Mon 19 Jan 2015: Swimming at the Olympic Pool

Quite a lot of Sundays my Dad takes us swimming and we have started going to the pool at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park which is where the games happened the year I was born.

The pool is massive and really clean, plus there are lots of toys and floats for us kids to play with – all for free. And the showers are amaaayzing, I have to be bribed to come out.

Mum says not all the hairdryers work but that’s ok really cos Dad and my brother Drum don’t have much hair anyways…

It’s pretty hard work swimming, me and my brother had to have a power nap in the back of the car afterwards…

Fri 16 Jan 2014: My school trip to the fire station

Today we got to go on a trip to the Fire Station. They let Daddy come as well, so he didn’t miss out on the fun and have a tantrum or anything.

We got to have a go on the hose and sit in the fire engine to drive it and my Dad got to put one of the hats on.

But then there was a real live fire and the firemen all had to leave to go to the rescue and put the fire out! It was very exciting…

Fri 09 Jan 2015: My Twelve Days of Xmas

Belated Happy New Year and thanks everyone for following my blog and tweets. You’re all super awesome. Almost as awesome as Xmas itself.

I hope you were all good and Santa came down the chimney to see you (or even better, you heard reindeer dancing on the roof in the night like I did!)

This was what I got up to over the holidays:

Twelve muddy Xmas dog paws (Doodle, Huckle and Grandma & Grandpa’s dog Tess) and three waggy tails…

Eleven hundred thousand miles (well, 379.5 anyway!) in the car to see my family in Scotland (but we stopped off on a nice beach)

Can’t wait for the next Xmas to come ’round (but I’d better give my dad a little bit of a rest first..)

Frohe Festtage Auntie Dee @dendoesdalston

Me and my brother Drum love Auntie Dee very much.

She is lots of fun to play with and brings us presents and pretty shoes (although Mummy says we shouldn’t ask for things) and also she has a drawing on her belly in tattoo pen :)

Auntie Dee is German so they have Christmas tomorrow. If anyone else wants to say Happy Xmas to my Auntie Dee they can all wave now and clap their hands.

Tues 23 Dec 2014: Swing When You’re Winning @Pacapod

Lots of people have been very kind to us this year, giving us things to review, but I just wanted to say a special thank you to the people at Pacapod, who make magic bags.

When you do a lot of things – like I do – and your Mummy and Daddy have a lot to remember to do already (like mine do) like getting milk or going to work or finding their car keys and cufflinks then the last thing you want is to be out on an adventure and find they’ve gone and forgotten something important.

With Pacapod magic bags it is basically all packed into little pods and even my silly Mummy can remember to put my stuff and my brother Drum’s stuff into each pod… And I know that there’s still room for spare clothes and treats and my copy of the Evening Standard (which I get most days)

But they aren’t just for grown ups, and I have been lucky enough to get a magic bag all of my own, so I can carry my important toys like my foxes and Boo Rabbit and my new dragon – and a bit of rope for pirateing or catching a pony.

And the best thing about my bag is it is totally playground-proof.

I’ll prove it to you… Look!

Sat 20 Dec 2014: My Xmas show at school

At my school we did a Xmas show: we all wore red and made crowns and we sang ‘WishooMerryCrispmass’ and ‘Jinkle Bells’…

I didn’t like it at first but Daddy, Drum and Mummy came to watch me and I got to wave to them in the audience. Also, Tina, my teacher, let me sit on her lap.

(If you look in the picture below my best friends Freddie and Isabella are the ones next to me… Bella has a silver crown on and Freddie has a Xmas jumper and shoes like mine from Converse)

My brother really loves Xmas songs and wasn’t shy at all about singing and dancing. Like, he even danced at the disco at the end. Even to Pharrell’s ‘Happy’! Oh, he has so much to learn…

Tues 16 Dec 2014: Hoping Santa will bring me a new bedroom for Xmas @WHAT_hoete

We have been waiting for years for the planning to be approved for my new bedroom. A man called Anthony is doing the talking to legal people bit for us, he works for a company called What Architecture but it is taking forever and Mum says it might not happen now because they seem to have forgotten about us.

I really hope I get my new bedroom before Xmas, I have been dreaming about it for a long time. I am going to have the walls painted red like a fire engine and me and my pet fox called Bubble will be able to see out of our own window into the garden.

I’m only little but I have big dreams of having my own space.
