How do you like our beautiful new sofa? DH found it on eBay, we'd been searching for something to replace our old one which, although in good condition, was cream (not a baby or cat-friendly colour) and looking a bit shabby. I was initially a bit unsure and couldn't imagine it in our lounge, but now that we have it I absolutely love it! It is a plush, deep red velvet, and it is huge. And it was remarkably good value, even more so because we unexpectedly got quite a good price for the old one (which we sold on eBay).
Thanks to those of you who have asked after Monkey. Today she really seemed back to her usual self, a bit snotty, but her appetite seems to have returned and she had a good day with Nanna. She has also slept well for the last 2 nights, waking just the once to feed (hope I haven't jinxed myself there!). We have discovered that singing 'Teddy Bears Picnic' helps with most things- I must have sung it a zillion times over the last few days, but it has enabled me to settle her in her cot rather than having to get her (and my boobs) out each time she rouses!
