We broke the journey from Holyhead to Norfolk both coming and going with a visit to our kiwi friends David and Zoe, who currently live and work in Keele. Here they are trying a baby for size.
Dot’s school friend Chloe had her baby, Theo, a month before Hugh was born. Here are Dot and Hugh posing with Chloe and Theo at Chloe’s house. Theo is a big impressive baby and Hugh is now trying to eat as much as he can to catch up.
A present from grandma. I don’t know if this is quite the suave and stylish look a modern young man would choose for himself, but, frankly, it makes him look like a teddy bear and is very, very cute.
You’ve heard of babywearing. Grandma tries catwearing.
The cat did not feel that the presence of Hugh was a good reason for her to give up her lap rights.
Especially when Dot had taken her (the cat’s) favourite chair.
Grandpapa had a birthday while we were in Norfolk. Here is Hugh at the celebratory dinner, socializing with Peter Rigg. I’m not sure what they are talking about: possibly hair-care products.
We also took the chance to catch up with Dan and Bernice, who recently moved from Dublin to Colchester. Their son Amos was born in March.
