Bill is a silly and is an exhausted bleary husband, but it’s his own fault because he keeps staying up really late, mainly playing around on the computer, nothing to do with Sam at all. Last night though was even worse as he stayed up til almost five o’clock in the morning working on a Flash game for his job. He promised that he’d stay at home today and work from the home computer, but the alarm went off and he got up and stumbled into the office anyway. Thankfully he at least made it home early and spent the afternoon resting up.
It’s been two weeks since Samuel was born now and I felt up to taking him outside in the stroller for the first time this afternoon. I’d been told to take it really easy for the first fortnight as I’m rather stitched up in places I’d rather not think about and had to be careful. I dressed Sam up so that he was covered from head to toe, and of course looked extra especially cute and we put him in his Quinny chariot. This took a little while as it’s been sat waiting in the corner of the room for ages and we’d forgotten how to set it up into baby mode.
All prepared and very excited to take Sam around the neighbourhood we set off down the road. I was pushing the buggy, and Bill had the doglets. We were loving taking Sam out and about. We didn’t get very far though.
As we walked up the street we got pounced on by two loose dogs creating trouble. It was Laina and Reggie. We don’t like Reggie, he’s a mean dog, and of course our dogs freaked out and in the resulting fracas Gingernuts slipped his collar and pegged it. Grrrr.
I ended up taking Sam around the block on my own while Bill jumped into the truck and scoured the neighbourhood for that wretched mutt. What a disaster. Wasn’t so much fun without daddy and the dogs to share the walk.
Picture for Tourniquet – Sam in his Nooblet shirt, thank you mate. 🙂

Okay, Bill’s put Sam to sleep in his bed, time for me to go pass out next to him myself now.
