tricky business

we're not sure what these things are, but we're definitely making headway in teaching them tricks...


hippolyta is going to design costumes for them ("sort of in the style of zandra rhodes") and buttons hippo is giving them lessons in the history circus, theatre and music-hall with special reference to the work of p. t. barnum's lesser known second-cousin, sid.

we should easily be ready for the next season of bgt.

extended stay

hippolyta and buttons hippos got their big people to agree to their being able to stay on with me for another week's holiday.

so, early this morning, we waved them off...


then, as the car disappeared down the road, hippolyta gave a sigh of relief and said: 'right! now we can get on with some serious partying!' what a girl!

beach games

some young people play 'mummies and daddies' or 'doctors and nurses', but when you're with hippolyta, you can easily find yourself playing 'cinderella and prince charming'...

something fishy

of course we are in the land of myth and legend, but this rather surprised me...

 
i sang a couple of choruses of 'under the sea', but didn't get a response ––- guess she only speaks greek.

contentment

perhaps the best bit of a holiday is just sitting and gazing out to sea with no need for any words...
