The Sunday Serving
It’s been one of those days. My intention was to write the Sunday Serving after the 10:45 feed. That didn’t happen.

I need to start writing the Sunday Serving on Saturday.

Hidden dangers of sign language – I enjoyed this entry on the Daddy by Default blog on being careful with baby sign language, as you never know how people might interpret it (especially if you live in LA). I’m planning to start Signing classes at 6 months with Baby, but I’ll be sure to keep my boogie swipe separate from my choo choo trains.

Secret weddings – In honour of my being back into shooting weddings, here is a nice little selection of stories from yesterday’s Guardian about people who married in secret.
