Sometimes you just don't realise how many blessings you have to count. Whilst relaxing at work today with a cup of tea and a slice of pear cake (the diet went out the window on Lisa's birthday, and frankly never came back in), I was informed that the keyring I received yesterday wasn't just a keyring. Oh no. Apparently you can also insert it into the pound coin slot of a supermarket trolley. Which is obviously fantastic news, because I never like turning up at Lidl with cash in my pocket in case I get mugged. On the downside, it means you have to wander the aisles with your car keys dangling from your trolley, right in front of people from the Whitehawk estate who've just spent their dole money on a half-price chainsaw. Frankly it's asking for trouble. But I'll let you know how I get on.

Basket CaseAnd on the subject of blessings, Lisa saw the lovely Lorraine yesterday, and I'm pleased to say we now have a Moses basket. This is what it looked like six months ago before Lorraine's daughter moved in. To be honest, little Leia was still sleeping in it until a couple of days ago, when Lorraine decided our need was greater than hers, and turfed her out into a cot. Mind you, I've seen the cot and it's worth more than my car, so I don't think she'll mind.

We need to buy a new mattress, and we've been asked to return it if Lorraine produces baby number two, but other than that it's perfect. On the downside, having removed the lining and stuck it in the washing machine, I noticed some kind of small dried spillage in the bottom of the basket, in what can only be described as a worrying shade of brown. Lisa suggested that it might be chocolate, but refused to be the one to taste it. Having spent a good ten minutes pondering how the bodily fluids of a baby could have got past a nappy, a bedsheet and a two-inch thick mattress, I eventually came up with an explanation. Based on past experience, I think I can name the culprit.
