    Yesterday marked 41 weeks of this pregnancy.

    But really it didn’t, because we didn’t make it that far. Instead labour was induced on Thursday night, and our wee button arrived on Friday afternoon.

    Elspeth Nora, 9lb 12oz, gorgeous and cuddly and sleeping on my chest as we speak.

  3. The Engineer and Wife are now The Engineer’s Family. Baby Engineer (aka Elspeth Nora) arrived on Friday at 5:05pm. She is huge (9lb 12oz) and long (54cm) and wonderful.

    We are home now, and very happy.

    When heavily pregnant women are not in touch for a while, people tend to make assumptions.  If you assumed my absence for a couple of days was because I was in hospital meeting the button, you were (unfortunately) wrong.

    I was just on the couch, waiting, wishing, hoping!

    I wish I knew how to replace the ink cartridge

    The letter is sitting on the desk beside my laptop, and every time I see it I smile and giggle.

  7. Almost there! #bump

    These are a few of my favourite things (Brunei edition)

    In the time we’ve been in Brunei, we’ve made a real effort to try lots of different things, and experience as much as we can.  There are still some major gaps (top of my to do list is a visit to classic bakery/kopitiam Chop Jing Chew), but I think we’ve done a reasonable job of trying things out in KB, BSB and Miri.

    So today I thought I’d share a few favourite places to eat.  Here are The…

  10. A weekend (our last together and baby free?)

    A weekend (our last together and baby free?)

    With this baby due pretty soon (it will be born this month, guaranteed!), I have a bit of a one track mind at the moment, so my apologies for those not interested in babies.  You might be sorely disappointed for the next wee while.  I will try to get some Brunei and expat information in there too, but I don’t know about the chances.  The moving basketball attached to my front is pretty hard to…
