Thank you everyone else as well. I feel beautiful inside as well as out!
Anyway, on to more serious things. As you know we have quite a few interlopers in my garden and most of the time I am not too bothered as long as they don't eat my grass or salad.
We have 7 squirrels visiting now and one of them is very special indeed, just like me. We call him Roger. He is very happy despite his lack of ear flaps!
Look! Here he is peeping in the back door looking for some nuts!
He's rather a good looking fella!
Polite too, he remembered to say 'thank you'!
There's just the small matter of the packing to do!
So Mr Bear, I hope you have been following my carefully written instructions to the letter?
I have been rushing about all day getting MY things together. What precisely have YOU got ready?
Oh - just the Bear Essentials?!! I might have known!!
Actually I didn't really have to do all that much running around - my willing army of Mousie helpers have been a little less pesky than usual today. They got all my everythings ready while I had a light snack and a snooze, and another not quite so light snack and a snooze and . . .
So let's see how well they have done.
Glad they remembered the chairs - you never know when you might need a nice sit down and a restorative cuppa.
I'll just check there's sufficient beds - 1, 5, 17, 8, 23 - Oh yes, that seems just about perfect.
Deckchair, spare blankie, emergency wheeled cart (complete with integral helping hand device) . . .
Steam Iron, to keep my fur coats all smooth and crease free . . . tra, la, laaaaa.
That all looks to be in order. Well done me. I simply need to pack everything into this capacious traveling portmanteau, then, it's off we go.
Why are you all looking at me like that?
Ha - no problem with the packing. All you need is a little bit of Fairy Magic!
Hold tight Mr Bear - oh do leave those Duty Frees alone - we're off!
Keep a look out for my Holiday Postcards.
