Day #162 Sing with me, baby

Some of you might recall the unavailability of Hawkeye’s Captain America trousers during my mad rush to locate a superhero costume a few weeks ago. Since then the trousers did eventually get laundered and I put them on Hawkeye today as they were light enough for the weather forecast and were the closest to hand…

Day #159 Astronomers we are not

Yes, the Mister and I got out of the house on a date last night! A little pre-birthday celebration meal made possible by his mother visiting us for the weekend, which let the two of us slip away after Hawkeye’s bedtime. We had a lovely meal at Charlotte Quay which has been open for a while…

Day #157 Waiting to ascend

I’ve been meaning to get a potty seat and step stool for the bathroom but just haven’t quite managed to get to that line on my…
