On your desk.

Well, it has only taken 6 hours to make the cake and decorate it and I haven't finished yet! Too tired and I haven't finished his card either so I have come upstairs for a sit down and finish the card and the cake toppers and I will finish it off tomorrow.

Ali's friend Kane came over to play for the day, they have been good as gold and so I have been able to get on with the cake. We took a time out to go to the local play zone, I took my laptop with me to occupy me so this is my desk there complete with mocha :) It was a nice peaceful hour and a half!

I cannot believe my baby is going to be 8 :( It seems like a lifetime ago (well it is for him!) and also at the same time about ten minutes ago that I was packing my bag for the hospital and trying to get some sleep as I knew he was coming the next day. Louis' labour went on for about 3 days and ended up with an emergency caesarean so Ali was booked in. In fact I was admitted at 8:30am, he was born at 9:19am :) We were back on the ward, my epidural worn off and in the swing of things by 11am! I generally enjoy seeing the children develop and grow, but there is something about the last one...

One of my managers that I manage at work is on maternity leave, someone came into see me yesterday in the office to tell me she was in the shop with the baby. I was cursing why no-one had told me she had had it and when I got to her she had had her the night before, they had had a good sleep so they thought they would get out and about :) Good on her. Beautiful baby girl Olivia, can't wait to get a cuddle!
