Tool User 2

Callum has worked out how to open the child-proof locks on all of the cupboards. I am now locked into the sort of security patch / break / patch cycle that Microsoft administrators must enjoy living. Previously, he had discovered that pulling really hard would get the sweetie cupboard open, but now he's found that the sweetie cupboard is oriented one way, and the biscuit cupboard is oriented another, and he just has to slide it open and press to make sure the latch doesn't engage.

The fittings are oriented at 90° more due to my ineptitude at figuring out how to install them without any instrucions, rather than any conscious effort to prevent them spotting any usage patterns.

Connor's noticed how to use Callum's toilet step to stand on and reach stuff. This currently equates to emptying the cutlery drawer when he can! This is a bit earlier than Callum started to do this, but then Callum didn't have the step until we started weaning him off the potty, which would have been when he was 2 1/2 or so.

Where's Baby?

(to be said in a thick Yorkshire accent - I'm teaching Callum Northern).

Had the twelve week scan today - all looks fine at this stage. Exciting, and I can announce it to the world, both here and in publishing ages old drafts.

So here's a little ego experiment for me. I'm not sure how many of my mates read this blog - some have asked about it.

I'm also curious as to how many are au fait with Atom and RSS. Well OK, I don't expect them to be that au fait with RFC 4287, but they maybe have come across the general concept. Plus I'm tight (did I mention I'm from Yorkshire?) and want them all to ring me rather than the other way round!
