Unfortunately, I didn’t witness him coming into the world. Due to complications with my C- section I was under general anaesthetic when he was born. The following six days in hospital were difficult. But I am definitely on the mend and on the road to a full recovery.
Michael is a very good sleeper and a very good feeder. At least, he has been first ten days of life. If you’re a mother, you’ll know, circumstances can change in an instant. I’m just counting my blessings for the moment.
It was great to come home. I missed my kids and the comfort of my own bed. And hospitals can be very depressing. I was hoping to do a lot of reading while I was there. My TBR pile is enormous. But due to the drugs and tiredness, I probably did more thinking instead. I’m in that strange lull period between one story and the next. For a writer that can be both scary and freeing. There’s no constant chatter in the background where the characters in your current work in progress are deciding what to do next. It’s very quiet. So instead of eavesdropping internally, I’m doing it externally -hoping that the next big adventure might leap out at me sometime soon. You never know where the next idea is going to come from. Stay tuned and I’ll tell you when my muse is back in the building!
