Yesterday I discovered the joy of roly polying into the swimming pool from the edge! (much to the delight of the Big m who kept nagging me to mind my head on the side) I spent the whole hour perfecting my technique and am now a champion roly polyier.
Yesterday we took a trip to Knightshayes in Tiverton Devon. They have a very famous walled kitchen garden. In the potting she’d area at the top there was the opportunity to plant your own beetroots. Inigo and I both planted a pot and are having a race to see who’s grows the fastest… keep tuned for the results!
We went back to Abbotsbury to see the cygnets and we weren’t disappointed. They’ve already got almost 100 newly hatched swans and lots more in the pipeline
After a picnic lunch we turned our hand at the hazel maze and found some cool things like this xylophone
This week the Big D and I went to London for my kidney appointment. At hospital I met Mr Catastrophe and he made me a balloon alien for being a good patient.

We started off in the heritage centre learning about fossils
Inigo’s new favourite pastime is peeling the stickers off the Big M’s mirror. She started collecting and displaying stickers on the mirror when she was six – it’s taken 32 years of dedication to become the fine specimen it is today – and just a few minutes to desecrate it. Anyone have any superglue?
