Alex Rotten

We sometimes compare Alex to Johnny Rotten because of his pale skin and messy hair, but here he is dressed up as Robbie Rotten from one of his favourite tv shows Lazytown.

Later on Saturday evening, we went to Artillery Square in Woolwich to catch Close-Act's spectacular "Pi-Leau". The boys found it too loud and a bit scary, so they watched from the car with Helen, while I enjoyed the show.
Good music, fireworks, stunning lighting and costumes, amazing contraptions, and water spraying everywhere - a genuine spectacle that left me wide- eyed and laughing with delight, and all for free and in Woolwich!
More photos here. It did make me wish I had a better camera though!

Fighting or Dancing?

We spent a lovely sunny day with Alan and Barbara at the Docklands Festival of Dance, centred around Canary Wharf. Unfortunately we got drenched on the way home after some spectacular thunderstorms rounded off the day.

I promise....

Ryan moved up from Beavers to Cubs at the start of this term, but last night he had his official investiture. Helen is going to be busy, sewing on all those new badges ;)
