We're back from Canada! And
back with a new design for the loobylu front page. Please
let me know if anything looks shockingly wrong or out of place,
especially if you are using a mac or netscape.
We had a really good time
in Canada. To be honest, I was worried about traveling so
far from home whilst being pregnant but all my worries were
completely unfounded. Big-P's family spoiled us rotten and
everyone went out of their way to show us a really good time.
Holiday Highlights: getting
lost in the woods, seeing spiderman and about
a boy (which was great and now I want the soundtrack),
family parties, holidaying by a lake, catching snowflakes
(in May!), making home movies, baby clothes sales, peanut
butter and chocolate, Big-P feeling the baby kick for the
first time, shopping (indulge,
delicious carrot cake, and realising that all of Big-P's nephews
and nieces are now technically my nephews and and nieces too,
and how amazing and funny and talented they all are.
On the bad side, both the
flights to and from were nothing short of hellish. I can't
believe how many people they cram into those tiny little planes.
I was seething with jealousy each time we boarded a new flight
and walked past the huge sofa-like first class seats to get
to our crappy little seats at the back of the plane. Knee
room is a thing of the past on international flights. The
number of times we had body scans, our bags searched, had
to turn on our cameras to prove they weren't bombs was ridiculous.
Even when setting down in Hawaii for one hour in the middle
of the night to refuel we had to go through the rigmarole
of US customs.
Now it's back to life-as-I-know-it;
client emails, house hunting and working out what to cook
for dinner (delicious and nutritious and easy? hmmm).
