I was waiting to make this post because I wanted to post a photo of the nappy carnage that has overtaken FTC recently, but in reality, it seems there was a higher purpose.

It makes me incredibly happy to tell you all that my best friend, and bump buddy gave birth to her baby yesterday. She went into hospital at 3 and he had arrived by 5 without even gas and air weighing in at 7lb 12oz.

The news, while incredibly welcome has put me in one helluva flap. This is going to sound really odd, but being pregnant, and the idea of a due date felt like a very abstract concept. The dates have ticked by, but it has been such a long time that it feels like I’m always going to get rounder, without any obvious end. I had Sal to keep me company in that journey and the two of us together just seemed to go on and on getting rounder and discovering more about those bumps.

And now she’s gone and given birth, and frankly, it has terrified me. Not because I’m scared of Alfie’s birth in any way, but because there is still so much to do, and suddenly it feels like so little time to do it in.

That brings me neatly onto the subject of nappies. Not only have I taken delivery of the kit from Little Green Earthlets, but by sheer coincidence, on the very same day, I managed to bag an entire bin bag full of assorted washable nappies from Freecycle. It might seem a little odd to need both, but in reality there is a good reason to have a variety of different makes and models because apparently these little people can come in different shapes and sizes which changes the type of nappy which fits them best. Who knew, eh?

The more mature of you might smile nostalgically at this picture – it isn't every day you see a line of white nappies drying these days!
