Alex and the animals

Yesterday, Anni and I took little Alex to the animal farm. He loved the swings. HATED the sheep. Got such a fright every time it went "BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" But then he marched up to it like a brave little man and we gave it some feed. Well friends, it's New Year's Eve! Hope you've all had a lush festive season? Tall One and I are battling off colds so we are celebrating by sticking up glow-in-the-dark stars in my flat and making videos of flying pandas. It's gonna be a cracker.  x

Panda's Crimbo in Cobham!

Ahoy! Here are some of the pics from our phones. As you can see, a certain someone kept photobombing us, scaling my Savanas and running round the fire with his underpants on his head.

I've created a monster. After he spotted me taking a selfie, he wouldn't stop. photo 20131224_180018-1.jpg

What I look like snapping pics. I seriously need a pair of overalls as I am usually crawling around in grass and weeds reeds. photo IMG_4616-1.jpg
He invited us to a tea party but he'd laced the mince pies with voddies!  photo panda2fw.png

Eish, just seen that little one is up to his old tricks in the background.

Christmas in Cobham

Jon and I decided to head to the hills for Christmas! We jammed carols by candlelight (so romantic and yet so disturbing as every moth in the mountains flew into them), got caught in a storm (I know Jon was secretly thinking 'Yeeessss!' He lives for a good storm. I was thinking 'My hair cameraaaaa'), swam in the icy river and by swam I mean, I half drowned Jon while trying to avoid being washed down a "waterfall", found ourselves in the midst of a traditional African Christmas which included Jon being handed a baby to look after (random but true), returned the baby, lazed in the sun, saw a double rainbow (epic), met some American hikers and petted the horses. I also conquered my fear of dodgy rope bridges by...crossing one! Special thanks to Jon for kindly stopping the car every time I saw some flowers on the side of the road. I must have looked ridic running down the back alleys of Himeville snapping rusting fences but what can I say, I love a good fence. Hope you all had a relaxing day yesterday? We took loads of pics on our phones too which I'll post next. (Some dicey selfies may be more interesting than a million tree snaps? I'm not sure!) x
