I apologise for my short disappearance. It has been a crazy, hectic and eventful few weeks. But the biggest excitement has to be the welcoming of my new 2-month-old daughter.
Her name is Bronzy and she came to me as a loving gift from a friend. She has a fantastic personality -- affectionate, bold, curious, very happy to be cradled in your arms and adores water. Bathing her is as easy as eating my favourite gelati ice-cream. Bathing Slash, on the other hand, is as tricky as solving the Rubik's Cube while refereeing a WWF wrestling match.
One of my problems, at the moment, is helping Slash and Bronzy get along. In spite of making their introductions as non-threatening and drama-less as possible, I have since had to referee non-stop hissy fits and foil lightning-quick assassination attempts. While I do not expect them to adore each other right away, avoiding bloodshed seems to be a good immediate goal. And I have only one week till the new semester to remove murder from their eyes.
For now, progress is slow. Slash wants to eradicate this intruder, while Bronzy wants to be rid of this predator twice her size and weight.
