Sharing, taking over and steampunk.

1. "Mummy, you 'av some," says Alec offering his Easter egg. Later in the day I give him a white chocolate bunny and send him upstairs to wake Nick from his afternoon nap. "I'm sure Daddy would like a bite."
A while later they come down again. "I've wiped the chocolate off him."
"And did he let you have some?"
"He did, a little tiny bite."

2. Nick takes over lunch -- having lamb, and he does very well by choosing to slow roast it. His potatoes are perfect, too. It's very relaxing being assistant cook, rather than being responsible.

3. I've been enjoying the steampunk podcast The Clockwork Cabaret while I work. I particularly appreciated being re-introduced to the pith-helmeted rapper Professor Elemental; and discovering the (steam)punk band The Men who will not be Blamed for Nothing.
