Yo Gabba Gabba

I have married a child!
All weekend my beloved husband has been playing this song to me.
Apparently it is originally from an American kids tv show and a radio dj we listen to over here has mixed it over a song by The Ting Tings.
At first i just rolled my eyes but then found myself bopping along to it without realising!
Click on the title of the post to hear it, it's the only way i can figure to put it on here!

Tuesday Ten #7

Name three of each:

1. a movie that made you laugh

Twin Town
Napolean Dynamite

2. a book that made you cry

I can only think of one and i cant remember the name of it!
When i was 15 i went on holiday with my friends Sarah and Lisa and Lisa's family, all three of us girls read the same book by the pool and we all cried.
All i can remember which is a bit embarrassing is that it was written by Geoffrey Archer!

3. a best friend


4. a favorite childhood memory

My brother teaching me his secret language while his mates were at the chippy and when they came back they didnt know i knew what they were saying :0)

When i was about 6, it was bonfire night and all the family were going to a bonfire but my sister wouldnt let me out of the living room. I lost my 6 year old temper and pushed her backwards through a glass* door, naughty me!

My brother having to babysit me so taking me out with him and his mates, they used to drive to a country pub and leave me sat in the car with a bottle of coke and a packet of crisps and on a good night somebody's dog for company! Not a memory of fun times just of how cheeky my brother was!

5. your favorite animal

Ginger Cat
Tortoiseshell Cat
Salem (friend Lee's cat)

6. your favorite food


7. an item of clothing you can't do without


8. something you collect

Erm i don't!

9. your favorite store to shop in

New Look
Red Herring

10. your favorite flower


* It was more like cheap perspex but it still shattered!

Another weekend...

has come and gone.

Friday we went back to the midwife who listened for the heartbeat again and confirmed that everything was fine...again.

Saturday Chris was working but managed to get home mid afternoon, we got a chinese and sat watching TV till late and then went to bed.

Sunday, not entirely sure why we chose Sunday but we started painting the living room and oh how the lovely bright paint shows up how awful the rest of it has become since it was done last, cant wait to get it done!

And so back to work today, who knows i might manage a full week this week, something i'm sure they'd appreciate as it's month end!

I just felt my baby move for the first time!

We had a great weekend!

On Saturday we lazed around on the sofa watching TV, went for an afternoon snooze and then got up, got ready and went to a housewarming/birthday party at Holly and Lisa's.
Sunday we bought a barbeque and Chris went to watch the football in the pub with Keith and Lee, i picked them up after the match and we had a bbq and ended up sitting in the garden till around midnight.
I did/do have photo's but our "dongle" doesnt seem to be working and my phone software wont work with vista so for the time being they are stuck on my phone!

Monday was just the normal day at work, it was Sydney's birthday so we visited after work for a while and then went home.
I can't believe she is 3!
Oh and bless her, she has chicken pox!

Tuesday i got up for work to discover i was bleeding again, we phoned the midwife number for advice and were told to go to the early pregnancy unit.

We eventually managed to park and went in where they listened for baby's heartbeat which they found immediatley (YAY!) and then decided to do a speculum examination.

This confirmed that the neck of the womb is closed (a good thing) but she took a swab and said i may have some sort of infection so to ring on Friday for the results.
I was advised because of the drive i have to work not to come in for a couple of days so today is my first day back in and i will probably be off tomorrow as i have to go and see the midwife to listen to the heartbeat again!

So it's been another one of those weeks, i've been sat at home feeling like a fraud as there isnt really anything wrong wih me and the hospital seem sure the baby is fine.

It may sound odd but we're hoping it IS an infection, at least then we will know what it is and what we can do about it.
I know the hospital can't tell us much as they don't know themselves but when they say we can do nothing but go home and see what happens they might as well be saying go home and see if you have a miscarriage!

I'm making the hospital sound bad which is not my intention at all, they have been really really good and i can't really fault them (although they could do with extra parking!)

You hear parents moaning about how their children are always a worry, even as adults you cant help but worry about them, looks like Pug's just getting in early with the worry...

I just discovered

that my husband is not, i repeat NOT, working this weekend for the first time in weeks :0)

After a pretty awful few days it was just the news i needed

Pol is a happy girl as she finishes work today :0)

Just back

from a midwife appointment and everything is good!

AND we got to hear baby's heartbeat :0)

Tuesday, 6 May 2008


When i woke up this morning i was bleeding.

We went to the hospital where they couldnt hear the heartbeat.

They did a scan and thankfully there was baby jumping around with a normal heartbeat.

So today has been scary but baby Pug as we've taken to calling him/her is still there and going strong.

I don't think either of us has ever been so scared.
