Monkeys in the trees!

Monkeys playing in the trees!

 And afterwards, warming up in the cafe. (Not quite sure why Tabby looks so grumpy?)

Happy 3rd Birthday Tabby-Kat!

So, yesterday was Tabby's 3rd birthday and we had a birthday party for her. Just a small party at the house, with some songs and games. Here's Emily singing a song about rain and getting everyone to use their shakers and tambourines to provide the sound effects!
And the tiger cake which Tabby requested.
I stayed up WAY too late making it, and you can probably see the effects of the coffee in how shaky my hands were when I was icing it! Ken was very kind and said it was "impressionistic", but Tabby was happy with it, which is the main thing!
And it must have tasted okay!
So, a late night, followed by a late morning sleeping in!
While I was out getting party stuff, part of the wooden panels at the side of the car park fell on to my car. The car park attendants came and helped me move it and took some pictures to back up my claim if I wished to claim on the insurance. But sadly, all of the dings and dents were there on my car prior to the panel falling on it! :-(
In other news, Phoebe saved up enough lizard cards (100!) at Explore Learning to get the book of 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl. Grandma has promised that if she reads it all from cover to cover, Grandma will take her to London to see the stage show! Lucky girl!
