Lady G, international baby of mystery

April 16, 2010

In case my mother’s reading this (and almost certainly she isn’t): Oh, look over there, there’s a badger with a gun!

[Cone of silence] OK, so here’s the plan.  Next week Lady G and I will sneak ourselves across international borders and hole up in an undisclosed location, in order to surprise Crazy Granny on her 60th birthday.  In order to keep this secret squirrel, only Paki, Nine, Roo’s Mamma and the entire Internet know about the plan.

And here’s the really crafty bit – because I only booked the flights this evening that’s all the plan there is – ingenious huh!  She’s never going to expect this.  Apart from the fact that my family has a long tradition of surprising each other on important anniversaries from places afar.  But rarely with a small child in tow, so I think we’re good. [/Cone of silence]

I do need to make a couple of purchases before we go based on our learnings from the previous trip.  We’re planning a few trips in the next year so it’s probably time to buy a portacot.  I’m thinking this gadgetty KinderKot will be just the thing (only 3kg and self inflating – like a pair of pyjamas that can be inflated to the size and consistency of a small speed boat).

P.S. Does anyone else think the guy in the linked photo is weighing up whether it would be easier to put the kid in the boot and the KinderKot in the carseat?
