Have a few photos - in random order!


Here's dear old Bunny, the guinea pig. We've no idea how old he is but he's been with us nearly two years and was fully grown when he arrived. He's developed a rather unpleasant problem of the nether regions that afflicts older boars. This means I have to be rather more involved with his bum than I'd like but apart from that he's going strong.

Here's a picture that shows Dani's bike trailer in action. I snapped this on the way to Hesfes.


Leo and Dani had a good afternoon armed with a fungi identification book in a Brighton park.



I found a photo from Hesfes! She was having a great time - honest!




At our local community festival - on July 8th - somone had constructed this amazing Dalek.


Our little Doctor!


Pearl and Leo on the climbing wall at another community festival. We're rather well off for community festivals round here!


Pearlie very high up!



Leo made this super little surfer dude. He's constructed entirely out of wax from BabyBel cheeses. It is a little soft for this purpose so he does sag after a while!

thats very cool, i'm tempted to buy some babybels just to make one. (tho neither me nor A like the cheese in them so guess it would be a bit of a waste...off to find the plasticine...!)

Liza said...

forgot to say, love the photos. A has been NAGGING me into buying him a suit like the Doctors - better keep him away from your blog in case he spots Leos!!

Oh what great pics! Am dead impressed with the trailer. And what's that fungi then? Leo looks *very* Dr-ish. And yes, the sculpture is amazing :-)

Liza, Leo got that suit for his fifth birthday! He wears the trousers very low slung now so they still fit.

Gill, the fungus is called 'King Alfred's Cakes' - which is rather wonderful. Also known as 'Cramp Balls'! If you put one in your pocket you won't get cramp - apparently...

I find Babybel "Gouda" uses a different wax that softens nicely with body heat but firms up when left at room temperature.
