The Secret Diary of a 14 Month Old (Part 20)

MONDAY
Cried at dinner. No way was I putting that muck in my mouth. No chance. Then they tricked me into tasting a bit and do you know what? Fucking lovely it was. So tasty I screamed when there was none left.

TUESDAY
Needed a poo all day but managed to save it till bathtime. Absolute carnage. It's worth sitting in your own filth just to see the look on their faces.

WEDNESDAY
Fell over today. Didn't hurt in the slightest but big people made a fuss so thought I'd better cry.

THURSDAY
Woke up in my cot last night standing up, crying. Not sure what I was trying to achieve. Pretty embarrassing all round really.

FRIDAY
Finally getting the hang of this crawling lark. I can go anywhere. It's amazing.

SATURDAY
Crawled off a step today, right into the bins. Fucking terrible. My hands were still trying to crawl as I was falling. Not sure this mode of transport is for me. Might have a go at that bum shuffling thing. Looks safer.

SUNDAY
Went to a party but cried till we left early. Laughed all the way home. Nobody else joined in.

The Dior Runway Bag was the first big accessory debut of the post-Raf Simons era at Dior, and I was, admittedly, a little suspicious of it. That was at least partly because of my immense affection for the bags created during Simons's tenure at the legendary French design house and sadness over his voluntary departure, but replica handbags it was also motivated by the bag's proportions and how out of place it seemed with current trends. A couple months on, it's starting to grow on me. The bag, as you can see, is essentially a Lady Dior Bag made squat and long, which is similar prada outlet uk to how Jean-Paul Gaultier changed the proportions of the Birkin to create the JPG Shoulder Birkin during his time at Hermes. Instead of converting the top handles into longer shoulder straps, though, the Runway Bag employs a separate, wide shoulder strap that is long enough to make the bag a true shoulder bag, but not long enough for shoulder carry. That strap, and the fact that the top cheap louis vuitton handles fold down entirely to the bag's sides, are what have brought me around. The shape still feels a little awkward to me, likely because no one else is doing it right now, but there's something to be said for a willingness to get away from the saddle bags and chain-strap flap bags that have dominated store shelves for seasons. Sometimes a new longchamp sale thing only feels weird until your eyes get used to it, but sometimes that apprehension persists forever-the only way to know which way I'll ultimately go on the Runway Bag is to wait and see, but the ultra-embellished versions available now are gorgeous to look at.

The Time I Screamed at my Kids

Before my kids arrived I swore I’d never shout at them. But choosing how to approach parenthood before your kids are born is like a caterpillar deciding what kind of butterfly they’re gonna be while they’re still building the cocoon. ‘I’ll still do loads of charity work, of course. And I’ll be REALLY nice to moths too, even though they’ll probably hate me because I’ll be so bloody gorgeous.’ Theory and reality are like sugar and shit. I’ve raised my voice to my kids more times than I can count. Often just to shout ‘STOP SHOUTING!’ which I’m aware doesn’t set a great example. ‘You should NEVER shout at your kids.’ And that’s fine. In theory. Because everything’s fine in theory. The Slimfast diet is a piece of piss until day two when you’ve had three hours sleep and someone offers you a Wagon Wheel. Of course, I never WANT to shout at them. I love them more than words can describe. But those you love are also the ones blessed with the innate ability to boil your piss q

The Time I Smeared Shit on the Duvet

My wife and I developed our parenting systems through trial and error. One of the earliest rules we’d introduced was that if it was after 5am and one of the babies became unsettled, we wouldn’t waste our time trying to get them back down in their cot - we’d just bring them in with us. After a nice cuddle in our bed, they’d normally settle back down, barring the occasional impromptu fanny gouge or affable bollock kick. (Babies are the most violent sleepers on the planet, easily capable of committing GBH in the middle of reaching for their dummy.) Our twins were six months old. I was fast asleep. At least, the deepest sleep you can get once your kids arrive. My pre-kids sleep used to be the nocturnal equivalent of deep sea diving. Nowadays I’m lucky if I can submerge my toes in a puddle. Early on, my sleep was lighter than a Ryvita biscuit who’d been having it off with a helium canister they’d met on Tinder. Everything woke me up. Some nights I’d just lie there, bewi

We Have a Winner!

Ladies and gentlemen - some news! One recipient of my newsletter is now the 'lucky' (ahem) winner of an exclusive gig from me IN THEIR HOUSE! And that person is... Lyn Morter!  Well done, Lyn! (Btw, if anyone from  Ofcom  is reading, you can check the legitimacy of this result via the  Facebook Live video  I did last week.) When I informed Lyn that she'd won she simply said, 'I've never heard of you' and 'How did you get my phone number?' so I'm sure that will be a great gig for everyone. (Only joking. She was thrilled.) Thanks to all of you for entering. But what now, Sam?  I hear you screaming at your smartphones. Well, I'll be taking things a wee bit easier through August, spending some much needed time with my family after all the touring. But just like that former Governor of California of Austrian descent, I'LL BE BACK (sorry) in September with more blogs, videos and general waffle.  I'm also heading b
