Stranger things

Fact about me: I'm not the person who strikes up a conversation in the lift/queue/toilets...in personality tests I'm an introvert. If you're familiar with Insights/The Colour Works I'm blue/green and have to really work on being sunny yellow.

Why did no one warn me that when you have a baby everyone talks to you, and, horror of horrors they expect you to talk back! I was prepared for adorning looks and coos, but I was not ready for the general chit chat that my not so little bundle of sicky joy comes with!

Christmas shopping trip today and I found out:

All about customer service lady's fertility problems, surprise baby and subsequent divorce

How one Mum cannot find a suitable winter coat anywhere, gaaa to the idea of her wearing the same as her friend's little girl even though it's peeeeeerfect

Asda doesn't have any nice baby boy gifts or nice gift wrapping

Lady wants to buy neighbour with new baby something cheap because she's not really that good a neighbour

Dads don't deserve new baby gifts (don't get me started on that one. Scott deserves a medal)

Asda doesn't have any nice baby boy gifts or nice gift wrapping (had the misfortune of bumping into this chatty lady not only in the baby aisle but the bakery too)

One grandma-to-be is so disappointed her daughter is having a boy - oh all the pretty dresses she'll never, ever, be able to buy  

Asda doesn't have any nice baby boy gifts or nice gift wrapping (gaa, why did I make that last minute decision to get washing up liquid..)

I'm pretty sure al this chatting is what took me into the next car parking fee band. Chat doesn't come cheap.
