It's been a while

I realised today that a whole month has passed since I last posted to this blog. It feels like now or never if I want to keep it going, so here I am, back for more. Not sure how much or how often I'll post, but I don't want to 'lose' what I've done to date and I do like to think of Dan reading this when he's older.

Talking of Dan, he's now able to sit upright - with a little help, he can roll over and he's started trying to grab things. These include a glass of water that went flying over me in the pub yesterday lunchtime.

We were in the Harbour Inn at Southwold on the Suffolk coast, as part of my friend Peter's 50th birthday celebrations. We stayed at the wonderful House in the Clouds in Thorpeness - as you might imagine from its name the views from the top are stunning. Yesterday morning we had a lovely walk along the coast at Aldeburgh and visited the lovely shops at Snape Maltings - without spending a penny. Whether that makes us disciplined, prudent or downright mean, I'm not entirely sure but it felt curiously virtuous.

What else have we been up to? We've signed up for having an extension built - not least to accoommodate Dan's growing mountain of books and toys. Preparations for Dan's christening at Easter are in full swing and best of all my sister Wicki is coming over from Denmark and will see Dan for the first time.

No photos this time, but will do soon.

Please do keep your posts coming. I've only really got around 10 blogs that I visit regularly. I think I'd miss the pics of Dan if you were to go now! Unfortunately for me I'm having trouble posting here now, but I can still comment!

And never berate yourself for looking and not buying. Some of my happiest memories are visiting these neat little gift shops with my boys as toddlers - keeping a watchful eye on where tiny little fingers went - merely looking.

Good news that your sister is making the Christening!

I bet there's been a huge difference in Dan in these past two months, Paul. Any chance of a pic soon?

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
