Five years


Five years ago my mother passed away. She is still sorely missed.

It’s always been a source of sadness that she never met Zara. Fortunately Zara has her grandfather, who she saw in the summer and still talks about regularly.

So instead of a picture of me with my mum, here they both are with me in the summer. Zara seems to be wondering why Grandad is eating her biscuits.


Jackie stops traffic


Jackie Chan was filming on our street the other day – lots of Hummers driving repeatedly around the mini-roundabout, so we had to wait out of sight before being allowed out to walk past him.

It looks like our area is going to feature quite heavily in the highly anticipated ‘Kung Fu Panda’ film. Not sure how good it will be, but I’m looking forward to seeing our ‘hood feature!
