  1. Ha ha ha – for sure!
    Especially as he’s just caught her sneakily sewing up all the pockets on his favourite driving blazer…..

  3. I think he's just regained conciousness from an earlier fight (note skewed picture on wall) and is wreaking his revenge on her while she's distracted by repairing the tears in her skirt.

  4. Well nobody likes to have to hang those darn things! (curtains, not spouses- wait not that you should want to hang your spouse more than- oh never mind!)

  5. I don’t believe she’s distracted at all, I think she knows exactly what he’s up to. Remember we were born with eyes in the back of our heads.

  6. Is she not sewing the curtain hem and he is holding the curtain and rod for her?
    He just wants her to hurry up!…or…he is about to clock her with it!!!

  7. Isn’t it your birthday, soon?!
    Happy, Happy Birthday! Have a wonderful one! (Hope I’m right, but I rememeber last year, it was near to one of my dear ones.)
    Much Love!

  9. Hi Alison, I adore your blog.
    By my reckoning Finley is around 4 or 5? Personally, I think maybe too much stress is required by the ‘system’ as to what children should be able to do at particular ages. I suggest you just take deep breaths and see it for what it is – a total load of crap. Don’t get sucked in to ‘what’s normal’. Plenty of kids can’t properly use a pair of scissors or spell their name when they start school here in Australia, which is usually at age 5 or 6. From different sources I’m thinking that in the U.S. a lot of children have more required of them than they are ready for at that particular time. I hope this isn’t coming across as judgmental, what it is intended to be is reassuring and a gentle reminder not to get caught up and left feeling inadequate by the ‘system’. It is meant as a post of motherly support 🙂

  10. …and I know my comment had nothing to do with the curtain rod post – which by the way, must make me slightly evil minded too, because that’s just what it looks like – the dissatisfied glint in his eye perhaps 🙂

  11. Okay, I promise this is the last time I'll post today. My apologies for the U.S thing as I've just realised you're in the U.K. But I think in the U.K. things might be getting out of hand with the whole kid expectation thing. There was a show on here a while back. I can't recall the name of it, but it was all about how parents went a bit crazy on the who 'kid/social' front.
    Sue hope it doesn't happen here – I just don't have the energy for that sort of thing.

  12. Oh what a treasure your blog is!
    Thank you so much for just being you, and for having the courage to open your thoughts and feeling to us all. I spent hours yesterday browsing through archival posts and comments – you are inspirational.
    I always thought that my rather eccentric, retired-actress ways (think Rosalind Russell and Lucille Ball as "Mame" and you'll get the idea) should be toned down a bit so as not to frighten the everyday folk. But now I am liberated! You have given be confidence to honour my inner leading lady and LEAD! I shall be unique, flamboyant and waffle as I please!
