TKOE has been resting for a few days. Half term, time off work. We should have been up in North Yorkshire, but work, weather and, as it turns out, Sylv being ill, put paid to that. So we’ve been catching up on housey things.

I’ve been going through various boxes of things which just had stuff pushed into them, mainly from 2010/11 . Anyone would think something had been going on then, given the mess everything was in, in these boxes.  In one of them, I found a skeleton screenplay Rosie had done for something. It was very dramatic, and seemed to involve lots of sighing and crying. It was also very very funny. It’s gone back in the box.

Cal’s going to be 20 on 3rd March. 20.

Oh yes, I think I’ve emailed all local blood droplet knitters, but apologies if I haven’t. If any of you are interested and willing to be part of the media event for the blood drop campaign on Friday lunchtime in Cheltenham, can you let me know by tomorrow lunchtime at the latest, earlier if possible. The mystery continues as I still don’t really know what is involved, but then mysteries are good.

And here’s a picture of this year’s first TKOE baby. The one born on 3rd Jan. He’s called Gilad (pronounced Gill-add) Aviv which means eternal joy and spring. He’s very handsome, isn’t he.




I particularly like how he’s got his fingers in his ears. Wise man.

    I should add that the Gil part of Gilad has a hard G , pronounced like a fish gill, not the name Gillian.

    Fingers in his ears, indeed, humph! :D. Anybody would think that his mother talks a lot (you should see his big sis – I don’t get a word in!)

    The good news is that he has started to occasionally sleep through the night, so we have decided to keep him.
