I took yesterday off, mostly. Apart from some admin and a therapy appointment that made me want to sleep for a week. I went back to bed and read some book and listened to music and it was glorious. Tuesday night at midnight I submitted a 5,000 word group assignment of Policy Analysis and Advocacy. And the weekend had the wonderful birthday parties for darlings Poppy, who turned 3, and my adorable niece, who turned 1!
I had a rough week last week and some kindly folks reminded me that baking cakes was only for people who felt up to dealing with the dishes, so Poppy’s gorgeous octonauts cake is a couple of supermarket mudcakes and a lot of tasty buttercream icing. It was a fantastic day.
Three is a special age, and somehow Poppy feels so much older so suddenly. I’ve been out a lot lately and missing her. The sweet cuddles and silly games we play when I’m home are the most wonderful things in the world. She is pure magic.
