I am not a geek (but I’m open to persuasion)

March 14th, 2011 · 6 Comments · biking, health, things to do with the kids, walking

Some are born to geekdom, others have to work at it. Despite writing software and wearing glasses, I assure you that I fall into the latter category. Here’s some proof. Until I had Oliver to encourage me I had only watched the first Star Wars movie. And I never watched Star Trek after the first […]

Good Friday 2009

April 10th, 2009 · No Comments · easter, oliver, rivington, walking

First shoes

August 3rd, 2008 · No Comments · lucy, shoes, walking

Lucy got her first proper Clarks shoes today. Her size is “3.5 G”. The selection of colours available had a touch of the “Model T” about it: she could have any colour she wanted as long as it was pink.

Walking: it’s the way forward

October 26th, 2006 · 1 Comment · first, first steps, walking

This morning before I left for work Hayley saw Oliver walk without prompting across the room for the first time. He was standing up against the coffee table and decided to go and see Mummy who was sitting against the sofa. But instead of dropping to all fours and crawling as he usually would, he […]
