Level 10!

Today Katie passed the Level 9 test for ice skating. There are only ten levels in the UK Learn to Skate programme. When she passes Level 10, she moves on to a bronze, silver and gold award. From that point on, she'd be in the bigger, competitive leagues. That's all a long way off, but the point is she's done all of this since September. She's amazing!

Katie's skating at Somerset House

Two short mobile phone videos of Katie skating at Somerset House last weekend. I think it's pretty obvious which one is Katie!

They're very short and more than a little bit rubbish. But doesn't she look good?



Isobel's birthday

"So, Daddy, it's like Isobel's birthday, which is the twenty-oneth of December."

"The twenty-first of December, Buffy?"

(big sigh)

"No, Daddy. The. Twenty. Oneth. Of. December."
