We’ve been visiting Tom’s family this weekend and we decided to make the most of staying at a house in the centre of town by having a little drink to ourselves. In classic Burgin style, that carried on throughout the day and into the evening.
We drove down on the Friday night to coincide with Leo’s sleeping, our plan didn’t quite work as expected though as the little man decided he wanted to see what was going on once he’d had a couple of hours sleep, and proceeded to play about with us in the lounge until midnight! He then thought 6.30 was the best time to wake up. He then decide last night that he didn’t want to miss out on anything either, but Sue made us go out anyway and he happily played about until we got back in. Another late night at 11 and then he thought 5am was a suitable time to wake up this morning. He came into bed with us and chilled on the pillows with us for about an hour, which was incredibly sweet.
I’m paying the price of painful boobs this morning, it never crossed my mind that drinking in the day meant that I couldn’t give Leo his evening feed and I didn’t have my pump! Hopefully there won’t be any blocked duct payback, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
It’s been really good to see Leo come out of his shell whilst we’ve been here. He’s at that stage now where he’s aware he doesn’t know people so was fairly shy when Sue first spoke to him, he’s not anymore! We really need to start video calling regularly now so that he keeps the familiarity, the issue is that our Internet connection at home is from the dark ages, so we’d have to go into Knutsford and do it over 4g..oh the joys of the countryside.
What was also really good was to have a bit of Tom and me time, whilst we have been out together since Leo came along, we haven’t been out and had a good drink together. Whilst that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s what Tom and I used to do constantly so it was great to have a little mooch back into that for a few hours.
