365:89 1 in 45 is a fat old bird with a camera[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellin%27s_law]Hellin’s Law[/url] is the principle that one in about 89 natural pregnancies ends in the birth of twins, triplets once in 89 squared births, and quadruplets once in 89 cubed births.

I checked the maths with the mathematician in the house and that apparently makes me one in 45. Common as muck.He tells me not so common as he, one of 44 in every 45. I take comfort from the fact that I remain one a million from having had my tonsils removed twice. Those are the official stats – I maintain however that I, like everyone else, am in fact unique.

Being so unique, I really ought to be documented but as we know, I am[i] not brave[/i] about camera lenses or selfies. I got away with the two fat ladies selfie I had planned for yesterday, so here I am today, one in 45 – my twin is not to hand, so I settled for a reflection of me.

I think I may be becoming braver?

Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
