In the Apple store 5 minutes and I’m all like, “could I do all my work on an iPad?”

It’s such a strange moment. One day you’re suddenly having conversations with your children.

So late it’s almost early.
A giant storm just passed over us.
With such intensity,
That I thought of a ship in a storm.
It seemed to be testing our strength.
“Batten down the hatches.”
And even now, it’s passing.
Maybe now, i can sleep.
Kids slept straight through,
Of course!

Thus we never see the true state of our condition till it is illustrated to us by its contraries, nor know how to value what we enjoy, but by the want of it

This quote is in the back of one of the kid’s picture books called “A bit lost”. Which feels pertinent at the moment.

Apple Music has added “Get Up!” Mix, an upbeat selection, which I’m starting the day with. Started well so far…

  • We went out to a park today, sat on a mat in the sun and had snacks. Elise was brave on her scooter!
  • It’s still tough even though we can go out, my wife has a photo of me on my phone with the youngest copying me, so I’ve tried to stay off it today. I would just like a break.
