Mon 20 Oct 2014: My brother and his little teeth

My brother Drum has some little teeth now, Two of them, like a rabbit.

So he can eat things like celery and rusks and bananas now.

He’s also liking Ella’s pouches, which I had as well when I was little. They still taste just as good as I remember from two years ago and my mum says it is still just as hard to wash the stains out of things… And Drum does quite often have Ella’s stuff stuck to his eyebrows…

Drum has been trying some new bottles as well. They are called Latch and are made by Munchkin, with a clever little valve at the bottom to stop air bubbles getting in which looks a bit like a blue diamond like a mermaid might have on her necklace.

My brother still doesn’t have much hair tho, just like Daddy…And has a bit more growing to do til he’s as big as me…

Mon 13 Oct 2014: Maybe the last ice cream of the Summer… @RubDiner

My Dad took us for tea at the Rub Slow Food Diner near where we live in Finsbury Park. They sell yummy food like burgers, pulled pork and ice cream sundaes but I don’t know why it’s called slow food cos ours came quite quickly and our waitress was super nice and got me a straw and a seat by the window…

I can’t remember what my Dad had to eat but me and Boo Rabbit had strawberry ice cream. Which might be the last ice cream of the Summer, seeing as the Summer has all gone away now and my Mum says the polar bears don’t make ice cream in the Winter.

Tues 07 Oct 2014: Our Crayola Magic Doodle Marker Mat

The nice people at Norton and Co sent us some toys to review. We thought we’d check out the Magic Doodle Mat from Crayola first cos it’s called Doodle, same as our dog…

It’s a cool mat you can unroll and draw all over, plus there’s a big pocket to put all your pens/secret stuff in and some straps that hold it all together so it looks all professional (or, as Mummy says, you can store it under your bed)

The pens are good colours: green for dinosaurs, yellow for sunshine, kind of orangey red for tomatoes or fire engines, and a purple one which my fox Bubble likes the best.

So you might be thinking here, why not just scribble on the floor. Or the walls, or the bits you can reach of Daddy’s car? (Or any of those colouring books you got for Xmas which aren’t anywhere near as excting)

Well, this mat is different as once you’ve drawn on it you can rub things out really easily with the eraser thingy that it comes with, or just wipe it all and start again.

It’s also quite soft to play on, so if you have a trainset like me you could draw a train track for it to ride on, or pretend you are a giant and draw some houses and cars to crush.

Mon 22 Sept 2014: Our Dorset Holiday

IMG_00003574_edit

We went on holiday for a week to a place called Dorset and stayed in a house called Hound Cottage, which was double amazing cos I had my own room and also cos the garden looked like Grandpa Pig’s garden in Peppa. It even had an apple tree, although my mum said they are called Crab Apples, which is obviously what crabs eat.

My brother and the dogs came on holiday as well…they let dogs stay at Hound Cottage!

Dorset is near the seaside; we went to Weymouth and made sandcastles then saw some donkeys – and we went swimming in an outdoor pool at a hotel in Lulworth Cove, which was about the best thing ever (well, not as good as ice cream, but…)

 

We also went on a ‘nadventure’ where we saw some ponies and maybe a dragon but we weren’t sure…

It’s tiring work being on holiday! This is me and Boo Rabbit having a nap…

Then Drum took his rabbit back…

PS My Dad got Hound Cottage thru English Country Cottages, who are ace.

Weds 03 Sept 2014: Our mini holiday at Hotel Du Vin @HdV_Brighton

We like staying in Hotel Du Vin hotels cos they let our dogs stay there too and they have great big comfy beds; big enough for Gruffalos and everything.

Daddy decided we should have a one-night-holiday at the Hotel Du Vin in Brighton, which is right beeeeside the seaside.

I went on a train on the beach and sat in the driver’s seat and rang the bell. Daddy said I rang it a bit too much, but it was rather a ringy sort of bell…

And Doodle jumped onboard a boat and played at being the Ship’s Dog.

We had a lovely dinner at the hotel (I had smoked salmon and most of Mummy’s chips) and we had ever such a nice waiter too, he even heated up my brother Drum’s bottle for us.

In our room there one one of those fancy baths with posh bubbles – so I thought it would be rude not to try it out…You can basically swim in it.

Now, I’ll just add here that nobody in the world likes hotel beds as much as my dog Huckle. My Dad says he’s a bit of a gentleman connoisseur and he has been on hotel beds in lots of exciting places. He thought this one was super – and so did my other friends Twit Too Woo Owl, Bubble (my fox) and Boo Rabbit.

(Me and my brother packed most of our stuff in our magic Pacapod bag – which comes with a foldaway changing mat you could sit on if the beach is rocky like Brighton is and also a bit in the front you can put your damp beach stuff into…)

Sun 24 Aug 2014: The @Just4TinyPeople Owl who came to stay…

Twit Too Woo the Owl came to stay with my brother Drum and me.

When he arrived, he said he was hungry from all that time flying in the post to us. We didn’t quite know what he liked to eat, but I told Mummy he probably liked chocolate pudding and coffee…

But my Dad took us to the park cafe for breakfast and Owl liked that!

IMG_00003244_edit

Then we took Owl to the seaside to a place called Broadstairs. We took him on the train – it’s a special fast train called the Javelin – and we had some apple juice together.

Twit Too Woo Owl had a little sleep with my brother…

IMG_00003249

When we got to the seaside we made some sandcastles…And I went in the sea with my Dad.

Owl said we should bury Daddy in the sand! He seems to be quite a cheeky owl, which is why we love him…
