Daddy, Nana and Grandad are from (Northern) Ireland. I need to teach them lots of things due to the differences in culture when they are in England.

This is me teaching them about shenanigans - Nana in particular is a natural.

As some of you know, it is important to take regular exercise, particularly in later life when the joints are prone to seize up. I believe in taking a proactive role in my family's well-being and leading by example.
Ok people, let's work!
Not only does a brisk walk keep you trim, it gets the circulation moving, gives you plenty of fresh air and puts colour in your cheeks!

Some bloke called Morris

I took Mummy, Daddy, Nana and Grandad to Compton Verney again because its been about a year since I was there last. It was brilliant!  Not only we have some nice scran at the cafe but the waitress fancied me and gave me some free was abso-flaming-lutely delicious!  What I want to know is why have I not been given ice-cream before. Mum? Dad?

After lunch we went outside to watch some bloke called Morris, dancing.

It turns out that there were LOADS of people called Morris dancing...some of them were even girls!

It was bloomin' interesting, I can tell you!

Then one of the
ladies called Morris put this hat on me and asked my Mummy if I would like to be called Morris and dance too!

SoMummy and I decided that we wouldn't mind being Morrises if it meant we could dance together and wave some big sticks around. I have no idea WHAT it was all in aid of but it certainly made Mummy very happy and very tired and you know me, I do like a dance - especially if banging things is involved...

That done, I decided it was time to give Daddy a good work out...catch me if you can Daddy!

Birthday Lunch

Sandwell Valley Park Farm

Ooh whats that Daddy?

On my birthday day I did lots of cool stuff...and some scary stuff too.  Mummy and Daddy took me to look at some animals in their houses. Some of them were very smelly and didn't appear to have any indoor plumbing...

"Hello there Ernie! Happy Birthday!!! 'Scuse the mess, I weren't expectin' no visitors..."

I tell you what, I didn't like the cows very much.  One of them was big and made of plastic and I just didn't like the way it looked at me ONE BIT- especially after Mummy freaked me out in the gift shop by putting on an owl mask and then whipping it off again...

Thank goodness they had a puddy cat! A bit of normality in amongst all this weirdness!!

Luckily I was able to cuddle Daddy all the way around the farm because although he would never admit it, I think he was a little bit frightened and needed a bit of reassurance.
