Tulips, meat and relief.

1. My father brought me some tulips, some citrus yellow and some crimson. One of the yellow ones has a streak of scarlet on two petals.

2. Nick carves pink slices of cold roast lamb for supper.

3. Alec has been squirming whatever way we hold him. He doesn't care for toys, and even the feed which he was screeching for doesn't help -- he keeps taking himself off and turning his head to smile at me in a very disconcerting way. At 10.30pm, perched on his father's lap, he goes very quiet and then fills his nappy. Once he (and the bathroom) are clean again, he settles and the house is quiet.


  1. Its all about the small things! Just discovered your blog and I shall be back!

  2. I love the way you see life. It must be truly beautiful for you! I like them all today!

  3. Ah yes, the disconcerting smile... ha!

  4. yeah, I love celebrating the ordinary. Great list.
