At the airport in Stansted waiting for our plane… and here it comes already!
We went to see my mum’s mum in Germany and I could see my friends!
This is in the front garden, I loved this long grass!
I met ‘Brauni’, he is my gran’s teddy and we enjoyed some wonderful cuddle time together!
This is “Petzi” my sister’s very old Steiff Teddybear… he must be about 53 years old…. oh yes I can see some grey hair…. hehe. He is lovely and still dressed in my mum’s old baby clothes. He has got plasters on his paws as the straw was falling out, but his heart is a pure loving teddy heart. We did have a great chat and a lovely time together…..and when mum wasn’t watching……. we got up to bit of mischief.
I climbed all the bushes in the back garden…. lucky I had fur it was quite cold for August.
This is the town and every time my mum visits they have changed the roads or put up new buildings. This tower is one of the old towers and part of the town wall which went all round the town. Opposite is the brand new Town festival hall. A very big building I thought.
At the end I found a picture of my mum being about 21 then… I couldn’t help myself and sneaked it in the post… hope she doesn’t notice!
This is me on our way home again…. quite exhausted….
Another day we went sailing….. to China… to get some tea.
… we visited an English tea clipper the Cutty Sark from 1869.
I think my mum did already mention it in a blog post before but now we went inside this big Sailing ship.
It was amazing!
There were Tea chests, many ropes, and I had so much fun exploring the ship!
We could also walk underneath the ship, as it is all newly restored….. that was a view!
Definitely worth a visit!
When you come to London, I can take you there!
While we are talking ships….. my mum wanted to put more pictures from the second day of the festival on…. she did have more fun and more fireworks. She enjoyed it so much !
Thank you to all my blogging friends for being here.
I haven’t told you lately how important you are to me and how you make me smile and my life happy.
Thank you for being you!
Love you all!
Many hugs from my heart!

As you may have seen on “my beautiful things” blog the tall ships regatta started in Falmouth and sailed to Greenwich.
The Royal Borough of Greenwich is celebrating the largest fleet of Tall Ships to visit London in 25 years.
The start of the Festival was yesterday evening with music and fireworks.
The grounds of the historic old Royal Naval College was transformed into a huge aquarium filled with giant illuminated fish in a stunning underwater spectacle performed by a street theatre company.
As it was night, the pictures didn’t come out so well, but the atmosphere and ships I saw were amazing.
After the fireworks many ships passed us, including the Mercedes!
Here are the pictures….. (I might go tonight again for more fireworks…. and tall ships…. and pirates!)
Click on the pictures to see it better.
… and I met Jack Sparrow….
The fireworks were even better with my favourite music of Two Steps from Hell! I was in heaven!
A super evening out!
We went to see more and I was so happy to get out again with mum.
This time I saw the Olympic Park, that was amazing. the weather was nice too… well most of the time!
There are beautiful flowers, plants and walkways.
This is the Olympic Aquatic Centre which has a funny shape. My mum and her sister went swimming in there too and they loved it. Mum wants to go again soon, she so loved the long 50 m lanes…. and the hairdryers… apparently. :-)
Then we went with the cable car over the Thames, I loved the view, I could almost see my house from there!
You can see the famous Dome behind me where they filmed a scene of a James Bond Film once.
All ended with a wonderful glass of Champagne with High Tea and the best view from the 42nd floor of a building in the middle of London!
The view was breathtaking and the Champagne made it even more fun!
My mum with the tallest building in Europe The Shard!
London is so much fun and there is so much to see…. and we have not finished…..
See you soon!
You all know me as the bear who went to Spain last year to meet Manny from California. Well, Manny has run away to China, hope he enjoys it.
I had a lovely holiday here in London with my mum and her sister. I saw many places I have never seen before. I was so lucky and happy that I could go with them.
First we went to Chislehurst Cave that is where that photo was taken and I didn’t remember.
A man made cave from the Saxons then the Romans extended it for finding flint and the it was used in the 2nd World War for 50 000 people. It was rather cold and so many ways you could easily get lost so we had to follow the guide with the lamp as there was no light.
She did say “every last Thursday of the month they look for lost tourists”, but I didn’t want to stay that long…..
Then we had a picnic in a park just in time as the heaven opened with lightning and thunder.
We visited Danson House which was a Georgian house and had a Victorian kitchen where I had some fun…. as you can see:
Well I was allowed to go and sit anywhere yay!
After that my mum went with her visitors to Buckingham Palace. I wasn’t allowed in there…. it was rather posh my mum said and she thoroughly enjoyed it ( specially the cake with the crown) , she brought some pictures back to show us.
Well enough for today…. I hope you enjoyed the little tour as much as I enjoyed all the travels.
Soon more from me!
See you soon!
RoSy loves frogs!
I got 2 new lodgers in my garden as I re-did my tiny little space behind the house.
My hammock fits in and I have some green… this is my little oasis!
Enjoy my garden with me…..
I love those frogs …. here with my little water feature!
We are all very happy out there!
… just need a bit more sunshine!
This is a shot at night with my lights!
Hope you are enjoying your Summer/ Winter, where ever you are !
I was having so much fun in the holidays….. but can’t remember where I was…
can you help me?
… just give me a clue… I might remember then…
My mum also had a great time with her sister and couldn’t read many of your blogs unfortunately …..
she will get back to it after next week…… We will until then have more adventures and fun!
I will soon show you more of the adventures I had, that is if I can remember…. surely my mum can! :-)
Summer here we come! again…. :-)
Yes, another dream came true.
One of my dreams always was to possess a hammock, ( in between 2 palm trees ideally)
Since I don’t live in a palm tree country… and could’t find any on Amazon :-) I had to improvise
I did find a lovely hammock with a stand.
I have changed my tiny garden to make it a bit nicer, and with the sunshine in August I can lie in my hammock close my eyes and I am in heaven… well where ever I like to be.
this is not mine….not my garden… :-) wished it was…
My hammock – trying it out in the front room….
and in the garden….
I love it and it is a little oasis in the busy world we live in.
Enjoy the moment as Meister Eckhart says:
Enjoy the NOW, enjoy every moment!
Sonel gave me my idea for this pet challenge week… and she knows how much I love monkeys…
I rounded up my monkeys while they were monkey-ing around the house.
On the clothes rack….
On the bed
Clearly you see that they are good pals and always do mischief together!
on my newly acquired hammock! – holding tight so they don’t fall off….
Well the two had lots of fun posing for these pictures.
Well… we are off to monkey around a bit more.
Have a fun filled day!
I shall enter these into Michelle’s weekly pet challenge this week!
