Keep Calm Tilly…

I have a nasty sneaky feeling that Tilly has been watching too much television lately. I know for a fact that she sat up all night with Richard watching the referendum results come in. Then she was glued to the BBC as Cameron resigned. So, there is going to be another referendum. Oh no, there isn’t. Anyway, Boris is going to take over. No, wait a minute, it is going to be Gove. Hang on…he’s gone! So it is now between May and Leadsom. Wait a second…Leadsom has pulled out. Who’s left? Oh yes, Theresa May. Quick…make her Prime Minister! But what about Corbyn? Perhaps he should take over? No, surely Eagle would be better. Hang on, who’s Owen Smith, maybe he will do? Oh look, Boris is now Foreign Secretary…whatever next!

I really think we need to keep Tilly away from the television!

Tilly and Mabel and the Big Fish

Quick Quick Quick Quick… I can see the Sea!

Tilly and Mabel

Lets go this way…no no..lets go that way!

No…this way…no that way!

Tilly and Mabel

Look Mabel look Mabel…

Tilly and Mabel

Tilly and Mabel

Guess what…

WE SAW A FISH!

Big Sisters are such a Pain!

Tilly and Mabel have a big sister called Lolli who lives nearby. Big sisters are such a pain! They think it is beneath them to play with their smaller siblings, and so they grab the best toy and run away with it.Tilly and Mabel

When challenged they just run faster.

Tilly and Mabel

Even when challenged from both sides big sisters still think they have a right to the best toy.

Luckily we are bringing Tilly and Mabel up to chase their goals and never give up. That is one big sister who has met her match!

Tilly and Mabel and the Lost Boot

Firstly, my apologies to the person who has lost a brown suede boot at Poles Coppice nature reserve on the outskirts of Minsterley. Unfortunately Tilly and Mabel have found it…

Tilly and Mabel

Mabel has declared it is her boot, and if Tilly wants a boot she can go and find her own boot!

Tilly and Mabel

She has taken quite a shine to the boot…more so actually than the pile of toys we have spent a fortune on at home!

Tilly and Mabel

I am reliably informed that it is a size 5 boot with no name tag visible…

Tilly and Mabel

Although Mabel was desperate to bring the boot home, and I’m sure the boot has given you many hours of pleasure, I didn’t want the dirty smelly thing in my car…

So the boot is still at Poles Coppice…and Mabel is bootless and bereft.

Tilly and Mabel and the Sad Tale of the Plant Pot

Like most things it started as a bit of fun. I don’t know who actually found the plant pot full of seedlings in the garden but I would guess that Tilly dragged it into the conservatory. Once inside I should image that the pot became the newest ‘must have toy for young sprockers’. Or perhaps they were trying to be helpful and had decided that the seedlings needed repotting…or as the case may be ‘un-potting!’

Tilly and Mabel were about 10 weeks old at the time. And this is where it all started. When there is trouble in the air Tilly hides behind Mabel, and Mabel gives me the big “sorry, we didn’t mean it” eyes. And, as has been the case many times since, the pair of little scoundrels get away with murder!
