Some interesting ones here, a complete hot potch update for you all for the 2 little’uns;
Ollie’s Birthday Photos that were taken by the lazer shoot company can be viewed at; http://www.lasershootout.com/gallery/v/091017OliverLaserBDParty/
I just wanted to share this email from Ollie’s teacher that she wrote the other day. She had asked for a copy of his portfolio from his Year 2 to use as an exemplar for other students. I asked if all was OK still with him at school, and to make sure she looked at this birthday party photos on the blog and this was the reply: “Looks like you guys had fun in his ;arty. I had a look at the blog. Didn’t realise Oliver’s birthday came with some other memories as well. I think you’re an amazing Dad. You’re doing such a wonderful job with Ollie, Brian! I have never had to make any leeway for him on account of single parenting in the last few months. You have such a good rapport with him and of course he is a good kid! He is doing well emotionally at school. In fact, he’s being tightened by me every now and then because my expectations are higher from him. I just compared last year’s portfolio to his work now and there’s an obvious expansion of his knowledge base and abilities. It is such a pleasure for me. I am so glad I still have him with me.
Atima, thanks so much for these wonderful words – it means so so much to hear this, and makes me even more proud of him. Thanks so much!
Amy and Ollie were asked to be in a photo shoot by Sash Alexander, a Dutch professional photographer who lives in Singapore, and has Asian wife. He has decided to create a coffee table book full of about 125 people of all ages that are mixed race – European and Asian. So my two got asked to be part of it and hey presto this weekend we went to meet Sash and have the photos done. They’re not uploaded yet but check out the following link over next week or so to see them. The book is called 50/50 (& Thereabouts)
Well that’s it for today – back to work work work – aaaahhhhhh.
Love to all – Bri xxx
