I'm on the move - well, a little bit!

Hello folks

I just had to write to let you know that I managed to pull myself down a slide on my tummy today. Not once, but FOUR TIMES!! And I didn't have my usual crying fit, I actually was very very pleased with myself when I got to the bottom and asked for 'MORE"! I've been having physio twice a week lately and it seems to be paying off. I'm much stronger now, I just have to work on holding my head up for a bit longer. Do you know what evil Mummy did yesterday? She made me watch a whole episode of In The Night Garden on my tummy so I had to keep my head up. Honestly, I just want to watch Upsy-Daisy in peace.

I'm flying to France on Wednesday so will have lots of exciting stories to tell when I get back.

A weekend in Phuket

I have just got back from my first trip to Thailand - Sawas-dee-kaa ( That's hello).

Daddy had a meeting in Phuket on Friday so Mummy and I decided he wan't allowed to go on his own and joined him.

We stayed at the Indigo Pearl Hotel on Nai Yang beach. Daddy had to go to his meeting as soon as we got to the hotel, so Mummy took me down to the beach - she said she wanted to show me the sea. However, I saw the sea for about a minute and then the inside of a bar for another hour.

She met an 'old friend' called Mr Kobi and he persuaded her to have a few gin and tonics. We then went back to the hotel for an afternoon nap - mummy needed it more than me.

Although it rained for most of the weekend I managed to get to the beach for an hour and try out my new beach tent.

I liked Phuket very much and think I'll be going back there very often!

Bird Park and Raffles

We have a new camera, hooray! So you get to see my beautiful face again.

I packed a lot into this weekend. We went to Jurong Bird Park on Saturday. I have to say that, as a whole, birds are a pretty boring bunch of creatures. Especially the penguins. I was about to start showing my boredom by screaming how I wanted to go home, when I discovered the 'Talking Birds' corner. I found that if I bounced up and down the birdies copied me, and if I shreaked so did the birdies, brilliant!!

I also visited the tallest man-made waterfall in Asia. B.O.R.I.N.G.!!!!!

On Sunday I put on my posh frock and went to High Tea in the Tiffin Room at Raffles.

Unfortunately the Raffles Hotel only had posh high-chairs. Incase you didn't know, I am very fussy about high-chairs. I am very happy to sit in the cheap white ones from Ikea but hate any chair that comes higher than my back. Strange but true. So I thought I might have to ruin Mum and Dads tea as there was no way I was going to sit in that chair while they tried to feed me cucumber sarnies. Luckily the head waiter noticed my distress and decided that I was the cutest baby he'd seen for a while and took me for a walk to meet all of the other waiters.

Mummy says I'm a big flirt. It takes one to know one!
