As you'll know if you follow me on Facebook I've been home alone this week, looking after the kids, while Libby has been back in the UK. Normally when Libby travels she takes Tiggy (our one year old) with her, but this time she left her behind. We weren't entirely sure how it would go – this is the first time she's been away from Libby for more than a few hours – but we decided that a) Tiggy was old enough to stay, and b) Libby deserved a break, not least because she had loads of work to get through before heading home again this weekend.
Anyway, it's been fine, though tiring, and as Libby gets back on Saturday I'm sure we're going to survive. Today though has been hellish. Tiggy has been fine – she's pottered around, ate loads, and generally done her own thing. Fin (5) and Tabby (3) on the other hand have been terrible: they've cut each other's hair, broken things, fought like cats and dogs ... you get the idea.
Anyway, my reason for mentioning all that is because it influenced my choice of image today: something quiet, simple, non-contentious and calm – quite the opposite of my experiences today :)
And in case you're wondering, it's some netting, hanging from the underside of Blackpool's North Pier.
