The Waiting Game

It's a prolonging tale
This wait
For a wail

Of baby's first breath
On a breath-taking day
You're prepared
But rather scared
Of what may
Be about to come

A new life
In your hands
No longer just you
And your wife

But for now
You're on the edge
Almost there
Going crazy
For them to start
their journey
For air

Like a cotton wool fool 
With a fluffy 
Bunny rabbit brain. 

Simple thoughts drag on 
The regular refrain. 

But at least I can 
Hold back a sneeze 
While the pollen drifts by 
On the breeze.

Index Linked

Well, those Walpurgis embers glowed a lot longer than I expected, and we're still awaiting the birth of the baby.

Although the due date isn't until Friday, so lots of time to go yet...anyone who hasn't yet had a go fancy having a guess at the due date, weight and gender?

With the recent news that MP's might soon be voting themselves a £10k pay rise, or at least considering it (obviously we're not all in this together quite as much as they liked to make out), it made me think that perhaps there could be a way of us all being in this together and that is index-linking pensions, benefits and minimum wage etc to MP's pay. That way, every time they get a bit more, so do we (well not me exactly, but those who really need it). Something to think about when we finally create our egalitarian society at least.

One of the reason's I've been off a little longer is because of something I've been working on for the past few weeks and that is a Premiership Entertainment Index (PEI for short) and you can find a link to the blog where it's documented at the top of this page.
As a nerd for numbers and statistics generally it's been something I've been thinking about for a while before putting it into fruition. So if you're curious about numbers and football, it might be worth a little look.
