Baby Love

17 Apr

Forgive the babygro - I was a new Mum; I bleached everything

Tory Boy is home for the weekend; hooray!  We haven’t seen him since January.  He has a head of curls that would make  Shirley Temple See full size image  weep with envy.  I don’t know how the people he doorsteps can take him seriously.  He is going out canvassing with the local prospective MP today; the people of Stockport will probably beat him up for that fuzz.  He is getting a hair cut tomorrow; I promise before and after photos.

I use the term ‘home for the weekend’ very loosely, of course.  He was out canvassing in Lancaster all yesterday and expected to get in about midnight; then he phoned to say he would be home at seven, which he was, for half an hour; two friends picked him up and returned him to our care around eleven, and he went straight to bed.  As I mentioned, he will be out all day today.  It is his birthday tomorrow and he plans to sleep all day, then he’s back to uni first thing Monday morning, unless I can tempt him to stay by cooking his favourite meal.

The menu this weekend is as follows: a choice of crumpets or pancakes for breakfast; roast lamb with all the trimmings tonight; lobster tomorrow; whatever lunch he wants if he is here; mince and pasta on Monday if he stays.  The last one is a much tastier meal than it sounds and TB loves it.



Yesterday’s prompt was to write about a memory provoked by a smell.


My Babies


I miss my children as babies

They would make a commotion

Reek of baby lotion

Pass many a motion

Inspire devotion


Before neglecting them

I would throw myself

In the Arctic Ocean


They let me feel

The best emotion:

Unpolluted love

      I like him bald and in nappies.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
