There was a great thunderstorm this morning. Last night's lightning was nice but this was ... thundery!! And rain! Benji was super clingy and scaredy dog about it. Which was to his detriment cause had he gone outside to toilet himself I would have left him inside. Instead I didn't have to chase him round the house and picked him up and unceremoniously plonked him outside in the rain. I felt bad as it practically hailed on my drive into work but it's sunny and warm now.
So following on from cassiphone's Holy Crap post of holy crap - baby in 10 weeks, novel in 4 weeks realisation! Ha. Sooo not laughing. Not really.
