Bethan meets an Uncle and an Auntie

Bethan's starting to get past the generic grumpy old bloke baby look - she thought you might like to see a few of her different faces. Leave comments about who you think she looks like.

Since Uncle Barns is off to Japan in less than two weeks, Bethan thought it'd be a good idea to meet him before she goes.

She also convinced her Auntie Kendyl to fly up to Hamilton at the weekend to meet her.

Here's a short slideshow:

Let me know if you want a link to the plain photo page as well (like the last couple).

If you want to download any of these in a proper size, they're available on the flickr site. Have a bit of a hunt around and let me know if you want a bit of a guide for how to do it.

Photo barrage!

Well, it's been four weeks, everyone's home, I'm back at work (sob) - and I've finally got round to chucking some more photos of Bethan on the internet.

Thanks to everyone who's been to visit us, triple thanks for all the presents, extra added thanks to those who brought food!

Those we haven't seen - we'd love to see you!

Those who've already been round - we'd love to see you again!

Desperately Seeking Susan

I got this one mainly for someone else in the house rather than me. Although I do remember enjoying it when I saw it as a kid, I thought it would just be cheesy at best when viewed in the cold light of 2007.

Nope. It's still cool, just like Madonna (or Madge Ritchie as she seems to be more commonly known these days). Although it is a simple (some might say desperate) amnesia/mistaken identity storyline, the story is told well, with Rosanna Arquette perfectly cast as the daydreaming uptight '80s housewife.

Madge ain't bad either, in one of the very few acting roles she has not been savaged or derided for.

This is not a hard-hitting or important film, by any stretch of the imagination, but if you want to relive the past (or just get costume ideas for those ever-popular Eighties Parties), then fear not. This film allows you to do so with far less cringing than you might think.
