Yesterday, when we went to pick Owen and Cullyn up from school, Hannah and Rebecca held hands and sang all the way there and all the way back. I have no adequate words for how cute this was.

Doug and I sat down to watch episode 4 of Leverage. (And I so love Parker and Hardison)
And then Hannah woke up. As did Rebecca. And then Hannah woke up again. And again.

By the time I'd got both of them back to sleep, Doug had decided to go to bed, which means I've got to wait until tomorrow night to watch the rest of the episode.


We are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it's still quite disheartening - apart from the three nights at Vidukon, I haven't managed to sleep through the night since a month or two before the twins were born. I am TIRED.

(But Leverage! Glee! <3 <3 <3 <3 )

Oh my god.

I'd forgotten how much babies puke.

And there's two of them.

And this whole Nipplegate/Boob-Nazi Icon/LJ Abuse thing? Just makes me want to cry with the huge amounts of stupid on both sides.

You know that you have a good reason for feeling shell-shocked, when you're visited by a seemingly endless stream of medical professionals, who all start along the lines of, "So you were all the excitement yesterday."  They were definitely worth it, though.

I hadn't realised the days activities would include caving and glove puppets )

Well, here's to the bandwagon - My Johari window.

Onto fandom - NCIS peeps, if you haven't already, go read this ficlet, (even though it's in the drabble community, it is not a drabble being far more than 100 words.  Bah!).  A really good character sketch, which made me miss Kate all over again.  It also made me laugh.

Speaking of NCIS, I've been getting back into it after a long absense.  And Probie near enough broke my heart.  Poor little woobie!Tim.  (And I'm also hating Madam Director even more, despite wanting to like her, whereas Ziva who I thought I'd hate for replacing Kate, I really, really like.)

Speaking of Ziva and Kate, I've decided Kate/Ziva is my OTP of choice, despite it being problematic in that Ziva got introduced because Kate got a bullet through the head.  Because just think of the issues between them - Ari, Ari and oh! Ari.  Plus the whole Gibbs is my Boss who is a father figure to me but I really really fancy him. On the plus side I now have lots of plot bunnies for the [ profile] crossovers100.  (I really must type up the fics I've already done for that)

And does anyone know when Doctor Who is going to start airing? I'm guessing around March time, but I don't know for sure.

Oh, and on a non-fandom note - remember my crap consultant? I spoke to my midwife about changing consultants, explaining why and she was behind me totally, saying that she thought he ought to have retired five years ago. (She also agreed with me on waterbirths and said she wished that they were allowed to take twin births at the birth centre).  Anyway she went off to phone the hospital to get me transferred to a different consultant and came back with a huge grin on her face - apparently he retired the week before!

So that probably explains why he was so totally dismissive with us, and we have a new consultant. It's a woman and she is, by all reports, far more progressive. Yay!

I want chocolate, and I want a new consultant.

No, it is not obvious that I will be delivering the twins at the RUH, fuckhead.  I have a legal right to a homebirth, and I have a legal right to type of birth I want, and no, I will not have the birth that your procedure dictates just because it's convienient for you.

And it's considered polite to introduce yourself, and tell me who the woman you've just brought into room with you is.

Also, considering we'd been waiting 2 hours for our appointment, (the last twenty five minutes spent in the consulting room wondering what the fuck was going on) some sort of apology would have been nice. Failing that, some sort of acknowledgement of how long we'd been waiting.

So yeah, so not impressed.
