My top five First World moans

This month I have been mostly getting annoyed with those unimportant things in life that still make you want to hurl something through a window as you stumble about in the sleep-deprived fog that is having a three-month-old-baby. Here’s my top five gripes: 1. Baby rocker chair legs (example A) – these stick out further… Continue reading My top five First World moans
