Brighton beckoned

Before any of you ask 'Where's the pics of Emily's Christening', I'll be putting an entry on within the next week. Promise. I'll not labour on about it either until I write the thread - sufficeto say, we all had a brilliant day...err...except Emily when she got dunked. But she was fine after that.

So this weekend, Sharon and I decided to take Emily somewhere different so we went to Brighton.

We walked along the pier and Emily went absolutely wild with all the different sights and sounds..and smells (ah..the great unwashed masses at a British seaside resort). Emily wanted to go on all the 'big' rides but happily settled for the more timid ones...

Then we went for a walk down the beach. Emily loved the boats and watching the kites.....

...before heading off for some fish & chips on the sea front.

All in all, a brilliant day out. The weather was wonderful and Emily loved a view different from the usual London sights.

Sharon's well, as you can see in the pic above. Bumps getting bigger and we can't wait until July so see Emily's new bestest friend!

I'll be posting again this week, so catch you all then.

Peace & love to all

I'm ready for my close up

I couldn't resist putting these pictures of Emily on the blog. She had her picture taken professionally and, well, she was not in best form. The poor dote was not in the mood for posing at first. Still, she warmed to it at the end of the session and we managed to get about 40 photo's. Here are a handful we wanted to share...

April 2008

Is it just me or is this year just flying by? It's really scary! April already - a third of the way through the year!!! And this is what we woke up to....

We've been hanging around the north of London recently. Over the last cople of weekends we've been going to Aldenham Farm Park in Hertfordshire. Emily loves it. She knows loads of farmyard animal names and it was nice for her to see real pigs, sheep, horses, cows etc.

We also had Denise, Sharons sister, over. She's going to be Emily's Godmother. We all went to feed the deer at Bentley Priory and the ducks in Stanmore. get the feeling that Emily loves animals??
