I love my hubby and son - cos they bought me an iPhone! In honour of the occassion I took a photo of them enjoying a bottle together as the first photo on it!

Day 116: Messy baby!

Turned my back for two seconds!! Baby scamp took the opportunity to upend his bowl of rice - bloody useless suction cups!

Day 107 - Family - Day 14

6 generations of Sherwin blood. In the front row, my dad son and brother. The photo in the back is from right to left my dad, my grandad (who I sadly never met), my great grandfather, and my great great grandfather. His photo was taken at work. He was a marble mason. It's shame photos don't go back much further than that (mid 1800s) as we have traced our ancestors back further. I come from a line of goldsmiths, silversmiths, and marble masons. My brother is the first male in 100s of years, in my fathers direct line,  not to have served an apprenticeship.

Day 101 - Family -Day 8

Uncle Ciaran home from Australia. Showing Conor what being an engineer is all about! Conor showed him what he thought of his engineering skills a few minutes later - shame I missed that picture! I'm not sure if I should be worried or proud!

Day 77: 6 months!!

Where does the time go! Babs is 6 whole months now. I suspect the next 6 months are going to go even faster than the last ones and see even more changes.

Day 74: The Alphabet: Day 25

Y is for - Yet more election literature!

I'm feeling very popular again. Just as one election is over I start getting lots more fliers in the door! As a Trinity graduate I get to vote for the Senate elections  -we are a three seat constituency.  This is what I recieved in the last two days alone.  All this is adressed to me as Mrs. Claire Married Name B.A.; Interestingly I never informed the college that I had changed my name on marriage but since I did get married there they have taken the liberty of deciding for me!
