Isabelle gets given fruit or carrots for school snack. She says they're just whole carrots, which they eat as they come!

Mine seem to have shrunk their repertoire of 'acceptable' meals (all my doing, I'm sure!), but I'm determined to get them eating more again. They'll eat vegetables, but have also become rather fond of the chicken chunks in breadcrumbs - which isabelle insists on calling chicken goujons (I just know we're going to feature on the 'overheard in waitrose' website soon!!) - and fish finger type meals. The small ones eat a huge range of stuff at nursery so I know they will...I just need to find the energy to make different stuff at home.

Hope your back is feeling better soon Caro, and glad work went ok. My appraisal is coming up so I'm also on the cpd point trail - we have a requirement to get 50 points (equals 50 hours) per year, and it's hard to do without spending money on it!

Caro - my cpd was similar when I was on mat leave, and we have a limit on what we can do online as 'distance learning', but I think I'm almost there for this year!

My friend made a good soup which I've found the recipe for online - delia smith chilli and chick pea. I added onions and peppers when I made it, and didn't have any coriander, but it tasted great when she made it the proper way! I usually make soup exactly the same way as you - veg, lentils, stock, and blend!

Husband is out cycling and I'm watching a bbc programme on birth...lotus birth anyone?!! I cannot imagine carrying around a placenta, still attached to the baby, for up to 9 days. This woman has just admitted that it smelled disgusting last time, and she's planning the same thing again - why?! The next one is turning her placenta into a smoothie. Ugh.

I hope I haven't offended any secret placenta-smoothie drinkers!!

I can't watch babies being born without wanting another. I actually loved the deliveries, and would dearly love to do it again, but I'm just not sure we need another baby (or child!). O is just getting to that easier stage where she can walk, talk and sometimes be sensible!

I had some bleeding after Isabelle was born (from a tear I think, rather than anything more worrying!) but they were twitched about it with both the next ones and wanted the placenta out ASAP - even though they were both quick, uneventful labours with one born in the pool and one born in our bedroom!

Quite apart from anything else, can you imagine coping with the faff of lugging around a rotten placenta as well as having a newborn?!

Caro - I hope your friend is ok, that sounds like a really rough ride.

I am awake and waiting for my husband to get home from his bike ride/pub visit. Not because I'm worried about him, but because if I go to sleep and he then wake me up (which he would!), it drives me crazy and means I then spend hours awake! One of the guys he rides with just automatically goes to the spare room on bike ride nights, and one of them sleeps on the sofa - mine obviously isn't well trained enough!
