What I Did This Week...


Finally, exactly one week late and after 40 hours (!!!) of labour, baby Benjamin was born. He's pretty ginger and pretty gorgeous and we've pretty much spent the rest of the week running about like headless chickens trying to work out how the hell to keep both him and ourselves alive at the same time. It's a terrifying task, but we're gradually getting there as much as we ever can hope to! I'm such an unnecessary panicker that I'm just having to try not to worry about anything or I'd worry about it all all the time, and I really don't want to be one of those women who calls the hospital every time he breathes weirdly...

Anyway! I just thought I should update those of you who don't live on Twitter, and thank the people who sent lovely cards and awesome parcels (thankyou thankyou thankyou Ellie and Hanna!!) and say that there probably won't be an awful lot of book related content on here for a while at least, although I am currently reading The House at Riverton by Kate Morton and really enjoying it! If you can bear with me through the randomness and baby posts, I'm sure I'll be back to something resembling normal at some point in the not to distant future! :-)

  9. AAAAAAAAARGH! *quietens down so she doesn't wake the baby* Aaaaargh! Oh Bex, you look so content on that photo, it's lovely! I hope you, hubbie and baby Benjamin have a scrumptious few weeks bonding and settling in together... Staying alive definitely helps, that's good - and I don't think anyone would mind a cute baby post or twelve! :D

  10. Wow, there's no way I'd have got a post up this quickly if I'd just had a baby; you are an amazing, multi-tasking Wonder Woman!

    And a Mum too! Wow. I know I've said it before, but it's so amazing Bex. *hugs*
