This week’s highlights have included…

Reading
This blog post about a retrospective view of parenting.
Victoria Coren Mitchell’s Guardian column on feminism.
This blog post about writing by Don Miller – I love the diving analogy. Really resonates with me. I feel like I am constantly resurfacing.

Writing
About time out (for parents, coming to a blog near you on Sunday) and time in (for children, here).

Watching
Exposure: When Pregnant Women Drink. Wow. Still processing this one. Great programme. Has started us thinking about if/how we could get an FASD assessment for Joanna and Charlotte.
A Grand Designs ‘community build’ and wondering how on earth the parents managed it.
Daffodils and crocuses appearing in our garden. Spring!
Joanna starting to relax as she has finally settled into her class after six months of ‘turbulent’ behaviour. Me and the headteacher keep having little ‘What on earth has changed? Let’s never change anything again!’ conversations. Hooray!

Listening to
The Art Of Celebration by Rend Collective. Excellent album. (New one out next week.)
The News Quiz.
This podcast about blogging.
This new podcast from Gretchen ‘Happiness Project’ Rubin.

Eating
Fajitas. Noodles. Tomato soup. Apples and cheese. All the good stuff from this blog post at once. (Whoops.) Also frozen Curly Wurlys. Hmm.

…and I’m also thankful for
Ali Edwards’ One Little Word class (my word this year is create).
