Applications and Babies


I've sent in my applications for a couple of jobs. Wish them luck, they'll need it.
The dentist wants to do some root treatment on my remaining molar. So that will be a fun day off!

AND best of all we've just come off the phone with my brother over in Alberta. His little boy was born just over an hour ago, weighing in at 7lb 1 and a half. He has no name yet but apparently does have a bit of a cone head! So I AM AN AUNTIE!!!!!!!! He'll be first generation Canadian (think he might have dual nationality and hold a UK passport because of my brother and sister-in-law).

Sorry for the random photo. It's a klappar skalbagge (skalbagge being Swedish for beetle). I found it in Ikea (I place I don't totally like) and I couldn't help myself (which explains the huge soft toy camel - Niles - in my bedroom).
I call him Nigel.

I came very close to buying a Nigel last time I was in Ikea! I still might I think...

Mr Door has neices and nephews, so I guess technically I will be their aunty one day. That will be odd though, because the oldest is just a few years younger than me...

Good luck on the application form front!

Go on you know you want to!
Yea that might be a little weird. wouldn't worry too much... I feel really young because there is a huge age gap between me and my older brother (like 12 years).
I have ALL my fingers and toes crossed!
