naming of parts

We have spent some of today playing hookey and visiting a friend for a reiki treatment each. We only had to stop by the side of the road once for me to almost be sick, which was nice.

Our friend (*waves, happily*) thinks that I am having a little girl and says she thinks she'll be born on 16th September. Predictions are no good unless you record them, so remember, and we'll wait and see.

We've decided that if it IS a girl, we will call her Eglantine Anne Cressida, which we can then shorten handily to Egg An' Cress.

Then we went to Sainsburys for lunch, I had scampi and chips and wasn't sick, we did some supermarket-type stocking-up against-our-principles-but-time-is-short shopping; went to Homebase and bought a pickaxe handle and a pot of red paint for one wall of the office and came home.

THEN, I was sick.

  1. No - aim for 20th Sept then baby can share a birthday with me (and Sophia Loren!)

    Maybe you were sick this time becuse of shopping!

  3. I think Egg An'Cress would be a dandy name! (Of course, I'm sure the girl who was two years behind me in high school, whose parents thought that, with a last name like Christie, it would be dandy to name their bundle of joy Agatha, would disagree)

    But it is a parent's duty to toughen up their offspring for the slings and arrows, yadda yadda yadda...

  7. Sorry, I haven't been here for ages but I'm so delighted to read about the baby news. If it's a girl please don't call it Eveline, which is my first name and the bane of my life!

  9. So if you get pigeon pair twins, will he be Hamlet Andrew Egbert?

    My mother told me -hand on heart- that she was at school with a girl called Wylde, surname Rose. Sadly, when she married she changed her surname to Bull.

  11. actually used to get extremely angry at people who presumed to tell me what sex our child would be. Even when you tell people "We don't care, and don't want to know anyway" - and yet still they insisted on giving there ill informed opinions.

    One supposedly 'spiritual' person insisted that we would be having a girl. 'I don't care...' I said. 'Well, it'll be a girl anyway.' She replied in that 'you don't believe in God but he believes in you' kind of voice.

    Milo is not a girl.

    Would you think me petty if I went round her house to confront her with that information?

  13. I have a friend who swears me met a womanonce called 'Ophelia Ball'.

    Keep going for the Reiki!!! I occasionally do and teach Reiki, and have been into it for about 12 years now, and have seen some really wild things happen. It's amazing.

  15. If it's September 7, the baby will share a birthday with me, Chrissie Hynde, and Queen Elizabeth I (and some other people, too, I'm sure). And possibly my sister-in-law's first child.
