Bank Holiday

A bit of a fuzzy piccy here - due either to the driving rain or the poor photographer.

From Left to right: Matty, Maddy, Martha, Anna, me, Dom, Luke, Kat, Rocco, Lisa, Jowler and Arthur.

A perfect Bank Holiday weekend at Heatherfield.

Reunited, and it feels so goooooood...

Posing on Hampstead Heath

On the swings with cousin Alex, over from Qatar (and showing off his swarthy, Arabic complexion):

Picking up bad habits

Grandma and Grandad down = a little too much time spent in the pub

Grandad hopes Maddy will be able to open her gullet by the time she's two.

Vocabulary update aged 17 months exactly

With translations:

Aya Hello. Nice to see you again.

Momee Mother dearest

Narna Bendy yellow fruit

Maw Why yes, I'd love another slice.

Bubbul Look at those beautiful translucent spheres

Mil I'd certainly like some of that nutritious liquid that
comes from the finest Jersey cows

Uh-oh Oh dear. It would appear I've spilt some of this
morning's white gold.

Ba-Ba You can leave now. I've had quite enough of your
ugly mug.

At least she's got the basics covered.
