How different from one night to the next. Tonight I am sat in Rift bar drinking my complimentary cocktail from their new menu. The music is funky and the bar isn’t too busy yet. The new menu is filled with sweet options but tonight I settled for a long Island ice tea… Matt’s favourite. Let’s get the weekend off to… Read more →
I am sat writing this in a church hall surrounded by children from the scouting movement, rehearsing for this year’s ‘Gang Show’. Sophie is stood at the front of the crowd singing her little heart out. She loves preforming so Gang Show is perfect for her. If the quality of this year’s event is the same level as previous years,… Read more →
Jay was telling me about what he needed for his next food tec lessson. Filo pastry, soy sauce and assaulted vegetables. He did make me smile.
This evening, Matt took these gorgeous pictures of himself and Annie-Mo.
On Saturday we visited the Museum Of Film and Photography in Bradford. Matt had heard of an exhibition by Joan Fotcuberta called Stranger then Fiction. We were treated to wierd and wonderful creatures created by blending different animals together then photographed. Joan would then invent a Latin name and history for the animal. The viewer was left in state of… Read more →
Sophie had a great time making a snowman today with her friends after school
Here’s a photo of the rarely seen Felixus Teenageboyikus (often abbreviated to Felix) in a relaxed state inspecting Dada’s new smart watch. It may be many years before another moment comes to photograph this fabulous creature in his natural environment.
I just did a lovely thing, I typed Felix and Jaygo into Google images. There are some really lovely pictures reminding me of great past times.
Here is a picture of Annie-Mo at church today. She is cuddling two snuggley toys.
Hurray, it’s the weekend. I have just had my hair done which means zero hair maintenance all weekend and brilliant hair, even on pyjama days. Matt is cooking lovely dishes all weekend and has said he will get up with Annie-Mo if she wakes in the night. I have nothing I need to do until Sunday except encourage Sophie to… Read more →
Mischievous things I have found Annie-Mo doing recently; Drinking the dog water through a straw. Putting all the clean towels in the bath whilst it’s filling up. Drinking the guinea pig water. Raiding the fridge and tipping all the sweetcorn on the floor then eating some of it. Raiding the spice drawer, sneaking off with a big bag of cinnamon… Read more →
I have just heard that Denise, one of my best friends who lives in South Africa is coming to visit the week before my birthday. I am so excited. It’s been ages since we have seen each other. She has never met Sophie or Annie and I have never met her husband. So much time has passed. It will be… Read more →
Here is a picture of Matt carving the gammon joint he has roasted for dinner tonight. Annie is watching carefully hoping for a titbit to nibble on prior serving. Roast gammon,roast potatoes, apple sauce,gravy,savoy cabbage,carrots and Yorkshire puddings. What a lucky family we are to have such a delicious feast prepared for us to enjoy.
Happy birthday Nana from all of us here at Dragondrop. We wish you a wonderful year of blue skies, sunshine, good bowling, interesting happenings on the strand, lovely people visiting, fantastic health and great happiness. Love you lots and lots xxxxxxxxxxxx
Annie-Mo and Elsie play a game together where Annie-Mo pats Elsie on the muzzle and Elsie pretends to bite her hand and nibbles her toes. It’s so lovely to watch them play together, like Annie is a puppy and Elsie is the mama dog. I always keep an eye on them both though as I wouldn’t want either of them… Read more →
