It's been an exciting social week though.
Last week miss_newham came to visit (thank you for the plant! I am doing my best not to kill it) and give my baby messages about being nice to its parents. Coincidentally my baby has been sleeping a lot more since. All hail Jo and her powers of infant persuasion!
Sunday was our first Proper Family Outing and on Monday Z and I seized that Holy Grail of Parenthood, the Baby-Free Date. We left Matei in my mother's charge and went to see a film. (I went crazy with the possibilities and wore pre-baby jeans, and perfume, and dangly earrings, and high heels and a pretty lady top not chosen for breastfeeding ease). It was divine, although I kept glancing at my phone. Getting back home we discovered that the child had slept through it all, although it meant that he then partied until 2am. Win some, lose some.
Other things that are making me happy at the moment:
humanfemale coming back from foreign soon
Novak Djokovic winning the Australian Open. Also the answer he gave in one of the interviews when an American reporter asked him how he reckons that he plays so well coming from such a small country as Serbia and Novak replied: "My only explanation was that when you bombed us, the depleted uranium turns out to stimulate acquisition of tennis skills."
