Scary, huh?

3 in a row

As of last Monday, D'Arcy has lost 3 teeth in a row from the top, this leaves a massive gap, through which he can poke his tongue, but claims he can't poke a straw. I don't believe it for a minute. He has at least one more wobbly tooth (on the bottom), and some of the new ones are growing in now.

A week of marriage, and not much is different, but I heard from various adults in D'Arcy's school life that he'd been tellling them about the wedding.

My belly has expanded alarmingly. Well, it hurts and the midwife was slightly alarmed, especially when I told her it's been hurting and I feel like throwing up most of the time. She suggested rest, hot water bottles and Panadol, which is helping, but I'm totally buggered all the time now. I'd like to be cleaning and going for walks, but I just can't summon the energy. If I can't do it with a hot water bottle on my belly, it can't be done. Lots of time on Facebook (feel free to look for me) playing Scrabble is on the agenda for the next little while.

"I know what I'd do if I was Prime Minister" by D'Arcy, age 7

I would give money to poor people who have no home and I would build a stage where the prime minister works, hire rock singers so I could have a band. I would give my property away and getter better stuff than what I had. I'd get cooks and chefs, and they would also make food for my servants.

My Day

In a nutshell...

Here we are with our celebrant. The thing on the tripod is a microphone, connected to the laptop which facilitated a Skype video hookup with St Paul, where the beloved's family are.

We had a lovely day, very small, with just my immediate family and one friend each. Went to a restaurant in the country for fabulous lunch, and then home for more drinks (for the drinkers amongst us).

You can see a bit of my belly in this shot, and when I get it together I'll put more photos up on Flickr.

Edit: and now I have. The ones that are there so far were taken by my sister, on my camera. There'll be more soon taken by my dad and step-father.
