Some pictures Lucy took with her new camera...

Lucy got a digital camera for her birthday and has been practising with it. My favourite pictures are the ones she took of herself - but the ones of the bikes are cool too. Then we went to the farm today so there are some of the Llamas and goats.

Lucy's 5th Birthday

Lucy's had her 5th birthday on Saturday. She got a huge bicycle with 18" wheels and she practised riding it in the bike on Sunday - and she's really fast! Granny Mo & Grandad John came to give her party more wizzbang though Lucy mostly ignored the party tea in favour of a pot of coleslaw.

Swimming in the sea for the first time this year on Saturday!

4.45 on Friday Afternoon

I'm doing the Race For Life again this Sunday - should be interesting as I haven't been able to train as my hip keeps giving me grief. Still going to do it though - it's supposed to be raining so that should make it extra fun!

End of half term week - we have to buy Lucy's new bike tomorrow for her Birthday. Most other presents are stored safely. She's going to get a wopping great 16" wheel bike this time - so that should scare her senseless!

Sand Igloos

Just back from Easter holidays in France. We had lovely weather for a change and did at least 3 beach visits. Ed & Lucy mowed a track round the "orchard" so we could do running too. Managed to get some barbeques and some french speaking in. Notes to self - don't try St Lo ever again as its broing and cold. On the last day we visited the Cherbourg equivalent of Sea Life Centre - possibly called Cite De Mer (??) anyway - gurt big submarine . We had to walk round one at a time as children under 6 weren't allowed in - but it was a BIG SUBMARINE - Le Redoubtable (???possibly - maybe - something like that).

Award winning Easter Garden

Lucy won a prize for her Easter Garden. Jolly good thing too since we spent all of last weekend raiding the recycling bin and painting things.

Tiger, the fire & Lucy

Lit the fire for the first time yesterday. It sent Lucy to sleep - Tiger was fascinated and Sweep hid under the bed :)

ice skating and pink bunnies

Eddie's birthday so we had a go at Ice skating - we managed to keep on our feet!

now Lucy has been face painted as a bunny (Snazaroo face paints from Southsea - we bought them yesterday - and she knocked over a pot of posh grpahite pencils in the artist shop - erk)

Most of the house is boxed up - and either at the skip or the charity shop - nearly ready to move!

Jesus its windy

Seriously windy today

My scooter got blown over in the wind and I rode to work at about 20 mph. The fence is blown down.

Sky+ has joined the Parker household. Fantastical. I can record Neighbours forever and watch it when I get home from work.

Fancy challenging me to a game of Go (or anything else) - then go to and challenge "seosage" to a game of anything ;P - you know I'll beat ya
