Volcano, Bridge

The Island of St Lucia now has a volcano on it. I'm going to try to flog Olivia's model to the St Lucia tourist board when she's finished with it...

One of Sarah's. Done from a brief glimpse of a scene on telly, then drawn from memory.

Welcome to St Lucia...

...I wish. It would be nice to be somewhere warm. This was the state of the model of St Lucia when I got home - subsequently, it acquired a volcano. A second one is under consideration...

Sofa bed

I promise there is an actual sofa bed under Alex's collection of stuffed toys. Of course, these aren't the really special 20 or so, who live on his bed itself...

Still life with packaging

Sarah's art assignments are sometimes a little odd. But then, perhaps teenagers would rather draw packaging than fruit.

Mickey Mouse March


Olivia's band had a concert tonight - postponed Christmas concert from before Christmas - we got snowed out before. Luckily, they dropped the Christmas music. I promise the flutes are actually playing here, and you could hear them in person, though the clip seems to be all brass...

Blast from the past

I never seem to blog much over here - guess our life isn't that exciting! But recently, I've been organising old photos - I had a ton of CDs from the days when you sent your film off to be developed and could get it back on CD for only a little extra, so I decided to move all those photos (24 per CD!!) onto the computer and then back them up with the rest of the photos on my memory stick. Consequently, I've been having a look at some of them, and thought I'd share some from time to time. This one is from December 2002 - I remember fairly clearly as we were going to a wedding and I was about a million months pregnant (ok, about 8) with Alex. The girls looked gorgeous, though, even if Mummy looked a bit like a beached whale...
