Fabulous French fungi!

Tiddy here!

The first thing I want to say is DO NOT TOUCH FUNGI!!! They could be poisonous. I got close, but didn't touch any of them, cos I am a sensible little bear.

Because it is Autumn, there are lots of fungi growing in the fields in France. Look at these. They are very pretty and quite tall.  Don't forget DO NOT TOUCH!

There are lots of different types. Flat ones and fat ones! Dark ones and light ones!

This was my favourite one. It  looked like it should be on a picture in a fairy story book. It is the same colour as me. See! The frilly edges even match my nose and mouth! 

There are lots of fungi here, but if you only have one, you have to call it a fungus. I prefer fungi. It sounds funny!

Is it or isn't it?

Charlie here!

When we were in France, it was a lovely day, so we went for a walk.

As we got to the crossing, there was a girl about to cross the road on one side.

Oh look! There is a boy on the other side of the road waiting to cross too. Or is there?

Hee hee! Look! They are plastic models of children! That makes people driving cars slow down, because they think someone is trying to cross the road. It is good that the traffic slows down, as it can be so dangerous! Can you see me having a ride?

Tiddy had a ride on the boy's backpack too! They had us fooled. Did you think they were real? School looks like soooooo much fun!

My favourite!

Charlie here!

Can you see this ENORMOUS motorhome? It was huge, but also had bits that slide out to make even more space!

As well as the sofas and chairs, there was a huge place for us to have our food. It was very comfy.

Tiddy loved the kitchen area. There was a cooker, microwave and fridge freezer. He wants to be a celebrity chef, so he wants a big kitchen to practice. I think he is a very good cook :o)

This is us in the cosy bedroom. It was huge, so plenty of space for Tiddy to do his weight lifting.

The bed was very comfy. I liked it a lot, but Tiddy said he thought it needed a softer mattress. It's bounceablity factor was 7 out of 10. I'm glad really, as he was bouncing so high I thought his head was going to crash into the ceiling! If it had been any bouncier, he would have broken something.

Now all I have to do is save up all my pennies and we will be able to buy this. I wonder how long it will take?

I want one of these!

Tiddy here!

Look at this cooooool motorhome! You can see part of the kitchen in this photo. Can you see me?

Here I am on the sofa that turns into a bed. It really does! It was super duper comfy, but only had a bounceability factor of 6 out of 10. It was harder than a normal bed as it had to be a sofa during the day. Can you see the drawers that are perfect for a secret chocolate supply?

The bear bath in this one was much better, as the swirly whirly tap could move out of the way when I needed to read my comic. Much better than the last one. If you look in the mirror, you can see the people shower. That was nice, but I prefer relaxing in a hot bath.

I think this one was my favourite, although I'd need to bring a trampoline along so I could bounce on that if I needed to.

Malvern Motorhome Fun!

Charlie here :o)

 Yesterday, Tiddy and me went to Malvern to look at caravanettes, motor homes and RVs. It was very busy!

This one was small and cute. There was plenty of room for us, but I don't think there would have been room for Mrs C and Mr P too!

There was plenty of room in the bed for both of us but nowhere for anyone else. Tiddy tried out the bed and gave it 8 out of 10 for bounceabillity. I thought it was very comfortable, but it wouldn't be if Tiddy kept bouncing on it!!!

Tiddy tried out the bear bath. He said it was a bit cramped and the tap would get in the way of his comic when he read in the bath. There was plenty of space on the shelves for our toothbrushes and soap though.

There were loads more to look at. Tiddy will be back soon with pics of a bigger one.

FantTiddytastic French food!

Tiddy here! 

  When we are in French France, Charlie and me like to eat French bread. It is long and thin. They call it a baguette.

Charlie always pinches the end off the baguette on the way home from the boulangerie. That's what they call the bakery. 

I like to fill up the baguettes with salty butter and Paris ham. Mmmmm, scrummy! Even though the French people have lovely foods like boeuf bourguignon, that is like a posh beef stew, I like these better. 

The best place to eat ham baguettes is out on the caravan decking in the sunshine. They were lovely and we had a nice glass of orange juice too. I love French food!

Our home for a whole week!

Tiddy here! 
When we arrived in French France, we discovered our fanTiddytastic caravan! Can you see me and Charlie in the window?

Look! You can see our car and the other caravan out of the window. Some people call these caravans 'trailers'. I call them 'fun'!

This is our bedroom. It was so cool, cos we could look out of the window and see the ducks walking past. Charlie let me have the bed by the window. She's such a sweetie!

Back soon to tell you what we had for lunch.

France, here we come!

Charlie here!

A few weeks ago, Mr P told us we were off to France! It was so exciting. We even stayed at a Premier Inn at Dover the night before.

Tiddy made us a quick cuppa before going to explore our room. The bathroom had a perfectly sized teddy bath. Very stylish!

We had a long day ahead of us the next day, so I had an early night. I loved the comfy bed. Tiddy stayed up late reading the restaurant menu. He does love to eat!

Colourful Kinsale!

Charlie here!

When Tiddy and me were in Ireland, one of our favourite places was Kinsale! Can you see the water behind us. It was a very beautiful place. The best thing of all was.......

...all the pretty coloured buildings! There were all the colours of the rainbow!

It looked like a very happy place and made me smile a lot!

Look at the cute windows in the roof of this one. Tiddy said he would like to have a bedroom in that roof.

This colour reminded me of the beautiful sky. It was just like a summer's day, even though it felt cold.

Even the post office was painted yellow and green! I would like to have a post office that colour in our town.

So, if you fancy some bright colours to cheer you up, pop over to Kinsale and enjoy the show!

Tiddy here!

Yesterday, me and Charlie went down the garden to watch out for the eclipse. Mr P explained that the moon was going to get in the way of the sun for a little bit, so it would be like night in the day! It didn't look dark when we went out.

After a few minutes, it started to get dark, but not really dark, so you can watch the video to see if you can still see me in the apple tree!

It wasn't long before it got light again. I liked the eclipse and hope we have another one soon!

Today is called Mother's Day. As I don't have a mother or any children, I am calling it Happy Day!

Welsh Rabbit for St David's Day!

Charlie here!

To celebrate St David's Day, Tiddy and I made some Welsh Rabbit. There are no rabbits in it...or chocolate. I can see you, Tiddy!

Here are the ingredients. Don't forget to use a nice Welsh Caerphilly cheese!

First, Tiddy toasted the bread. We had one slice each. That is just enough for  a small bear. Adults may like 2 slices, as it is so delicious.

I grated the cheese and put it in a saucepan with milk, salt, pepper and some mustard. I mixed it as the cheese melted. It didn't take long. 

We popped some chopped ham on the toast, poured the mixture on and then added a bit more ham. Can you guess which one Tiddy made?

After a few minutes under the grill, our Welsh Rabbit was ready to eat. It tasted scrummy, even without Tiddy's chocolate!

Happy St David's Day everyone!!!!!

Rock a bye baby!

Tiddy here!
Have you ever wondered where we sleep when we are on a boat? Well, here's our cabin. There are lots of cabins on the boat.

As soon as we got in, I booked the top bunk! Charlie didn't mind, as she was too busy playing computer games to think about sleeping.

I snuggled up while Charlie watched us sail away from the land.

Charlie had a drink of hot chocolate in a cute smiley cup before she went to bed.

I crept down the ladder and took this picture after she was asleep. Charlie doesn't snore like me. She squeaks!

In the morning, I had a quick shower and then we were on our way again.

I love sleeping on a big bobbing boat!
