Waiting for Clare

The thing that I hate most about hospitals is the incessant waiting. We’ve been here since 8.30pm and we finally made it into the labour ward. Well at Joan made it. I’m still waiting outside. I must say after seeing all the pain she endured so far that I am very proud to have such […]

The Plug

Good news, Joan’s mucus plug came out this morning! Let’s hope the baby will be next 🙂

The Criminals

This is so irritating that I don’t even know where to begin. I brought the dogs down for their walk this evening, and I decided to do some training revision with Thunder so that he wouldn’t embarrass us the next time we go for class. To ensure that my other little dog Dinky didn’t get […]

I sure love my Doggy :)

I absolutely love this picture that Joan took yesterday. Me and my Doggy 🙂 Everytime I look at him, I’m amazed at how big he’s grown since we got him as a little puppy. In fact, both our doggies have made great improvements and we’re soooo proud of them. Come to think of it, the […]

Nope, this isn’t our kid

It’s Monday morning, and Clare still isn’t ready to face the real world… a bit like me I guess 🙂 To get our baby fix, we took pictures of Joan’s cousin’s 6 month old daughter Kyra yesterday. I can’t wait to take pictures of my own daughter!!!


Still no sign of the baby coming out… 🙁

Honey, I think the Warranty is Over

So this is it. The big Three-O. Actually I think it’s quite a good thing that Clare is on the way and that I’m way more excited about her birth than I am about my aging body. I always thought that turning 30 was a time to start doing a stocktake of your life and […]

Doggy Boot Camp

It’s 4 weeks into Thunder’s Doggy Boot Camp and we’re beginning to see results. He’s able to walk by my side (not in front, not behind, not off to the sides, but AT MY SIDE!) and sit automatically when I stop walking. Joan took some pictures of him at last week’s session. Me and my […]

Shedding Light

Ok I finally have some time on my hands to take a closer look at Pope Benedict’s controversial lecture at the University of Regensburg on Tuesday, 12 September 2006. It’s not my intention to defend the Pope on blind faith alone. All I ask is that if you have an open mind, go and read […]
