Tumbleweeds

I’ve been a terribly slack blogger lately – if slack can be defined as juggling a VERY AWAKE six-month-old baby, with a freelance job which I do from home – while simultaneously trying (and failing) to put the aforementioned sleep-averse baby to sleep. 

Anyway I decided I really didn’t want to go another week without giving you SOMETHING to look at, so please enjoy these shots of Tutti today, in all her bespectacled, black-hatted glory.

The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…

There’s no other way to say this: Yesterday, I felt completely wretched. Not a little bit discombobulated, or run-of the mill unhappy or mildly depressed, but truly wretched, in the most conspicuous-wailing, red-eyed-and-sodden-faced kind of way.

A Jewish Mother’s Lament

Morning loyal followers (er, hi Mum, hi Dad!)

Sherman and Tiggy, my devil-children.

What Tutti Wore…

To drink a cup of tea. English Breakfast with milk and one sugar. I’ve tried to wean her off the one sugar but she whines like a small dog until I give in.

And that’s it for today!

I’ve decided to scale back my posts to three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) because I’m finding five a week just a little bit ambitious when I also have a full-time job, a social life and too many episodes of Dexter / True Blood / Please, Marry My Boy to watch (and maybe, just maybe, I will finally commit myself to Breaking Bad, despite watching three episodes about six months ago and not really enjoying them). Plus, quality, not quantity, right?
