Song time at Toy Library is a favourite of Annie’s. Throughout the day she will often continue singing. She made me laugh with her version of three currant buns. Normally they are in a bakers shop but Annie sings, “Three currant buns in a bacon shop”. What a little cutie.
I am watching the new Superman film with Jaygo. We watch an installment every night after I have put Sophie to bed. Tonight the baddies attacked. As Jay and I cowered on the sofa he whispered to me, ‘ do you know where they should hide?’ ‘No’, I whispered back, ‘where?’ ‘In the genitals room.’ ‘What?’ I gasped. He looked… Read more →
My Godson is an absolute poppet and the apple of his Godmother’s eye. However he like many little boys (and some big) does have some trouble remembering to lift the seat when he uses the bathroom. Obviously this isn’t such a pleasant situation for the ladies of the house and when the time came to buy a new seat his… Read more →
I have been sat on the sofa in the front room roaring with laughter whilst Felix regaled me with funny stories from his sleep over last night. I feel so lucky that he likes to chat with me and that we can share a laugh together. It’s such a lovely feeling being able to laugh with your children. Its also… Read more →
Walking down the paint isle in DIY shops can’t help but make you smile a bit when you’re called Matt. A whole selection of objects with my name in big letters, plastered on the front of them.

This helped the adults know who was who and made the little ones feel a bit special. Then, they made party bags; Followed by a round of… Read more →
I’ve seen my fair share of optical illusions before. I’ve not seen one as good as this for a while though.. This is a static image – it’s not animated in any way. That’s your head doing that, that is.
I tried one of these – the taste – somewhere between battery acid and 1000 lemons. Awful level set to extreme hostile. Naturally, I wanted to let my kids experience them…Here’s the video of them attempting the Sour Challenge.
Apparently, A DragonDrop Adventure Shirt has already been on TV during a cricket match in India when it’s wearer, Jim, was carried around the ground at shoulder height for being the only non Indian in the ground. Or so I’m told. Last night, a DragonDrop Adventure Shirt made it onto Mainstream British TV with an appearance for a minute or so of Channel… Read more →
Eirene just sent me this photo of Sophie trying on Jaygo’s glasses. Made me laugh. Popped in to see Jaygo last night by the way – good spirits. Eirene and I had some intravenous medicines training – a life skill I never expected to acquire. I went in again this morning – he’s had a good, relatively peaceful night by… Read more →
