20 Hours Old - Blurred


20 Hours Old - Blurred, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Avenue.

I took this today, the light wasn't too good so it went a bit blurry, but it's ok - it looks a bit old fashioned that way.

Everything's progressing well, and they should be home tomorrow. Just as well, it's very noisy on the maternity ward at visiting times: new grandparents with loud voices, and kids playing in the corridors.

And I've got the week off work, with no hassle and many's the kind word; nice to work for a proper employer with decent managers for the first time in years.

I went to Mothercare earlier to get some vests and sleep-suits; the 'newborn' and 'first' sizes are too big: she needs what they call 'tiny baby'. Cute, eh?

She was electronically tagged soon after birth, which I think is the policy now following that case where some poor woman stole a baby from a maternity hospital a year or two ago. Unfortunately, the tag had gotten covered with that tarry shite newborns produce; Herself took it off to clean it. So what would prevent a baby snatcher doing the same?
