Sorry for the lack of posts lately... have been having major problems with T*scali... now using Bulldog, all seems back to normal again. Baby E is teething like mad - has a little shard of tooth poking through at the bottom, but not coming through any more than that yet. She's waking up twice overnight now (has always slept through since about 3 months), which is pretty painful for mum I can tell you.

Am currently reading 'On Beauty' by Zadie Smith, am about halfway through and it's brilliant. The characters are really life-like and distinctive, and the way it's written is good, you can see how she's matured since White Teeth. I'm a bit of a sucker for name-dropping of books in other books - in the prologue to this one, Zadie Smith mentions that she loves Simon Schama's book about Rembrandt, which I now feel obliged to read. Am I the only person who feels secretly jealous of Zadie Smith? She's only a year older than me, she went to Cambridge (I think) and has had 3 novels published, the first of which was made into a TV series, and the most recent one is up for the Orange Prize.

Anyway.. should go as baby E is a bit whingey.....
