As you may recall, during the winter months DS did not like wearing wellies one bit. He'd take them off his feet at every opportunity! Yesterday I took him shoe shopping in the hope of getting him some canvas pumps suitable for wearing on a Scottish beach. No joy, none of the shops had DS's … Continue reading Happy Feet
So there was me earlier blogging about the fact I had nothing to blog about! Oh, look, another photo of DS playing with his trains, but ... who is that in the photo where DS is looking decidedly blurry? None other than one of DS's Godmothers, the only one who lives locally. She popped round … Continue reading Tuesday

The death was announced today of Harry Patch, the "Last Fighting Tommy", age 111. The news comes just one week after the death of Henry Allingham, age 113, the last survivor of the Royal Naval Air Service. The Great War was supposed to be the war to end all wars ... we will remember them.
So here's what happened ... DS went for his nap round about 12.30pm today but had difficultly in settling. At 2pm I went into him, checked his nappy for poop and tucked him up in bed. By 2.10pm he was asleep. At 3pm I took the ironing upstairs and all I could smell was the … Continue reading The One With The Exploding Nappy

Yours truly is off to the cinema in Richmond this evening to see the latest HP film. Thing is, although I've read all the books, I've only seen the 1st film and that was a number of years ago. Confident I'll be able to blag it!!!
