Fin's moving out.

He's had enough of Isla's harassing and being told to eat all his dinner by Mum. So he's moved out to live like Pingu and exist on a strict Haribo diet.

To cool for school

Fin's first school photo, taken two weeks after he started.


Fireman Fin lighting up the blues and two's.

Isla at Caffé Grande Italia

An amazing Café in Sirmione that hadn't changed since the 50's.
It even survived our visit.


Wysteria hysteria.

Two kids, one shot – never gonna happen. I admit this is a comp of two shots.


We met The General at the seafront. Good gooooood.


... I put up too many silly pics of Isla, so here is a nice one from Woolacombe last year.

He's a baby, he's a baby!

Yes I still have it and yes, very comfortable thanks.

Fin's ET finger

Back at Hadleigh Castle again.

Lounge Style

Not many people can pull this look off. Actually, nobody over the age of three can pull this look off. Thanks Katie B. for the photo.

Hadleigh Castle on a Summers Evening

Fin was looking for his dummy and blanket after I threw them in the long grass. Cruel to be kind, he'll thank me when he's older.

Fin or Isla?

Which is your favourite?
I like the bald chubby one myself.

My portrait by Geoff Appleton

Whilst at work I was unknowingly sitting for a portrait by our favourite illustrator.  (I have uploaded this at supersize for you to print out and put up on your wall or dartboard)

Got my pride in my ride...

...great ad from Toyota. Love the way the dad smashes up the tea party.

Bella Italia

The Jordan family picture.
I know it's not a great one but it's the only one OK?


Now I like Pirates but I also like Fairy Princess Pigs. But which is better?

There's only one way to find out...

My girls...

...on a lovely English winters day. Neither of them complained one little bit. Not a peep.

If you go down to the woods today...

... Fin will probably throw a massive stick at your head.

I'm not going in...

... it's one foot and blown out. I'm not going in for anything less than 6 foot glassy with an off shore.

Where's my bucket?

Cheers Rob!

I can't drink Weissbier out of anything else now. Check out the pour too. First time. Near perfection.
After the Seventh, I drink straight from the bottle mind.


Rossi's Yeah! Brown flavour.

Starting this Summer...

... where I left off last Summer. Click for link to Spotify playlist...

Isla owns...

... the face of evil!

One more pirate...

... enough pirates now.

Fairy princess

For every nasty pirate, there's a lovely fairy.


The party season kicks in again.

I don't think any kids got run through with the foam sword. Although it didn't come back from the party. Did he get rid of the evidence?

Pinky pinky pink pink.

There's far too much pink in our house. Only Fin's room is safe. For now.
