The Clarabel buggy – wot so funee?

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Andrew’s confusion between Thomas (the Tank Engine) and hummus. This week he had a couple more train name substitutions for other items. The first was another edible item. As we were eating dinner one evening, he looked down at his bowl and said “Look, it’s a Gordon”. I looked and said “Really?

Pregnancy diary: week 30 – buggy and blood issues

Before I go any further, I should say that this post isn’t as horrific as it sounds! There’s no gore involved.
