Still no sleep: my daughter has been ill again. I remember when they were newborns, when I could hack this sort of sleep deprivation with ease. Forget energy drinks - they should bottle whatever hormone or natural chemical it is that gets produced when you've just had a baby...
In the interests of safety, I'm avoiding operating heavy machinery, by which I mean a not-very-heavy-at-all sewing machine. This is all I've got for you: a pincushion. I've heard them referred to as biscornu, presumably because of the weird shape.
It's actually a great shape: very, um, balanced? stable? steady? I can't think of the word I'm wanting. Anyway, the long way of saying it is it doesn't need weighing down and doesn't tip over.
Take care all. Will post more translations when I'm capable of conscious thought once more.
