Extra: Ordinary Moments
So, two more weeks of waiting for an enormous change in my life. How have I spent them?
Well, I did try to watch the eclipse. Unfortunately, the sun wasn't far enough over to be seen from any of our windows and I was having too bad a day to get down into the garden.

Last weekend, a decorator we know stripped the wallpaper in the baby's room; this weekend he hung new lining paper; during the week, he'll be painting the walls (truly the height of laziness of our part - wallpapering's one thing but paying someone to do an hour's worth of painting?! I'm a little embarrassed).
I can hardly wait for the room to be ready - the baby might be sleeping in with us for the first wee while, but I'm getting impatient to assemble the wardrobe and arrange all the teeny wee clothes.
Last night, Bruce came round for an enormous Indian take out. Turns out one of the many Indian takeaways within 50 yards of our flat is awesome. But, after a couple of experiments this week, I can confirm: curry does not start labour.
Hi! I'm a 30-something stay-at-home feminist mother-of-one. I live in Aberdeen, Scotland with my toddler, boyfriend and two black cats.
