When Santa Claus came to town
We went op shopping today, the kids and I. Brighid persistently requested we buy another copy of Sleeping Beauty. I was more interested in buying her the picture of Tabitha Twitchett. Op shops are good. Low stakes so less intensive arguments. We bought both. I also bought a packet of about four metres of blue fabric for $2. I hope I turn out to use it. It is nice and possibly sensible, rather than flamboyant and gorgeous.
Most of my recent vehemence has faded before I could articulate it. But this week's Listener has a good article on Health At Every Size and this post in response to that article, and the comments afterwards, are also worth a look.
