Bundle of Bobbie

My younger sister recently had a baby. It is a bit strange being the oldest sister and being the only one not in a 'long-term' relationship, with a real job, or a car, or a fixed address.

I was in Nepal when she emailed me to tell me she was having a baby. I think she was nervous. The email was carefully worded. She probably labored over every syllable, i could almost hear her holding her breath and waiting for my reply from across the ocean. I admit i did feel a bit like an old maid when I first read it.. she is almost six years younger than me.

I was in Nepal again when Evie was born. I have never had much to do with babies. They actually scare me a little bit. I hate the helplessness i feel when I can't give them what they need, it is worse when you don't even know what they need.

The other day i read my sister's baby blog. It isn't the kind of blog I'd normally read given that i run from anything pregnancy related. She has written a post on the birth of her daughter Evie. I am not sure, maybe i am getting soft or something, but it made me cry. You can tell she really loves her new little family.

So if you are into the baby thing head over here and have a little look at Bundle of Bobbie

I have writer's block. I stare at the big white 'new post' rectangle and i have nothing...

My life is a mess. I've been home for a week. My suitcase is still on the floor where i dropped it. Its contents has slowly scattered across my room as every day i have to ferret deeper into its depths for clean underwear and socks.

I could do laundry and unpack but that would mean accepting i am home for good. If i am home for good i have to accept i am a 27 year old,single woman with no job or prospects, who lives with her mother. I am not ready to accept that yet.

I have enough clean clothes for a week. I must find employment before then... or buy more underwear to put off doing laundry.
