Day 5 and 6 - Las Vegas

So, finished my first day in Las Vegas. It was a typical Vegas day. Thanks to Amanda who got me on the guestlist at Playboy club at The Palms. It was a pretty interesting evening. I met a few people but actually found myself in the middle of a party that the Spearmint Rhino strip club girls were having. Very bizarre. I was then propositioned by a Russian prostitute called Sasha. She must have thought that I was a bit of a tool because she came up to me and after the classic getting to know you chat, where you from, what's your name, are you enjoying Vegas etc, she said:

"$350 will get you a good time in Vegas."

to which I replied:

"Oh really, I've only spent about $100 so far and have really enjoyed myself."

She looked a little confused and then said:

"No, I mean $350 will leave you very happy for an hour."

to which I replied:

"Sorry, what exactly are you saying."

Her response:

"Are you the police?"

"Aah, I said, you mean $350 for an hour with you. No thanks."

Andy exited stage right!

I then had a picture taken with a Playboy bunny,

and finally got home about 5am. As I said, quite a typical Vegas night.

I went to Las Vegas Old Town today and did some gambling today on Wheel of Fortune and met Amanda and Angela who were great and helped a naive English guy out who hadn't gambled before. Thanks for your patience. Spent $40 and left with $60. Get in...

My budget is so blown!

The most transformational generation?

When i think about my generation I can't help feeling that we've gone through more transformational change them any since the industrial revolution. But then it's my generation so I'm always going to think we've done more in a greater way.
The technology revolution or Internet revolution - call it what you will - completely transformed my age group.
When I think back to University, it was the first time people had an email address; now, with the likes of Slack, we're trying to make email superfluous. It was a time when people still had a choice about getting a mobile phone or not. Now it's a necessity with the only choice being which type we opt for.

I was listening to my iPod classic the other day and Del Amitri 'Nothing Ever Happens' came on. I remember first playing that on vinyl before vinyl disappeared and is now making a reappearance. The line 'the needle returns to the start of the song' completely identifies with an almost forgotten …

Week 33 to 35 (Pineapple to honeydew)

Things are getting really close now. Mum is struggling with her back and I've had to start taking on more around the house. It helps now that we've started ante-natal classes and have been able to chat to some other pregnant couples.

We're very lucky in that our NCT group are great. We've met four really nice couples and we all seem to get on well. We went out for our first meal last week and have planned another for next week. It's great to be able to talk to people in the same situation.

In fact the way our NCT coordinator talks about the birth and the first few months, it almost feels like we're all a unit preparing to go into battle. There are so many different cries, emotions, signs we have to get to know about how baby's feeling plus there're all these warnings about sleep deprivation, strange occurrences at birth, cone heads, something called 'The Show',.... WTF!

We're also starting to get into baby shower season, that's somethin…

Becoming a dad - Weeks 12 to 13 (size Peach)

Weeks 12 to 13

It's been a hectic lead up to this point but finally, this week we found out we were definitely pregnant. It's an amazing feeling and one that we thought may not happen. I wanted to document the run in to becoming a dad for the first time. I hope I manage to keep it up in this blog.
Since we found out I find myself taking stock during quiet moments and steadily coming to terms with the reality that we about to realise a significant milestone in our lives.
It's an odd feeling because it doesn't quite feel real but yet I'm already planning ahead to when the moment arrives and I can hold baby in my arms. It's difficult to predict how that will feel and I'm trying not to be too methodical about the whole process. We should be enjoying this lead up. That's important.
It's exciting to plan ahead and today we went into London to look at baby things. It's only when you enter a shop like Mothercare for the first time where you're not …
