I'm not even a teenager yet and already I've got flippin' acne!
It was all red and nasty and my folks were a bit worried for a while. Thankfully I've been to the doctor and got some cream and Mum washes my face with a cotton ball soaked in cool water twice a day so that it has started to get a lot better.
I've got some photos on flickr so you can see how I'm looking and what I've been up to. The address is:
Come and see!
I've got a sweet new ride - the ERNIE-MOBILE!!!
You can almost see it in this picture - I go in the back seat, Daddy sits next to me, my buggy goes in the boot and Mum drives us around on all our adventures...I've already been to Wolverhampton (woo-hoo?!) three times in the past week to help Mummy set up her MA show.
My mate Charlie outgrew his boing-boing so he gave it to me.
Now my Daddy can take me out for some fresh air.
One day I hope to be able to see where I'm going.
You may also notice that I am wearing my new hoodie - none of my new clothes fit me yet so Mummy bought me this to keep me warm...
Mummy normally cries when she sees me in big boy's clothes because she thinks I'm growing up too fast but at least I won't look out of place when I'm hanging around Selly Park. All I need now are some sovereigns and a mobile phone...I just need to figure out a way to get my olds to buy them for me...
Flippin' 'eck, they're coming from everywhere!
Last week my second cousin Leslie came to visit me all the way from Washington.
We had a lovely day together and I took her to the Kitchen Garden Cafe (they don't mind if Mummy feeds me in there). I got a bit over-excited and knocked over a glass of water!
It was really nice to see her (even though I slept through most of it) and she brought me a really gorgeous sweater from Edinburgh from one of the stalls at the Festival. We were very sorry to see her go. I would love to go and see her in Washington DC but my folks are too poor :-(
Hopefully we'll catch up in New Zealand when I go on holiday to see Granny Jen, Poppy and my Great-Grandies...
A lot of people from all over the world want to know what I'm doing, where I'm doing it and who I'm doing it with...
People ask after me all the time and being a busy, on-the-move little man, its hard for me to keep up with my everyone, so Mum agreed to help me set up my own blog. That way, you can globally access all things Ernie at any hour of the day or night.
I hope to regularly post news and pictures and occasionally the odd video so you can see what I have been up to - I'm not getting any smaller you know!
