i'm a real weirdo, with some things. are you too or is it just me? for example, i don't like the lights on at this time of year, when the sun actual rises and sets close to the time we rise and set. i've got this half-baked idea that it's good for you, you know, to 'experience' the changes in light at as the sun rises and sets, and so we start our days scrabbling and squinting around in the half dark, and end them, or Claud's anyway, watching the sun set. It quiets her in a way nothing else does, and it's so soothing for us after all the rush and stress (
of trying to dress, cook and eat in the dark, and live with a weirdo).
another weirdo thing is Claud's eating. we've never forced or bribed her to eat or drink, nor castigated her for not doing so. she never had puree or spoon feeding. it's based on a weirdo theory i developed after 10 years work in an eating disorders clinic. my theory is called 'no food rules' rules. an interesting pattern emerged quite early on where she would eat very little for a week or two, then have a growth spurt, then eat stacks. she's in her not eating phase again. we like it in a weirdo kind of way cause i get into making 'tempting' food and then she doesn't eat it and we fight over who's having her leftovers for lunch the next day instead of fighting with her over her not eating it.
and, did you know you can only follow a limited number of blogs, not as in, 'gaw'd i follow all these blogs but i don't have time to read them' but as in 'you've reached your limit and can't like any more'? well it happened to me so I deleted millions of blogs from my feed, but not yours of course, and since then I've been filling up on foodie-esq blogs, and cooking from them.
i made this cake today
and this hummus
and this is the husbands new favourite
do you go through blog phases?
i've not been around long enough to know (1 year this month!) but i'm thinking, is it seasonal?
I was all into interiors blogs a couple of months ago, but now Apartment Therapy's ceaseless posting is driving me batty (f**k your 'small, cool' spam-bot style blogging) but yes I still have room in my heart/following cache dodad for THE best interiors blog ever.
i've cooled on craft blogs, and have frozen out fashion.
i just want food and funny. and perhaps weirdo. and defo books.
