On the spur of the moment - unusual for us - we took Humuhumu and Keiki in to Birmingham on Saturday by eco-friendly means (bicycle followed by train). We had a noodly lunch, went owl-hunting and finally headed to the Ikon gallery to look at some very modern art. Humuhumu was particularly affected by the soundscape exhibition. When we sat down to have our afternoon snack, she took the pencils and paper from her Art Explorer pack and produced a "swimming pool" drawing. There were a lot of water sounds in the exhibition, so I was impressed that this was what she took away from it.

We then devoured buckwheat pancakes with clotted cream and strawberries before taking the train home to make bread.

That really is a stunning image, her expression is delightful. Would you enter it into any appropriate competition?

Aw, thank you. I would, although I'm not sure the original's high enough resolution (about 1800 x 1800) as I took it with my phone.

We did see many owls! About 15 or so. I took photos - I need to make a post out of the owl photos, as we saw some at the university this weekend too. But I just braindumped a locked entry so I shall save that for tomorrow. :)
