Near the end of June, we went on a holiday to Norfolk. We were able to go on lots of walks as the beach was practically on our doorstep but unfortunately, Trudi was feeling ill so we decided to come back early. She is fine again now so she was able to join in on all the fun during the ‘Holiday at Home’ week. It was in the theme of animals and one day there was an obstacle course in the garden, Liz was dressed up in a lion costume with some of the other staff members dressed in different animal costumes for the race. I couldn’t miss out on this so I decided to join in on the race (I might have knocked a few cones!). I hope that you all have a great summer.
A very Happy Easter to you all!
Trudi and I always go for a short walk around the garden, usually before lunch, this is when I will do my quick inspection of the garden. First, I will examine the weeds and the flowers. Then I will go over to the pond to make sure that the fish are happy and have no complaints and finally, I will check to see if the fox has snuck into our garden again. When my inspection is complete i will go back inside just in time for lunch!
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.
