Sean Antonio Monteiro Colville

Yesterday at 13:30 Sandra gave birth to our son Sean naturally, he weighed 3.794kg (8lbs 6oz). Both Mum and baby are doing in fine and Sean seems incredibly contented, let's hope that continues when we get him home. Our daughter Emma met him last night and was really…

Back from Provence

We arrived back in England a week ago last Sunday, after a couple of days travelling up from Montfrin. We had a really good time, it's been a while since I've had that much of break from computers and the internet, and I really needed the break. It's always nice…

Emma's 3rd Birthday

Yesterday was Emma's third birthday party. Emma had a great day, she loved opening all her presents and playing with her cousin at her birthday party in the afternoon. I can't believe she's three already, Emma's grown-up so much in the last year, time has flown by so fast. All…

Back to a leafy, green and damp England

We are back from our little holiday to sunny Portugal. It was nice to see Sandra's family and spend some time taking in the sights. We were based at Sandra's parents home in Moura, in the Alentejo region which is about 3 hours from Lisbon. The weather was pretty hot…

Off to Portugal

Well I'm afraid I will be leaving you all for a week or so to go to the sunnier climes of Portugal. As some of you know the Mrs. is from Portugal and I will be going to meet her and Emma out there. If any of you know any…

Mr. Mugo and the snake...

One fine day we returned from town to find our cat Mr. Mugo playing with a strange and yet recognisable shape on our driveway. I first of all thought that it was a toy snake; you know the rubbery plastic ones, and we do have a lot of children in…

I've got my girls back!

It's great! I had a wonderful day-trip to Portugal and met my fiance and our daughter at the Airport. It was a very long day; I was up at 4.30am and we got back around 3.00am the next morning. We are all just glad to be home and…
