We got some light shades up in the flat and it immediately feels less like a prison. Feel a bit silly for not having done it sooner.

Caught up with old Friday pals on Tuesday for a very pleasant evening of frites and non-alcoholic Sportzot in The Dovetail, Farringdon. I’m still periodically chuckling to myself about the idea that Blink-182’s latest album is type safe.

Felt slightly hungover the next day, so either hangovers aren’t entirely to do with alcohol content, or I wasn’t entirely drinking non-alcoholic beer. I’ve long had my suspicions about the former, but can’t entirely rule out the latter either.

Trell came to visit on Wednesday and witnessed the full gamut of emotions (mostly from the kids, mostly because we strong-armed her into staying for tea).

Bae’s parents came to stay for the weekend and Bae went to Birmingham for a course on Saturday. I was really grateful for the help because baby girl is full of the most manky cold I’ve ever encountered which means sleep is at a higher premium than usual (keen readers of this organ will note that this is an impressive feat). I’m shitting myself about this coming Wednesday when Bae’s back at work and I get to deal with both barrels kids solo. Can only hope baby girl has improved some by then.

I feel a bit emotionally flat, ratty, and very quick to temper. I can’t begin to think why. And turns out I was prematurely optimistic about any improvement in the bursitis in my foot. Fuck.
