All Quiet on the Baby Front

Still nothing.

It is like the Phoney War (the bit of the second world war between the invasion of Poland and the invasion of the Low Countries and France, for anyone educated after 1986). We know that a dictator is about to march (well, OK, be carried) into our home and change our lives forever (how long can I keep this analogy going?), but at the moment we're just testing our early warning systems (baby monitor), stocking up with basic foodstuffs (Tesco Finest ready meals) and negotiating lend-lease agreements with a major neutral power (borrowing a travel cot from a friend).

Though I'm still waiting for my government-issue gas mask.
