My friend Natalie had a beautiful baby girl a few days ago. My friend Liz had a baby boy. Young Sureyya and young Freddie are no doubt destined to grow up and fall in love. Fate has decreed it so!
Congratulations to both families – and may your new offspring live long and happy lives!
Not quite as momentous, true, but I have new baby too: a shiny iPod. After years remaining loyal to my faithful Sony Walkman (won in an SFX quiz many years ago), I wandered by the iPod store in Regent Street and pondered whether I should indulge myself – only to discover the very next morning that my Walkman had given up the ghost. I honestly think my traitorous thoughts broke its heart. Still, now I have 550 songs (and counting) in my pocket, am downloading stupid amounts from iTunes and had the joy of watching the Vodcast of Have I Got News For You on the train to work this morning. Gave me the warm fuzzies, it did!
The only downside is that the screen merrily displays whatever I’m listening to, and I’m convinced my fellow commuters are judging me for liking Ricky Martin. Bugger.
