The Little Daily 20.07


Those of you who don't have a dishwasher may understand what I mean when I say I was in the middle of a "doing the dishes reverie." Scrubbing breakfast off cutlery is a mind-numbing task and one survives it only by going elsewhere in one's mind. I can't tell you exactly where I had been but I was really there when my youngest son's voice broke through.

Ziggy: Mumma, I blah blah something.

Me: Mm hmmm.

Ziggy: Mumma, I cutting blah something.

Me: Okay, honey.

Ziggy: Mumma, I cutting mine something.

Me: Hang on, what? You're cutting WHAT?

Ziggy: I cutting mine hair. 

Me: Ahhhhhh!


Scissors & Hair

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    AAAHH! What kind of damage are we talking here? Emergency trip to hairdresser’s? Or just a nick? Either way, this is my BIGGEST fear with P doing the same with a pair of scissors. Even worst would be the hysterics from F if F’s hair got attacked. Yeah, I’ve spent too much time imagining the scenario already…

    PS – I do know the exact reverie and resulting conversation you mean. Guilty.

    PPS – How pleased does Ziggy look with himself? B’s clone, for sure, in this shot.
