Relaxing in the garden after his journey.
Having a little liquid refreshment.
Emailing Monkey and Darrell to report his safe arrival!
He arrived with his own toys, sweeties (which I suspect he'd opened, had a few and then resealed en route - he smelt so sweet. How do I know, well I had to hug him 'hello' didn't I), adoption certificate, list of likes and dislikes and of course his very own holey stone hanging round his neck. Also beautifully dressed complete with the cutest pair of little shoes.
For anyone who thinks I've totally lost me marbles - hop over to Monkey and Darrell's brilliant blog. It's my first hop of the day and is sooooo funny, you might be hooked! Marvin will be looking in, but no way do I intend to post much here about Marvin - no-one can emulate (my big word for today) Monkey and Darrell's blog - but I had to at least introduce Marvin. If you don't already look into their Mum's blog 'It's All Fiddle Fart' - I do recommend it - Helen has so many bright ideas I often wonder what she'll come up with next!
I popped into our local charity shop yesterday for a mooch around and asked a friend who works there where the baby sized clothes were. When she asked why and I replied 'For clothes, for a monkey' she just gazed at me, shook her head sadly and said 'Whatever Di. Over on the left, towards the back of the shop'. And success, I found a teeny little denim baseball cap from NEXT for Marvin :) 'Would you like to come round for coffee and some crafting next week?' she said as I triumphantly paid for the cap. 'Great' said I, to which she added 'I think you need to get out a bit more'!!!
