I had a lovely evening yesterday. Kate was here because she is going to the ballet tonight with a friend, and Kelsie came round with baby Joseph. He is nearly 1 and is a charmer. He crawled round the floor, patted the dog, who was not at all sure that this was a good thing, and generally was a perfect guest.
After he had gone home to bed another friend of Nic's came round with her 9 week old, Ellie, who was equally charming. Although asleep when she arrived she took with great good nature being woken up and handed round everyone.
After all the babies had gone Kate and I watched penguins on Frozen Planet and had a glass of wine. How civilised!
