Better things to do, Green Arrow and ancient cats.

1. It's noon. The dishwasher is full, I am not dressed and there is a load of wet washing to hang out. But Alec wants to suck my finger, so I'm going to sit on the sofa and the housework can wait its turn.

2. Nick returns from the model train show with a green engine for the wooden train set that we are yet to buy for Alec. "The Green Arrow," he tells Alec, adding that they'll go to the show together, perhaps not next year, but the year after.

3. I have left my boys watching a documentary about sabre-tooth cats. "Mine are watching the football," she says.


  1. Sadly, by the time Rachel and I got to the stand Nick pointed us to the few pieces of wooden train had gone. But one day, I'm sure Alec will have a train set the envy of all his friends ;)

  2. Clare, I agree whole heartedly with #1. You did the right thing.
