Had a mainly cub related weekend – took the cubs out geocaching on Saturday morning – that was nice, Sunday we went to a ‘big adventure day’ at Thornthwaite cub camp. All sorts of fun activities on the go. Felix managed to set a new camp record for crate stacking (where you see how many milk crates you can stand… Read more →
We’re so proud of our Felix. Yesterday was Harrogate’s 50th Annual Mowgli Cup – and Felix’s team WON! Every year for the past 50, Cub Troops from Harrogate have been battling their wits and intelect against each other to win the cup. 3 cubs from each pack are selected to form the team, in Felix’s case ’16th Harrogate’. 8 other… Read more →
The moment of realisation, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Felix is 10! this was the very moment about 2 hours ago when he opened his main prezzy – an MP3 player. He’s a happy boy. 10 years old. Quite incredible to think back over the last 10 years. So much has happened and yet it dosent seem that long ago at… Read more →
Day 273 – FelixSurf, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Superb adventure driven weekend. After studying the weather with more than a passing interest on Friday (as I was guest writing about weather for a blog at work) I worked out that the East coast of Yorkshire was looking like one of the best chances of getting some nice weather in the… Read more →
Day 144 – Eirene, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Here’s a piccy of Eirene speaking at the Optibus event. What a fantastic night that was. (more pics here) Doors opened at 7, by 8 the place had filled up nicely. Great atmosphere. Early doors Leonie blew me away with her fantastic bag of songs. Then Eirene did some ace poems to… Read more →
Day 26 – New Bridge, Birstwith, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Apparently, this is a Pack Horse Bridge and it is the bridge which the monks used to cross whilst walking from Fountains Abbey to Bolton Abbey and vice versa. ‘Discovering’ this was the highlight of my weekend I think. Breathtakingly good day, set out for a short local walk near… Read more →
Finally stuck up my pics from our recent trip to Ireland. Took some lovely shots, including this one of Sophie, underwater at Hodson Bay Hotel swimming pool. Just before I got told “No camera’s in here Sir!” Click here to visit the ‘Athlone to Lough Kee and back again’ set of photos. Lovely weekend – Saturday, we went to Runswick… Read more →
6 months sampler / 6 months in 112 frames, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Good weekend.. Saturday was fairly chilled, went out on Saturday night for a bit to Banyan. Sunday, Fathers day – nice! As it was ‘my day’ I chose to go to the pub and watch cricket and eat a Sunday Roast. Harlow Gata was the most suitable… Read more →
, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. What a weekend. Sophie had her first birthday. Pictured here with one of those expanding ball things that she finds most amusing. We planned to have a bbq – spent the morning chopping wood (with my JCB) and getting the back yard ready which involved tip runs and very needed back yard spring clean.. I’d… Read more →
Felix Art, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Felix made this. I really like it. I love the range of stuff that’s gone into it – different paint techniques, stuck on stuff, plastic wrappers, black paper… it’s all great in my humble unbiased opinion!
Felix’s Birthday, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Felix is 8 today 🙂 just had cake and prezzies in bed. He got this Yugio Dual Disk from his uncle Simon and Aunty Maria which he is over the moon with it. Its got some ultra rare import Japanese cards on board.
Mixed bag weekend due to the terrible show from the English bid to get anywhere in the cricket. Quite a good day non the less, it was a friends birthday and he’d asked a few cricket heads to share his special day whilst watching the match. Bloody Marys for breakfast set the tone. After the cricket, we had a game… Read more →
first guinness, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Sophie’s first taste of the black stuff. (before you report me to the authorities / rspcc we only wet her lip with it). She accepted it with a gleefull look in here eyes – sign of things to come? If she’s anything like her mother and father – I guess so. That’s my pint… Read more →
First photo ever!, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. This is the first photo taken of our new baby girl Sophie. She is so sweet. This photo was about 20 – 30 mins old. Amazing.

hoodrat, originally uploaded by DragonDrop. Felix my boy is keen on getting a pet rat. I’ve just taken him to see the real things because the nice folks who have an office below mine have got some… It seems to like Felix’s hood.
