Highlight(?) of the week was taking the little man to see uncle Richard in Kettering where he has unfettered access to shit pizza, squash, and bourbon biscuits. Bae and baby girl not in attendance because they were headed north for a funeral. It winds me up a bit how little of a shit my brother appears to give about his niece. He did eventually ask after her as he was driving us back to the station. But he lives on another planet where editing the village hall magazine and cleaning old salt and pepper mills takes precedence over spending time with (or at the very least showing the faintest interest in) family. He’s always been like this so I suppose I shouldn’t let it get me down as much as it does.

Went to the Young V&A on Friday. I thought it was excellent, but quite hard to work out what the little man made of it. After the fact he claims to have enjoyed himself, but that certainly didn’t feel like the overarching mood at the time. It’s definitely more museum than soft-play and my guess is he wasn’t quite prepared for that. Maybe we’ll go again soon now he knows what to expect.

I burned through three ceramic rotary drill heads to get through the buggy axle. I really didn’t think it was going to work out (again), confident it would end with me having buggered the buggy beyond repair. It was an intense rush of relief when I finally got a new wheel on. A couple more wheels and the knock-off Drimmel will have paid for itself, but not sure my blood-pressure can withstand it.

An ex-architect pal has put us in touch with an architect they hold in high esteem and I’m really hoping they can help us knock our slightly depressing flat into something less bleak. They’ve not yet responded to my initial message so I’m not going to get my hopes up yet.

The little man continues to wake up far too early.

Baby girl has a rotten cold.


Mostly boshing through accessibility improvements flagged in the recent audit.
