Absolutely amazing and worth the 27 hours of labor my other half had to endure.

Gutted they can't come home tonight though, will be strange leaving them.
I had 27 minutes of labour to endure, that was plenty. I'll maybe see you on BF3 next year...unless you're like me, then I'll see you on BC2 at the weekend;)

Man, the day after sprog was born was the tiredest I've ever been. It's only the beginning though :lol:

Today I picked up her grannies Ford Fiesta that she inherited, I can barely fit into the thing. My legs wrap up around the steering wheel and my head is right up against the roof lining...I'm only 5' 8" FFS :lol: On the plus side, the boot is twice as big as the Swift so I can get the pram into it.

The sooner I trade these things in the better!

EDIT: and tomorrow I go to visit my cousins who are babysitting the Alfa, I never thought I'd say I have too many cars :lol:

Another Sunday of DIY for me... Sawed the old front door in half, because missus wants to keep the stained glass out of it, fitted a new towel rail in the bath room, put up a hook in the bedroom and finally tried to replace the plastic air vent in the bath room, but soon realized my drill is too crap at going through brick so I will need to keep that on hold...but when I removed the grate, I saw a massive graveyard for giant spiders, some huge buggers died in there :|

Just got back from a softball double-header for our work team. First game was pretty crazy - we were down 0-15 going into the last and scored 14 runs in that. By the end of the game we had a couple of runners on and our last at bat was unlucky to get fielded.

Second game was a bit of a blowout as we were getting pretty tired by that stage, final score was close to 10-20 or so.

I think my tally for the night ended up with 3 hits, 2/3 RBIs and a couple of runs.

It's funny because nobody expects a Brit to be playing softball, so I get a lot of banter going on from both my team and the opposition. :)

Today I've decided when my mobile phone contract runs out I'm going to get myself a Nokia 3330.

Found them manufacturer refurbished on e-bay for £30. I think the 3330 is a bit of a design classic and they can take a lot of punishment and neglect. Can't wait to monkey with the shrill, beepy ring tone composer.

That's why I'm getting it. I don't want to succumb to the smart phone obsession, it's getting a bit weird at work, people are permanently glued to them. Used to be just the iPhone bores, now (nearly) everyone's got a smart phone. Sick of trying to speak to people who keep glancing at their phone every 3 seconds. It's quite unnerving when you walk into an office and 10 people are all hunched over their phones, poking away at the screen in a catatonic trance.
