Some time ago, I wrote a post about how, with the birth of my first and so far only child, any broodiness had left this weary body of mine completely.

I can’t quite decide which caption to deem appropriate for this illustrious image of a sitting room. ‘When in Venice…’? Or what about an Alice quote: ‘Curiouser and curiouser.’ Taste, in this case, is definitely a matter of opinion.
