Chipmonk's tea-party - Princess fashion

I was a goat in a previous life, I'm sure

"Princess Goat"
Mama says there are more flattering titles
Like what?
"Princess I-love-to-chew-on-the-yogurt-lid-for-hours-on-end"?
I don't think so!

I think that whoever invented spoons is a pillock.

Look! No hands!

These sticky-out thingies on my juice are fun. They make entertaining rattling noises on the inside of the box if you shake it around enough ...

when Mama lets me get within reach of it, that is ... which isn't very often

....good thing I'm such a super sleuth and able to foil her attemps to prevent me from getting my mits on that magic juice-spills-every-where-if-you-squeeze-it-enough box

Mama is quite proud of myself at the moment.
I am starting to take a real interest in feeding myself.
With my hands of course, not that silly spoon thing.

"Mamaaaaaa ... can I have another yoghurt lid please?"

Look, who's the Princess around here anyway?
If I can't have my own way, then I'm clambering out of this (increasingly tight) high-chair, and am off to sulk ...

My wild and indeed international flora and fauna

Remember my old friend Willow? Well she has happily settled down in the home of the Canadian playmobile about 50km South of Lyon ...

look at her showing off here in her new abode!

And now look!! Another beautiful tree has become my namesake! Look!


And guess where this "Abigail" tree is today?

In San Antonio, Texas!

Yes, that Texas country not far from Mexico .... ain't that something?

(that was me trying to sound American).

Thank you Dr Boucher for giving me such a great honour!

Not just a great therapist, but a pretty funky gardener too!

Moving on ...
.....allow me to introduce another of my great friends ....


(um ... he's the slightly smaller of the two creatures below)

and my other great friend

"Hot Dog"
(she's the one with the slightly wider-open eyes)

I get to spend lots of quality time with Electrode, William, Hot Dog and Nathan ...

I have also, of late, become something of a bird-watcher.

You may remember Mama inherited two canaries about a year ago... well their home and family have expanded .... as you can see, they have all been very busy!

I am particularly fond of the bullfinches. Can you remember how incredibly tiny they were just a couple of weeks ago? And now look at the huge great things - I reckon they've been snacking on William and Nathan's four-cheeze pizzas - which I will confess I am becoming quite partial to myself, as it happens.
They don't really look like baby chicks any more do they? Yet they aren't even a month old yet!

And this is the bullfinch baby with his Papa ... are they cute or are they CUTE???

OK, so moving swiftly on from Mama's boring passion for all things with feathers (including Boa's - her mate Becka Boo suggested it was time I had my first, so watch this space, I could be sporting a purple diamante one before long).....
I have my uttered my fifth word!
You may remember that my current vocabulary stands at :
1. = "Mama"
2. = "Papa"
3. = "Ravwahr" (Au-Revoir = French for "Goodbye")
4. "Il est la" (= he/she/it is over there)
Well I now have a fifth word!
5. = "Na Naaan"
What do you mean: "What does that mean"?
It means "Nathan" of course.
off to learn some more words now!
toodle pip!

Can you tell Mama is frustrated at lack of Internet?

Mama is so frustrated at lack of Internet access that she has decided to launch a silliest joke contest .... just for the sake of it really. In many ways, I'm not looking forward to growing old enough to figure out why - oh WHY - she is cracked up on the public library floor because of these silly jokes. Yes, she is really having hysterics on the library floor. And all because of this email she received:

1. The roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi. 2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian. 3. She was only a whisky maker, but he loved her still.
4. A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class because it was a weapon of math disruption.5. The butcher backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.
6. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
7. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering.
8. A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.
9. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.
10. Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
11. A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall.The police are looking into it.
12. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.
13. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, 'You stay here, I'll go on a-head.'
14. I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger.Then it hit me.
15. A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab centre said:'Keep off the Grass.'
16. A small boy swallowed some coins and was taken to a hospital. When his grandmother telephoned to ask how he was, a nurse said, 'No change yet.'
17. A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.
18. The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium, at large.
19. The man who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.
20. A backward poet writes in-verse.
21. In democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes ..
22. When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.
23. Don't join dangerous cults, practice safe sects.

So WHAT, prey tell, is so funny?

Interrupted secret diary entries

Mama's computer is agonizing .... she hasn't been able to get it to function properly for over two weeks now.

stark-raving mad

Not only has she not been able to help me write my oh-so-secret diary, but she and I DEARLY miss catching up on all our blogging friends news.

But be warned : YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!

As soon as she finds a solution to the home computer situation, you will all be BOMBARDED with comments!!!!

Pink blue and green

I was so pleased! Mama finally rolled in last night .... I was so excited to see her I screamed out laughing, much to Mama's surprise and joy!!
And she brought the Bernard Bunch back a lovely present .... tulips. Black ones. She looked like she was waiting for us to look excited ....

but none of us were. When will she understand that we simply do NOT share her passion for all things gardening ??? .... ho hum!!

Hey guys, did I tell you that before she left, Mama's bullfinch eggs all hatched? Look, this is what they looked like last week .... they make a LOT of noise considering how tiny they are!

This is what they looked like when she got back.

I get up to such wonderful adventures with my brothers when Mama's not around!

My scribe goes gallivanting

Mama left for Holland this morning for her work ... which means I won't have my scribe at home for a while. She promised me she would send me lots of postcards though ... I miss her already and I SO know she is finding it hard without her precious Princess !!!!!

Physiotherapeutic Memory Lane

Remember Claude??? My favorite physiotherapist who I would visit twice a week from the day I was born until my second birthday?

Well.... I gave him a surprise visit ... he was so moved to see me he knocked the sweets all over the floor!

Claude observed me in amazement .........and couldn't believe how much progress I had made! Don't forget, last time he saw me, I still wasn't quite walking .... and here I was clambering all over his Cabinet and getting up to all sorts of physiotherapeutic mischief!

"Ummm... Claude ... I don't think Dr Boucher would approve of this seat you know. My feet don't touch the floor. Better make amends to that pretty soon!"

We were both really pleased to see each other again ....

Au revoir Claude ... et a bientot! Maman et moi t'aimons beaucoup!!! et puis ... on va mettre la pression a la maison pour que Papa revienne te voir aussi ... l'armee des filles Bernards a l'attaque!!!
