Five things: Thursday December 19th

1. Hello. Hello!

2. As a small handful of people noticed (and I am very glad it wasn’t more, I couldn’t stand to think there are many still out there, still checking whether I’ve written anything, only to find I haven’t, still) the blog went down for a while – we’ve got it back up, though it still needs a lot of love and quite a bit of rejigging if I’m going to continue to have it, which I’ve set aside as a task for my beloved and I over the the Christmas holiday. Happy Christmas, darling!

3. We have moved back to San Francisco, which is nice for lots of reasons, but mainly, obviously, because the background of the blog is finally correct. Which is clearly among the most sane reasons possible to move your family across the world.

4. Programmes I have watched on American television and immediately feared for the sanity of humanity: “Buying nude” (in which nudists search for houses to be nude in, in the nude. And “Best Funeral EVER” which is precisely as tasteful as it sounds.

5. At the age of almost-two, Doozer has just learned to play the harmonica and is busy composing original works. So far he can play “The Really Long Song”, “The Song The Daddy Likes” and “The Last Song, Seriously, Because It Really Is Teatime Now, and The Harmonica Is Not a Fork.”

  1. Welcome back to the land of the crazy. Glad to see you!

    PS: I’m visiting SF in February. Perhaps a coffee or cocktail?

  2. I’m one of them. I have no idea why, I like reading blogs.

    Doozer is practising for his US life, I see, the next thing you know, he’ll be asking to live in the bayou.

  3. Anna, I have my list of ‘blog favourites’ in my feed reader, and yours was one of the earliest entries. So many have come and gone; I’m glad yours remains. As ever, I enjoy reading your writing.

  4. It’s a very good age, in between learning to talk and going to school. Engaging.

  5. * I read! I check every few days. Nice to see you posting again (I just figured you got busy.)

    * “Buying Naked.” ;)

  6. Welcome back to this side of the pond! San Francisco is lovely. But I woulnd’t want to drive a stick-shift there. Enjoy the hills, and the changable weather. And do try some Russian food there. It’s a lot more than just borscht. Sigh, I miss the Russian deli where we used to get deep fried pirozhki….

This is a little red boat. Little, red, and boaty.

I still post. Occasionally. Honest, I do.
