Attention-seeking, going on giving and the bathroom.

1. I'm having a rubbish day, and put a sorry-for-myself status on Facebook. This shameless piece of attention-seeking gets a pleasing amount of sympathy. Of course, it's not a card I play often...

2. Nick brought home freesias on Thursday. The buttercup yellow trumpets at the tops of the sprays are beginning to collapse into soft wrinkles; but new blooms are opening on the tips.

3. I have had enough baby today. He's been lying on me all afternoon, and then feeding and feeding and feeding all evening. Finally at 10pm he stops, milk dribbling out of the corner of his mouth. I hand him to Nick, seize my book, dash into the bathroom and run myself a bubbly bath.


  1. 1. sometimes a virtual hug (or 5+) makes a down day just a little bit better. Who says Facebook friends aren't real friends?

    2. I love freesias xxxx

    3. Growth spurts when all they do is feed is exhausting. Good for you for catching some me-time. Book + bath bubbles sounds bliss

  2. It must have been a virus that day...lots of fb status seemed to be in the same vein. Perhaps it was some full moon mumbo jumbo :)

  3. Hi Clare- was it this kind of day? :)

  4. Ha ha, Becoming Human, I think he'd be too fatty and squirmy to make a good pie... It wasn't baby-related, it was all sorts of other things.
