Girls are in the bath after an... interesting dinner. I'm listening to them negotiate complicated social issues like who gets what toy and for how long. Now they are practicing crying, then giggling./

It was a long month, with too much work to do on the February issue followed by the hub going away for a week to teach. But we are finally to a weekend together at home with not too much extra work, and I have some raised beds to get planting in, a throw blanket to knit, and several books to finish. :)

Here's a society shot of my mum from The Age, 1954, throwing a party way back when:
