Dawn at 10 weeks

We got up early and watched the last half of a stunning win. Well, a draw-win thing, I'm still coming to grips with soccer rules (offside rule anyone?).

I've hardly posted about the poppet because nothing has happened. It feels like the eye of the storm; past the initial uncertainty and disbelief, but still in the danger zone with our first scan a fortnight away.

Beloved isn't showing any notable signs yet, despite complaining about being fat most waking moments. I actually want her to get more of a belly so I have something tangible to put my hands on. It still doesn't seem completely real.

I have taken up Tai Chi to ease the stress of work, because I will be no use to my child if I am allowing life's trivialities to get to me- more important things are at stake. Tai Chi for beginners is running at Northcote Uniting Church for the next 8 weeks, Tuesday nights from 7.30pm if anyone wants to join. I know there are a few fellow Nortocastrians who pass through here...

The sun is just below the horizon. I'm running up All Nations Hill for a better view. Top of the morning to y'all...

You got a ways to go yet. Certainly enough time to get your head around the offside rule.

Short version: there needs to be two opposing players (including the goalie) level with or ahead of you when you get the ball. The point is so there isn't someone just lurking at the goal all the time. If that doesn't make any sense, knock yourself out with this.

Bugger Tai Chi. I prefer Chai Tea.

There's an old joke in England, that you know you have a girlfriend that is committed to you if she understands the offside rule.

By this completely arbitrary form of measurement, you'd be a crap girlfriend

You might want to flirt with the eternally blogsexy Zoe then... although she is rather partnered!
