Happy Days



Calm has returned. The baby sleeps. The sun has come out. The air smells of sweet orange essential oil.

The morning, although it started badly when our trip to the farmers' market was rained off, ended up as a charming and happy way to spend wet play. We bought scones from the deli and Alice and I had tea, scones with jam and a good old chat, while the babies played, scrapped, giggled and ate headless gingerbread men. Delightful.

After a perfectly simple lunch of soft boiled egg and soldiers, I pottered, and await the delivery of our new kitchen sinks.

And yesterday my parents came home after two months in France, and we ate jam tarts. They played with Piglet, who was thrilled to see them.



And Saturday morning we will take part in our new ritual, the ritual of the thirty-something, babied couple: coffee and cake in the espresso bar at John Lewis, before we choose our new cooker. Trente ans, cake-filled heaven.
