Pincer grip.

Yes I think Gruff’s coming along nicely with that.

Like a skyscraper…

Legs and company.

Yes, our dog is a secret yoga master.

Peek a boo.

Gruff’s stone.

This is Gruff’s stone. He found it on the beach on Sunday.

So far the stone has gone everywhere with him. It has enjoyed a journey to school, a trip to a swimming lesson (luckily I persuaded Gruff not to take it in the water with him), various breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and some lovely bedtime stories.

Unfortunately the stone was left at my friends house today in her dog’s basket but I understand it is being very well looked after.

Really just a matter of distracting a lonely boy missing his stone now.

He-man has the sniffles, he’s on the mend but he’s been feeling very sorry for himself. All this rain hasn’t helped, the poor dude hasn’t had time to dry out in months.

Head lice.

Are you scratching yet?

All aboard…

… although there may be delays caused by a dog on the line, very common around these parts.

Love is…

…those three dudes on the sofa watching Doctor Who.

Apparently, everything can be paused, even dreams…

The king and I.

Nothing like a crown to let everyone know who’s the boss eh?

Book snuggles.


Under water.

Holding your breath under water is fun, once you get over the fear!

Watching the winter olympics.

It’s all about the rainbows in this winter olympics. Everyone’s wearing and talking about them.
I don’t think they allow many rainbows in Russia, shame really, they’re quite lovely and no threat to children at all.
So here is a great big rainbow.

…with Fireman Sam sunglasses. You can take them off now Bonnie, I think Gruff finished playing dressing up an hour ago.

Farty pants.

Girls do it too but they just pretend they haven’t…

Lovely bubbly.

Arnie loves bubbles, just don’t go to close to that water or it could end badly!

I’m thinking of attaching a rope around their waists if this wind continues.



Someone to watch the raindrops with.


Soggy chips.

Sometimes you just know when it’s time to go home.

Gruff’s put all of his trinkets in a special box of treasure.
These include; a little toy dog, a sea-shell, a micro fibre cloth and 8 pence in change.
Treasure indeed.
He’s sleeping with his arm around the box tonight just in case the pirates try to steal it.
