Laura is rapidly heading for her first birthday. That means we’re preparing for an invasion of the small, and moving all breakable objects further out of reach. Expect chaos and mahem – will therefore have a late start and then head off to work to avoid the ensuing chaos of the party! As Laura is now table surfing quite happily, I suspect that whatever gifts we put out will be identified and tracked down in ultra-quick time. Anything new in the house is considered fair game, especially if expensive, black or electrical. Brightly coloured plastic just doesn’t cut it with the modern baby I’m afraid.
