Had a very mother-in-training day. As is par for the course these days my bladder woke me up at 5am and 8am. All in preparation for when the bladder is replaced with screaming bundle of joy.

Decided to cook a nicoise salad for lunch and a vegetable soup for dinner while still in my pajamas drinking half-caf coffee. What made me want to chop leeks in my slippers I have no idea.

It's free museum day in Nottinghamshire sponsored by Nottingham BBC. My first reaction was: What museums? And then remembered the Museum of Nottingham Life at the Brewhouse Yard and dragged the Frenchman down for a little historical culture.

Antique toys and section devoted to having and caring for babies in early 1900's and onwards in Nottinghamshire was awesome. Especially the "vintage" Gameboy. Nothing like having a toy you used to own displayed in a museum to make you feel old.

Getting some practice pushing a pram. Massive. And fabulous suspension I might add.

Some more pics from the museum:

  1. "Vintage" Gameboys? Seriously? It's a good thing I don't live there, Museum of Nottingham Life, or I'd have a few words for you.
