wee baby j and i were up and on with at 5.55am, he is the early bird cuckoo in the night owl's nest! it was chilly so i made a quick fire with a few bits of kindling (nice word) and back-of-the-wood-pile logs. wee baby j enjoyed the flames. once o-o finally awoke the three of we had a leisurely porridge before having a constitutional walk to 'the patch' where o-o smashed ice with sticks - 'i've never done this before'.
last night i finally watched the tove jansson documentary, made me wan to live on a finnish island and knit socks. i've got an idea brewing for which i need to make perforations, isn't this the cleverest?
