Yesterday, after the daily post, I discovered that my ExpressCard card reader has stopped working, probably as a result of upgrading to OSX Snow Leopard. Annoying: I had to use my old SD card reader, which glacially slow, to download photos from the camera. Sent a support request to Belkin; hopefully there is a fix.

Adrian spent a lot of time fussing and whining again. Going out for a walk with the pushchair seems to be the best cure.

We took down the last Christmas decorations. I baked a pie for dinner, with Ingrid helping me make the dough.

Ingrid then went on to make “soup” out of water and flour. And she seemed to like the taste of it, for real. Then she asked me what else she could add. Salt and ketchup were added, and then she thought some physalis would fit nicely.
