Saskia: Grandfather & JanMa have been sending postcards from their travels around the UK and you have recognised a few places from your London City in a Bag set. Da big eye (London Eye), London Bridge (er, actually it's the Tower Bridge) and da tar marl (St Paul's apparently looks like the Taj Mahal).
Félix: Exploring the Magic Basket. It really does feel like it was only yesterday that I was gathering treasures for your sister's little hands….

Saskia: We visit the library regularly to satisfy your appetite for books. Shh! We Have a Plan is one of your favourites at the moment. Anything than can be read with dramatics will pique your interest.
Félix: Winter sun.

Félix: The best kind of audience (for a ballet dancing 2.5 year old).

Saskia: It's been a week spent indoors recovering from the flu, but your face just says Joy. I love that about you.
Félix: We've been offering you solids but you're just not into it. Your thumb, on the other hand…

Saskia: They tell me that you love making art at school.
Félix: You came away with me for a girls weekend down the coast and you were an ideal companion, listening to the conversations and joining in with enthusiastic babble every now and then. I loved the opportunity to sleep next to you and wake up to your bright eyes and wide smile.
