It’s dropped below 10°C here which means it’s feeling very cold. The heating has been switched on in our flat and cars are already beginning to be frosted if left outside overnight.
The riots have calmed slightly; every night on television the count of burned cars drops, but the figures are still alarmingly high. Gennevilliers, a neighbouring town, has had a share of some of the violence but we are thankfully a little distance from the flashpoints.
Nathan is sleeping 6-7 hour nights. I can put him to bed at midnight and he won’t wake up until 6am. This has happened on most nights over the last week. Most colleagues at work say that we’re very lucky, as he’s only one month old. In fact, he’s one month old today. Happy first month, Nathan. I hope you keep sleeping well in your second month.
