Appreciation... [Nov. 14th, 2005|11:00 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

I have two good friends (both dads) that I call on for dad-related baby advice: one is my boss, Sticks; the other is Phil, lestat75.

Phil phoned me last night from hospital, where he's looking after his son. I'd sent him a message yesterday about feeding patterns, and we chatted for about half an hour about it.

Thanks Phil, I really appreciate it. My heart goes out to you and Karen at this time. You're an inspiration for both me and Caroline.

I also had a phonecall and numerous texts from Sticks over the weekend, even though he was in the Lake District with his family for a wedding.

I'm amazed and blessed that people have the time, even though they have so much going on in their own lives.

Now why can't I be like that? :o)

Naturally I would be honoured, and I'm sure that Phil would be too! :o)

Any timescales for kids, Scott?

First things first, got to get the new house sorted, just round the corner from Karen and Phil actually.

But hopefully in the next 12 to 18 months.. ;)

Is that on the same estate? Caroline and I would love to live there... some of the houses are absolutely fastastic!

We haven't seen you guys since the games night, if I recall correctly... I think we should possibly rectify this...?

Its a brand new development about 2 mins up the road. Its by Strata and they are quite resonable on price too.. ;)


Ours is Plot 3, which is in the top left corner.

And I agree that we should definatley meet up again, Liz and I are hoping to be in the hopuse just before Christmas, so we will be having a proper house warming, consider yourselves duly invited to that. ;)
