Half term break...

Was much needed. Some serious chilling/coffee drinking and Mr C's first road trip went down as planned and all is good.

Returned to Norwich for first time in over a year. It seems to get better the longer I haven't lived there. Not for me the nice 50m pool, not for me the lovely relaxed cafe culture or the cycling friendly bike lanes and the company of hoards of cyclists. Oh no, those things appear once I've left to pastures new :( Having got over that we spent time enjoying some family time and the help of Grannie-Annie. Including getting my annual culture inoculation with a trip to the Sainsbury Centre.

We also spent time scoffing mini-gingerbread-us's... (sad as it is we couldn't bring ourselves to eat mini-gingerbread-Charlie, although I'm not too happy with the idea of it mouldering away either)

Plus we've been testing out the Chariot. How cool is this? Best purchase in ages.

We've done a couple of little runs with it (inc a track session) in jogger mode and a short ride towing it behind the cross bike. So far so brilliant. Charlie seems to be unfazed by it and tends to just fall asleep, his natural reaction to anything outside our house.

He has, however, been spotted with his eyes open, this is a step forward.

Although spontaneous non-fart-related smiling has not been achieved at this time (baby books don't fart-related smiles 'proper' smiles. However, since he's a boy, and boys find farts funny, I think it is a proper smile).

We've also found what we hope to be a great childminder just round the corner. We dropped him off for his first hang out with her this afternoon and got out to ride together for the first time in ages. We'd forgotten how hard and cold it is!
