Living in a cardboard box...

...well, not quite but there are umpty-twenty cardboard boxes of stuff littering our flat. Why such chaos? Indeed we are moving to a new house on Friday. Very exciting, of course, if a little hectic. Don't say the word 'stress', okay?

I'm having to do things like clean the inside of the oven (generally a no no) while trying to stop Mr Hugh licking the TV screen. Normal blog service should resume in weeks to come.

Silence please

Outside Mr Hugh naps in the pram while bus brakes squeal and children yell in the park. Inside, when he's napping in the cot, I tip toe about the hall. I don't flick light switches, I ease them backwards as if they were mini see-saws.

This may be pathetic, but I do it anyway.
