The Bonus Hour

It was a pleasure to meet my new nephew. Obviously I'm a little biased but he is absolutely gorgeous. His main tricks are; feeding, crying, poohing and giggling. He's a real wee smiler and he's rather fond of classical guitar music. This was the longest time I've spent in any baby's company and, well, it certainly didn't put me off. In fact, it made me a little broody (like I wasn't broody already!).

Little J looks a lot like his mummy. I know this because I used to look at all of our baby photos. I am sure as he grows older he will resemble his father's features too but I think we tend to see our own genes in babies because they are more familiar to us. When I was a baby I only looked like one member of our family and that was a great aunt on my dad's side. It might just have been a coincidence though and mum even said recently she wonders if they gave her the right baby at the hospital. She's stuck with me now though!

Music has been going strong recently. We all feel like we're learning. I am learning less technical, musical instrument stuff than the boys but I am learning to be more confident and less ashamed of my creative pursuits. I remember the days when I tried to play in front of people and my throat would close over. I am less concerned about being perfect and more concerned with singing my heart out because it just feels so damn good. Blogger doesn't give me the option to upload videos or I would share one but, hey, the rate we're going you'll be able to see the GCDC's at the Royal Albert Hall in 2016 ;)

Oh, and I was pleased about the bonus hour this weekend. Not as pleased as I'll be next March when we're minus an hour but I have to see the silver lining at the minute.

I am not a fan of Babies I prefer it once they talk and will discuss a bit of Einstein and the like. Strangely the older I get the closer I get to a life of feeding, crying, poohing and giggling, I think it called the circle of life but I am not that pleased that this is the future we (I) are (am) doomed too.

Keep that music going Miss Hannah it is not only good but music is one of the few things that can create more brain cells and that is always useful.

Hi Rob, they do say that as we get older we revert back to our formative years. I used to think babies were boring too but that was before I learnt the art pretending to know what goes on inside of their heads. I just make the conversation up as I go along. Much like I do with Ziggy.

Wow, I did not know that music created more brain cells. This is fantastic news and now I can reassure myself that after music night, I may have smoked and drank a few brain cells away but new ones are being created. It all balances out! Hoorah!
