Is it any wonder with all this sleep deprivation, that I left the
Princess’s buggy behind me at the tram stop this morning? She was
a bit distressed but I reassured her that it would be there when we got
back. My faith was misplaced. Who the hell takes a 20 euro
supermarket buggy from the tram stop? Fortunately, she is not old
enough to be embarassed by her mother inquiring in neighbouring cafes
whether anyone had handed in a buggy. No, nobody had.
However, to restore your faith in human nature, let me tell you the
following heart warming tale. Outside the church we go to, there
is a group of regular beggars. The Princess and I have built up a
special relationship with one of the beggars, a very nice man, who is
always very sweet to our girl. This morning, it was perishing and
I had forgotten to bring along a hat for her highness. Our friend
was very concerned about this and insisted on giving her his hat.
I was against this for a range of reasons, some of them worthy (the
poor man will be frozen, we have lots of hats at home, we can afford
more hats), some of them distinctly less so (where has that hat been
and what is the bizarre smell?). However, my attempts at refusal
were scuppered by madam who clutched it in her little hand and clamped
it on her head. He says that we can give it back to him next
week. You will be relieved to know that he confirms that he has
another hat at home.
