In the end I dressed up the amazing camo-dino-hoodie (oh, that it was available for adults) with a sparkly pink dinosaur keyring for the zipper and some badges. A gift and a life-lesson in how you can transform outfits for other purposes through the power of accessorising. Apparently Lucy (even smaller) is also taken by the keyring, but that may be just becuase it's shiny and tiny enough to be forbidden. Bizarrely, this morning I got a letter from an entirely different neibling (Lewis). The scribbles looked authentic but I think mum probably helped with the rest (he's only 2!)

I got asked if I'd allow use of a photo in this tiny photo gallery from schmap (below) a week or so ago, and now it's done, and I find a photo from plumber Jo in the pile, too. You'll know if yours are there, they've been scrupulous about getting permission.

There's an "Oxford Botanic Gardens" widget here, honest. Well, it's on this page too (grumble).



Very strange dream this morning, I'm still trying to unpack it.

Hmmm, looks like it may not load on LJ. I'll have to put it on my vox (sfx pokes tongue out).

There's one by me of Quiggins in Liverpool too.

Why do children get all the best hoodies?

I've got one for Cowley Road, and they've asked me for one from Toronto too. Cor.

There was some thread I saw on Flickr of a grumpy professional photographer grumping at the amateurs who were all delighted at their photos being wanted, even though for free, and obv doing him out of a job or summat... hmm.

I was a little dubious about the honour, I must say. At least they could've sent us a bag of jellybabies or something.

I don't think it counts as professional work! Nor do I think you need professional photos for reproduction at that size (it matters more at print resolutions) ... but it is a nice little googlejuiceboost.

I'm in the Oxford one (or at least I was in last year's edition), and my mum's in there too. Crazy!

Well, mine was from the "photo point" in Blackwell's... hardly unique, I think! Then again, maybe I'm the only one who bothers taking photos of bookshops. :)

I have also been absorbed
Mine’s in Cowley Road.

I can sympathise a little with professional photographers. On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind a little traffic to a photo which is not this one:
