Is Anybody Still There?

Sorry everybody (if there’s anyone still visiting). There hasn’t been a post for nearly a month.

It’s not that we’ve stopped doing anything, but two things have happened recently – we’ve started feeding Laurie ‘food’, which takes more time than I thought possible, and I’ve got a shiny new PC with Vista as the operating system. Which looks great, but doesn’t support any of the tools we use to blog or edit photos.

Oh, and Pip’s discovered Facebook.? That also takes more time than I thought possible.
Still, we’re getting there, so normal service will resume soon. If you’re still there, that is.

The blue dress

I thought I’d get Laurie modelling this morning. Mum’s friend Julia got her this dress.
Oh and did we mention Laurie can now sit up!

 

Abbey girls (+ bump & babies) reunion

Sian was back from Dubai briefly so we all went to her house to see her and her 6 month bump. She is working as a lawyer in Dubai and will have the baby there then come home for her not very generous maternity.
We were missing Clair but otherwise not a bad turnout! V’s boys were there, Myles is also 6 months.

 

Visit to Great Granny

We took Laurie to see her Great Granny as she hadn’t seen her since the Christening. Granny was impressed with her chubbiness. Laurie also liked Simba the Irish Setter.

This? explains a lot.

My First Father’s Day

It was Laurie’s (and my) first Father’s Day yesterday. She got me a chocolate orang utan, and I had it in bed with a cup of tea.

This being my new life, though, and not my old life, I only had a sip of the tea, and the ape’s knee-cap, before heading out for more marathon training – this time I ran to the Ark Royal and back.

Orange mush

Well Laurie is 6 months tomorrow and therefore we have started to feed her solids in her Ikea highchair (as of yesterday).
I got a bit enthusiastic today and decided after a lunch of banana and rice to go for a tester tea of sweet potato – she seemed to enjoy it.


I have lots of ice cube trays in the freezer with courgette, carrot and pear too.
It’s a whole new adventure! A messy one.

 

Southwark babes

Laurie has some very cute local friends – starting with back row we have Jacob, Leo and Mia. Front row is Laurie, Noa and Emily.
We were hanging out in one of the Mum’s back gardens with a bottle of wine – it’s good this life.


Laurie started swimming lessons last week and is loving it.
I’m off to see Graham Norton Show tonight so you might see me on TV!

 

More Pictures

Grandpa and Grandmarnier Moss have posted some of their photos from the holiday. Here are Pip and I getting ready to change a nappy.

New Look

I’ve updated the blog (as you can see). Any problems, let me know.

I’m using a.m. griffin’s Skittlish theme on WordPress 2.2, for the geeks amongst you.
