Better than rubies, bakewell and out on the Common.
1. I'm about to put the bed linen out on the line for the first time this year when I remember a piece of advice given to me by Anna, one of my university housemates (she got it from her mother): "Wipe the washing line with a damp cloth." Looking at the cloth afterwards, I'm awfully glad I called the incident to mind.
2. This bakewell tart is still warm from the oven.
3. Alec and I take a walk across the Common. I show him the walled up gentleman's conveniences where the bats live; and the pond where the frogs are spawning. This is an aspect of parenthood I really like -- walking around showing someone all the cool and interesting stuff you know.
