Cardiff calling

Took Geraint to the clinic today he’s gained 12.5 ozs in 2 weeks. Not bad. I discussed my concerns with my GP, just looking at some milestones info - and notice that 3 month old babies are supposed to be able to lift up their head when lying on their backs!!!! yikes!!!!!

Alun and I have been out for lunch. Very nice to have him all to myself. Had a lovely drive around the Landshipping area. We saw it clearly from the public vantage point on the other side of the water at Picton Point and it looked amazing. We just need to breathe some life into the place.

Spent a couple of weekends in Cardiff and had a real blast. Went down to Penarth for breakfast after picking up Paula on the way through. We went off to Mothercare leaving the boys in town to go to the rugby. Elaina spent the day with her dad. 

In the evening Elaina went off with Tiga to see chart-topping boy band A1at the CIA. I took the bab over to Paula’s to see Judith and of course we discussed Geraint’s condition. Girls very supportive (as ever!) Later I took the boys out to dinner at Alice’s which was packed out as usual (but she still ushered us almost immediately to a table) and then refused to let us pay. I was too tired to argue. Geraint really enjoyed it all.

Following weekend we were in Cardiff again, so that Alun and Gethin could attend the Network Q rally. I motored down with Elaina and stopped off in Swansea to see my colleagues before heading for Cardiff. We went to the Elaina's prep Cathedral School to show off the baby and to pick up some of Elaina’s schoolwork. Headmaster Mr Gray asked us to come back again and even gave me an application form for Geraint. I left Elaina there to come home on the bus after spending the afternoon with her old pals and I did loads of work on the house. I continued the next day and ferried the boys off the train and to the rally. Elaina saw her dad. We’d had a night just Elaina, Geraint and I all cuddled up together and the next day Alun drove us all home. It’s nice going back to the house in Cardiff but I feel my life is in Pembrokeshire now.
