After the sad demise of the SS Ibiza I would like to introduce her replacement the SS Ibiza II
As you can see I’ve upgraded my vessel to a model that is 20 cm longer 6 cm wider with power steering and a horn, which is most useful for the congested waterways of San Antonio
It’s a sad day. The SS Ibiza has sailed her last. She served me well and will be sorely missed after succumbing to a puncture. A repair kit costs more than a new one so with a heavy heart we send her to the boat graveyard in the sky 😦
As the famous rhyme goes Saturday’s child works hard for a living and by gum it’s true. Not more than a few days into my stay at Gran-Gran’s and she’s got me hard at work.
My favourite number is 8. I am now very good at recognising it wherever I go. I have spent the last week hunting it out in Gran-Gran’s house. And I’m pleased to report there are many – 27 to be precise (at last count): there are 2 on the freezer, one on the microwave, one on the cooker, 4 on the various telephones, 2 on the TV remotes, 6 on clocks dotted round the house, one on the swimming pool pump… To name just a few of them. When you start to look you find them everywhere. It’s a great hobby. I wholeheartedly recommend it. How many 8s do you have in your house?
Today marked a significant milestone – I swam, well floated, unaided for the first time. Four times in all. A little unsure about it, but I think I’ll get more confident over the next week and a half. Sadly I didn’t get a photo. But here’s a good one with me with my foot in my mouth.
Honestly, the problems of being an upwardly mobile toddler – you can’t sit in the paddling pool without getting your phone wet. Luckily Vtech’s a bit more robust than Apple, mine still works after a soaking!
Gran-gran was watering the garden this afternoon and got me with the hose… I was really sad when she finished. Hopefully tomorrow will be another watering day!
