My life for the next 5 months

Preferably with a sleepy baby.

The youth of today

I think Florence for a walk around the park this afternoon and there where bit one but two groups of youths smoking pot. FFS. I don't mind them doing it, they just shouldn't really be doing it in public. The second group were huddled inside the public toilet so I couldn't use it.

Chicago in less than 2 weeks

We popped into London on Friday to get our US visas.  All good, they just need to send our passports back to us which should be at some point over the next couple of days.

All this means we're good to go Chicago on Saturday 31st March!  Not long at all.

We're very excited by it all but things are daunting too, we've got loads to pack but we're still using half of it (Florence's clothes etc.) so can't really pack anything.  If it was up to me we'd just rush it on the Friday before but pretty sure April won't allow that.

Park Life

Enjoying the park.

Since i've been off i've been averaging around 20,000 steps per day.  Mostly walking around and again the playing fields with Florence asleep.

Someone's s fan of the rugby

Supporting the wrong team though!

Pretty dull game really.

Some feeding times are more successful than others

A bit messy

Up the nose!

Pray for me

April's got a keeping in touch day at work today so I've been left at home holding the baby.

Wish me luck...

Saturday's Chicago party

Friends came round the house on Saturday night to see us off to Chicago.  Less than 3 weeks to go now.

Questing time

I met up with Kris and Ian for Questing Time on Sunday night.  It's basically just a bunch of comedians playing Dungeons and Dragons.

It snowed pretty heavily in Kent a couple of weeks ago, so what did I do?  Go sledging!  Not bad for a 38 year old.
