be a good choice for indoor, even outdoor in low/poor lighting etc.
Thing is I can't find anywhere in the UK with stock at a sensible

Shooting indoors with a 50mm has it's limitations. You will have to use shallow depth of field and inferior higher ISOs and there is a strong possibility you still won't have the proper shutter speeds to freeze your child in motion. I suggest you invest in any good flash and bounce of the ceiling. You still will get reatively natural images with good DOF and better freezing of motion. And you can ltrigger any of the flashes off the camera, so weight won't be an issue either.
