Monday and Tuesday were filled with me going to work with Mom and going to the Doctor. Dad was out of country and our WiFi at home was down. Hence the need for me to publish 2 blogs this week (click here for last week’s blog).

I had 41 degree temperatures up and until Thursday this week. Granny stayed with me during the week because Mom had a new work project setting up an office in a new location.

Tuesday evening we collected Daddy from the airport; he presented me with two new trains for Take-n-Play, a Diesel and Gordon, both of them with Pull ‘n Zoom action. For the uninformed, this means that each had a carriage (or tender in Gordon’s case as he is a steamy) attached with a string to the locomotive. By pulling out the carriage, a small motor is wound-up inside the locomotive and off it zooms.

Dad managed to treat me to a movie on Thursday evening, because I was better and while we were at movies watching Monsters University in 3D, as Mom went out to a birthday party with some girlfriends. We ate popcorn during the movie and afterwards we bought some books for me at Exclusive Books. Dad and I ended the evening off with Haagen-Dazs ice-cream where Daddy read one of my new books to me.

Antibiotics and pain medications were dispensed and thank goodness I was able to function again by Friday because Mom arranged for us to go to Sun City for the weekend. It was the first time we’d gone on holiday since moving, and I must say we all love the lock-up-go feel of our complex – so easy.

We arrived late on Friday and left late on Sunday (we got home just in time to publish this week’s blog before midnight!)

We ‘beached’ in the Valley of Waves and played games; especially air hockey. I had been saving my pocket money for a few weeks and managed to have enough to buy myself a really big Sully from Monsters Inc. / University. He is almost as big as me. One of my most enjoyable activities of the weekend was the Hooked on Books show where we did the Gruffalow, some poetry and a Mr Men book. It was soooooo much fun.

Well, that’s me for this week – I need to quickly finish off and dash off to bed before I turn into a pumpkin!
