Watching herself

You can turn the screen round on the wee camera so that you can see yourself being videoed. Alex thought this was fascinating.

This is not brocolli

More photos of Mum's fabulous vegetables can be found here.

And here are Mum's own photos of her garden, jam and hedgehog!

Alex walks with Ark

Once again I fail to remember that you can't turn a video camera round to get tall shots. Never mind, just tilt your head and watch Alex walk! She is very attached to that Ark bag today.

First Real Sandals


Today I bought Alex her first real pair of shoes. Well, they're sandals really but its pretty much the same thing. She had her feet measured again just to double check and she is indeed a 3.5/G.

We were looking for shoes to go with the blue dress we bought for Adam and Kinga's wedding. I asked the assistant in Clarkes to bring us all the shoes that were white, cream, blue or even light brown. There were three styles. Everything else was pink.

A happy Alex.


Tara looks on in concern.


Alex could not be happier without her head exploding.

The Dark Is Rising Film

I didn't think the international trailer looked good but the US trailer is truly horrendous.
