So we have our children back, just about.

Charlie was pretty much back to normal by bedtime last night, and Mathilda, who had it a lot worse, started to smile again about lunchtime today.

What a heavy few days that has been. Not that H or I ever thought that they were in particular danger, . . . → Read More: Better

Happier Bunnies

Particularly as there are no feeding tubes down anyone’s throat anymore.

Take that Viral Gastroenteritis!

Poor Little Pumpkin

She’s got a tube up her nose and everything…

… and a night in hospital is about to begin.


Charlie and Mathilda are ill with a virus and are up the hospital being re-hydrated – for the second day in a row.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more heart wrenching sight than the pair of them trying to muster a smile when they saw their Silly Rabbits when they went to . . . → Read More: ill

Happy Slapper

Charlie has a new bath time activity.

Whilst reclining in his bath chair, he likes to repeatedly slap his winkle, to which he giggles uncontrollably.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, we’ve all done it right… Right? Oh.

Ah, children jumping out of their skin – lovely to see.

This time The Horrors have their daily encounter with their arch nemesis, the fish at the beginning of the current Baby Einstein dvd that they’ve yet to get bored of.

Classic stuff.

Comedy Turn

As you may have read before, Mathilda want’s everything Charlie has – which apparently includes his penchant for celebrity impressions.

So without further ado i give you Mathilda as….

…Mel Smith.

I thank you.

Two Thirds

Age is very important when you’re young. That’s why the years are promptly divided into fractions up to about the age of 8 or so.

So today, in time honoured fashion, I’m very pleased to celebrate The Horrors reaching the grand old age of 0.666r. Or 2/3. Or twelve eighteenths.

Anyway, here’s some photos of . . . → Read More: Two Thirds
