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 […]
After telling you about all the significant “firsts” we managed, today I’m bringing you part 2 in my series of posts about what we did during the summer holiday by talking about a couple of celebrations that happened over the six weeks the geekdaughter was off school.

Happy birthday my little man, three years old today! We’re off to the press preview of the new Sea Life Centre in Manchester, followed by a small party tea for just a few local friends. We’ve bought him a fire engine shaped Trunki suitcase and some cars. Here’s to a great day 🙂
