(HB Wendy if that's an UMRAt rather than an Ambridgean.)

AIA in visualising Dan as rather like Jon Snow's son, the one that does
those documentaries about battles and the like - young, healthy, and
tall? I think _he_'s also called Dan, perhaps the reason for my
visualisation of him.

I think the Dan Snow you are thinking of is Peter Snow's son but I too
see Dan H-L as looking exactly like him!

Sorry, yes.

If I'm in doubt I head for my FWSE and try the name out there. If it
comes back connected to Ambridge or The Archers I consider it reasonable
to presume they are a character.

I was at an exhibition when I bumped into a musician I used to know.
How's <insert name here> ? I asked, thinking of the gurgling
eight-week-old son I'd last seen with him. Oh, he's doing quite well at
university, said his proud dad.

That's my trouble. I tend to remember people as I last saw them/ took
notice of them/whatever. I remember Daniel in his childhood and I'm
afraid despite the funny grown-up voice he now uses, that's still how I
picture him.

Quite. It is the growing up of young ones which seems to mark out time
for me these days. We went round to see our friends' newborn first
child a few years ago...who now seems to have a PhD, be nearing 30 and
pursuing a successful career as a research physicist.

I felt old when Mr Bliar became PM, he is (marginally) younger than I.

Or my new doctor who looks as though she is about 21 but apparently is
alleged to be over 30.

My Gorgeous Goddaughter, who turned 30 much earlier this year, is not
only married, but about to produce an offspring of her own. Although I
attended her wedding a couple of years ago, I still think the various
pics of her around my living room - ranging in age from about 3 months
to about 15 - are more likely representations than the wedding photo.

Not only that, but her ma, who was our favourite babysitter when we
were at junior school and is 10 years older than me, is almost old
enough to draw her state pension.

Wunderkind is in her thirties - but she is still our little Nutkin sitting
on the floor chewing the rabbit’s ear.... (framed photo on the chimney
breast in case you need to know).

My youngest is in his early 40s but I still frequently use some of his
baby words:

window silf
Wardrove
furshance (furniture)

My Granddaughter was a rich source of coinages.
Purquoins was a blue-green colour, a sweetie on a stick was a mummypop and
she had a special interrogative “whobody”, as in, “Whobody buyed me this
book?” The latter is perfectly logical, following the pattern of
“somebody” and “anybody”.

Which is why very small children's grammar seems to "fall away" for a
while. They learn phrases parrot fashion at first, such as "who bought
me this book" but then later on they begin to apply the rules of grammar
as they perceive it when they build phrases and sentences.

Wardrove survived with us, along with 'Spare's room'. I think several of
ours came from the husgod's childhood, he always spoke of going 'trepid
sploring'.

Your Jungle Sale reminds me of a friend's child who said she'd been
learning about the nakeds in Africa.

The ‘S’ was absent for a while so we had ‘waternails’ and ‘crews’ and there
were morning greetings of ‘Uwoh’ before the ‘h’ was mastered.
