Thanks for those magic car fairies out there scouting the market for my ideal model. Considering that I keep falling for cars just a little outside my budget, I have decided to take a wait and see approach for the moment, perhaps the right thing will magically fall into my lap.

I took Mr R baby goods shopping yesterday - mostly so he would get an idea of what he was in for. Just about all of our friends have kids, and yet Mr R lives in a fog regarding the amount of, well, stuff, that you can get for kids. I think he thought pram shopping would be a 5 minute choice between two models and maybe a couple of colours. Someone asked him a couple of weeks ago if we had bought any furniture, and he replied with a puzzled expression that we had just bought a new TV cabinet. He really has very little idea. So, I gingerly held his hand as we stepped into one of those Baby Superstores, and although he nearly fainted, he did ok on the whole. We didn't actually buy anything, but after a confusing demonstration on how to fold up prams (I don't think I will ever get it!), and why the Bugaboo is the best and fully worth $1400 (ahem - their words, not mine), at least now he has an idea of what we (and the bank balance) are up for. It also helps us now to look out for potential bargains on ebay in the trading post.

And something light for a Monday - see if you can spot the lie..
Challenged by the spunky and tummy growing Rae:

Three things you don’t like about your self: My bossy nature, my inability to take criticism, my feet

Three of your favorite songs: Sheesh - thats hard - these change about every 5 minutes. "Catch my Disease" (Ben Lee - this whole album is my number 1 at the moment); "The Luckiest" (Ben Folds - my goodness this makes me cry cry cry); "The Scientist" (Coldplay - also makes me bawl) I am sensing some hormonally driven choices here!
