  • In the morning

    Predictably enough, after we put Destroyer to bed last night she came into our room at 2 in the morning, followed by La Serpiente at 4 in the morning, and nobody woke up until 8 in the morning, and there was rain in the morning. Alive, alive-o. This evening, our resolve hardened, we tried to […]

  • A long slow run

    La Serpiente came into our bedroom at twenty past six, wanting to hug and lie on me. Instead, I bundled her into the running stroller along with some fruit, some cookies, a litre of water, a hardback book, two soft toys, a change of clothes for me and her booster seat, and headed off to […]

  • Twelve Hours

    Last night, after Destroyer screamed at me because I couldn’t find Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to read to her, I fell asleep on her bed. My wife came in after an hour and woke me, and I went into our room, lay on the bed and woke up at 9 this morning, wearing the clothes […]

  • Health and safety and dancing and so much more

    Again, La Serpiente woke up way too early today, but we were prepared: we stuffed her into the running stroller and then I took her on an hour long tour of Singapore in the early morning. We got as far out as Marina Barrage, and then I slogged home with her again. La Serpiente had […]

  • A frictionless lurch

    Back in Singapore, cleaning myself up after pushing Destroyer around in the running stroller for half an hour, I was taken aback by how far away Jakarta seemed. I’d gone from a shower on the 53rd floor of a hotel, to am airport, to a plane, to a taxi, to the 23rd floor of am […]

  • An unexpectedly long run

    This morning we started late, sluggish after an evening of cheese and booze. Instead of an early morning run, we all trooped down to Nylon where the kids attempted to play ball and I accidentally had a double shot of espresso, then went home and passed out, overreacting to caffeine and struggling with atmospheric conditions. […]

  • Bad Dad’s Morning Run

    We’d told La Serpiente she would be coming on my run this morning, but I snoozed my six a.m. alarm and when she came in to my room and lay down next to me at 6:30, she might have said she wanted to come, but she was still fast asleep at seven when I got […]

  • A series of bad decisions

    This afternoon I strapped La Serpiente into the running stroller and took her outside into mild drizzle, for a run around the Marina Bay. After the last run with my daughter, where I didn’t take any water, I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. I was going to make a whole bunch of […]

  • Groggy and hot

    I had a dreadful night’s sleep; the people in the flat above us were doing woodwork until midnight, I had toothache and bunged up sinuses, and woke at random hours through the night. Surprisingly, when I was out of the flat and walking around with the kids, the cloud of ache and misery dissipated, and […]

  • Taking your children running

    La Serpiente didn’t sleep well last night, coming into our room several times and foraging for attention. I slept through my 6:30 alarm and panicked at 7, trying to wake her up, get her dressed and get us both out the door in time for the run. La Serpiente was not too helpful, demanding to […]
