This last week has been a bit of a disaster - I spilled a glass of coke over my laptop and that was the end of it. Thankfully my new (second hand) laptop arrived yesterday, just in time to catch up with the linky!
Still, it was obviously my own fault for drinking fizzy pop in the first place... It's just that:
I'm lovin' this graph too -
Although, if this one is true I ought to be a size 0, junk food or no!

I've been busy scanning in endless family photos and setting up a family tree. It's something that's always vaguely interested me, but now I have Marianna it somehow seems more important to record where she came from, and all the people who have helped create her.
Look out for more updates on the Powells, Birds, Reeves', Rowlands' and more!

Babies are funny. Fact. I mean, just look at them:
I've been scanning in all our family photos, so I figure I'd use this opportunity to share a few of them. Here's my brother, Rhys, discovering chocolate:
And my dad as a baby back in 1966/7:
My mum's baby photos mostly got flooded, so this is the earliest one we have:
To make up for it, they ensured there were plenty of embarrassing photos of me!

My mum gave me a few old school books of mine she'd kept the other week, so I scanned my favourite pages in before consigning them to the great recycling bin in the sky...
I struggle to do these things now...
I vaguely remember going on a trip with my parents and brother to see an Egyptian exhibit, and my brother being told they would leave him with the mummy overnight if he wouldn't stop being naughty. I kind of hope this is the event being referenced, because otherwise I was just some weird kid who wanted to see tombs and eat cheese on toast afterwards.
In my parents' recollections I'm always yelling at my dad as a little kid, so it's good to see proof that I spread my temper around. (!)
There were a few of these weird little stories in the book - Tommy Blue Tit featured prominently in one, and Moses in another. (It is not ours to question the teaching methods of the early 90s.) This one just edged its way into favourite position because of the 'secret life'. :D
The excitement, it never ended!
