St Paul's Methodist Church. Guess where? Across the road from the MFA Houston! It looks Anglican. And then, the red-brick Adamesque Presbyterian church down the road looks Methodist. Odd swaps. Posted by Hello

A Renaissance angel at the MFAH - again Dad took these pics and I don't know the titles, won't even guess the artists unless I can. Posted by Hello

A Manet at the MFAH. In this I see the silence and isolation that everyone tends towards on lazy summer afternoons. Posted by Hello

FYI, my Dad took all the photos of the MFAH. He likes the action paintings and the Canalettos. This one, unhorsed! Posted by Hello

Definitely 20th century room at MFAH. This looks like a cast by Picasso, one of which was sold at Christie's last year. Also nice and shiny. Posted by Hello

Full dress, swords drawn. Some of the Royal Horse Artillery based up the road. They pass nearly every morning, usually in regular greens. Wonder what the occasion was for this? Posted by Hello

With Natty in November. It's always Nat who gets thrust into my arms. Nat takes after his dad, and Theo takes after his mum (my cousin). They're about 5 months old now and really active, learning to turn. Nat kicks, wriggles and sneezes (I have bruises and a cold right now from last week's visit.) Posted by Hello

See? Olivia and Christopher playing in the garden at Kingston, 1980. Posted by Hello

Speaking of babies, on the left there is my oldest friend and fellow-preemie Christopher, graduating from Cambridge way back whenever (that's his brother Matthew on the right)...Our Mums met in the maternity ward at Queen Charlotte's Hospital and have been firm friends ever since. Posted by Hello

If I put Michelle's pic up she will kill me, so here is my cousin-in-law Tony, their son Zack, and one of the twins. M & T have been together for over 10 years. They tried hard for Zack (who is now 4), and then after a miscarriage, got hit with twins. All without IVF. Posted by Hello

Cousin Michelle and Tony's new twins Theodore and Nathaniel in September. Posted by Hello

Serenaded on the train to Venice. They were tuneros from the Universidad de Salamanca, Spain on a tour of Europe. I must say, my name sits well in Spanish songs. Posted by Hello

Shiho and me at a restaurant in Verona, Italy, where we and another friend enjoyed 4 nights of opera and good wine. Posted by Hello

Dad and me cracking crab shells at Mum's apartment in Dallas. He came up from Houston to see me before I returned to London. After dinner we had a treat of baklava, visible on the table in front of me. Posted by Hello
