Birthday Girl.

Today was little Ffion's second birthday. She's been demonstrating her potential to be a contestant on the X Factor. First photo is of the next Duffy lining up her new electric organ, totally oblivious to the expectant audience.

And here she is belting out 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' - her favourite number. Actually its her only number - apart from the sound track to 'In the Night Garden'. The house is full of Pinky Ponks and Ninky Nonks. Today's event would have really pleased the Prime Minister, in that it has been a 'fiscal stimulus' on its own. On second thoughts, most of these things are probably made in China.

And its not just the electric organ that Ffion has ambitions to play. She rather likes the idea of the guitar as well. She hasn't really got the hang of it yet - but I'm sure its only a matter of time. Next time we meet will be in Cork in three weeks time (that's where Ffion lives) when I expect a Mark Knophler performance.

The secret ingredient which produces this musical talent is the humble raspberry. She picks them up by sticking them on the end of her finger like a thimble. She's just finished hers and is eyeing up mine. I know, I know. They're all cute, but armed with a new camera, what do you expect.
