Good girl

In my house there lives me and four females. I don’t mind this, and most of the time I don’t dwell on the issue. But one thing I have started to notice: There is much to praise in the actions and achievements of my housemates and so I’m finding that the most common refrain that […]

Day 4 update

Maisie is passing all her tests and continues to be happy and healthy. At this early stage, she seems to have a relatively calm and laid-back demeanour (a bit like her…). But ofcourse things could change. Lisa and I were reflecting today about how everything that Maisie is, is a combination of everything Lisa and […]

Back on track
