I had a lovely family visit today. Once again, we all ended up going to a supermarket. I promise, I do not come from a family that regards it the height of entertainment to visit a supermarket. Except, apparently, I do. And I'm one of them.

We spent most of the time sitting eating and drinking tea, while Nibling watched Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom. It is about Ben, an elf, and Holly, a fairy princess. I know, I know. However...
One of the plot points in this particular episode involved explaining what an 'astrophysicist' does and hunting for a book on astrophysics.

The 'text' on the storybooks, I was amused to see, wasn't garblescribble, but Lorem Ipsum.

My Nibling has an adorable habit, when bought a present, to make sure, on the giver's next visit, to show that she is using and enjoys said present. She doesn't actually say a word about it, just uses it or wears it close to the giver.

I've had my new patient check. I am healthy, half an inch shorter than I used to be and seven pounds less than at my last check. I've also learned that during a breast exam, as well as all the fondling, there's a hokey-cokey element to check no parts of the breast are stuck to the chest wall. I'm a little sad that Pol isn't around to double-check this for me. I am sure he'd be glad to help.

I have been carefully not thinking about it, so I didn't realise how worried I was, deep down, for my middle little sister, until she was safely delivered of her baby this morning at 10:30am, thus avoiding both our birthdays which are around this time of year. I found out by text when I woke up at about 3pm. My brand new nibling weighs about seven and a half pounds (three and a bit kilos?), has a shock of black hair and took twelve hours to arrive even despite a few difficulties (twisted head presentation so a ventousse was needed). Mother and baby are both doing well.

I'll go and see the three of them when I am out of quarantine (I have swine flu, it's much less bad overall than the seasonal flu in March but it's making me terribly wheezy).
