the big concert

090705_850_img_4345.jpg

both esther and kezia’s orchestras played in an extravaganza yesterday.  it was very good, but we now realise that as our girls get older their concerts will get longer.  this one was 2 and a half hours, and although very good, we were slightly relieved when we could exit the rather warm venue. 

anyway i grabbed the shot above at the end of kezia’s orchestra’s practice, so i wouldn’t get evicted.

update: the wedding is between Steven Gerrard, 27, Liverpool Captain and Alex Curran, 24, former nail technician who met Gerrard at a nightclub and is mother of his two children, Lilly-Ella, three and Lexie, one. I know this because it was in the London Evening Standard this evening. Once again, Funkypancake was first with the news !

stop photography

a whole mixture of signs here for you to enjoy

no photography

i’ve always said that camera phones in the shape of shoes are a bad idea. this sign adds weight to my argument.

someone had scraped the ‘no’ off but i think this still applies.
