Decided to go to the fireworks with Stuart tonight leaving sandy with his grandad. Timed it all to perfection, changing sandy for bed at 6.15, feeding him to sleep 6.30 to 7.00 and planning to leave just after 7.00 to make it down to the green before the start at 7.30. He fed well, stirred a bit and a top up took him to 7.05 and we whisked out the door. Arrived at the green with 5 mins to spare, watched the fireworks and were coming up the road at 8.00 and at the front door by 20 past. We stealthily opened the door and listened intently for noises of sandy being awake, perhaps a cry or his grandad talking to him. But no. We edged to the hall and looked upon my dad alone thinking we had made it… Perfection…? ‘It never rains but it pours’ he said revealing that, while sandy had indeed stayed asleep the whole time through masses of fireworks going off, our bloody central heating was buggared again for the second time in three days. But to me it was no big deal. Despite the fact the guy from below us had come up to say we were leaking into this shop, and despite the fact that it was going to cost even more to fix, and despite the fact we won’t have central heating for the next 24 hours at least, I was still left feeling that everything was fine…because sandy was still asleep. That’s what having a baby does to you.
