Lydia on Dad's computer. Almost overnight she has got to grips with the mouse, moving it on screen, clicking and even dragging objects.

It's Gran's 65th birthday. The plan was to have a flying lesson (Gran not Lydia!) but the weather was against us. Anyway it meant the ducks got some much needed bread before we had dinner and a slice of cake. (Below: Lydia and Gran on their way to the ducks.)

Err, this one takes some
explaining! Maybe a mid-life
crisis or the realisation I
can't afford a Caterham, but
I have just bought an old
Peugeot 205 Cti, yes made
before the first Gulf War,
well just, and has done
enough miles to drive to Iraq, and back a few times, but then it didn't exactly cost a fortune, not yet anyway - wait until I start sorting it out. More in following weeks...

The Flying Scotsman is up for sale, so Claire and I took a ride to the sidings where it's kept to have a look for ourselves.

Also this week for a Migration special I got to look around 19 Princelet St, a wonderful museum in the East End of London. Go if you are in the area. Click here to see the story.
Holiday time! Hurrah. We are off the Lake District again, staying at the farm we went to last year and visiting Great Grandpop and Granny in Yorkshire. Lots of pictures, very lucky with the weather (once again) and a great time had by all. All pictures Leica M6 / 35 Summicron

To celebrate Gran's 65th Birthday earlier this month all the family head for her home.
I had lots of fun with Charlotte who helped Gran blow out her candles.
