The Artist in Residence

Dear Purple Frockers,

I may have been silent, but I’ve been hatching some big news… literally.  I have a little Artist in Residence (also known as The Little Dot), who despite only measuring 7cm has caused a lot of havoc and amazing changes over the last three months. Just like its mother, the Little Dot is an overachiever and totally kicked butt on all of the terrifying tests that one has to face at the 13 week mark, especially being of “advanced maternal age”. Ugh. 

All things going well, the Little Dot will arrive late July / early August, and I’m just so thrilled. There may not be any dating stories for a while, but it came to the point that the baby had to happen now, and the Late Dude can turn up later on, without the pressure of being a single woman of a certain age who wants a child.  I’m open to Baby no 2 if the Late Dude gets himself into gear and appears in time.

 Much love from the Purple Frock and the Little Dot.

    You write really well. And you are a strong individual to go solo with the IVF. Good on you. By the way, Did you ever wear a purple frock?
