Ah the indignity!

Chintz, we love you and we miss you. And thank you. God help me, I want to say more and maybe at some point I’ll be able to. Maybe the right words won’t slip away as I grasp at them but the bitter truth is that they’ll only ever be a fancier way of saying … Continue reading Chintzybling

Despicable Me

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 00:19:27 +0000

I grew up in a seaside town. Every summer, as others squeezed families into cars and headed for the ferries, we stayed put. Towards the end of the school holiday, students would arrive and pitch a tent on the greensward. They were there on behalf of the Scripture Union to run a beach mission. To … Continue reading Despicable Me

At the last contact meeting before adoption, our girls’ birth mother told them she would find them. Whatever happened, she said, she would know them by their ears. I anticipate that will require some explanation. Both girls have ear deformities which consist of a lack of cartilage in the helix of their outer ear. If … Continue reading Heart-stopping

38 degrees

Sat, 19 Jan 2013 23:23:52 +0000

P is ill. Normally indefatigable, she has been in need of slipping away to lay down and ail, leaving the kids and I staring at each other in panic. Don’t worry, I tell them, we’ll be ok. The girls are sympathetic and nod re-assuringly but they know and I know that we are sunk. Meanwhile … Continue reading 38 degrees

Snow 2

Sat, 19 Jan 2013 01:16:06 +0000

For many days now, grim-faced weathermen have been plotting the oncoming threat of snow. The TV coverage has made me begin to wonder if I have lived too long. I am gripped by deja vu – principally because I really have seen it all before. There will be pictures of cars being dug from drifts … Continue reading Snow 2

The news had been promising snow. Not just some snow but the sort of snow that brings Britain to its knees and has people hugging their pets for warmth whilst burning heirlooms in the grate. Actually, that is just “some snow”. I rushed out to take a picture of the magic white transformer of London’s … Continue reading Snow

Heresy Sunday

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 00:34:33 +0000

Each Sunday I take the girls to church. Sophia sees it as a play group. She meets her friend, O and they lie in front of a row of pews colouring in and chatting. Other mothers, sensing a budding playgroup wander over with their toddlers and then sneak away. Lessons are quickly learnt about the … Continue reading Heresy Sunday

I decided today that I need a new font. So much of my life is spent capturing my under-reasoned opinions in convoluted sentences. I have an urge to express myself in a typeface that will give the sense of sparse precision. So far, I have not found what I want. But this is the font … Continue reading Font

Eyes open

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 00:34:00 +0000

An inevitable part of fatherhood is striving to ensure that your children’s future is a bright one. Today I realised that, without a very substantial change in how the world presently works, my girls have looming out of the future at them fear and upset that they will find it almost impossible to avoid. I … Continue reading Eyes open
