I couldn’t believe it. After one of the wettest July I can remember (probably another record breaker – June was), the first day of summer happened to coincide with our housewarming tea party. I also couldn’t believe the turnout. We never had huge numbers of people to our parties back at the old house, but perhaps like goldfish, the crowd grew to fit the space available. There were guests from my old job, my new job, my old church, my new church, Italian class, parenting class, and three houses in a row of neighbours, all of whom were lovely. Vashti was amazing, she must be an extrovert because she’s much happier with lots of people around. But we couldn’t do it without our good friends Lou, Lucy, Jane and Johnathan who helped us bake cakes and generally cope with fifty or so guests and a three month baby. Good work Katie.
The little muncher is getting bigger (if not as quickly as the fussy health visitors would like), and has her first tooth on its way. This leads to: lots of dribble; funny faces as she munches her lips; and a little bit of crying, but thankfully not too much. She’s going to look peculiar with only one tooth, I’m quite looking forward to that.
