Me again, nursery run and night noises.

1. A gaming session with Meredith makes me feel like a me again, not a mummy (not that I mind being a mummy, but it feels so good to step out of that character for an hour or two).

2. All the dads coming off the train, urgent in flapping coats to do the Friday evening nursery run.

3. To sink into bed and hear Bettany snoring softly in the cot and to feel Alec's hot little back against mine.

  1. "Stepping out of that character for an hour" -- what a great way to express the need to be oneself for a while! I also admire the phrase "lad and dad" . . . such clever writing! Thanks for sharing these beautiful glimpses.
