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…

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!

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…

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…

My Uncle Matt had his birthday in the park in South London. He had a slip and slide, with real boats…

You have to shout ‘Aye Aye Captain’ when you’re in a boat…

Happy Birthday Uncle Matt! (PS your new girlfriend is very nice)
