Thomas is lying beside me in his little carrier, waving his arms around because I'm singing to him. I'm showing him the internet because I'm a horrible influence. He liked some of the colourful pages I found. We're wasting time until dinner because he woke up early from his nap because someone so not me tripped over the bed and yelped. Okay it was me. Lydia, Caleb and Anna went with Edward to see Aly. He came to talk to me. It was very strange, but I think he's been meaning to for a while. Edward doesn't say much, as a rule, but he said more to me this afternoon than I think he has ever. When I married his daughter he said 'don't fuck it up'. This afternoon he thanked me. He asked me how I was. Oh and he found out I'm a alcoholic. Fantastic. Yeah, he might ask you about that one, David, but he didn't seem overly concerned. And then he spent time with Thomas which was good to see. It wasn't a bad day, afterall.
Tomorrow is Lydia's birthday. We're going to do our best to be cheerful.
