Nick Park

I am going to ask Hannah to wear pigtails and walk on her knees so that I can have an excuse to go see The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

But seriously folks sometimes I, like the rest of youse, feel a bit iffy blogging about minor illnesses and falling into holes when there are major disasters occurring elsewhere. But that's what human beings do - get on with the silly business of living no matter what else is going on in the world.

But I admired very much what Nick Park had to say on the loss of all those precious models and artefacts when the Aardman storage warehouse burned down.

Mr Park, who won Oscars for animations such as The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave, said: "Even though it's precious stuff and nostalgic - and it's dreadful news for the company, in the light of other tragedies it's not a big deal."
Very nice sense of proportion. Well said.

We took monkeygirl to see it on Sunday. It was great fun. There were lots of adults without kidlings, so you should be able to walk in with your head held high without a munchkin in tow.
