Sitting All Alone

Sheep has taken Amelia for her visit to the nursery this afternoon: from 2:30-5:00. It is now 2:50 and they left about 45 minutes ago. I think that this is already the longest I've been away from her. Sheep thought that if he took her, I'd be less upset. It does feel strange, being on my own. I should be reading MSc theses (I have three tutorial lined-up for tomorrow, in London), but I'm finding it difficult to concentrate and the quiet is strange. When was the last time I was in the house on my own? Sometime last December, I think.

Today, while I was changing an exceedingly wet nappy, I started singing this song to Amelia, to the tune of the hymm, "Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy":

"Lamb of extreme dampness, Lamb who is moist!
You need a nappy change, of that there's no choice.
Be calm for your changing, and give me I beg,
your co-op-er-ation, and don't thrash your legs."

I'm trying to keep my spirits up.
