A bit of a cheeky title really, but we have been watching the BAFTA awards this evening, scouring every table for views of our daughter, Ruthie who we know was there and our nephew, Tim Cragg, who should have been there but we didn’t see him either… !

If you look at the awards on his website you’ll see what I mean.
