I sit on your lap?" asks Alec. For the first time in weeks I can answer "Yes!" Of all the pregnancy niggles, not having a lap made me saddest.

3. "I don't want to see the cricket - it too crickety!" Alec is having a difficult morning.

4. "I'm not going to do the washing up," says Nick. "I'm on paternity leave."

  1. Congratulations on your new baby girl! My daughter is expecting her first baby any time now and so I have been following your pregnancy with hers.
    Can remember that great feeling of getting a lap back.

  3. Congratulations, Clare, Nick and Alec, and welcome Bettany! How lovely.

    Saw this post on a blog recently and thought of you (and Alec).

    1. I've seen that post before, and I love it. I refer back to it from time to time when things get tough.
