Mum & Dad had a party .,., There was a choo-choo train with candles on the table and Dad made a BIG Birthday cake with TWO candles on it as well ,,, they were all lit up and everything .,., and guess what ?
He put it down in front of me at the table .,., It seems that it was MY BIRTHDAY ! Wow !!
Granny & Pumpa came and brought me a present .,., my very own BIG cooker with all kinds of pots & pans and knives & forks and stuff ,, I had great fun playing with it ,,,
Then auntie Amanda & uncle Derek came too with Gordy-Boo .,., They brought me a pressie too .,., It was great .,., a whole lot of bath toys, with their own net.
Mum & Dad gave me a great Elefun game, where the Elefun blows butterflies out it's trunk!!!
Marcel, Charlotte & Leon all bought pressies for me too .,., wasn't that really nice of them ?
A zebra, a panda and Tombliboo bubble bath. I love my big brothers & sister .,., and I'll tell you a secret .,.,., Mummy is bringing me another sister soon too !
I think this was the best day of my life so far ,,
We saw a mouse picture and it was very noisy !!
I think Granny said it was called Ratatouille or something.
It was all about a mouse that could cook .,.,
I slept thro' some of it I think , but Pumpa said I could see it again another day :)
We live across the road from some shops and a post office. Daddy is a member of Cinema Paradiso DVD club. Whenever he's watched a DVD he lets me carry it over to the shops. I feel very proud and important when he lets me carry the DVD to the shops. Then we see one of these red boxes and I don't want him to take the DVD and put it in the box because you can't get it out again. When he makes me put it in I cry so loud mummy can hear me all the way back at our house. No matter how loud I cry, he won't get it back out for me though. I just want to carry my letter back with me - is that so bad?
Straight after lunch I heard Mummy telling Daddy she was going to get me to go for a nap in my buggy, Daddy would leave me in Granny's garden and then Mummy, Daddy and Pudge would go to the cinema.
I didn't know what the cinema was, so I figured the only way to find out was to refuse to fall asleep. The plan worked. Mummy knew Granny was watching the tennis so wouldn't want me under her feet if I was awake so they took me with them.
Firstly there was this big foyer with nice soft carpets and shops. Because Mum had planned for me to fall asleep I had no shoes on so it was nice to run around barefoot.
Then we got taken into a big room with lots of people and the biggest telly I have ever seen. I asked Daddy loudly what it was. He said 'shhh!' so I asked again louder. I was so happy I started to sing. Daddy said 'shhhh' again. When he put me on my own seat I screamed because I wanted to sit on the floor in the aisle. That was much better. First there were some adverts. By the end of those I was bored so wanted to walk around on the nice carpet. As the film started I fell down a stair and Daddy wasn't pleased when I started to cry. We went outside but came in again 2 minutes later. The film was fun, if a bit long. There were many baby animals in it so I shouted 'Mummy - baby!' a few times. I was really enjoying it so I sang and sang. Mummy and Daddy said 'shhh!' a lot.
At the end I heard Mummy saying 'I don't think Anna is old enough for the cinema yet!' That's odd because I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
Yesterday when I was eating my lunch the strangest looking pip-pip I have ever seen landed on my sandwich. I pointed at it and told mummy and daddy to look quickly at it. Here is a photo of a pip-pip just like the one I saw.
Mum isn't quite as daft though. She told him to take off my clothes. Damn! When he took off my jeans it rolled out the side of my vest where I'd hidden it. Mum is a pain, I was having so much fun!

Daddy sits me down and tells me dogs say 'vov', chickens say 'gok', birds 'pip-pip' and frogs 'kvæk'. To impress him I repeat all of these unprompted, and even volunteer noises for sheep, snakes, donkeys and various other creatures. No sooner have I got all this right when mum tells me dogs 'woof', chickens 'cluck', birds 'tweet' and frogs 'ribbit'. I try to compromise on words like 'vof' and 'woov' but it isn't really working - it looks like I'm going to have to learn twice as many animal noises and any of my friends - hrumph!
Dad cut up a onion and started a fire under a pan and put on the onion, and he then gave me a piece of wood so that I could stir it.
It was good fun, although I burned myself twice.
I cried a bit and Dad put my hand under running cold water, and he then wanted to put me on the floor, but I cried again until he realised that I was not going to stop cooking just because of a wee burn.
When the onions were done, Dad took them away and I started to cry again, until he gave me the empty pan back.
Cooking is good fun, it's just a shame Dad won't let me be in charge!
I'm not sure mummy likes my game :-(
Today Auntie Amanda taught me to say 'cat' and 'kitten'. I tried 'Pumpa' too. Mummy is just thrilled now I call her 'Meemee' but yesterday mum kept showing me pictures of grey balls and every time I said 'ball' she said 'no, moon' - It must be a bit confusing for adults sometimes because I could clearly see it was a grey ball.
