The Dork Knight Returns

So here I am again.

March was my month off from here. I say that as though it was planned or premeditated, but I should come clean and admit that – like most things in my life – there was precious little planned or premeditated about it. Nothing new there, then. I moved house (I think I mentioned that before) and, as a result, didn’t have a domestic Internet connection for the best part of last month. To put it another way, I was broken down on the hard shoulder of the information superhighway. As metaphorical dilemmas go, I suppose it’s better than being online roadkill.

(Just been interrupted by Lily, Clare’s 4 year-old daughter who really should be fast asleep by now. She wants me to help her find her toy unicorn, and who am I to refuse? This is a new thing for me, but I suspect that random toy unicorn searches will become a regular part of my life. So it goes.)

Anyway, I’ll keep this brief as (a) I’m tired and my head is fuzzy, and, (b) I haven’t quite mastered the knack of picking up from where I left off after a random toy unicorn hunt.

But I’m working on it.

    It’s the things like random unicorn searches and stupid conversations at 2am in the morning that make this parenting lark fun.

    nice to have you back.

    Welcome back. I was wondering where you’d got to.

    Richard: Indeed it is, as I’m starting to find out…
