Oh, I’ve been busy, we had the family up for Christmas day, Pamela, Richard, with the two boys Charlie and Oscar. I can tell you there has hardly been a moment of quietness when we are all in the same room together. Well, that’s maybe an exaggeration because on Christmas Day they put a pair of antlers on me and here I am playing a reindeer and Charlie in his PJ’s.
Neither Charlie or Oscar have the benefit of having a dog near them down in their own home so when they are with me they are With Me! This is Oscar and he knows I just love being tickled underneath my front legs and here he is doing it when I’m resting in my blue bean bag in the kitchen.
In the evening when they are undressed and ready for bed, I like to sit in my orange bean bag in front of the fire in the studio. Both Charlie and Oscar like to sit with me and watch television. Isn’t this very cool and friendly.
Charlie is older, so he is much more contemplative than Oscar and both of us are concentrating on the television TV programme.
Charlie is now into doing magic, particularly card tricks, and here he is doing one for me.
He asks me to choose a card which he then shows me and before I know what has happened he has changed it. He is very, very clever for his age!
I was absolutely delighted that when Charlie came downstairs on his first night, he was wearing his energy saving T-shirt with my photograph on the front of it. Wasn’t that nice of him.
Anyway, I had a very nice time with the boys as usual, but my goodness it was busy. Oscar, in particular, aged 6, is rarely ever still so if he is running back and forward between the study, the kitchen and the drawing room, I feel obliged to follow him, to see what he is up to. so consequentially I don’t get as much rest as I would like. They left this afternoon, so I will be able to have a very long snooze.
