Like most well-read people, I've been aware for a while of the campaign to raise awareness of the presence of dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) in the environment. If you have any interest in environmental issues, and you haven't come across the DHMO home page before, then I strongly recommend you read some of the articles they have there.

One that was new to me this time was DHMO in the dairy industry. If you're concerned about the presence of DHMO in the milk you buy, you'll be pleased to hear that most groceries now stock a range of DHMO-free milk products.

My childminder met me at the door, and explained that she had a funeral to go to, so she couldn't take Marianne on Thursday. My heart sank; I had meetings planned, it's a hard week, and Steven isn't in a position to easily take a day off either. Was there another way?

So I rang Caroline, who has just started maternity leave. "How would you like to, um, practice?" Caroline knows Marianne well enough, though a whole day may be rather challenging. We'll see. And the business of looking after a three-year old is quite different (and much less exhausting) than looking after a tiny baby. So she's been left with a house full of toys and various phone numbers in case of emergencies. I'm sure they'll have a great time.

I got the idea for this from Nigel E Richardson. The advantage of Blogger over traditional weblogs is that you can update it from anywhere you can get web access. Which means I can post things to my website as the mood strikes me.

Whether I will or not is another matter. We'll see.
