Tour De Westcliff

IMG_1535And so the Tour De France starts tomorrow, Iz loves her little bike and takes to the park whenever she gets chance. She’s not exactly Street Hawk or BMX Bandits level yet but she certainly enjoys getting those wheels in motion.

I do love the fact that she is wearing her Muppets t-shirt though as it conjures images of Kermit and Piggy in a London park on their bikes in The Great Muppet Caper.

We’ve got a looooong hallway and she even sometimes insists on going up and down it, which never fails to evoke memories of The Omen or The Shining!

IMG_1537Back to the park, you can really see her determination as the grown man next to her ‘races’ her. To be fair Iz never was a great fan of the colour yellow!

Perhaps she’d have been a little quicker if Anxious the Elephant hadn’t been hitching a ride.

The Great Hatsby

IMG_1342Leonardo DiCaprio and co are hitting screens in the latest adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, sumptuously brought to life by Baz Luhrmann, the stylish Director of Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge.

Set in the 20’s it’s obviously big on style and fashion, channeling the surge of hats inspired by the remake of Gatsby, Isabelle (and friends) donned their own headgear…in a fashion all of their own.

IMG_1349With a startled dog, pink elephant in a dress and Isabelle’s fit of laughter it was certainly more The Great Muppet Caper than The Great Gatsby.

Yes, I did have to wear a hat, no I’m not adding the pics.
