I did it! I ran round Edinburgh today, managing to come a heady 2379th (out of just over 6000 runners though...) The weather was not kind, but the worst rain was just before the start with it brightening up during. I am proud to be able to say I beat 4 Smurfs, but a bit embarrassed to have been beaten by Tweety Pie and Sylvester...
Kit is now 3 weeks and 3 days old and developing a personality day by day. He had a hearing test the other day. It used to be that at 8 months someone would shake a rattle and see if baby looks round. Now at one day old they strap electrodes to their heads and necks before playing a series of clicks though an earphone. He only got a 50% reading for his right ear after he was born, so this was the follow up visit - and we are 100% auditory! It must have just been birth muck.....
We took Kit into Napier to show him off on Thursday - yet more nice people being friendly and very generous to the boy! He even got an astrology reading given to him with the warning that the read lines stood for confict...hmmm, there were a few too many of them if you ask me, so we'll either need to rub them out or destroy Venus rising.
On Friday we took him for a walk round the Botanic Gardens. This is something that Lorna has been planning for a long time,part of her vision of motherhood. It was a beautiful day and the place was packed out with other prams...pram rage! I'll we welding some steel plates to ours for next time.
Neil, Janice and Cameron came to visit today to meet Kit - and he made Cameron's day by peeing all over Lorna's top - ha ha!
I go back to work tomorrow...boo...but I will be beginning my "cycling to work" stint all being well. Save money, get fit. That's the plan, anyway. I've done a practice run to Queensferry and can get there in about 40 minutes; of course I must remember there's a return journey to be done each evening.
Went on a bike(motor) run yesterday with Mike and Colin. Had a brilliant time, headed up to Braemar for lunch and avoided all the threatened rainshowers. Sadly Kevin didn't avoid the not-forecasted oil showers, meaning he and Claire couldn't join us.
Lorna begins her first real "by herself during the week" time tomorrow but I know she'll cope.
