Oblivious to the incoming tide, Blossy hunts up her now sandy, spilled sultanas.

    That’s gorgeous – don’t you just love that little people don’t actually care where their sultanas fall – just they want them back?

    So is she Blossom or just Blossy? My parents called me Blossom for years – in fact I mostly forgot that I actually HAD a proper name! However once I started pointing out that Blossom or Bloss wasn’t particularly endearing when you were trying to impress the opposite sex, they soon stopped – bless them! 🙂

  6. lol! Sometimes it’s not so convenient that she wants those sultanas back 😛 (sorry to gross you out, but think about those post-sandy-sultana nappies…)

    We started off calling her Blossom. It has evolved to Blossy, and often just Bloss. My mother (who never called us anything other than our given names) has questioned why I even bother naming my babies? But, and I know this will sound terrible, but particularly when we have named the baby before she’s born, I just can’t use the name for ages afterward. It represents to me months and months of terrible illness, and hence isolation, and then of course that’s capped off with some mighty tough pain at the end. None of which I ever want to think about again!!

    It’s funny about your parents. I’d not so much thought about that, but there will no doubt be a couple of name changes here, too. 😉

    Names are interesting things aren’t they? We had Ruby picked out for Miss Boo, but when she was born she just didn’t LOOK like a Ruby – so it was back to the drawing board. And even now she’s not called by her “proper” name (which is Isobel) because her Dadda started calling her Bella and it kind of stuck (and now there are lot of confused people who think her name is Isabella!). Sigh!

    Can sympathise with the whole months of sickness thing. I was MUCH sicker with the little Miss than the lads. Maybe you should try for a boy baby??!!! 😉

  8. Fee, hmmm I don’t think my optimism extends to a boy (and a cheerful pregnancy!) And could you imagine his life, homeschooled with four big sisters? Poor little tyke, the words ‘hen pecked’ come to mind… 🙂

    What is sultanas???

  10. Come, Nivin, you can’t tell me they don’t eat sultanas in Dubai? Perhaps you call them something different there? (I can’t imagine what.. you’ll have to tell me) They are dried grapes, larger than currants, but not as large as raisins… they are sweet, and a favourite food for little people.

    What could you be calling them…? 😀
