I decided I would stay in bed 5 minutes longer to cuddle this little face. She loves to come into the room, bright and early, clamber onto bed and cuddle. I usually just get up and stumble all over the room to try and get ready for work. But I’m glad I have constant reminders to hug my baby as much as I can before she gets to a stage where she says “Ok enough!” to me when I hug her. (Yes, Allegra does that to me now!).
I also finished my first New York Times Crossword Puzzle, with dismal results. But because I did finish it, albeit with quite a lot of help, I realised some tips to keep in mind when attempting this confounding exercise:
- The answer can be more than one word; and
- Even though the New York Times Crossword Puzzle has this reputation for being super difficult, sometimes the answer is really simple. So simple, that you would roll your eyes and kick yourself for not guessing right away.
Also, I learned about a Chinese philosopher named Zhuang Zi because of a colleague who studied Philosophy in University. He is her favourite philosopher because his writings are in beautiful story form.
I learned this quote today from Cher’s mother while watching Cher on the Graham Norton Show:
“If it won’t matter in 5 years, it doesn’t matter.”
We also planned a superlastminute trip to Malaysia for this weekend. Exhilarating and oddly satisfying to get everything booked and arranged in such a short period of time.
Looking forward to no jams on the causeway, shopping and food!
