Livejournal meme of 2009

It's quite simple: the first sentence of the first entry for each month in 2009 :-)
This helps me to clearly see what I really do write about! Where is my focus?

Jan: For once we decided to stay in for New Year's Eve, have a nice meal, watch a DVD and open the windows just before 12 to hear the church

Feb: As each day goes past, I feel a little bit healthier and more confident that *"dangermouse" (as mr.ncot persists in calling my little amigo) will be sticking around!

Mar: I have had such a relaxing, happy weekend and today I am resisting the urge to "get up" - ie I am still in my jimjams!

April: Updating has been a bit sporadic lately, mostly because I am working out of the Wroclaw office and don't get online much. But in short, work trip is going well!

May: Am doing well so far but the list of annoying symptoms are growing :-)

June: We are now on holiday! Our flight is a bit delayed but i have managed to blag our way into the swiss business lounge :-)

July: I had a feeling you were going to be a boy from the very start of my pregnancy. I had always thought I wanted a girl first, but from the very beginning I got the sense of you as a little lad.

Aug: I had a long chat with my sister last night on the phone and she wanted to see how "big" I had got - so I sent her this photo...

Sept: "Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good" Voltaire - This applies to so much in life, now, if only I could learn to apply this :-)

Oct: I got about 5 hours sleep last night in one stretch, because my boys decided to sleep in the living room (markus in his moses basket, alan on the sofa) and I now feel human again!

Nov: Cometh the cold weather, cometh the colds...

Dec: A year ago (on Dec 2nd and Dec 4th) we had just gone through the final stages of our IVF adventure (egg retrieval and then embryo transfer) and were beginning the long wait to hear whether we had been successful.
