Blog neglect or blog holiday?

Ah, one kind reader asked if I am okay, because I haven't posted recently. Yes, I have written many short blog posts in my head...and then kept them there. A case of blog neglect or a blog holiday? I couldn't decide.

I am now in week 20 of pregnancy - a kind of half way point, although March 21st (due date) still seems a long way off. The novelty of the first pregnancy was constantly exciting; second time around I'm feeling more of a warm, mushy gratitude and forward-looking hope.

I don't have any cravings, although tonight I was eating a bowl of Coco Pops* for the first time in years. I was padding about the kitchen with the bowl and I thought, wow, these taste so great, I should sit down to appreciate the cheap chocolate-y naughtiness of this experience.

* (I only had a mini box of Coco Pops in the house as part of my Halloween 'costume' - I wore a necklace made from Kellogg's Variety packs and carried a pretend knife, rustled up from tin-foil and cardboard. What do you mean, what was I? A serial/cereal killer, of course. Ah well, there's always next Halloween.)

Enough waffle. Why don't I post a picture of Mr Hugh, who'll be one this week! Awww.

Cereal Killer - that's great! I love it...and I also love cereal. It's a guilty pleasure. Nothing in the world like a bowl of Lucky Charms or Golden Grahams, though I usually try to stick to healthier stuff!

Aw, Mr. Hugh is so adorable! I can't believe he's already a year old...and still hairless! Good thing his little head is so darn cute.

Congratulations on your second pregnancy! Hope it continues to go as smoothly as the first.
