Autumnal Popsie

Greg has been away sailing with George at Rutland, which has left me to have fun with Posie today.

I had disappeared for a call of nature, and when I returned I found Miranda knee deep in a cloud of leaves having the time of her life.

We walked from Woodfidley through Standing Hat and up the river to "Kingfisher Stoop", stopping at the Forest Park Hotel for our lunch. They had an awesome wood burner, a discoball, and a stuffed stag on the wall. The food was great and the beer was brewed just around the corner in the stables of the Balmer Lawn Hotel!

All in all a great day out.

Catch up time.

Always nice when the old folk brighten up your day with a Facetime call! This morning I managed to remember a few screengrabs as we were chatting so I'm sharing

It's not often I get a chance to make comparisons, and this is as objective as it gets.

A point in time, a notch on a belt.


Thirty Six

Lewis on the day he was Twelve, as recorded on my blog in 2010. Seems like such a long time ago, but so much has changed in the blink of an eye.

Twelve x2

Gregory, on the day of his Twelveth birthbay.


Today has been bleak, cold, grey and wintry. Did I mention wet?

So by contrast yesterday was a lot more fun. I love these sideways looks at life - as Greg and Miranda cruise (on skates and scooters) down the pier at Boscombe with the sunshine glinting on the water

Currently she's having a tea party with some chums, and there is screeching coming from the kitchen... Game On.


Miranda's version of the day differs slightly to my own naturally, although curiously we went to the same places! This is our lunch stop although I didn't have my bike with me, otherwise I could have had it serviced.

It's quite a cool cafe, the sort of place Lewis would probably tell his friends he went to "when he grows up!"

Our supper stop was at Boffi, also in Southbourne... neapolitan style pizza ...yum!

Popsie (Takeover)

Birthdays, birthdays! November the 20th is definitely the best day of the year. OBVIOUSLY! It's my birthday. Have already opened my presents in bed. A new unicorn notebook, Inline skates and a new helmet not to mention a cute unicorn pom pom!
Yesterday we went to Hengistbury Head and Mudeford to use my skates. Then after that we went to Bournemouth to skate along the front! After we go up the piers and tried the 2 penny slots And i tried to win a PINK FLUFFY UNICORN on the claw grabby thing but failed miserably! :(
Then I got a cookies and cream ice cream! after we looked at the lights and found lewi in starbucks! i really wanted a pumpkin spiced latte but I wasn't aloud!:(Then we headed home!!!

Pop sockets are the next big thing, and Miranda has a plan to make millions from designing, making and selling them!

Dad has been modelling the new range, and here he is wearing the blue glalaxy drip!

Hold Up

Sunday morning romp around Denny Wood, the weather was beautiful. Leaves were tumbling in the gentle breeze... Our walk took in various touch points and quite a few trees were climbed.

Lots of funghi out.
