Thinking Ahead


Goodness, I havent even got the Christmas tree up and already I am getting hints for presents! A bit much, don’t you think?

Last year, at least I managed to get the decorations up in November. This year, with all my work and other responsibilities, I might not be able to get it up late November. But already hint dropping has begun.

No, it’s not an ipod. That would be too costly. Just Mp3 players which dont cost an arm or a leg. I’d need to do some research though. Just to get an idea of range, availability, you know.

But honestly, it’s OCTOBER!!!


A Celebration!


A friend just gave birth! What joy! They now have two sons as well, and they are also 21 months apart, like ours are.

What’s more, their second son is also named the same as ours.

AND guess what! They ALSO got a present for the older son saying that it was from the younger one, to help with the bonding. Cool!

I told them that they should celebrate. That made me think about how people celebrate special occasions such as this. Go get drunk! Shout out the news! Yes, even get out the cigars!

Hmmm I suppose getting a bottle of wine is easy enough. Champagne too!

Broadcasting the news is easy these days with the internet and networking sites.

How about cigar? I guess some would look for cigars online to see what there was. But you would have to order them early. Yes a bit of planning would be needed…. but what fun it would be to celebrate a new life!
