questions motherhood makes you ask

* when did i last wash my hair?
*did i brush my teeth this morning?
* is that the boot's snot?
* do they make post pregnancy bras with built in iron girders for support?
*if breast feeding burns calories can i eat all the chocolate hob nobs i want? no? why not?
*how many crying babies does it take to make you wish you'd taken a vow of celibacy? (Now this I know the answer to!)
*When will the baby wake up and can I make it to Fuerta Ventura by then?

So my 8 months of 'maternity leave' draws to an end. Tomorrow I return to London with the Boot. It's been a wonderful stay and as much as I look forward to going back to London, I'll miss Madras. Thanks to all my friends who cheered me up and took me out to lunch when I was feeling blue, who chauffeured me around town when I was fat and couldn't move, to the aunties who made me besan ladoos and payasam and contributed to the fat and to the wonderful Madras that helped me sweat the weight away... and most of all thanks to Amma and Appa who helped put the Boot to sleep, changed nappies, sang him silly family songs, found everything he did wonderful and fascinating when I was too tired to and generally took him off my hands whenever I felt an aneurysm coming on.

See you all next year!
