Babeling: 10 days overdue

Not ‘haven’t you had the baby yet?’ or ‘When’s that baby coming out?’ It’s always ‘You still here, then?’

Where else should I be? Do people mean in hospital? I don’t think so. I’ve decided it’s a more mysterious question than that. I might only be in hospital for a few hours and then home again with the baby, but when I came back I wouldn’t be ‘here’. I’d be ‘there’. The Other Side.

Therefore I am all set for a journey, with my disposable pants and nursing pads tied up in a red and white spotted handkerchief on the end of a stick. I am off to the land of Mother of Two and not expected to return.

I hope they have blogging there.
