This is as homemade as our pizza gets.
Supermarket brand base, bean and garlic puree, spinach, prosciutto, mozzarella, and an egg. No tomato. Yummy!
Someone posted about these pre-walker Doc Martens on Facebook. OMG. I have to hold out for the ones she can actually walk in, though. Red patent Docs for my baby. Oh, that’s so cool I’ve got the chills.
We made pesto.
We made pesto with lots of extra garlic. It was so hot I needed milk to cool down. Anne sucked all the pesto off her pasta and didn’t need a drink. I think she might take after her father in that department.
A cinema in Swindon does parent and baby screenings. I went and saw Life of Pi with a few ‘mummy friends’ (I swear I will never use that phrase again) and even though it was 10am, it felt amazing to do something kind of normal again.
I did wonder if Ang Lee would recreate the iconic jacket image, and I’m not sure if I’m glad or disappointed that he did. The film was quite obviously filmed for 3D, and there was so much CGI it was completely unreal. That said, Life of Pi is such a surreal story that it’s probably a good thing. And it makes me want to read Beatrice and Virgil again.
Some key moments were missing, but that was absolutely understandable.
It wasn’t the best film I’ve ever seen, but certainly not the worst.
(I also saw Carnage on DVD recently. Fun!)
Currently dreaming of building my own pinhole camera. I haven’t even managed to finish a roll with my toy TLR yet!
Anne made a grab for my beanie while we were having a coffee in Starbucks.
I’ve been watching Two Broke Girls as well, so have been very amused by the hipster jokes.
Neil is a closet hippy. We co-sleep with Anne (her cot is next to the bed with the side down) and it works well for us. We may be co-sleeping for the foreseeable. Neil is more than happy to go with the flow. If you’ve met Neil, you’ll know he takes great pride in his reputation as a classically liberal / conservative curmudgeon (otherwise known as a grumpy old man). This aspect of his parenting personality has surprised even me.
