I really don't get it. We left England some time ago, way back in September, just as all the old people started to complain of the encroaching winter. I would meet them in the street, five jumpers and a M&S cardigan, shivering and filling out forms for extra coal or something. Some fly here to Malta and avoid the English winter totally. It's cheap and the temperature rarely drops belown10°C, or thereabouts. To my amazement, I saw about a dozen OAP's swimming in the sea. No wetsuits, no Lard and no Cardigans. This got me thinking. Isn't it always the more mature that break the ice and swim in the Serpentine? This would be hazardous enough, but in the middle of winter? So what is it. Hot, Cold or not sure? I'm not chicken, but I think I'll wait a while before I take a dunk!

TheO is developing well. His lungs at the moment are his best assets, able to complete a 40 second winge in one breath. He is also able to smile for a similar length of time. Cuts you right to 'art it does! He has become very aware of his surroundings and bright objects around him (like his mum!) and I swear he says “Hello' to me. Stares me right in the eyes and say's it. I found that singing him the “Hokey Cokey” is the best way to calm him down, putting his left leg in, his left leg out, seems to take his mind of things. Overall, things are progressing very well, but I do miss a good night down the local, eh!



Smile, and the world smiles with you!
