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!

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!

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.


It's windy, grey and showery, but Hannah is having the time of her life!
