My first digital camera, the Canon Digital Ixus. (184-162)

The template running Donkey doesn’t have a gallery template as such so I’ve fixed the links to the older Ixus pics.

Apoa shoots CU-1

So CU-1’s cousin Apoa is learning Photoshop in art class:-) Check out this montage she asked CU-1 to sit for.

Knee arthroscopy

So I’ve now had the pleasure of being slid into an MRI and in a few minutes, a man called John Hardy (my trusty orthopaedic surgeon) is going to regularise a tear in the meniscus in my right knee (thank you TMW so...

Well, it’s not very Christmassy but Nick was transferring photos and contacts to her new handset and in the process sent me this photograph of CU-1 playing in Nicki’s wedding outfit. Shame about the item in the ba...

CU-1 fait de la bicyclette sans roulettes!

Well, I didn’t have the camera with me but this morning we put the pedals on the bicycle and CU-1 pedaled away. She can ride a bike, yay!

Off to bed

Well I meant to say I had a bit of a medical thing happen last Sunday and I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed with my brain turned off. Normal service should resume next Monday.

Dug and H by Jed

Jed sent me this drawing a while back. Just came across it again and thought I would post a shot. For those that haven’t met Jed, he draws. He sketches constantly.

Mucking about in the Pyrenees. On holiday and offline (largely). Back on Monday:-)

Still, does Apoa know she’s got a portrait in the V&A?

Family,

Well, tomorrow we pack and on Thursday, after more than 10 years on West End Lane, we finally move house.

Family,

The sky is dark

I take 100 daft pictures a day with the N70 and ain’t it just typical I don’t have a camera on me today.

Family,

CU-1’s got a fever -- -(

Little CU-1 was playing at her friend Sophia’s house yesterday when she came down with some serious temperature. Nicki kept her medicated all afternoon and put her to bed early.

Family,

Cute

Well, today is the last day of Book Week at CU-1’s school. The kids were asked to go in fancy dress–picking the costume of their favourite character–and little CU-1 has gone as The Little Red Riding Hood:-)

Family,

Babies

It sort of amazes me that with all the fanfare around CU-1’s birth (readers may rememember the blow-by-blow of her mother’s labour)–and the fact that this blog was initially set up to track the goings on in my hea...

Family,

Toddlers at work

This piece over at Digital Dad™ made me chuckle. CU-1 isn’t a toddler anymore (she’s three) but she’s been obsessed with computers, stereo, iPods and telephones almost since day one.

Family,

Whipsnade face painting

Just love this picture. Not sure why exactly, but it’s something to do with the freshness of the whole thing.

Going to the mattresses

Spent the whole day at IKEA (both Wembley and Edmonton) not buying a mattress.

Note for Falby family: CU-1’s swimming pics are now in a flickr set so you can view them as a slideshow.

Asquith Court Parents Association

There has been a real grassroots effort by the parents of kids at Asquith Court West Hampstead. It got so bad we moved CU-1 to a new nursery (which she calls her “new nursery” which is kinda cute…).

Amsterdam for weejuns

So that was fun, if utterly exhausting (started my day 06:00 on Friday and got into my hotel bed at 01:30 only to be kicked awake by little girl at 06:30–and it went downhill from there on the sleep front).
