What’s My Name?

Max loves this t-shirt uncle Ricky made for him – especially as his name glows in the dark. Anyone who walked past would be told to look at his t-shirt and say his name.

He also loves elastic bands for some reason.

Not quite sure what he was up to here, but whatever he was doing kept him entertained for a little while.

Yesterday, Max and I decided together, we were going to partake in an Act of Kindness.

It was an incredibly hot day here in London, so after we went to buy ice cream and ice lollies, we rushed home to put them in the freezer before they melted. En route, I noticed a number of workmen, varying from BT engineers to scaffolders.

Max was overheating a little; he was turning red. So once back home, he rested for a bit to cool down. Afterwards, I had a chat with him about doing something good. He agreed, so I rubbed sun lotion on him and off we went, armed with bottles of water to give out to the workmen, to help them to stay hydrated.

I strongly believe a child’s home environment has the biggest influence – especially in the early years. The more we teach our children to be kind to everyone, the more the world will become a better place for them to grow, and to enjoy life.

What are your thoughts on this?

Summer Fun at the Seaside ~ Part Three

After the rides, we headed for the beach. Unfortunately, not a sandy one, although Max didn’t seem to mind.

He and auntie Rita splashed about for a bit.

Then he did his own thing.

My turn to head for the sea with Max. The pebbles were very uncomfortable! It’s not long before I decide I’ve had enough!

It was actually a warm day, although it may not seem so in the pictures (remember, we are in England!), so Max prepared himself to hit the sea again.

Auntie Rita decides to join him again. I’m not quite sure what they were looking for!

Waiting impatiently for me to open his bubbles, Max could not wait to pour some of the liquid over me. Of course, he found it funny.


A tired Little Yum-Yum, it was time to go home.

Summer Fun at the Seaside ~ Part One


On the way to Hastings, Max chose to sit with his new found friend.

After a little while, he decided to sit with me whilst she took a nap. This is his “Are we there yet?” face.

Upon arrival, we stopped for a spot of lunch – fish and chips of course! Then straight onto the rides.

Riding the Caterpillar with auntie Rita (Syreeta) and more.

For a few minutes, Max was a police officer.

Then a jockey I guess! But look at his face. He spotted something else he wanted to ride…


A big pink Cinderella pumpkin!

Back to his happy self.
