I took this photo a couple of hours ago whilst strolling along the seafront with Amelie...

Shepherd's Delight
Unfortunately we were heading the other way towards Asda, where the sky was distinctly dull. And by the time we came back, it was dark. But it was worth turning around for. All those people who say 'never look back' don't know what they're talking about.

As it happens, I'm not the only person in this family who spends a lot of time pushing a buggy. Over the past couple of days, Amelie's become obsessed with a doll's buggy she got for Christmas, which had previously lain untouched and gathering dust for more than four weeks. It's particularly spooky, because at work this morning, our senior administrator asked me if Amelie would like a Winnie the Pooh doll's buggy which used to belong to her daughter. She's been looking for a good home for it since her daughter stopped playing with it. Which is quite touching, because her daughter's eighteen. Either they're choosy about who they give it to, or the girl needs to grow up a bit.

Anyway, I've graciously accepted, and we'll be receiving it next week. But in the meantime, Amelie's getting her money's worth out of the old one. This is her unwinding before bedtime, shortly after we got back from Asda this evening...

I like the way she says "Back up, back up" as she reverses across the living room. She'll make a good HGV driver one day. She'll also be a lot of help if we ever have a second child. We just need to make sure the baby's wearing a crash helmet at all times.
