Last two weeks (ish)

My hair, it’s curly - All my life I’ve had straight hair. This shouldn’t come as any surprise to people who’ve met me at least once. Long hair, short hair, medium hair – it’s always been straight. Until about a month ago. It started getting curly. Here’s a little collage of my hair from about two months ago (the most... Continue Reading →
Moby Dick - Grant is having about as much luck as I did with it. In the last picture he has carried it off to throw into the hall.
Tiny reader - He found a quiet spot to look at the book we just read and shout at it.

Circus act - Safety first, I always say. 
Popular posts by year - Every year around this time, apparently, I took a look at my annual stats and see what topics I write about are most popular that year.
