My life in facts - the top ten

1. Finally, at 13 weeks, baby Martini is going through from 10.30pm until about 7am. Quick - book the baby sitter! (In fact, we've already booked the baby sitter. It's a meal out for the grown-ups on Saturday night. No high chairs, bibs or sippy cups in sight. Bliss.)


2. My short term contract finishes on Friday. I've absolutely loved working, but am also looking forward to some time off again. Nothing like having to get up in the morning that makes you realise you've taken 'Homes Under the Hammer' for granted.


3. Yesterday, on the way home on the bus, I sat next to Ashley from Michel Roux's Service. That's just the way I roll. And, if you're wondering, he really does sound like that in real life.


4. My Boris Bike key finally arrived today. Needless to say obtaining that was not a pain free experience, but I won't bore you with the details. I have to say, providing you're not relying on trying to use the terminals (a 'casual' user obviously = loser), the scheme is absolutely brilliant. 


5. Elder Martini's cough has returned. Another trip to the doctor ensued. More drugs have been prescribed. More joy for bedtime.


6. Mr. Martini and I have discovered Mad Men. That's the evenings sorted for the next month then.


7. I have discovered Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. TV gold. 


8. Plans are afoot for my sister's wedding in New York in April. I'm not sure what dress I'm going to wear yet - there are some good options in Coast. I've been more interested in the kids clothes to be honest. Plus I'm also slightly concerned about the logistics of travelling with two children. Is it really worth taking two pushchairs? Car seats? The list goes on...


9. I accidentally discovered, in an email I fished out of my junk mail, the reading list for my MSc course that starts in September. Not a very studious start. I'd also forgotten that text books apparently need to cost £70 for no reason whatsoever. Let's hope that LSE has a second hand book shop.


10. Did I mention that Baby Martini is sleeping through the night?
