3BT – my mouse, reminder, standing up, effortlessly

3BT

1. We get a new toy for the cats – a giant mouse for scatching and wrestling – but Lily decides it’s for her instead. She picks it up and carries it around by the ear. 2. Smoked ham always reminds me of holidays in Eastern Europe. (Ditto caraway seeds and dill.) 3. As part […]

3BT – sock, clatter/sorting, salad/coincidence

3BT

1. As I’m waking up, a sock repeatedly lands on my head followed by an excited dog. 2. The clatter of Lego is somewhere between jarring and warmly nostalgic. 2b. I purify our Lego collection by picking out all the fake Lego pieces and other random toys & whatnot that have accumulated. It’s surprising how […]

3BT – (recover), emulsion, push/production/bright, ramen

3BT

0. Lily had another of her “drunk”/episodes last night and still wasn’t right when we went to sleep. By this morning though, her neurological wobble had fixed itself and all her legs move on command again. Phew. 1. A perfect oil/vinegar emulsion. 2. To push myself on the wheel – but to feel in control […]

3BT – low/efficient, beck/buddies/view/organic, cheesecake, colours/rolag

3BT

1. The clouds are so low that they hide the hills in the distance – Yeadon, Rawdon and thereabouts. Above them, the sky is blue, but the tops of the hills are hidden from us. 1b. Ninja-ing around Ikea makes me feel efficient and nimble (and makes me fractionally less susceptible to buying nonsense). 2. […]
