Oh dear. I just realised that my last post was on 19th January and it is now 10th February - what the hell happened? How is it that when I was younger time stretched out ahead of me like a never-ending possibility, and now it is nothing more than a big messy jumble?
Well, shame on me.
I will post properly later, as soon as the kids have had lunch, I've tidied the apartment, finished the ironing, taken a too-big school coat back to Peter Jones and bought Firstborn some new school shoes. Oh yes, and gone to the supermarket, helped Firstborn with her reading, paid some attention to the Small(er) One in the hope that she isn't scarred from neglect in later years, and grunted a few words at Alpha (ditto).
