Give us a frown Freddie?

Over the festive period we had the chance to catch up with little Freddie. He has changed so much in 4 months and is looking like a proper little boy now. He has certainly become more aware of the people around him and has slipped into that shy stage which all kiddies seem to go through. He didn't seem too sure about me and when i tried to play with him, he looked as if he wasn't sure whether he should join in or cry at me. This is way different to how he was when I last saw him! I guess that is one of the problems with not seeing your family that often what with distance and all.

Something that did make me laugh was the fact that when anyone is taking a photo of him now, his new 'pose' is to strike a frown! As you can see, Freddie is frowning and Jenny is demonstrating!

He did lose the frown when Auntie Jane fed his chocolate from the Christmas Tree. We are soooo related!!!!

Shooting for all the family

Something else which seems to have the makings of a family Christmas tradition is Clay Pigeon Shooting. This year we managed to get Helen and Mum along with us.

And with a bit of persuasion we managed to get Mum gun toting as well as the rest of us!

It was cold, icy and foggy, but we had a fab morning, great bacon sarnie and even hit a few clays!

The Vox go a busking

Tonight was the traditional Brighton Vox Christmas busk and meal. It was a most special evening as this was the last time we would be singing and conducted by Anna - blub.

We started outside the Fisherman's Rest in Brighton with a drink in hand and great resolve ...

however we soon got a little nippy and persuaded the landlord to let us sing inside, which was much better!

We then had an amazing Xmas dinner and got all teary as Anna gave us medals and a little speech about each individual member of the choir. She did look fab in the new hat we bought her!

Thanks Anna for all the hard work you have put in to the choir over the last five years!
