Foughts and Theelings

This category is inevitable – I’m a diarist, after all.


I’ve been asked, with regard to the happy/greedy sighs that E makes while having a particularly good feed, “how do you keep your love from splooshing you away?” I think I may have given this simple answer at the time, and it’s still true: I don’t.

In Honour of December 1st
