Dusted off an old Talking Heads cd last night. It got Ariana moving.

At a conference around Westminster in London yesterday. I felt I needed to reconnect to some of the policy stuff and found ... well, that nothing had really changed that much. But caught up with an old school friend from New Zealand for a pint afterwards. Sitting in The Speaker, it suddenly struck me that we were both a long way from home.
Pic 1 - no one seemed disappointed when they discovered this was a coconut shy
Pic 2 - Caveman wants burger. Later will mark mighty hunt with cave painting.
Pic 3 - helter skelter. One of those moments when you just have to let your child go despite your own nervousness
Pic 4 - somewhere on earth a child is crying

Pic one - parade has started. Griff's reading. That's my boy.
Pic two - Ariana riding on one of the floats and day dreaming. Her art club won first prize for best float.
Pic three - right at the beginning, a car managed to slip past the policeman and drive right into the face of the oncoming parade. A three point turn later, an almighty cheer from the crowd and that car was out of there.
Previous years the parade has been more riotous. You see everyone takes water pistols and water fights break out between those on the floats and those watching. This year, it was a little more subdued.

Griff hunting for us at the Young Musician's show. Lights were too bright and couldn't find us for a while. Of course, he was all we could see.

Love looking at these forgotten little corners. Wouldn't like to be a fly though.
