Sleeping in, soothed and out for a walk.

1. To wake up with Alec's warm weight on my chest.

2. I finally persuade Alec to take a dummy -- which means I can put him down and eat my lunch (also breakfast).

3. His bike is yellow and his grin is gappy. "Are you enjoying the sunshine, madame?" I concede that I am. Alec and I are sitting on the edge of the cricket pitch -- I've taken Alec out of the pram to show him the wind and the sky; but he keeps his eyes screwed tight shut against the winter sun.
