I have had a very eventful month so far. We had Jane staying in the flat with Dylan and Dora which was great! We were even able to go across the road to Chiswick Park for a walk together. They have left now so everything is nice and quiet and back to normal.
We also had a lovely shower of snow yesterday so Sr. Jennifer, Liz, Trudi and I all put our coats on to go outside and play, we had a lot of fun and I hope we get some more snow to play in!
Stuck in the mud!
Sr. Jennifer and I drove over to Richmond Park for one of our usual afternoon walks. When we got there I, of course, took off running around the park and I accidentally got stuck in the mud! Once I eventually got out of the mud and returned home it took four people to help wash me off. I’d like to say that this will stop me from getting covered in mud again… but it was too much fun!
I enjoyed a very fun day out at Virginia Water, what made it even more exciting than usual was that I was able to take my new friend Poppy!
Poppy and I had a very adventurous day as I showed her all of my favourite spots to explore, we also did a great deal of running around and chasing each other. Eventually, we both thought it would be a good idea to swim in the lake and cool down. The swim was very refreshing, although I don’t think Sr. Jennifer and Fr. Neil thought so as they were drying us.
Trudi and I occasionally get some special treats from Dave, the Chef. He makes a whole liver cake just for us!
Although, I never do get to eat it all at one time and we do have to make sure we stay still and sit up straight.
Sometimes, if we are lucky, we will get some treats in the morning when we go for a walk around the garden.
I have just come back from a wonderful holiday in Norfolk. I went with Trudi,
Sr. Jennifer and Liz it was a nice family get-away!
We stayed in a very nice bungalow by the seaside so we were able to go to the beach, I love going to the beach because there are lots of different smells. Where we stayed, the cliff was falling in so we couldn’t walk on the top! But there were lots of other beaches we went to nearby.
We also found a lovely place called Bacton Woods, I found a wonderful muddy bit which I really enjoyed, and I can’t say the rest of the family appreciated it. Trudi is always very good as she never gets wet or into trouble, but one morning while walking on the beach there was a huge rock in the sand and when we turned around we saw Trudi right on the top of it!
On the way home we went up to Holkham Beach, the tide goes out a very long way and I had lots of people to play with there, I had a very great time then after that it was time to drive back home.
Since I’ve been home I have had my 4th birthday and now feel very grown up, although of course not beyond being playful and loving.
I hope to write again soon.
My Day Off!
I had a very fun day off last week. I was able to go to Richmond Park while the weather was still quite nice and warm.
I love going to Richmond Park as I have lots of space to run around. After exploring the park for a little while I enjoyed a relaxing swim in the pond.
There was also a huge herd of Deer. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of them.
Visiting a Friend!
Last week, I went to visit a friend all the way in Lewes!
My friend, Red, is 10 months old and we always have a great time together. We went out on a walk in the fields and got really muddy! It was very fun, although I don’t think Sister Jennifer and Liz thought it was nearly as fun as we did. I hope we get to visit again soon.
I also had a very relaxing holiday not too long ago, we went to the Forest of Dean and were able to go exploring a bit. I enjoyed this very much, apart from the daily showers I had to have because of all the mud. Unfortunately, we have no photos as we forgot the camera, let’s hope we have better luck next time!
I started October off with a great holiday! I went with Sister Jennifer, Liz and Trudi to the seaside in Kent.
I had lots of fun there because I could run along the beach as well as go for a swim, the first day we got here I ran straight to the water and the waves were so big that I got drenched! It was scary the first time but after that, it was really fun. Trudi and I even got treats while on the beach!
We were also able to see the sunrise because we woke up so early and took daily walks, it looked beautiful.
Going for a swim !
Trudi and I went over to Chiswick Park for our usual afternoon walk, we also took Sister Jennifer with us, it was very nice and sunny outside. After running around for a while it was starting to get too hot, so I decided that I wanted to take a swim in the pond, Trudi must not have been nearly as hot as I was because she didn’t want to jump in. By the time we got back home Trudi and I were very tired and took a much-needed nap!
