perkier: Yeah, renting's OK in NZ. And we know our landlord, which helps. I don't know if woolly nightshade is dangerous, but it's an invasive pest. We have deadly nightshade in profusion as well....

Hmm, let's see. Probably good for me to get it written out, actually! They're not all baby-related things precisely, just stuff that'd be easier to do without a baby in tow (and/or stuff with a...

I'm not in absolute agony with this pregnancy yet, but I can see it coming. :p I can't eat late at night or I get heartburn; I sometimes get it when I bend over too. With my last pregnancy it was a...

Hokkaido's Japan's second-largest island. Hokkaido bread was invented there. It's a very enriched, yeasted bread, which is extremely fluffy and cottony and pillowy. That's partly because of all the...

Ha! Yes, erm, maybe not. You don't fancy Benedict instead? My nephew's called that.

We must have the same EDD - I'm 24 weeks tomorrow too! It really boggles my mind that they could be viable at this age - I mean, they're still so tiny and birth is SO far away! I just can't imagine...

Hrmm... I was brave enough to point out to a waitress a few weeks back that our 'warmed olives' weren't warm. I usually wouldn't have, and I felt bad, but it wasn't like they were lukewarm - they...

My cousin's middle name is Harrison - named after Harrison Ford. I like the name. Doesn't sound at all trashy to me, but I live in NZ, so we probably have different cultural mores about names here.

I didn't love labouring in water either. It was odd; I expected to, because so many people on MDC absolutely swear by water-birth. And the research is good. But for me... well, before I got in the...

I had to look up 'golden birthday' - never heard that one before! DD and DS were both born on the 17th of their months, so we have a way to go there. :)

Fair warning, if you loved the book you might hate the movies.

My ideal Valentine's Day gift would be the $2000 sewing machine I've been wanting for ages. :p Or, you know, a trip to England. How...

I've never done antenatal classes or joined a group or anything, but I did Hypnobabies last time. I'll do it again, but I think I'll start a little later in the pregnancy this time. There's only so...

Yeah, I loathe 'em; but to be fair, most of the other baby-shower guests seemed to get a kick out of them. Unless they were all just being polite. I dunno.
