My little friend Azizali Baidaulet is 6 years old today.

He is the son of our Kazakh friends Yerlan and Zhanara Baidaulet who live in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Azizali has a baby brother or sister who is still in his mummy's tummy.

As of now he is enjoying his mum's and dad's full attention but he is never pampered or spoilt.

Azizali is a very cute-looking, well-mannered child, highly intelligent, who totally charmed us with his shy smiles and warm hugs.

He comes from well-known families of engineers from both his mummy and daddy's side. I guess it is not surprising that he loves to tinker with Lego bricks, taking on those meant for older children without much fuss.

His assemblies take up pride of place on the living-room shelf above the TV.

He enjoys his remote-controlled cars just as much too.

Azizali attends the Turkish International Nur Orda School in Astana where he learns English besides the other subjects.

Here he is being fetched from school on a frigid and blustery evening after mummy and totya had spent an afternoon having fun without him.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AZIZALI. Totya and Dadya miss you very much and hope to be able to come and see you again real soon.

Sorry Zen, off topic;

Georgina is a 22-year-old, working-class Londoner. She has considerable musical talent, is well-educated, and has a rather charming if shameless manner. On the other hand, she believes herself to be plain, dresses haphazardly, and is incredibly naïve on the subjects of love and flirtation; she has never had a boyfriend. She has an inventive imagination and loves children.

In fond memories of Lynn Redgrave;

RIP Lynn.
