Three days in LA sans baby or baby momma. When the cat's away, the mice just potter around running errands and meeting the odd friend for coffee.

Things seemingly have moved on since the last worst week yet. A fresh wave of hope. Will it last? Who knows? And perhaps who cares?

Hasn't been a good week. Didn't have a whole lot I wanted to say, but just wanted to say something to know I'm still here :)

Theme for this week - This too shall pass. Bit of a self-pitying downer to be honest, so listen at your own peril.

Any conflicts have been put to one side. Eri continues to be an amazing Mum and parenting partner. As my schedule sees me away most of the time.

Froggie is a week old. And without wishing to tempt fate, it's been a smooth transition and Eri's been an amazing Mum :)

Our baby is born, and an oddly happy, content, peace has fallen. Things certainly seems to have changed in my head.

A lot of the same sentiments coming up, but as I finish the somewhat nebulous Brave New World, I am closer than ever to living my own.

With around three weeks 'til Froggie thoughts are inspired by Mark Manson's blog, and I have an interesting conversation with the young father driving my Lyft.

Plenty of thoughts, many inspired by the book I've been reading on happiness, this week. A sense of hope, but a sense of conflict too. Such has been my life perhaps for six months now.
