meet little liam
i’m back. and what a special time i had – i got to meet little liam!
quintin and johanita were very kind as to let me spend lots and lots of time with them and liam:
i was taken shopping with them, i was there in the mornings, joined them for nappy-changing and even got to spend nap times with liam – with him lying in my arms. he is an olympic sleeper and can charm the socks off anyone when he wraps his little arms around you! it felt so nice to be so close to him and i’m really grateful that i got to spend that time with him – especailly since i probably won’t see him for about a year now!
charlotte and i also bought him the coolest baby clothes – english winter clothes, so that he will be nice and warm and suitably wrapped up when winter comes around to south africa in july. we got him little baby-growers, jerseys and t-shirts. charlotte likes bears so there had to be a bear in there somewhere and of course i had to make sure he had something with spaceships and aliens on it!! 😀
i also got to spend time with quintin and johanita, of course, which was really nice too, as i miss them a lot. quintin and i even managed to squeeze in a little cricket, and, as usual, we both went for it a bit too much and the next day my back and thighs were very stiff indeed! 🙂
my mom and i, too, got to spend a lot of time together. we went to dinner, watched “buck rogers” in the evenings and often just stopped for a chat at the kitchen table. there was much fussing and joking about her cats as always, especially with there being two more cats this time round! the new additions are cyan and helen and they are british short hairs or chartreaux and photos will follow shortly.
the rest of the time i saw my family and friends, and had lunch after lunch after lunch, and dinner after dinner – i felt quite roman…! it was such a full time; i saw so many people, i did so much… and i even got a chance to watch some cricket 😉
