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!

The alphabet according to wilfred

I have a new favourite pastime – playing the alphabet game with foam letters.

I have a set in the bath and a set in the kitchen. I am now very good at recognising many of the letters and identify them through word association in the following order (the ones I don’t know I simply ignore):

A – Apple

B- bus

C – cat

D – dog

E- elephant

F – fish

H – house

G – garden

I – i

J – juice

K – kangaroo

M – mummy

N – naughty

O – orange

Q – queen

R – r

S- snake

T – teeth

U – umbrella

W – Wilfred

X – kiss

Merry belated Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! Sorry for the tardiness of the blog. It’s been a hectic few days… So many new toys, so little time!

I had an amazing Christmas!

On Christmas Eve the weather was still really mild so we took Gran-Gran for a walk around Stourhead. It was one of her favourite walks when she lived in Dorset and Grandpa was still alive. We worked out that she hasn’t been for around 17 years!!! Crazy! My mind can’t comprehend that long!

Before bedtime I put out a carrot for Rudolph, a mince pie and a glass of sweet wine for Father Christmas.

  I put it in the dining room as I figured that’s the main chimney in our house. I also put my empty stocking by the fireplace in my room in the hopes that he pays me a visit as on the whole I’ve been a very good boy this year!!

 And low and behold when I woke up the stocking was full of pressies… Magic!! Also the carrot and mince pie were half eaten – Father Christnas must have been thirsty though as the wine was all gone!

 We went to Church early doors and then I had a nap when we got home as I got up super early. After a sleep pitstop I got to open my stocking presents – which was really fun as we all took it in turns to open a present whilst eating smoked salmon and caviar and nibbles. I then had a few hours to play with my new toys. The domino train and ducks-all-in-a-row were my favourite. That said I was quite keen on the space hopper and play dough too. Not to mention the toy cars and bike.

GAS turned up at 3 pm and then we had lunch at 4, which was yummy…

 And then more presents … Yay!!! I love opening presents. Shame I now have to wait almost a year before I get any more!

Here’s Milly getting into the swing of present opening!

 I had a bit of a late night as presents took quite a while and I wanted to play with them but I did go straight to sleep!

The next day – no presents 😦 but we did get to go to the theatre to something called a pantomime. The big M was really excited. She loved it – as did we all. It was Sleeping Beauty and there was singing and dancing and shouting and fire breathing dragons and water spraying everywhere and even a homage to Jeremy Kyle!

On Sunday the big D and I built my new bed which gran-gran gave me for Christmas!

  It’s huge! And very clever. Apparently when I’m a bit bigger we turn it upside down and it becomes a cabin bunk. I am just playing in it at the moment but I intend to start having naps in it soon. I can’t wait to sleep in it properly.

On Monday Gran-gran and the big D got up super early to go to the airport so the big m and I stayed at home and played with my new toys and made my thank you cards – I discovered a new artistic medium – painting with toy cars! Super fun and super messy- yay!!!

Then today we went to feed the ducks and play at the playground at ninesprings in Yeovil. We haven’t been before and it’s really good so we’ll def be back soon

As you can see I’ve had a busy old time of it and I’m now looking forward to New Year!

Home sweet home

After almost two weeks away in London and Ibiza it’s nice to be back home. I’ve missed all the toys and teddy bears that I couldn’t take with me. And as you can see I’ve got stuck right back in reacquainting myself with them all!

Shape sorting 

I’ve discovered a new passion. Shape sorting. It’s immense fun and keeps you busy for hours. I particularly enjoy posting the circular shapes. Not so keen on the stars. The best bit though, is now I’m back in Ibiza I have a granny at my beck and call to empty the shapes when I’m done.
