I planned to spend this evening sitting in front of the fire, reading the paper.  Well, Eric put a stop to that.

I’m not usually permitted to take photos of Snowball.  Today, though, she was unfazed by the flash and played with Joe without noticing what I was doing.  It’s highly unusual for this grumpy, camera-shy little girl, anyway.

Settling In
December 23, 2009

We’ve brought Eric to Kent with us this time.  He’s settled in very well, and has taken charge of both seats on the sofa.

Eric, being only ten months old, has never seen snow before.  It drove him crazy.  The flat looks like a bomb has hit it, but we’re all still in once piece!

Christmas Self-Portrait
December 15, 2009

Took this on Sunday afternoon at Mum and Dad’s house.  We’re not having a Christmas tree this year, due to a kitten and a toddler: one or the other will try to climb it, and destroy it in the process.  I’ve been taking photos of everyone else’s trees to compensate, and I’m very pleased with how this self-portrait worked out.  (Any self-portrait that obscures my face is good!)

This beautiful kitten-cat of mine, he’s a very clean kitten with very long whiskers and a little pink tongue.  He let me spend at least ten minutes taking photos yesterday evening: that’s about a zillion times his usual attention span.

Wasn’t me!

Here is my gorgeous, walking, talking baby boy.  He enjoys destroying bathrooms with the help of his ginger sidekick, Eric.

Not Looking

This is my beautiful ginger boy in the bathroom after David’s bath this afternoon.  He spent ages watching the drops of water run down the shower screen.

Eric has a comfort-blanket.  It’s a sheepskin that my other half accidentally ruined in the washing machine, and he adores it.

Meet Eric.  Otherwise known as ZibZib, Oy You, and the Ginger Git.
