He did. All the way from Melbourne. Just for the weekend. It was all very exciting.
So, of course, we had to have a party. Lots of people came. Big people and little people. And we were there, so there were hippos. Plus various other animal, creatures and beings.
There was lots of food. Lots and lots of food.
There was wine and fizzy drink and fruit juice.
And the sun shone and shone and shone.
And we played Hungry Hippos.
And we chased the children (well, Sleepy and Bernard did)
And everyone talked to the chickens.
It was a lovely day.
And now the uncle has gone. He's been to Winchester and the New Forest and London. And then he went to Prague. We hope he had fun - we like all those places. And now he is heading back to Melbourne.
And we are heading into cold, wintry weather. We are sorting out our wardrobe and getting nice new snuggly clothes. There will be pictures shortly :-)
In the meantime we are snuggled down in the sunn =y and warm lounge room of our country estate. But we ought to think about going back to our YOung Human's house soon. We're supposed to be escorting her to Spain in a couple of weeks. But her mother keeps enticing us to stay at the country estate with the blandishments of warm and comforting food. Steamed pudding and custard, anyone?
