The Princess is now able to ride on the back of
Mr. WaffleÂ’s bike due to extraordinary outlay on seat and helmet. Her imperial highness is pleased to approve
this mode of transport.

The in-laws are coming on Thursday. Great excitement. I received an email from my father-in-law as follows, comments are in italics:
Reading between the pixels, things may be more than a little hectic, even with help. It may be a Freudian slip, but the lack of a mention of Princess might mean that she is becoming more attuned to the new arrivals (or just spending time at the crĂ¨che). Au contraire, madam continues to regard the new arrivals with
disdain. Yesterday I spoke to my brother and he asked after her and her views on the new arrivals. I said that she liked them. Later when I reported this conversation to herself she said in tones of great disgust “But Mummy, I DON’T like the babies.
Anyway, for what it is worth, grandma and I are getting measured for our cavalry uniforms, practicing the bugle, buying prezzies and the like. We will be ready for our gallop to the relief of the Fort, way out in the Belgian desert. Really looking forward to the visit, to do good works and drink a few beers. Beer, beer?
He thinks there will be beer? I doubt it, it will be constant baby and toddler minding duty for the royal
grandparents here at baby bootcamp.

Surely even a little beer during babysitting duty can be allowed? Have a heart…

HJB, their sufferings are about to begin. Loc, under no circumstances, they are here to work. No beer on the chain gang. Minks, most certainly.

Go girl – head for tham thar hills!
Constant listening to Radio 4 reveals that the
British are considering introducing 3 months paid paternity leave. Meanwhile, poor
Beth jacks in her job due to
pathetic maternity leave in the US. I think itÂ’s all the puritans out there. They should let more feckless catholics in. Further example of American puritanism: my
sister tells me Â“it’s back to winter hours [at work]Â… we get to start 30
minutes later every day so I’m in at 8.30 rather than 8 – except for days when
I’m late or have a 7.00 meetingÂ”. What
kind of country allows companies to schedules 7 am meetings? One thatÂ’s over imbibed
the puritan work ethic.
