Context

I am so glad that this is a short week ahead. I only plan to be in work Monday to Wednesday, work permitting, and then it should be a nice break from work.

I was talking to G on the phone last night, whose sister is getting married over the summer – and apparently I am invited to the wedding. I am not entirely thrilled by this prospect, particularly as I am not sure that the first time I get to meet G’s family would ideally be at a wedding. But I guess at least the focus will be on someone else that day! It all just feels a bit serious to be going to family weddings and the like and it’s making me a bit nervous. I’m sure that in time I will get used to the idea though.

I got a text from a friend yesterday to say that she’d just had her new baby – it weighed 10lbs 3oz. Wow. I have no idea if she had a caesarean section, but one has to hope that she did because that would have been quite some mammoth task otherwise. Compare that to some friends who had a very premature baby last year. He has just celebrated his first birthday and now weighs about 12lbs. I guess it’s all about context.

TF - do I get to blame you if it all goes wrong?? I like to have a get out clause...

It won't go wrong (but just in case take note of where the fire exit is) :) TF

TF - Good advice. I'll keep that in mind.

LKSN - I guess so. I hadn't thought of it like that. Still scary though.
