New shirt!

My wife is fantastic. :)

Today we were walking through West Lakes mall, just passing the time while we waited for Wallace and Gromit to start. On a side-note, it's really good. We've seen a lot of kids' movies recently, Charlie (who thinks that the TV kid looks like the Logan twins from Big Brother? And look at the favicon for that Charlie site - haven't seen that Netscape icon for a while) and Sky High, and Shark Boy is on the list to see too. That's one I can happily miss. But there seems to be a lot of good films coming up in the summer too. Narnia (hope my 5yo isn't terrified by it), Chicken Little, Ice Age 2, Valiant, plus others I will have forgotten. And the standard seems to be improving too! I have to admit enjoying the three I've seen these holidays, and the previews for the other ones all look pretty good too.

So, we were walking past a sports shop, and I put my head in to see if they had Arsenal tops. I could see they had tops for other teams, like ManUtd and AdelaideUtd, and I was curious... Turns out they did, and they had a special on. So I have an early birthday present. :)
