DiD, do you still need things? That last box didn't go out to you. I've been so damn sick and weak and miserable... guess this baby is sticking.

Lucius has grown a LOT in 2 weeks and is starting to fit into the size small diapers and covers and the 0-3 months clothes. Hang onto what you've got for your new babe.

I have driven past his house! On an outing to a very windy beach (as they are in England). Norway at least has the advantage of warm summers, and less wind and rain!

Hurrah! Congratulations! (a bit late) And so cute!

Well, I'm not going to England yet, but we're getting a visitor from England next weekend, in the form of my brother-in-law. By the looks of it he will get to see some REAL snow, not the half-inch that closed England down a couple of weeks ago.

I must remember to remind him to bring salt and vinegar crisps!

We spent our honeymoon in England and Scotland, and we've wanted to go back ever since. Now when we do, we'll take our daughter which will be even more fun.

You know it's so funny, over here DD was so lethargic, couldn't even open her eyes, had strange muscle twitches like sezuires, all they could tell us was she wasn't getting enough BM, well her wee was clear so I knew better than that

they never did a single test

We now know it was from super low calcium and we're pretty damn lucky nothing happened to her.

I guess you can't win, too many tests or not enough. I am shocked they did all those LP's though.

Hope things are back to normal soon!

Well it wasn't nothing but at least it was a treatable infection.

I think the main reason they did so many lumbar punctures is because if he'd had meningitis that would be the only way to detect it. He still has all these little scabs on his back from the needle pokes and it makes me so sad.

I meant nothing as in it wasn't something serious

Hopefully those will heal since he's so young, mine never did but I was older, just a heads up incase they don't disappear

Where are the new pics????

DiD- How scary!

I'll join this tribe. I lived in England for 2 yrs and I miss my friends there. I also miss Glastonbury. That's where I'd go back to (along with London) if I was able to vacation there.

Meanwhile I haven't been in England, but my brother-in-law who lives in England has been here over the weekend!

A few things he said made me re-think whether I actually want to live there, though. Starting school at four... not as many parks and playgrounds as here... less of an out-of-doors culture for kids... less child-friendly in general, he says.

But there's still the pies, cheap take-away curries, and not least: salt'n vinegar crisps! :

And we have been invited over for this summer! That will be fun!
