A little assignment for Gregory to photograph a tasty still life. I get to vary the composition by eating them slowly...!

Where's Mirada?

Now she can climb trees unaided, Miranda loves to disappear and pretend to have gone missing. Reliant for so long on the boys to lead the way, or me to help her up, she's now making up for lost time.

Quite often now she disappears into the garden and climbs a tree and sits there reading her book. Reminds me of my childhood in the woods at Alltycnap.

Almost forgot to mention this is Gregory's photo, as he's just startedfocusing on photography in his Art GCSE module. Some more pics may follow.

Gathering dust

A remnant from my last visit to Wales to visit my Mum and Dad. This is my Mum sorting through some drawings, no doubt to show me something interesting. My parents have serious problems with throwing things out, and as a result the house is full of occasionally really interesting things. It's the knowing what to do with it all....

Model Child

Greg getting stuck in to some model making. He's made many plastic models, but this wooden model which he's been making with the aid and sponsorship of our neighbour John, is pushing him to the limits.

Any friends or relatives who'd like to give him a weeks course in craft construction skills are welcome to put themselves forward!
