Computers at work: Now quoted as "sometime next week". Yeah. Right.

As for my fifth (wooden) wedding anniversary present, I got L three wooden photo frames. I mean, they were wood except the bits that are glass – if the bits that are glass were wood, you wouldn’t be able to see the photo. L got me an extremely spiffy wooden pen.

And tonight to celebrate, we’re heading out to our first movie in about two years ("Kolya"). Why has it been so long? Because Isaac is almost two, that’s why. I don’t think I need to spell it out. I’m sure all the parents know exactly what I’m on about. Everyone else will discover when they have kids that this is the way of the world. But tonight after Isaac drops off to sleep, we’ll head out and leave Aunty to hold the fort.
