Some toys never get old

I've wanted one of these foreverspin tops since I first laid eyes on them. Something about a symmetrical, balanced chunk of metal just does it for me. But the shipping was pretty high and the tops themselves aren't that cheap. For what you get, they're pretty reasonable, but a high number is still a high number.

One thing I didn't anticipate was how much Tabitha would like these things. If I'd known that, justifying the purchase would've been a whole lot easier!

Sealife Centre

As a treat, I took Tabitha to the Sealife Centre. Taking photos at aquariums is usually pointless because of the reflections, but I got a couple of lucky ones.

I think rays are my favourite.

Easter weekend

When I'm not at work, I try to spend as much of that time as possible with Tabitha. I love the long weekend; we've had such a blast.


Yes I know this isn't a real frisbee. Not sure what it is about Frisbee People that makes them so protective over this floating disc but there you go

We played ultimate frisbee before and it's very tiring. I suppose I should have expected a certain level of intensity from something described as "ultimate". Standing round in a circle and throwing a "frisbee" is a little more my speed. Still, that doesn't mean I'm immune from getting the thing stuck in a tree.

Fortunately, Sam's a good climber.


We finally moved into our new place and I have very much enjoyed exploring the seafront in the mornings. It's very quiet, except for my yelling at the dog.

On the first night, after a stressful day of trying to find our stupid cat, we had these amazing pizzas from Pizza Face in Brighton.
