I’ve been a fan of Strictly Come Dancing for many years though, although I will always look back on the year that geekdaughter was born as the year I followed it most closely. Series 5 commenced at the end of September 2007, and the geekdaughter arrived on October 10th. We rigged up a TV in […]
When the geekdaughter started school last year we had to fill in an “all about me” questionnaire so that her teachers could learn something about her at the start of term. I liked the format so much that I’ve decided to use it as the basis of an annual update. I thought it would be […]
I appreciate now we’re in to October that the summer is well and truly over. And I’ve already shared two posts about what we did over the summer – you can read all about all the “firsts” that happened, and about a birthday and an anniversary in other posts. I want to finish off this […]
Well, that’s it. The long summer holiday I’d been so apprehensive about is over, and the geekdaughter is back at school. We had never really known how we were going to cope with no school for 6 weeks – we are lucky in a way that the geekdaddy works from home and can have some […]

Do you remember this picture? It’s the geekdaughter on her first day at school last September. It doesn’t seem that long ago in some ways, and in other ways it feels like ages. At the time I remember looking at her in her uniform and thinking how grown up she looked, but now I look […]
We headed off to the summer fair at the geekson’s nursery this weekend, and we all had a great time. There were a good selection of stalls for us to spend money on, and a group of people teaching African drums and dancing. And there was face painting.
I have a feeling the geekdaughter may have watched Disney’s “Lilo and Stitch” rather too many times. If you don’t know the movie Stitch is a small blue alien who manages to blend cute and fluffy with bad and evil. He ends up on Earth being looked after by a small girl, Lilo, who tries […]
