    • Worked in the garden today. Chopped down trees (the cherry tree got hit by lightening in a storm a couple of weeks ago and the apple tree has wood worm or similar) and pulled weeds. Baked three Christmas cakes (two for sale) and three puds (one for sale, one for a gift). Cleaned the kitchen three times in between. Vacuumed. Three loads of laundry. I'm coming down with a cold.

      But, still. A productive day.
      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

          • Oh, and I was chatting to a friend yesterday who's little girl is losing her first set of teeth, her mouth looks like Stonehenge at the moment! The going rate is 1 for a front tooth and 2 for a back gnasher, not sure when the differing rates came in!

            • Small boy was flipping his French toast this morning - standing on a chair to reach and carefully supervised. We were talking about him being able to make his own breakfast soon.
              Small boy: 'One day, if you're still alive, I might even cook you breakfast.'

              Thanks, son.

              Cold matured. This is the second day at home, sick. Yesterday, late in the afternoon when I was getting cabin fever to go with the actual fever, husband took me for a little drive to a mystery destination: the shop at the municipal tip. We know how to do romance.

                That made me LOL. I said a similar thing to my mum when I was little. "Mummy, I love your dress! Can I have it when you're dead?"

                In earnest.
                "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                  It's interesting, because everything is so transparent with little kids, how the push-pull of 'can't wait until you're cold / please never, ever die - it'd be the end of the world' plays out. Parental death is ultimate freedom; it's also terrifying aloneness. We don't really change as we age, we just become more nuanced in our expression.

                        Sadly, no. But I mentally filed it as a possibility (there was a surprising number of sewing machines). Reminded me of this:

                            But I need an Aussie/Brit-to-American translation: what is a municipal tip??

                                Council run and open to the general public, my local one won't let builders vans in, over here it's stuff the garbologists won't take, which as my rubbish bins about the size of a wicker basket is virtually bloody everything....

                                Gig alert, went to see the Boomtown Rats last night, went with an open mind as I can't say I'm the biggest Rats fan, but they were absolutely fantastic!

                                Little boy story's a classic.
