1. We put our two boys in the back of Jo's car, and they look across at each other. I think they're still surprised by the idea of other babies.
1b. Jo comes up with two excellent beautiful things -- I hope she comments and shares them!
2. On a hot, hot day, to go to the cinema for a newbies show. I feel guilty to be wasting the sunshine -- but then I remember how much I worry about Alec burning; and how cross he gets when the sun is in his eyes.
3. We get home and on our cool doorstep is a Friday Flower Box from Molly Dishwasher, a gift from Anna. There is a bunch of sweetpeas in blues and indigos and violets; dahlias like red velvet cushions; and closed green-white beaks of lilies. By nightfall one of the lilies has opened into a star bigger than my hand.
