Today I came down with a nasty cough, and Peter, Owen and baby were still having their nasty colds. We're a poorly bunch! But we've got cake.

Today I baked a rhubarb cake using the rhubarb in our garden while baby was napping. It was a bit burnt in the end as I was then busy breastfeeding. We intend to eat it all by ourselves since we have no social life.

Today it was lovely and warm. Grandparents dropped in for an unplanned visit, and both baby Harriet and Owen had a great time with them.

Today we hosted our NCT group's play date, and the chicken pie proved popular with the children. There were 10 children in our house!

Today was manic staying in with Owen and Harriet as they both wanted much attention. I spent most of the evening making chicken pie for tomorrow's NCT gathering at our place.

Today we went to Blenheim Palace and Owen ran around and tried out his new balance bike.

Today I spent the entire evening (3-4hrs) booking air tickets. Why was it so complicated? I blame SIA's lousy website, and OK, my indecisiveness too.

Today I went out to cast my vote and also to the post office and to the preschool's nearly new sale.

Today baby Harriet started to get more vocal with me, mainly whingeing and negotiating, and she has the cutest little voice.
