Disneyland 2015

November 17th, 2015

We all went to Disneyland Paris for my birthday. Nan-Nan and Aunty Sarah joined us, and Oscar especially loved playing lego with Nan-Nan!

We got on lots of rides, and everyone did a great job of queuing.

We had an extra special breakfast, with Mickey Mouse, Tigger, and friends dropping in to say “Hi”, and play with Oscar’s toys. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend with the boys

July 21st, 2015

I looked after Oscar and Joshua all day without Mummy for the first time! We had lots of fun, plenty of food, drink and naps. And almost enough nappy changes and goes on the toilet.

We watched Iron Giant (good and exciting, but unlike Big Hero 6 failed to make Oscar cry when the robot sacrifices himself.)

And we went to my old park, which was good, although a little worse for wear! Read the rest of this entry »

Oscar standing

December 30th, 2012

Oscar is getting SO good at standing without support. He’s up to about 20 seconds and knows he can do it. He should be asleep though, really :p I guess he’s also learned to save his best tricks for bed time!

The Royal Wedding 2011

The Royal Wedding 2011

Some of Matthew’s family came down to London for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. We headed down the night before to try and find a good spot to soak up the atmosphere and be a part of the occasion.

While we were on the streets, I did my best to post updates and photos to the website.

We had lots of fun. It was really quite uncomfortable, trying to sleep in a camping chair. It got surprisingly cold in the early hours of the morning, and at about 0500 we were starting to wonder if it was a good idea. As it brightened and warmed, the crowd grew, and we all had fun. The all nighters and new comers got along, sharing experiences, in between stretching to catch a glimpse of royalty.


April 29th, 2011

It's all over. We've made it back safe, and catching up on sleep (and the parts of the wedding we couldn't see from the front line).

Sorry the updates have been late. My mobile internet stopped working when too many iPhones gathered in one place.

Yippeee to the RAF
