CM you've spent money on it now so you HAVE to use it....rather you than me though!

Pip now is probably not the time to tell you I was 14 days overdue with no 2.........and I tried all the tricks in the book and nothing worked.  So just sit back, relax and it will happen in its own time

Brookie - Hope you dont mind me asking this...quick q for you re baby names, it looks like you have an Isaac? Assuming I am right...  It's our fav name but a good friend just called her son Isaac, born a few weeks ago.  Do you know many Isaacs?  I love the name and it doesn't look like it's too popular on the charts, but i dont know many people with little boys so not really sure how popular it is.  I am not after something really unique, (our daughter is called Georgia which also goes quite nicely with Isaac.  My OH wanted Elijah but doesnt go well with Georgia).  I quite like being Pip/Philippa, there are a some of us around but not loads.  Oh and good luck on Sunday with the race and logistics

One of the boys in my baby group 1st time round was an Isaac -  he is Jewish so now whenever I hear the name I assume the parents are Jewish!  Half the mums in my baby group were Jewish and between them they now have 4 boys called Isaac, Ira, Aron and Noah.

Do you know you're having a boy?

I now have a sore quad.....argh!  Did my lunch time run at work yesterday and my right quad hurt every step I took.  I did eventually give up but not as fast as I should have done.  Was meant to do 5x1 mile reps with recovery in between and I quit after 3......So now it hurts to walk up and down stairs, and I have just put a self made compression bandage on using vet bandages and it actually feels much better - but I have a feeling it may be a bit tight so might loosen it in a bit.

I know an Elijah too - his parents are devout Baptists so again I associate the name with a particular religion!

27/02/2014 at 17:00

Yes, it's a boy!  Thanks for the feedback.  I had never thought of Isaac as a Jewish name but it makes sense.

Carovet - sorry about the quad.  Do you have a foam roller?  If so, it might help to get on it.  I hope it passes quickly.

CC - I love the name Scarlett.  It's funny, loads of the names that I always loved, even from years ago, ended up being the most popular ones.  I guess we aren't as unique as we think   Hope the osteo appt worked its magic.

I'm definitely not as unique as I thought (Simon blo*dy Cowelll!)

I think Elijah and Georgia work fine.  A friend of my has 4 girls, and wanted them all to the  'a' at the end so they are Sophia, Olivia, Daniella and Gabriella!  We didn't know Eric was a boy, but we had picked the name before he arrived, and it definitely suits him.

And indeed - if you like it, go with it!

I do have a foam roller, but I feel it is bruised and battered enough and that foam rolling is making it worse not better for the time being.......

Happy b day to Kit, Martha, Ellen, anyone else.....and also good luck Brookie for the wk end.

Well J hasn't done any more squitting since this morning and is fine so we think tomorrow is back on again. Phew.

Ellen and I have been to Wookey hole today and it was every bit as awful as I remember. Sooo tacky. E spent 2 whole hours in soft play with some older kids who came from about 5 miles from us. How typical is that?!

Brookie - good luck for Sunday. And pip - stay sane. At least it isn't hot at the moment!!

Can't believe my baby is 5 tomorrow. She has planned a midnight feast. She has taken a bowl of leftover sweets and chocolate upstairs in a bowl and put it by my bed. She is coming through at midnight to wake me up so we can have a feast. I can't wait lol!!!
27/02/2014 at 18:04
Oh and I wanted Isaac for E if she was a boy. But surname is Howson. Say Isaac Howson repeatedly and you will see why we couldn't have it. Also Ike Howson gives us same problem.

Owie Caro. Hope it's better soon. 

OMG You Tube is incredible, watched the first couple of episodes of hotel Babylon on iPad earlier, then for some reason Rentaghost, what a blast from the past. Suggestions gratefully accepted for anything else to try as am bored again now. Still not braved any more than sips of water but Mr TT coming home soon so will get him to get me a pedialyte ice pop out of the freezer. 

27/02/2014 at 18:17

Cross post CM, how sad WH is now so tacky. Was good in my day. My friend's dad was a part owner. Glad J better now. Now have ice pop and it's lovely. Probably a bit sugary for my low carb diet but essential for hydration. 

