Stirring times

“Daddy, I made a mask.” And so she had. A monkey mask and she’d sewed a little bunny purse all by herself. Michelle had got a whole box full of cool activity stuff and they spent a good deal of yesterday sticking and sewing and other good things.

There’s nothing like seeing your kids developing and discovering new things – Josie’s really starting to collect knowledge now while keeping up her gruelling climbing-jumping-running-swinging routine. Sophie’s desperately wanting to crawl and throws a mean tantrum (at 10 months mind) when Josie has cool stuff she wants. Sophie’s also talking intelligibly (to us that is), which is mindblowing. She calls us all by name and says words like “kiss”, “cuddle”, “noooo!”, “juice” and a host of others. Sophie frequently echoes words we say in conversation.

I’ve spent most of the week waist-deep in a morass of, well, waste really. I think I’ll reach an edge at about lunchtime today and clamber out. Roll on weekend!

Tonight I’m meeting up with friends I made on a course in Feb. Tomorrow the Three and I are all going to a birthday party, and on Sunday MGW and I will have been married 10 years! She is a marvel …

    Well done on 10 years! If you’re like us… then marriage is BETTER than what they made it out to be. Congrats.
