I know its been a crying age since I've posted and I vastly appreciate the emails and comments and phone calls, even, inquiring as to my negligence and, how do you call it, laziness?, in regard to this blog. There's no great interesting reason for my absence. I sort of got busy, and then when I realized how long it had been, it became daunting to know where to start, and so the days have flowed gently by while I've looked every morning antagonistically at my computer, sometimes not even checking email so that I wouldn't have to lay my eyes on my woeful and reproachful blog.
So, I'm back. I've just handed baby an ancient and well loved china doll to keep her off my computer for a moment. She is sitting singing 'dadadadada' and poking its eyes and then laughing. She is walking everywhere now, throwing herself headlong into the world, bowlegged and apparently intoxicated (not really, she just would never pass the walking in a straight line test).
The rest of them are looking for their Good Shepherd shirts so we can all go to the church cleaning day.
