The Blog After the Blog Before

So I couldn’t think of a good title for this entry, so the random title will just have to do. I haven’t written anything for a week now, so I’m going to play catch up.

Last week Monday was Labour Day here which means bank holiday: Made up for missing the bank holiday Monday in England as that day was a working day here. The four of us went to Gilroy shopping outlets on the Monday and probably spent too much money, but it was all so cheap and people did give us spending money to spend after all.

Good Day Santa Cruz

Today was another great day.

After writing my blog from last night I continued my search for my Black 80GB Zune and I found a store called CircuitCity which had them in stock at the San Jose branch. Needless to say, I swiftly placed my reservation and we collected them first thing this morning, so Gaz – it’s in the bag.

Jessie and the Teeth

Although I just wrote a blog, I thought I would blog this one seperatly.

Jessie is no longer Jessie two fang: She has been upgraded to Jessie 4 fang. Her top two teeth have been teetering on the edge of coming through for the past few days and today it’s pretty must offical that they are through, so say hello to four fang!

What a cute little podge 🙂

San Jose Here We Are

So we flew out of Heathrow Terminal 5 on Sunday at about 2pm, landed at San Francisco about 4.45pm, 8hrs behind UK time after a traumatic demon child filled 10hr flight here, but that said the flight was great. We flew British Airways on a 747 which was an experience being on something that big, and I have to say I was most impressed by their in flight entertainment service which was an on-demand video, music and TV service meaning we could watch what we wanted when we wanted and it worked really well. I’d love to know what they had running that for a media server because it must have had a hell of a lot of horsepower under the bonnet!

LazyTown Live!

Today after swimming, we came home and picked up some stuff and headed down to mums. Why? We had tickets to see LazyTown Live!

We had tickets for the 5pm showing, and it was really good. We arrived a bit early so sat in a pub next door to have a drink while we pondered if Dave would have a nervous breakdown trying to look after Jessica while me, Nicky, Mum and Maddy where out and while in the pub we where amazed by the number of kids who where all dressed up in their Stephanie and Sportacus outfits for the show.

We all really enjoyed the show and probably all ate far too many sweets and ice cream, and it was obviously all a bit too much for Maddy Moo as she fell asleep during the second half of the show and missed the ending songs and dances etc which where cool.

All in all a good day – Now CBeebies Live at Wembeley in December to look forward to 🙂

First Tooth, Busy Day

I haven’t blogged anything in quite a while now, so I thought I would write one about the fun of today.

It’s half term this week for swimming so there wasn’t any getting up early to get out of the house and get ready to go swimming with the girls. No, instead Maddy woke up at about 6.30am and with me not being on any kind of plain of reality, my brain assumed it was a work day, so without thinking about it, I got up and got in the shower and upon returning to the bedroom I noticed it wasn’t even 7am by this point.

I decided that I’d go downstairs at that point as I’d promised Nicky a lie in today.

Many Moons Ago

Many moons ago, I posted a blog entry here – This is a myth, so I’m not sure if it is true, however I have decided that it is time that I should write again.

So what’s new? Lets just say that if there as anything more that was new, I would be Prime Minister – And I’d probably do a better job* 🙂

Well obviously we have Jessica, who is nearly four months old now. She’s making noise, rolling over, smiling and still the usual eat, sleep and pooh routine. Maddy is neatly two now, and is so funny you just can’t imagine. She makes us all laugh very much, but soemtimes cry as she is the most destructive litle monster that you could imagine and she does love to climb and jump on things – Does she! I’m sure she’s going to become either a mountain climber or some kind of gymnast jumping around.

En Route

A late one is today’s blog, but it’s worth being up for.

Nicky has finally made it to the point of what can be described as no return, although being 9 months pregnant is fairly non-return in itself.

We had our midwife out earlier today and she did a stretch and sweep (I’m not going into details, but if you want to know Google it!) which kicked off Nicky’s contractions. She’s been putting up with them all afternoon and evening, and whilst they haven’t been long or regular they have been changing the expression on her face 🙂Read more…
