man. more than 2 weeks since my last post. that went quick. the truth is, i think the realisation that after my apparently very rare, post-birth hematoma, that in another time or place, i would probably be dead (drama queen much?).. has shaken me a little. crept into my pschye or something. i'm lucky the seemingly small symptoms were recognised by an awesome midwife before i lost too much blood and i was lucky i had my own obstetrician that could take me into surgery straight away. i was lucky i was already in hospital and had a calm, kind anesthetist on staff that night. i was lucky i had a perfectly healthy baby sleeping in his daddy's arms while i was whisked away, but it has definitely played on my mind. not at the time. it's never at the time is it? anyways, i'm fine, but it is a weird feeling, feeling like i've used up another one of my nine lives or whatever. so, what does all this have to do with the photos? this beautiful marimekko teapot is what i like to call my 'charlie teapot'. when mirka was born, the husband gave me the beautiful eames rocker & i wanted to buy something special to celebrate charlie boy's birth. something beautiful, but everyday too. something that would become part of my daily life, like the eames rocker has. plus, it matches the mug the husband gave me for my last birthday.. so when i saw this beauty whilst out shopping with kingsley, i decided it was the perfect little something. special.
