With the Lattitude course finishing last weekend and the beginning of term, I was working from 9am to 9pm for 10 days on the trot. Jiajia has been away in Shenzhen for a week, too. I've been leaving home before JD wakes and arriving back half an hour or so before he heads off to bed. I've felt bad about him hardly seeing his parents for over a week. I was therefore a bit nervous to read about a recent study which shows that modern working fathers spend five times longer each day with their children than they did 40 years ago. However, that apparently amounts to 25 minutes a day now, compared with 5 minutes a day in the mid 1970s! So I seem to be managing the average, even on a busy week. Phew!
JD blags yet another freebie from our nearby chemists!
