Man about the house, baking and cable guy.

1. Nick is at home for the day because he wants to supervise the arrival of cable this afternoon. I take him a cup of tea in bed and make him help me choose cutlery.

2. To take a batch of muffins from the oven when the timer goes off, and to discover that they are perfectly cooked.

3. The cable guy is a gadget head. He is almost as excited as Nick about the box and its features; but when he sees the iPad, he's like a school boy. "Lucky!" He says his wife won't let him have one, but I think her resolve would have softened if she'd seen his little face light up.

4. At 11.30pm, he (by which i mean Nick) comes to bed. We have Internet once more.


  1. For a millisecond I thought it was the cable guy you were referring to in (4). Clearly I can only cope with 3 Beautiful Things at once.

  2. Tee hee, I've clarified it now... There's probably a porn film 'plot' in that. Or a 3bt three in a bed scandal.

  3. What - three in bed? What rumours are we starting now? The baby isn't here yet.
