pent most of the day painting a team of Blood Bowl players – the eventual result was something I was pleased with, until I took a photo to share with friends and realised when I zoomed in that there was lots of work left to do.

I threw the kids in the air, La Serpiente showed off her butterfly kick, and I managed to do three laps of a 25 metre pool. Having successfully worn them out, we went home and the girls were asleep in maybe five minutes, without complaints or fuss.
I emerged from the girls’ bedroom to find one of our friends visiting and grasping a gin and tonic. We nattered for an hour and then went out for a walk, and I ended up with my Monthly Meat – a burger with extra bacon and fried onions, and probably ate more chips than necessary.
