Simple things (or How to Know You are Old)

How to Know You Are Old:

1. The baby had two daytime sleeps, one for two hours, one for an hour and a half;
2. You went to the swimming pool, the baby did not scream, and you got to do 16 laps yourself;
3. In the afternoon you went to the local primary school fete and bought herbs and ridiculously cheap second hand toys;
4. You had extremely delicious pressure cooker lamb shanks for dinner, thrown together whilst your lovely husband fed and bathed the baby;
5. The baby went to bed without any fuss or trouble;
6. You are sitting on the couch drinking red wine - now permissible as (fingers-toes-and-other-appendages-crossed) the baby has consented to give up night feeds;
7. You are watching Gardening Australia;
8. Your lovely husband is sitting next to you on the couch;
9. Rather than seeming sad or boring or old, all of the above makes you stupidly happy.

Lovely and grown up, not old!

Henry has been busy watering the strawberry plant today. You can imagine how attentive he's being.... we might have a swamp in a pot at the end of the week. Wiggles book is also getting a v. good read.
