We had roasted beets, roasted halibut, grilled chicken, fired lamb ribs, green garlic pierogies (I don't know so don't ask me) and goat belly with lobster. Oh and we also had some cheese and pavlova. Urgh.
It certainly wasn't cheap but I think it was probably good value.

My ankle was a little sore last night before I went to bed. I hadn't twisted it or anything it was just sore. This morning I had a definite limp. Just now, when I got up to get a glass of water I could hardly put any weight on it. FFS.
I'm pretty sure it sorted itself out after a day but it's a little disconcerting considering I did nothing to damage it. Maybe it was the years of rugby and weighing too much...

The 2 months we've been in Chicago has sailed by. I'm pretty much in a routine these days.
Get up when Flo wakes up
Fingers crossed April doesn't have to go in early
Oh shit. She does (again, I've checked, she's telling the truth...)
Change Flo (probably should have done that at an earlier stage)
Go for a walk
Find somewhere suitable to relax for 5 minutes
Flo wakes up after 2 minutes
Try to get Flo to sleep
Try to get Flo to sleep again...
Lot of crying
Put Flo in a baby carrier
Beg for April to come home early
Wait for response
But hey, this sounds like I'm not enjoying myself. I am. There can't be many young fathers that get to share the majority of thier young child's life in such detail.
It's tough. I'm missing friends, things, things with friends. Booze (20% of my usual intake)
