Oct. 17th, 2007

Today I am wearing my long plastic fuschia beaded Necklace Of Happiness even though it matches no aspect of my outfit because it's only the middle of the week and between work and uni I've been doing 12 hour days and frankly I need the emotional boost.

London is all grey and aside from the day when I walked out to find the city hung with gilded mist, there has been no other edifying features of this state of affairs. It is becoming especially ardurous to get up in the morning, since the alternative is remaining in Z's arms, snuggling into each other like puzzle pieces, feeling the baby do its morning disco routine in my belly.






But! Look!


London also regularly does things which delight me. Like the fact that someone went to the trouble of making these big paper cranes and hanging them up in a tunnel next to Vauxhall Station. The sight of them cheers me up every time I go to my course.

There should be more of this sort of thing. Hang up more cheery stuff random stuff in London! I feel so strongly about this issue, I would vote for whichever mayoral candidate makes this a part of their campaign.

wow - that's quite a bump.

If I'm elected I promise to string up Boris Johnson from Vauxhall railway bridge... hopefully he's random enough, and even occasionally cheery.

only if you festoon him with glitter and some comedy teeth. (And I will totally vote for you if you promise that. :))

I LOVE YOUR BELLY! Where and how can I get one of my own?

The belly should come emblazoned with sternly worded words of health warning (like a packet of cigarettes), but happily the process of acquiring the belly is most fun indeed.

Ah yes, I was fond of that in a way I wasn't of the higher tube fares. I wish he hadn't stopped there though and that there could still be random gigantic animals placed in other parts of London a bit like those clay ears that pop up on walls in Covent Garden.

that is an impressive belly :D and I think that necklaces that don't go are the perfect kind!

I think you may well be right. Onwards to a bright new non-matching necklace future!

And I, the oppressive mother that I am, am still keeping it in! Until the 1st of December at least.

Also, it's almost your birthday? Are you excited yet?

Hehehe, I'm actually quite fond of the belly since it doesn't particularly obstruct any of my daily activities and can be counted on to enliven boring meetings with some hot baby-squirming action.

I'm loving the trend in celebrities who grow huge while pregnant and just don't care. Milla Jovovich is another fine example.
