I’m looking out the 2nd-storey window, down on a young woman sitting on the garden wall, while her baby sits noisily (and cutely) in a stroller next to her on the pavement. They’ve been there several minutes. The baby’s making intermittent cooing noises– the mum’s been on her phone. After watching them a moment, I noticed that there’s a face in the window of the terrace house opposite–someone else heard the baby too! I wonder if both of us wonder why, as the child reaches for her and makes attention-getting noises, the woman only has time for her smartphone. Being posted at the window offers interesting opportunities for people-watching!
