Babies and Toddlers

I managed a five-day working week last week, which is only the second one so far this year. Anyway, in the middle of that, we found time for a trip to the Midlands on Wednesday evening to see buzzy_bee and the_muttster — and of course buzzy_babe, who was two days old and a teeny tiny little thing (despite weighing nine pounds ounces more than smallclanger at birth — how soon we forget!). smallclanger didn't poke him too much, and gave him some nice cuddles and kisses.

On Saturday morning we set off for Lincolnshire to see land_girl, bisonfish and (of course) bisonbaby (who is no longer a baby, really). We also had the company of Mr. and Mrs. hartleyhare for the afternoon. Despite a couple of small fights over rights to the pushchair and a couple of board books, smallclanger and bisonbaby got on quite well together. In the evening they went for a bath, although smallclanger refused to sit down and bisonbaby refused to have her teeth brushed. (After he got out of the bath, smallclanger showed her how it was done.)

The next day we went out for lunch at a slightly eccentric pub where all the food is pies and you have to order in advance. Despite the fact that it wasn't a proper pie (just a dish of stuff with pastry on top), it was a pretty good meal.

Then, alas, it was time to say our goodbyes and we were off home. In order to avoid the horrible junction 10 on the M40, we came back via Banbury. Actually, that's a lie. The real reason is because I got confused on the A14 by assuming we wanted to go West and we ended up in Rugby by mistake. Ah well.

We stopped by at bopeepsheep's mum's for a couple of hours to say happy Mothering Sunday, and then came back and had a late tea.

All in all, it was a pretty good week. And I have to post this quickly now so that we can set off to the QL party. It's a busy life.
