A little red Swiss T shirt has arrived from New York for Catherine. If you want to find out why click here and scroll down a bit!!

April 30th 2007 and  Bumble is 1 !!! .... or eight as Catherine tells me, apparently 8 years for every 1 human year!

Catherine has just released her Painted Lady butterflies, after watching them grow from tiny caterpillars. Poor things came through the post in a jar. After a week or so they turned into chrysalises and attached themselves to the top of the jar.

Time to put them into their temporary home. And after another 10 days out came four magnificent butterflies.

And after watching them for a few days, it came time to release them... but they didn't want to go, which gave Catherine the thrill of having them on her hand. Apparentely, we should be able to see them in the garden as they are supposed to stay in the vicinity! A very interesting experience!!!

An emergency is declared as the tap in the downstairs loo starts a' juddering! Quick call 'Bogs the plumbing fireman!'

Our church fete!

It was a great day .. no one does 'em like St Johns!!

Catherine has got big feet hasn't she!!! It's the novelty race in her first sports day at school.

Come on Catherine's team!!

The classic egg and spoon race was  won by her team...
 
 
 
....as were a number of the more 'serious' races....
 
jumping...
 
running....
 
throwing....
 
... but it's not the winning that matters, so her team came second  on the whole days activities!!! And it was a whole day... a hot .. no very hot... whole day. Dads and Mums sweltered along with the kids and teachers as we criss-crossed the playing fields to each event.
 
A great day which celebrated the idea of 'taking part'... as well as beating the hell out of the other teams!
 
Luckilly there was no 'mums and dads race'.... well the school can't afford the hospital bills!!

It's that time of year...

... Catherine seems to spend more of the weekends in face paint than not in it!!

This wee lad, or is it a lass, was one of the baby animals at Easton Farm Park which is a petting zoo near Ipswich. Of course at this time of year baby animals are a great draw. Piglets, fouls, calves, kids, chicks and ducklings were in abundance when we went for the farmer Market which is held at Easton once a month. Catherine wanted to show you a couple of images from her part of the day!

From these photos you might think it was all rabbits, but they really do have a lot of animals, it's just that most of them you wouldn't want on your lap!
 
One of the loveliest, fluffiest, sweetest (these are Catherine's words you understand) are the ducklings!!

trampolene.jpg

 
 
 
 
When Catherine was doing trampolene lessons last year she got up to Grade 4, and ever since she has been on about having a trampolene in the garden. So when a great offer at Toys R Us came up.....
 
 
.. although if you read the safety instructions about death and paralysis ( which of course you have to!) you wouldn't buy one!!!!! The safety enclosure was a must!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Below are some images and video from Catherine's winter Husky ride!

Daisy (and George with his mouth open!!)

Meet George and Daisy, two dear friends that we have known for years. Actually they live just down the road at our local garden nursery, and are regularly hand fed by Catherine!! A dangerous and not exactly pleasant pastime but they do love the potatoes and apples from our garden (those that are less than perfect of course!!) By they way for the record they are Kune-Kune pigs!

Here's a blood thirsty vampire...
drakrs.jpg
....and he's holding Catherine's all singing all dancing Dracula!

Here's Catherine's dancing and singing Dracula (1.75 from Tesco) and Carl fresh from our bonfire party(20.00 from Tesco!!!) If you want to hear what he sounds like, (Dracula not Carl!), click below

See Catherine's page for what Adrian produced.

Here's a man you might just be familiar with. It's Adrian, the magician and childrens entertainer that you'll find on most Stena HSS trips across the North sea from Harwich to Hoek van Holland.
 
 
He's been entertaining kids for years on the superferry, and we were suprised and happy to find him in Ipswich town centre making balloon hats for the kids.
 

giraffehatrs.jpg

Catherine wanted a giraffe hat, ummm due to the huge number of people milling past, I couldn't get his head in shot, the giraffe not Adrian! Mind you it's a very fetching backdrop don't you think!!! Hopeless!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Catherine wanted to show off some of her art work from her early days!! A few bits of nursery art (early 2005 just 4) are displayed at the bottom of the page. That's also where you'll find a few of Catherine's games to try!

Hunger and malnutrition are recurrent problems in Niger, which is the poorest country in the world. The BBC were stopped in reporting but the pictures they did get were grim, so Catherine decided to write.

It's absolutely amazing but since September and entering reception the talent is really moving! Does talent move? Anyway you know what we mean! Here's an example of what we're on about. After two months in reception, she can write her name..the snail is almost real.. there are good spirals. She can now draw triangles, and eyes have pupils, she can  even manage handbags and suitcases!!
 
 
 

Dressed for a HAPPY HALLOWEEN,  Catherine - the wicked witch!!
