Points of interest

This could be interesting. I absolutely loved the book, I’m normally not a fan of that kind of writing, being much more in the mood for Chuck Palahnuick, but I’d go see this just out of curiosity.

Speaking of which (as in books), yesterday was the first time since, oh, Jasper was born, that I had the urge to start reading again. For someone who wants to be a proper writer, as in a writer of fiction, this state of affairs has been both horrifying and mystifying. Glad to see it might be over, just as I really won’t have time to read anything except how to cook meals from a can.

Chef asked me to stop being cranky last night, so I cried instead.

I need the internet world to know that I love my mum to the furthest corners of my cold, ungrateful heart. That I admire her, respect her and think she is amazing.
I just H.A.T.E. living with her.
In a nutshell it is all about privacy, me being fiercely independent and her drawing from her experience when she lived far from family and no-one came and helped her when we were little . That and just the standard generational differences.

Chef and I have been talking about the future. I like it.

    Hang in there- Im sure not long to go……What was chef thinking when he asked you to stop being cranky – did he forget the part in your marriage vows where it says “wife has god given right to whinge whilst pregnant with your child”
    ps how can you ask nigella to move over??????!!!!!

    Oh he asked in the nicest of ways. It was more a plea really, or perhaps even begging!

    The excitement is starting to out weight the “over-it”-ness.

    OH well, there has to be room for a few at the stove, surely!

    Oh my, you have been busy with the blogging.

    I have to say I would have been worried to have no phone line at this late stage of a pregnancy.

    Your ticker says 2 days to go, so I wanted to wish you all the best for the birth. Hope it’s quick and painfree. LIke labours mostly are haha. I also hope that the hospital food is good and that if you are sharing a room you get nice people in with you.

    Good luck!!

    Every other blogger that I have read who read “The Lovely Bones” bagged it, so i’m glad i’m not the only one who actually found it beautiful, although very hauntingly, hauntingly sad.
