Boxing day

We have all been out for boxing day walk to Bittern Bump. Hannah is resplendent in her new hat and her new Canada top. She has had so many lovely presents and so many lovely relatives here at once, she is practically on the ceiling!

Hannah the red,nosed reindeer

Yes, she has a cold just in time for Christmas :(. Hopefully she will be better in time for the big day itself.

Santa sack

This in't quite what it's meant for... but it's fun!

Christmas tree

Hannah has been to see the Christmas lights in Ely. She was entranced!

After the party

We have been to Tomtom's party! Hannah is now very tired... But she's not going to give up her balloon without a fight!

Pony goes to Pizza Express

Hannah got her first My Little Pony for her birthday, and it is very popular. We are having a lovely birthday dinner in Pizza Express and Pony has come too!

2 today!

Happy birthday Hannah!

Hands, knees and...

Hannah has had a lovely time at Mia's birthday party at Soham Soft Play. Here is a nice picture of her hands and her stripey knees...

Here is a little witch on her way to the halloween party!

Bouncing in the dark.

Slightly surreal :)

Watching the diggers

There is a lot of digging going on at Kingfishers Bridge today. Hannah is fascinated. (Minstrel is less impressed though.)

The best bit of baking...

... is licking the bowl out, of course. It took Hannah about 1 second to realise this!

Hannah twirls her finger in her hair when she's sleepy, leaving the most dreadful knots and tangles. This is an especially good one :)

Amelie's party

Amelie is 2! And Hannah is having a lovely time at the party. Bouncy castle popular, as always :)

Hannah's first table tennis.

Grandma and Grandad have turned their conservatory into a table tennis emporium. Hannah is getting the idea... slowly...

Hannah is enjoying herself a lot!

Hannah being Jonny

Hannah loves copying! Here she is down on the floor with baby Jonny, trying to be just like him. Jonny enjoyed it too!

Feeding the sheep

We're having a lovely day out with Uncle Gareth at Odd's Farm Park in High Wycombe. Hannah loves feeding the goats and sheep and there is even sheep racing!

Friday, August 29, 2008


Hannah is very pleased with having her very own bed in the hotel! She's got herself and Floppy Bear ready for bed straight away!

Hannah on a haystack

We've been looking at the bales of hay ever since harvest began. So Hannah was very excited to sit on one! (I wanted to go up myself, but I'm too heavy for daddy to lift :))


We have finally fitted Hannah's bike seat and gone for a little ride! Hannah loved it and shouted 'Hannah going very fast!'

New toy!

Ok, this has nothing to do with Hannah, but I've just bought myself a new violin and I'm very excited! Actually, it is slightly to do with Hannah, as she can have my old one now :). Also dropped viola off for repairs. Hannah is at nursery, so I shall now spend all day playing the violin!

A weekend off!

Hannah is going to Granny and Grandad's for the weekend. Here she is in the car with her Charlie and Lola suitcase and Floppy Bear. 'Hannah love Floppy Bear so much' keeps wafting over from the back seat - so cute!

Erin, Mia and Hannah

The three girls had a lovely run around at the park this morning. Now the three mummies are exhausted!

Hannah on a swing

Notice anything? It's not a baby swing! Hannah is very very pleased with herself!

Running around in the woods

We've come to play in the little forest near Mildenhall. Ice cream, motorbikes and lots of space to run around!

Paper shoes

Making your own shoes - what a great way to pass a rainy afternoon! And on the subject of passing... I think Hannah can be considered toilet trained! She is completely dry now, including during her daytime sleep (but not at night - that takes longer). She has even done her poo on the toilet today - sorry if that's tmi, but it's very important! :).

Wendy House

Hannah has got a new Wendy house. She and baby are having a nice cup of tea. The house is definitely a hit!

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Look mum, no nappy!

Not that you can see... but we're very excited! No mishaps in the first hour, but very early days yet. She's definitely ready - nappies have been dry lately, and she uses the toilet regulary. We also took the side off her cot last night, so she is sleeping in a proper bed - again no problems. Hannah is really growing up!

... and Minstrel likes it too!


Today Terry has given Hannah a trampoline, as well as a rocking motorbike and a sandpit with various buckets and spades and things. Hannah found them when she got home from nursery and is very happy!

Hannah and Ella again

We had a lovely time at Ella's house again. Ella and Hannah were pleased to see each other, and played beautifully together in the garden. I hope they will meet again soon!

Another abbey photo

Just cos I think this is a really cool photo :)

Abbey in the mist

Today there is a swarth of mist rolling up the river and spreading over the town. The abbey is incredible. Here is Hannah enjoying herself on a bit of pillar.

Misty Whitby

Thursday, and no sunbathing for us. It's all very atmospheric though. Just as Dracula liked it!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Riding on a donkey

Go get 'em cowgirl!

Whitby Abbey

Hannah thinks this is a great place for hiding! And she said 'Walls fall down... Roof fall down... Windows fall down... Broken. Daddy fix it.' :)

Best friends now!!

Hannah and Ella really like each other today! They loved holding hands, and loved having lunch together. Hopefully they can play together again next week.


Ella and Hannah (and daddy and Lily in the background). A bit suspicious of each other, but enjoying seeing each other nonetheless!

Hey dude

Hannah knows that we are on way to our holiday at the seaside!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Daddy, Hannah, Granny and Uncle Mark.

Uncle Mark is at Granny and Grandad's, so he and Granny have come to see us. Hannah is totally besotted with Uncle Mark! Here's everyone by the river in Ely - Hannah liked the tea shop, especially the ice-cream!

ARM barbecue

It's all a bit too much for Hannah... And for me too, for that matter!

Ely Folk Festival

Well, we didn't go to the festival, but we caught the parade in the High Street. Here is Hannah looking totally bemused. We weren't sure if she liked it, but she said 'more! More!' for a long time after it finished!

3 little tots

Hannah got to play with Eric *and* Mia this afternoon - and I had my first time looking after a child who isn't my own! Mia survived the experience - went quite well in fact. Maybe I'll be a childminder next :)


Hannah and Mia having a lovely time on the rocking elephant!

Hannah just wanted to go further and further into the sea! Glad we brought a change of clothes.
