And welcome us all, With so many light years to go, And things to be found

8 January 2006

Got a text message a while ago, Brother #1’s girlfriend has gone in to hospital, looks like I’ll be an aunt fairly soon. The parents were en route from Tip when I rang[1] and will let me know whats going on.

NM stayed over for the weekend, but after she headed off today I wandered into town[2] and purchased things. My excuse, I got some HMV vouchers and so must avail of their spend over 35 quid and get a fiver off. I did buy


  1. it is very foggy in the midlands so be careful if you are driving
  2. okay, so I live in the city, so not that far to wander
  3. Anne, you’ll have to get Serenity now
  4. which I’ve meant to watch on so many occasions, but never have

    I first saw Spinal Tap in the kino – the IFI kino! and I wondered why the scene with "our half-inflated Dark Lord" was missing. Then I was told that was on the Simpsons…
    Isn't the labour a bit early? Not worryingly early, I hope.
    And you'll be the best aunt ever! Like you're the best sister ever.
    And you left out the bit in the blog where you said "NM stayed over and it was brilliant". I need my props!

    The due date is the 16th, so round a week early. Don't think it is a false alarm, but you never know.

    Bet it's a boy…

    Is it your first nephew/niece?
    I will keep my end of the bargain, I just hope you'll like The Breakfast Club. :)

    Yup. First sprog of the next generation.

    As regards The Breakfast Club, all I have to do now is find the time. (I'm sure I put some aside, but whenever I go looking for it, there it is, gone)
