A Princess and a Fairy Godmother ....


Remember last time she came to visit????


We've known Charlotte since we were babies ... her Maman and my Mama met on Internet when they discovered we both have Jacobsens Syndrome ... and also discovered that they get on like a house on fire!!!!!!!

"Happiness is .... a doting Maman!"

Charlotte ... let's pose!!!!!!!!

The Princess Duette ON SHOW!!!!!!!!

Throw a couple of Prince's in the background - and Bob's your Uncle!!!!!!

"Look!!!! It's Lala over there Charlotte!!"

Ooops Silly Me!!!

It was Mama in her silly yellow clothes!


"Maman ... these people are quite strange don't you think?"

(dixit Charlotte quietly)

Especially that one down there ...

(dixit Charlotte not quite so quietly)

She's almost as noisy as her Mother!

This one is jolly handsome though ....

hmmm ...

"how old are you young Prince?"

Right ... bored of posing now

Time for real business : PLAYING

"I've seen a few of you guys round here"

dixit Charlotte

This place is LITTERED with Teletubbies!

"Maman ... that lady is a bit scary ... she keeps wanting to smother me ..."

Thank goodness she decided to grab hold of my Maman instead!!!!!!


Charlotte leaves for the Alpes with her Maman and Papa
for their summer holidays
and then

ENTRANCE : Fairy Godmother for a barbecue lunch!!!

I'm so excited I fall asleep!

I love my fairy Godmother

Her other name is 'Helen"

Nothing quite like the warm lovin' of a Fairy Godmother eh?

She does tend to laugh rather loudly though ...

.... no wonder her and Mama get on so well!

Birds of a feather flock together! .....

FAIRY GODMOTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Your Kyle keeps picking me up uhhhh!!!!!!!!!

"Put me down"!!!!

Gosh, that was a truly wonderful weekend!

Thanks Charlotte, Stephanie and Xavier for being such great buddies : the Bernard Bunch loves you lots and lots and lots and LOTS!!!!!!!

Helen, Philippe, Kyle and Clement : thanks for being SO MUCH FUN! You wild bunch you!

NATHAN wait for meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
Gosh I'm getting of there
those boys are a bit rough
they mistook me for a rugby ball!

oooh girly friends!

oooh this lady is nice - she has totally adopted me!!!
(God only knows where Mama is)

After a sporty day - time for swimming classes with Bernard! He taught me how to overcome all my water anxieties!

He did a great job ... cos now I jump in all the time, much to my brother's dismay!

I had a lovely time ....

I've had a hard day ....
can I go to bed now please????

(please ignore the mess - I have just learned the art of redistributing my toys just after Mama has tidied them all neatly in their boxes ....)

A sad day for the Bernard Bunch

Remember Electrode?

William's pet and much loved friend, Electrode the Guinea Pig?

Alas, he left us ... for Guinea Pig heaven ...
William made a beautiful grave in the garden, near his bedroom window so he can always see him ...
This is what his tomb stone says :
Electrode Bernard
Will always be in our thoughts
2007 - 2009
William is very, very upset....
He spent the whole evening praying in front of Electrode's grave, and talking to him ... asking him why he left him so suddenly ....

I gave William loads of hugs and kisses and that made him feel a bit better ... but William talks about Electrode all the time.
RIP Electrode!
