In Poland I've had the opportunity to become a bit self-righteous about it all. I sold my car last year, I don't eat meat, and now make most of my journeys by public transport. We live in a smallish apartment, don't have too many electrical products, and unlike my life in the UK I no longer spend all of my day dodging between every office appliance known to man - the computer, printer, kettle, photocopier, kettle, shredder, kettle and so on.

On about my 8th serving I realised that I was ridiculously full and so took refuge in the children's play area with Audrey. I lay on the mat holding my stomach, while she played with the lego blocks just long enough for me to recover before heading back for my second serve of pudding (very nice chocolate mousse it was too).

It's always run on an informal turn up if you can basis, so we had no idea how many guests we'd have. The mornings typically run from 10am, but by 10.15am no-one at all had shown up - making me wish we'd perhaps posted the event on Facebook (ala Corey Delaney). Fortunately though we were then deluged with guests, and ended up with around 15 mums (and another dad) and their respective babies and toddlers squeezed into our apartment.
The (really nice) security guards on reception in our building had found huge amusement in telling them the way to our place and, like us, had been surprised when mum after mum (after dad) turned up throughout the morning.
Everyone seemed to have a good time and the ginger-bread people I'd made were a big hit with some of the older children who ended up besieging the table where the plate of them sat!
It was great fun, and we'll definitely run another morning or two before we leave Warsaw.
The evening was less fun as Audrey had to have her six months set of injections (one in either leg) and the doctor had warned us that the second one in particular was quite painful. She was pretty brave about the whole thing and there weren't too many tears.
When it came to bedtime she was clearly unsettled. But (hopefully) she seems back to her usual happy self this morning.

1. Stand on your left foot with your right foot raised a few inches off the ground
2. Move your right foot in a circular motion (clockwise)
3. (While continuing to circle your foot) with a pen in your right hand try drawing the figure '6' on a piece of paper
Good isn't it!

In the evening we had a few friends round for dinner which was great and we all ate and drank well.

Englishman says, "I gave my baby the name 'George' as he was born on St.George's Day". "That's a coincidence," says the Scotsman, "my baby's called 'Andrew' as he was born on St.Andrew's Day". "Well I never!", exclaims the Albi*n fan, "It's my son, Pancake's birthday tomorrow."
