Wednesday, April 24, 2002 : Special Treat
Taylor was given a special trip to see Grandad Anderton and stay with him for a couple of days at the weekend. He is so lucky..... Well, Ok, Clare and I were very lucky, as we were being treated to a weekend away, and Grandad Anderton volunteered to look after Taylor from the Friday night, to Sunday afternoon. He was very tired at the end of it :-)
Clare and I had a great time at Stone Manor Hotel, with our Jacuzzi Bath, and Shower, and Breakfast in Bed. It was bliss. We ate far too much while we were there, and didn't really have the energy to do a great deal. We did manage to go and see Taylor on the Saturday, as Pat and Jade were over, and it was an oportunity to see them. We also bumped into Andrew and Liz, and kids, from over the road, and they all looked very well (Joseph has just got over measles..) Joseph even said "Hello", although that was about the only word he knew ;-)
We finished the weekend with a meal at the Robin Hood, before making our way home, ready for work on Monday morning. What a great break though.

Friday, April 12, 2002 : Pukey Girl
Just lately Robyn is being a sicky girl (picking up from where Taylor left off!) I think this is due to her new found freedom. She has now perfected the art of crawling and wants to do this continulusly, even when she has just eaten, so she leaves little deposits all over the place and then preceeds to crawl through them!!
She has also learnt how to pull herself to standing by holding on to something with all her might, then hauling herself up to kneeling, then standing, this is fine although she doesn't care what she uses to do this, poor Kizzie is losing clumps of fur!!! (she is so tolerant) foldaway tables fall down on top of her, as they can't take her wieght. Her other problem at the moment is once she has pulled herself up, she's so busy looking around and grinning that she forgets to hold on, and consequently falls back down with a thud, she is beginning to get her share of bumps and brusies!
Next Monday she is going to start doing Gymbabes (like Taylor) I'm sure she will love it now she crawls.

Tuesday, April 9, 2002 : Not very hungry!
For some reason, over the last week or so, Taylor has decided that he is not interested in Breakfast, and sometimes, lunch as well. It is a major job to get him to eat something, without throwing a wobbly.
We go back to Gymbabes tomorrow after the easter break, so that may give him an apetite for lunch. Things are very busy round here, and so Clare is going to have Taylor for the other half of the day tomorrow, to let me try and catch up on my workload. I am giving a talk in Birmingham next Monday, and it is not quite ready yet.
