Pippa Laureate

Pip won the Southwark Council Visualise competition – poetry section (adult). She’s just got back from the awards ceremony with her £200. Well done Pip!

Sally's 60th in Perugia

Despite the Lambeth Registrar’s best efforts, we finally got a birth certificate for Indie and Pip went directly to Petty France for an express passport application. Indie was interviewed to determine her suitability for British citizenship, a passport photo taken in the split-second between Pip removing her supporting hand, and Indie’s head rolling off to […]


We’re still here! Indie’s getting exactly as much attention as Laurie ever did, but we’ve had to sacrifice a few of the things we used to do in our spare time. Like everything, including updating this site.

Indie’s doing well – gaining 3 oz a week which apparently is good, although […]

Now you can see how big it is!

I’ve added some of Griff’s pictures of the Cobbler.

Now you can see how big the Western summit actually is – we’re standing on top waving on the left.? My wideangle lens (right) might take nice landscapes, but you don’t always get much sense of scale.


And here’s me threading myself, my (rather unnecessary) bag of […]


On Saturday Griff and I swapped Amy and Laurie for Ol and Amanda, and climbed the three peaks of the Cobbler in the Arrochar Alps in Scotland.


We had glorious weather, and hence were not alone on the walk, to Ol’s disgust. Still, by the time we’d scrambled to the top of the Western […]

Amy & Laurie Spot The Difference

We spent this weekend in Edinburgh with Griff and Clare, and Amelia and Skye. We travelled by train, and Laurie was no problem at all. Coming back we’d got some cheap first-class tickets, which was just as well as our 4pm train couldn’t be started, and the 5pm was delayed due to a bridge-bash by […]

Outlook: Smiles

Laurie’s smiling a lot more now. If we’re lucky. See!



Wideangle Fun

Look at this little chubster!


Easter Bunny In Hat

We spent the long Easter weekend in Kent, with a big crowd of the usual suspects.


Jo and I took his speedboat out for a spin, and broke down, needing an embarrassing tow back to the very public slipway at Sandwich. Our spirits never flagged until we ran out of beer.


We walked […]

The Monopoly pub-crawlers crawl again!

Well, it was Barn’s B’day on Tuesday. We went up Big Ben for the 11 o’clock strike (Laurie went to Mum’s office), we had lunch in Portcullis House then Tony, Liz, Laurie, Barn and I went to Gordon’s wine bar (and chatted to a member of staff who was 86 years old!) and we walked […]
