3BT – conversation, waiting for him, contented

3BT

1. Our conversation is, as usual, at 90mph and all over the place. Walking down Eleanor, we talk about drawing techniques; along Thornhill, we cover telekinesis and Yorkshire impressions of people from Star Wars; as we duck back along the top of the quarry, we talk about religion; and through (what we call) the old […]

3BT – winter chores, taut, more than we think/found, I heart our long sofa

3BT

Our friend R’s lovely dog M died quite suddenly yesterday. Everyone loved M: he was a gentle giant, with just the softest ears (I regularly enjoyed stroking them).

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 […]
