Heh, it's been a long time hasn't it? Children and work will do that to you, I find. Save yourselves! Put internet first! Don't fall prey to their shackles!

Things I have lost in the last week thanks to having a small grabby child and my own incompetence filing system of moving things randomly out of his reach

* The bath plug. The only one of its kind in the house no less. Therefore for three days now I have been experimenting with the bath-plugging power of paperweights, bowls and little rubber mats with suction cups. (The mats won)

* A dragonfly barrette.

* Two library books.

* My client log sheets.

* Three pairs of socks. (Removing my socks from the box under the bed is the baby's passion. Getting a few extra minutes of meditative shut-eye is mine. A barefooted future looms).

On a related note, some items I have found myself inexplicably sharing a bed with the past few days, thanks to Matei's habit of bringing me random gifts and stuffing them under my pillow

*A plastic duck

* Two Tupperware lids

* A teddy bear wrapped bondage-style in a pair of my tights

* My favourite: a tiny wheelie suitcase

And now, on a completely separate topic, is anyone other than me yearning and contemplating ways of going to BlogHer?

I've been extremely careful to put important things out of Daniel's reach ever since I found the car keys in the bin.
Now the things he loses are mostly his own, so I'm not too bothered. Jigsaw pieces are his speciality, but I recently tilted up the sofa and found 5 of his books under there. Including a library book (luckily they don't fine you for kid's books).

To be fair to him, our house is such a cluttered tip that things go missing without his help.

I've put the keys into the bin a few times myself. It's handy being able to blame the baby for everything.

It's entirely possible. Either that or he opened up a wormhole and dropped them into an unreachable dimension.

Ironic you ask when i end that relationship! I'm up (down) this weekend, but that's to kind of "mop up" the end of this, so not being social. after that, potentially, not really :o(
