Seriously, I need more hours in the day! I haven't updateD my blog for almost a week! A combination of us having colds, of me trying to encourage Jamie to move from his bassinette to a cot (ugh!), and of me madly scrapping up some pages for a challenge for Scrapbooking Memories and an article for For Keeps.
Well, the big news this week is that Phil and I finally had a night out. By ourselves. Woohoo! We were invited to a movie night to see the Da Vinci Code. A sign of the times: it started at 5.45pm and I had to start getting ready at 1pm, lol. By the time I got Jamie fed, changed, his bag packed with expressed milk, bottles, nappies, pyjamas etc etc, got us both in the car, drove the half hour to my parents' (who were babysitting), had a chat, gave Jamie another feed, drove home, got myself ready... You get the picture! But it was so worth it!
As I left Mum and Dad's I cranked up the volume on the car radio and remembered who I used to be. It's been six months since I've been able to drive in the car with the radio up loud. And if you knew me pre-baby, you'd know that's what I did. Loved my music with the bass pumping. Phil used to say that I was the only person in our street he could hear coming from the main road.
I think Phil thought I was slightly nuts, because I was quite hyperactive all night, lol. And the movie wasn't too bad. I don't know why it got such bad reviews. Mind you, I am no film connisieur (and no French speaker either, lol!). And probably I would have enjoyed any ol' film they chose to throw on the screen. After all, it was free :). And I haven't been out for six months.
And it won't be the last time, because Phil's work is shouting us a movie/dinner deal. Because Phil has been working so damned hard these last six months. Yeah, great timing. His work goes nuts, just as we have a baby. He's been putting in sixty+ hours a week. Basically he gets home from work at about 7pm, we eat and then he works through til midnight. Crazy. He was cooking tea, but this week we agreed that I would start cooking again as his work is just too much at the moment. Plus he spends all weekend renovating our house. He's starting to burn himself out.
So, we get to go out again. Soon! Mind you, Phil told them that he'd much rather the support person that they promised him over a year ago, than a night out. Hmmmm.
Well that was our big week, lol
