Six weeks old, this squidgeling, my sweet barnacle, six weeks old and going gangbusters. She has started smiling and the whole family is wasting swathes of time trying to get her to pop out her giant dimple.
But look, look at the beautiful hand-knitted blanket that arrived this week from my darling friend Sally in Switzerland. The colours are gorgeous and it is as soft as her bottom.
Hello, hola, bonjour, saluton, etc. Welcome to my blog, where I aim to explore some of the juicer chunks of domestic life. I am Rachael, a mum to three kids under six and a wife to one work-from-home solar scientist. Our working stats are three parts chaos to one part serenity and I am always trying to improve that equation. I cook, I clean, I whinge, I write. My back hurts and I possibly/probably have head lice.
