Summer in Oxford!

This picture tells you all you need to know about summer in the UK.
Shorts and snow boots!Here are a couple of pictures of butterflies that Phoebe took;

Guy: Daddy, you're a tiger!
Ken: Am I? Why's that then?
Guy: Because you have stripes on your forehead.
Ken: Hmmmm....

Phoebe was asking who the bronze busts were in the restaurant this evening. We explained they were the owners and founders of the restaurant. 'Did they have arms and bodies?' she asked. 'Yes,' we replied. 'And was their skin brown like K, and N, and R (naming some of her friends)?'
We had to admit we didn't know.
I hadn't realised that Phoebe thought that all bronzes were representations of people of colour!

Busy, Busy Bee!

This past week has been hot and busy!
The Tabby-Kat continues to delight her adoring public!
We went to the splash park with our lovely friends. And Guy had the time of his life running around with the big boys!

And the horses continue to benefit from the apples and carrot sticks from Phoebe's lunch box.

We're all enjoying the walk to and from school. There's something new each day! Aren't these pretty?

Happiness is.......

When you're a three year old boy, a chocolate ice-cream and a train ride through the palace gardens are just about as good as life gets!

'Nuff said!

Running late!

So, here's the little bundle who's making us late these days.

It's particularly difficult to get everyone up and out of bed in the mornings!

Or to get Guy and Ita to leave places on time.

The other day, they were so reluctant to take off their dressing-up clothes, that I ended up doing the school pick up with Spiderman and a witch princess!

Again, apologies for the length of time it takes me to post these days!
