Happy Easter everyone!

Today was super fun. I went on my first ever egg hunt… It was delayed from yesterday as the big m and d didn’t want to ruin my lunch – as I had already found an Easter egg or two to scoff in the morning.

The Easter bunny had laid a trail of eggs all through the house culminating in my bedroom. I was given a basket to collect them all.  There were loads.

Sadly I’m only allowed one a day after supper, but I did manage to pilfer a few for today… After all what are bank holidays made for other than to eat chocolate?


Edward’s new coat of paint 

Inspired by the Rev W Awdry

It was a quiet day in Sodor and Edward was minding his own business. Thomas puffed up beside him panting with exertion.
“Quick, move!” He shouted. “There are reports of a giant on the loose.”

“A giant” snorted Edward. “Don’t be silly, Thomas, they don’t exist!”

“Suit yourself” said Thomas. “But don’t say I didn’t warn you.” And chuffed quickly down the track.

Five minutes later, Edward wished he had taken Thomas’ advice as an enormous toddler ran towards him wielding an equally large paint brush.

“Paint” squealed the toddler, known as Wilfred. “Paint!”

And before Edward knew it, he was covered from head to toe in multicoloured poster paint.


“Oh no!” Wailed Edward. “My beautiful blue paint”

 Luckily another giant, this one much older, followed behind Wilfred and rescued Edward. She took him to the train wash and he came out good as new.

“Now you can be a really useful, blue, engine again” she said.

The end

The week that was

Last week flew by. We started to get back into a routine which baby Inigo has fitted well into. The big D was filming so granny and granddad came to stay to help out. The garden had never looked so good!

On Thursday when I was home all day we went to the playground where I played on the swings and slide – I loved it and didn’t want to go home.

Here are some action shots taken with Grandad’s new phone.

The big D was home on Saturday. It was great to see him. We talked a lot about trains and he showed me all his pictures. He’s off again next week.

Things that go bump in the night

I had a terrific adventure last night. I was roused from my sleep and taken on a magical mystery tour to a land inhabited by massive bouncy balls for me to play with. I had loads of fun whilst the big M hid behind a curtain.

Then even more exciting – when we got home again I got to sleep in with the big m and d and baby Inigo as there was a technical glitch with my room. So I helped Inigo prepare for bed, showing him how to brush his teeth.

I make a fantastic room mate… Talking long into the night, snoring and waking up super early. They don’t know how lucky they are. And they get to share with me again tonight. Yay!

Welcome baby Inigo!

It’s been a busy few days as I’ve been settling in my new baby brother, Inigo.

He was born on Monday and looked just like me … But bigger!

I’ve been showing him the ropes.

Here I am demonstrating how to chillax in his bouncy chair

And here I am showing him how to use his baby gym

And here I am with the big M teaching him how to sit on my lap.  
And yesterday I was showing him how to drive.

There is so much more for him to learn… I’ve got quite a job on my hands. But am looking forward to it.


Les moules

I’m thinking of accompanying the big d to Waterloo when he next goes since I’ve developed a keen taste for one of their eponymous foods – mussels. Here I am stealing all of the big M’s. I allowed her one.


World Book Day

I’m running a bit behind… It’s the busy life I lead!

But Thursday was World Book Day – we celebrated it at nursery on Friday. We were asked to come as a character from our favourite book, so of course I went as a duck – my favourite book being Five Little Ducks. The big M made me a duck shaped onesey) which bore a striking resemblance to the Honey Monster) and I looked very cool. I particulaly liked the orange wellies that we purchased to go with the outfit – very natty and useful for everyday life. They go particulaly well with blue trousers. Gok Wan and Trinny and Susannah have nothing on me when it comes to fashion.

Playing the waiting game

We’ve had a busy few days as granny and grandad came to stay just in case the baby came… But in vain. No baby. The big m is getting increasingly large and fed up.

So instead of playing with a new family member we’ve been going out for lovely walks and playing with the cats.

We even saw some Morris Men. I wasn’t sure about them!

Here we are hiding from the big m and d
Millie and I enjoying a game of chase the feather.

We’re still waiting for the baby but granny and grandad have had to leave to go and see the Flying Scotsman, so we’ll see them again next weekend.
