I couldn’t resist taking this photo of Kam looking proud at M’s birthday party. It was so great this happened without any Covid spoiling the fun.

Lovely day with friends.


My kids surrounded by soft toys in bed.

Kids are hard work. But sometimes—flipping heck—they’re so worth it.

Roo and Rootwo in bed together.

Lovely lunch at Bill’s then to the Novium.


Child labour is alive and well.

Rootwo carries a board game in Chichester high street

Oh boy it’s hammering it down. “Turn it off, Daddy” suggested Rootwo. I wish I could sweetheart.

Rootwo leans out of the window to look at the rain

Very exciting, obviously.

My mom is in hospital (not covid). Now it looks like the Omicron gamble isn’t going to pay off as hospitalisations are exploding. Feeling fairly despondent this evening.


Out scooting with my boy.

Got Roo playing proper Monopoly. I love this old set my parents brought in the 70s.


Made it to M&Ds early and surprised them. Very grateful for a Christmas together this year.


When asking about something he doesn’t understand: “what’s that is?”


Stuff Rootwo says: When we saw Santa and asked him “who’s that?” — “It’s the Christmas tree man”.


“I need a new bum”


Had the best time today flying a 737 simulator with my dad.


Bugger. Bust up my foot on holiday.

Delicious.
