Today (29th January) is our fifth anniversay..when it became certain, no turning back, that the boy was going to live with me permenantly...or at least until he grows up enough to venture out into the big world. So I thought I would take this opportunity to post some pictures from the last half decade (sorry utterly self-indulgent)...every day has been an amazing experience...and I'm not sure who's learnt more...
Xmas in Megeve...just a month before everything changed
On Newport Transporter Bridge the day after his mum's funeral. If you've never been on a transporter bridge do try it
With his sister in Portsmouth...one of the few times I managed to get them together
First time on a motorbike...monkey bike
And with Charlie Boorman
That sinking feeling - nearly learning to sail
Under the arches - living in Borough
Winning the javelin sports day
erm Madonna, outside our office
Camel riding in Egypt
At the Natural History Museum...can you see the second face?
Better than a bike any day
Rugby...his great love as a half-welshman
Another great love...in Megeve
Giants Causeway...man and boy
Portmeiron this summer
And that's enough!
