Csíkszereda Musings

My life in and around Csíkszereda, also known as Miercurea Ciuc.

Eight down, one to go

Posted by Andy Hockley on 4 November, 2005

It’s getting closer and closer to the big day. This was brought home to me yesterday when we went to the doctor and he said not to bother coming back until we were in labour. But then I expounded my views on Tony Blair and how that wasn’t about to happen and he let us off. Ha ha. No but seriously, it’ll be in the first half of December (probably), and as it’s now the first half of November (certainly) that means it’s very soon.

Suddenly I have become aware that my usual method of planning (cross every bridge when you come to it) may not be a terriby good idea in this case. It would probably, for example, be a good idea to have somewhere for the little lass to sleep when she gets here. She might need clothes and stuff too. And really, I can’t just take care of this when she’s shows up. If I still lived n the US someone would have thrown us a baby shower (no, I have no idea why it’s called a shower either) and we’d have a house full of useful and less useful items, but here in Europe, while we may have easily available espresso coffee and a less rigid work ethic, the day of the shower is not upon us. (Why we import such concepts as trick or treat, and not the more useful ones as this is beyond me).

Mind you, we saw nice pictures of her and she doesn’t look as csunya* as she did last time. (Csunya = ugly, and to be fair neither me nor Erika thought she was csunya last time either, but Bogi was quite sure of it. Now, even she is convinced of the possibility that her sister will not be some blobby foetal thing with indistinct facial features).

    There are three possibilities here, Mircea

    1. You are someone I know doing some kind of bizarre wind-up.
    2. You are quite quite mad (and I hope merely harmlessly insane)
    3. You have made some kind of mistake. I have no idea who you are, and rest assured I do not owe you a penny.

    Please email me if you really think I owe you money so we can clear this up, and work out who you think I am.