27/02/2014 at 21:47

Hope you are feeling better TTid. And also Caro and your quad. Gah. 

It is so much easier with just one child. E in bed, lights out at 7pm. Have spent the last 3hrs blowing up balloons, baking birthday cakes etc. and had Asda delivery also as having party on sat night for E and friends at home and out all day tomorrow and Saturday so no chance for shopping. The bloke who delivered was so Irish and blue eyed. I didnt want to let him go! I came over all stupid and told him the crappy caterpillar cake was a backup in case mine failed. It was but will get used tomorrow to take to restaurant as tokeN birthday cake which no one will eat. Mine was a success fortunately. He then justified being an Asda delivery driver saying he did a degree over here in mechanical engineering 20yrs ago and never went back. Do you think if I book the same slot next week he will bring me my shopping again lol

27/02/2014 at 22:37

ohhhh CM - romance over a caterpillar cake .......


28/02/2014 at 00:39

Or just ogling! Hmmm would certainly make home delivery more interesting!


28/02/2014 at 09:12

LOL CM! Happy birthday to E too. We must like the same names. E was on my list for a girl if we had one. (& may yet if I manage to persuade hubby!! another blue one would be fine too tho....)

pip - will post properly later - never got my "me" time on computer y'day so still on phone.... Go for it with Isaac!! Sounds fab with Georgia! Also, I think if one of my good friends had called her baby Isaac before mine was born, i would actually think it was kinda cool we'd called our kids the same thing! Would be possibly more of an issue if it was someone I didn't like..... But then I probably wouldn't care anyway....

funnily enough I knew no ethans or isaacs when in london. I'd heard of other kids called that but didn't know anyone personally. Then we moved to oxfordshire and come across a few of both! There will be one other Ethan on his schook year and there is another Isaac at one of the playgroupa we go to and another at church. But I was one of 5 girls with the same name in my class so I guess I'm used to it!! It's popular but less so probably than some other "top 10" names. Agree with everyone else that if you like it- go for it! We have a couple of middle nAmes for each boy too so they can always pick another if they like when they are older!!

I can safely say that Kit is the only Kit in his school and to date I have not come across any other children named Kit.  Hubby and I had come up with a few names when I was pregnant but nothing either of us was sold on.  Then I happened to be reading a crime novel and the central character was called Kit.  I really liked it and mentioned it to hubby and (amazingly) he was also enthusiastic about it.  When Kit was delivered by c-section I apparently told hubby point-blank we were calling him Kit (I don't remember this; must have been all the drugs!)  I like it because it's quite unusual but not weird or outlandish, it can't be shortened and it's easy to spell.  Got a bit worried when Sophie Ellis Bextor named her second child Kit but I guess she's not enough of a celebrity to spark a whole following of baby Kits!  His middle name is Thomas so a more ordinary name - I guess if he ever decided he didn't like the name Kit he could use that instead.

Boo to the quad Caro - but don't panic.  You still have a week before your half.

Happy birthday to Martha and Ellen - and lol CM at ASDA delivery guy!

Thanks for all the FB wishes for Kit yesterday - he had a lovely day.  As well as presents he ended up with £60 of Toys R Us vouchers (to add to the £25 he has still from Christmas) so there will be a few shopping trips spread across the year!  I usually let him spend a few vouchers each school holiday - that way, as his birthday is early in the year, it breaks up the time between his birthday and Christmas. Looking forward to The LEGO Movie tomorrow!

One of the actors in game of thrones is called Kit. He's quite handsome too ( although probably waaaay too young for me!)

Thumbs up to dreamy Asda delivery man, I had a gorgeous electrician helped fit my new boiler last yr, love child of Callum Best and Jude Law with striking light blue eyes, made my week

Thumbs dwn to sore quads ( ice, ice, I've, anti-inflammatory and more ice then get that foam roller on it and a tennis ball ), feeling ill, waiting for baby to arrive.

I love old bible names for boys but had two girls so never got to use them. Although Camryn's middle name is Eve.

* ice not I've
28/02/2014 at 13:24

Minks you're not supposed to say that, as that makes me think 'maybe I can still do it......'  I just don't want to do it and end up longterm broken again!

I am fairly sure Matilda is the only Matilda in the school - don't know any local ones that's for sure.
