Test drive...

While M was taking a well-deserved nap, myself and Finn took the oportunity to take the pram for its first public outing with a Finn inside it. As you can see from this exciting action pose (he's in there somewhere, honest!) the pram is a very racy machine in pillar box red - the kind of hot rod that Clarkson or the Hamster would relish taking for a spin...

So we went for a stroll in East Park, the vast expanse of green grass, watery bits and muddy paths that is, rather handily, just round the corner from our humble abode. I took Finn to see the ducks but, for reasons best known to our week old sleeping and content young 'un, he wasn't the least bit interested:

I took a few pictures as we strolled around but M says they remind her of Weekend At Bernie's. We had planned to go for a coffee in the park's rather nice cafe but it is Closed for Cleaning for a week (that's some intense cleaning, I fear the place might dissolve). Shame, as I was looking forward to taking Finn out of his comfort zone and showing him off to all and sundry for the mandatory "ooohs" and "aaaahs" and "aaaaws" that new babies command. That shall have to wait until the next journey.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all the nice comments, emails, Facebook messages etc and all the traditional paper-based greetings cards that we've received following Finn's arrival. They all mean a lot, are really appreciated and have filled us with a nice warm glow. Actually, no, that's probably another nappy that needs changing.
