A rubbish story

Evening all. I am just catching some quality time at the keyboard whilst that man is fussing doing some chores. That is the way that it should be you know.

Anyway another weekend is coming to an end with some solid achievements behind us to celebrate. The London Lads have been liberated from their boxes and have run riot all over the Eyrie. They do feel better for it all. Here they are celebrating their new found freedom

That man and Uncle Tache had a very profitable trip to the shops on Saturday. UT has developed an obsession which is very far from magnificent. He is fixated on finding the perfect bin and so they had gone out to look for it one more time. Up and down the high street they trotted and they finally ended up in Beals in Poole. They headed off to the bin department but somehow got distracted in the fashion department which is strange as that man normally looks like a Scarecrow! Luckily sanity prevailed and the only shirt that UT liked he suddenly remembered that he had bought a couple of weeks ago. They finally made it to the top floor and they ended up buying a new bed and didn’t even end up with a bin. Some might say that this is a rubbish story but they can keep their little puns to themselves thank you very much.

We had a lovely day last week as our American fan club came over for a visit. It was lovely to catch up and the biggest Cliffie wingwave possible to all members of that particular branch and thank you so much for coming to see us. We hope that by now they are safely home again so let us hope that it isn’t too long before we meet up again.

To finish off this quick post we thought that you might like to see the scene from Poole quayside this morning. It is all right for some. That man claims to have seen a Seal from this spot a couple of weeks ago. He was called Humphrey (the Seal that is and not that man!) and was on his way to catch his breakfast. No picture exists and so we are a tad suspicious of this but we will see. Anyway this is a view of Poole harbour, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck Hills looking towards Corfe Castle. Nice eh?

A quick update for you all

Afternoon and welcome back. Another sunny afternoon here in the Eyrie.

I thought that you might like to see some more pictures of our new home which is coming along nicely.

This is the sitting room and my good friend Derek the pink Giraffe sat on the sideboard. If you look carefully you can see that he is very happy in his new home.

It looks a bit untidy but rest assured that this will be sorted out before too long.

We then move on to the dining room. This has become the resting place for all of the empty boxes and all the other bits and pieces that goes with moving house.

Finally it is a very sad sight.

Oh dear-It's happened again

Trust me it is nothing to do with me-no really it isn’t!

Our dynamic duo continue to explore the local area. On Saturday Uncle Tache was quietly painting a table with some paint that takes up to 16 hours to dry. He had left this out in the backyard. There was quite some rumbling in the sky and that man thought that the French had probably invaded (don’t ask why-I gave up years ago trying to understand his wilder flights of fancy!). Anyway they got in the car ready to go to the local tip having left the table out in the yard and the heavens opened. It really was a downpour that was quite tropical and lasted about five minutes. Needless to say the new paint job did not survive. Still it was quite spectacular watching it come in over the harbour. Luckily Bob the Sheep was in London so missed out on it all as otherwise he would have been out in it and I fear that he would have shrunk in all of that rain.

Meanwhile in other news my US fan club are in the final stages of preparing of coming to see me. That will be nice for them won’t it? Seriously Cliffiefest is being held in London next week. Safe journey to my fan club and a big wingwave to all concerned. Expect more updates as matters progress.
