... and many more things I didn't get to photograph. There has also been me, struggling to hold a fascinating debate about the economy with a teenaged child whilst the younger ones interrupted with various needs, asks and wants, and struggling to get the solstice dinner to the table in the face of the baby's irrecusable urge to "help" - such help, in this case, consisting of her grabbing handsful of random cutlery from the drawer and abandoning it in various stages between there and the table. Several times. And then promising an afternoon nap but determinedly failing to follow through.
This is a warts and all blog, I think, from now on.
