Three steps forward...

Hello one and all.
Last night went well.  I didn't stay awake all night, in fact I only woke up once for food.  This is all part of my plan to lull M+D into a false sense of security before I unleash hell.  I did have one  moment when I went really quiet and still and tricked Mum into thinking I wasn't breathing.  She turned on all the lights, woke Dad and me up briefly before Dad reassured her I was alright.  Sorry Mum but apparently many babies and Mums have these moments, so we're are just being normal!

So we all survived the night and now I am writing this blog from a new location.

Yes....I have escaped Tommies and am writing this from home in SE1 with M+D.  The nurses were impressed with their parenting skills so they let me go home with them.  Mum went off home to collect my buggy and car seat (and camera) and trundled them back to SCBU.  Cue strange looks from passers-by as the car seat didn't contain a baby.
The threshold of my new life!
And I slept through it...

M+D were given lots of stuff to bring home with me (oxygen tubing, dressings, formula, drugs, out patient appointments etc...)

We are home now and chaos has not yet ensued but I am just assessing the lay of the land.  Hee hee.
All these cards for ME!!! (Look closely, I'm jumping for joy)

I am sure you will understand if the blog goes a bit quiet for the next few days as I settle in to my new establishment but I will try to keep everyone updated as and when I can.

Love to all and good luck to Will and Kate on their big day!
