Actio et Reactio

I have just realised I haven't blogged since Christmas which corresponds exactly with the day the boys started walking. Actually, it wasn't quite as neat as that. Edgar had a wobbly crack at it and George, realising the attention this garnered, stood up three days later and took 17 steps. Now, they are the embodiment of Newton's Third Law -- actio et reactio -- if one force acts upon a body then an equal and opposite force must act upon another body. Or in laybaby terms, I head for the beach, you head for the hills, mum stands in the middle shouting with the pram.
