On Friday I was working from home but C had the day off due to a local bank holiday. At some point he took the bichin out for a walk and when he came back he told me how two older ladies came to him to compliment him with the amazing thing he was doing. So I asked him what amazing thing he was doing to attract the attention of random ladies on the street.
Last week me and my sisters went to get a small tattoo, something we have talked about for years but never really put into action and now that life recently gave us another sign that it can be over before you know it we decided to go for it. Although I am super happy with the result I did have a small (understatement) eye-opener in the tattoo shop when we were trying to decide where to put it.
Hate to break it to all the pregnant ladies but from the moment you have delivered that baby the attention will shift completely away from you. Especially (first-time) grandparents will go from all the attention in the world for the pregnant daughter (-in-law) to “thank you very much, you have done your job, our grandchild is here now, you are dismissed”.

When you´re living abroad, away from your family, travelling and flying with a baby usually happens quite a bit earlier than you would probably normally do. If on top of that someone of your family back at home is very sick, then the baby might become the youngest frequent flyer the airline has had so far. So yes, I can say I am already a real pro in flying and travelling with a baby.
When I moved to Spain it took me quite some getting used to the working hours, especially after having worked in Denmark and Germany right before moving here it felt like I suddenly had these never-ending days. The concept of 9to5 working hours is completely unknown (5? That´s when you just sat down after lunch again) and it would be more something like 9.30to8 or something.
