dimples on wheels

I know it's boring, and I know it's lazy....and I do have things I want to write about. Deep, meaningful, contemplative, soul-searching conversations I want to explore with you.

But at the moment I feel as limp as a wet Spaniel's ear. So far this evening I have arrived home late from work, walked the dogs, emptied the washing machine, changed the bed and refilled the washing machine, cleaned the carpet of some particularly nasty spluff and splunder that was formerly attached to Charlie's feet, showered, cooked dinner (to the consistency of a comet), thrown it away and started again....and given the dust on the blinds a look so fierce that Paddington Bear would have winced.

And it takes 30 seconds to scan a photo.

So, do you think I like my new skates? DO YOU?!!!!!

Just a "likkle" excited aren't we? hehehe

You look so young in that picture and I have to say... My son is NOWHERE that dexterous. hehe

I have to say this picture is my personal favorite!

Melissa said...

If you were any cuter I'd eat you.

That came out sounding all wrong and terrible, but I mean it in the best way.

I really want some skates. Can I borrow yours?

Miladysa said...

Fantastic!!!!

I love this so much!!!

Absolutely classic! I want to use it to promote my new PR company but I guess 50p is out of the question :)

Wendy said...

WOW!! That is the BEST photo!!! The best! SO adorable, what an expression!! Is that reall you, or the child of Mrs. Mildew or someone??? How cute!! It must be you -- look at the hair, and look back a few posts - your hair hasn't changed a bit!

Deadly Female said...

Oh my that is just the CUTEST pic ever! And you were so little - and on roller skates!

AJH said...

Who knew they made skates that tiny! Not having children myself, isn't this something of a recipe for disaester. I feel sure you fell minutes later and still bear a scare on your knee. However, you do look absolutely adorable.

That's adorable...you are SUCH a cutie! :)

So, when you come visit all us bloggers, I take it we're all going roller skating? :)

Jessica said...

Colin, this makes me want to eat you!

Look at those legs?! And that face?! You are SO cute!!!!

leesepea said...

So what makes you smile like that these days?

Let us know, I'm sure we'd pool our resources together to provide it for you.

you look to be just about the happiest little child in the world at that point in time. i remember my first pair of skates, they were never as cool as yours. ;)

If you make greeting cards with this photo, I guarantee you will have a lucrative second income, this is the most priceless photo ever!!

Melissa and Jessica I will assume that the offers to eat me, are accompanied by a some fava beans and a nice Chianti?

Leesepea, I couldn't possibly answer that question, and retain my dignity (hahahaha).

And please don't be misled by any apparent cuteness. I'm reliably informed that I was a horrid little git as a child and the only reason I was given the skates was because we lived on a hill with a busy road at the end.

Aims said...

Wow. How big is your smile? You must have been so excited with your new skates. That is a cute pic. I for one am extremely pleased with your new scanner!

Jessica said...

Funny...I didn't even note Melissa's comment before I laid claim to my wanting to eat you - guess I should get in line!

"busy road at the end"....you kill me!

What a hilarious photo!

I hope you eventually grew into those pudgy knees??
