1. I have a funny craving at the moment -- it's for a colour combination. Alec is wearing a lot of blue and orange, and I've been putting orange nasturtiums in blue glasses on the table.
2. Granny Nane and Alec are burning off some energy on the bed. Once I get to a safe place with dinner, I go upstairs to join them. Alec smiles when he sees me. I pick him up and he puts his arms out and gives me a squeeze.
3. I post a frustrated status on Facebook. One friend provides practical help, and another provides sympathy for the real cause of the problem. Ask and you shall receive, indeed.
