Late sleeper, short films and revolver.

1. I am woken just before 6am -- Alec has been sleeping since 10pm. It feels very good to have had so much sleep.

2. While tooling around with the cable box menus, I stumble across the Virgin Shorts -- a festival of three-minute films. I jab at random and end up watching one called Sign Language. It is sweet and subtle and funny and I like it so much that I make Nick watch it, too. It's about a man who holds a signboard on Oxford Street, and a colleague who he can't talk to because "she's not union", and... well it's only three minutes -- you can watch it yourself.

3. I start to feel that it might be my turn to cuddle Alec, so I go up to the attic where the boys are listening to Material World. Nick says: "I put him on the bed and he turned round a whole 180 degrees to look at me."


  1. I'm longing for a longer sleep too. =)

  2. Longer sleeps seem impossible with a baby...someday, someday. Until then, snuggle those baby cheeks.

  3. We get the odd excellent night, and they are beyond lovely and welcome as rain after a dry spell. But I don't mind the night feeds -- it's just the two of us snuggled up in the dark.

  4. That film is absolutely gorgeous - thanks for sharing :-)
