When the Leveson Inquiry used the phrase 'hounded by the press', I think this is what they had in mind...

That's Amelie on her way out in her dog hat and pink sunglasses, carrying an 'I Love Chocolate' bag from Thorntons. And she really didn't want her photo taken. It's not easy being a paparazzo. I almost had a Liam Gallagher situation on my hands.

Anyhoo, back on January 1st, I wrote that "I'm already looking forward to my next week off at the end of February. I think we'll be choosing St Leonards for that holiday too", which as predictions go, has proved to be only partially accurate. My parents' house might be the perfect winter getaway, but in the end we decided it would be far more relaxing if Amelie went on her own. So we've packed her off to my Mum's for a couple of nights.

She has a habit of taking her Peppa Pig umbrella to nursery on the brightest of sunny days, so typically she looked out of the window at the grey clouds and drizzle, and decided to wear dark glasses. The dog hat was apparently "to keep the sun off my head". And to prove to the world that she's barking.

In the meantime, Lisa and I are living it up by sleeping, shopping, hoovering, sorting, dusting, washing, cleaning, tidying and wondering where we're going to fit a Moses basket. Lisa's taken the first of those jobs, and I'm handling the rest. By the time I go back to work, I'm going to need a holiday.
