Calpe and Benidorm

 The silver tops are here.  Mama said that Nanny was worried I wouldn't want to see her.  What rubbish!  When she came out of the airport, I charged her and grabbed her knees.  She dropped her case.  So I carried it for her.
Big Mountain
 We went to Calpe because Mama wanted to eat fish.  She ate fish whilst I slept.  They kept me some bits of squid for when I woke up.  I like squid.
 And then we slept in the sand. 
A lady on the campsite knitted me a jumper.  Her husband and his friend have one too.  They all came to have their photo taken with me.
Me and my jumper
Mama took us all to Benidorm.  Nana didn't want to go.  When we got there, we couldn't get her away.  Mama says this happens quite often.  She tried to persuade Nana to visit Iceland but Nanny wouldn't go.
On the beach again
 I played on the beach with Daddy. It was a beautiful day.  Nanny and Ganggang found a really nice restaurant.  So nice, I did a wee on the floor but they didn't mind.  They gave me a small bucket of sweets.
Las Vegas
 They gave the Nofuns a bottle of strange yellow liquid which made them go all silly.  So silly infact that Mama started dancing the cha cha down the street with me on her head.  Nanny bought a a pair of gold and white golf shoes.  Mama says she doesn't even play golf.  Then Nanny bought me a police bike with a really loud siren which she took off me later. 
Before lunch
 We all had a game of football in the street and loads of people joined in.  I met a lady with a pet pigeon.
After lunch
 It was very dark when we got home.  Mama couldn't tear Nanny and Ganggang away from the nightlife.  They wanted to join in.

The Three Kings

 Small Car Big Dog told Mama that there was a big parade in Altea on the 5th of January.  So we went.  They said it was called the three kings.  We waited and waited and waited.  All of a sudden there was a huge blow up elephant.  Daddy said it was the biggest inflatable he had ever seen.  Mama said she wasn't so sure.
A big inflatable
 And then there was a renesorius.  A really big one.  And a tiger.  And a marching band with some great drumming which made me dance.  In the street.
A Renesorius
 There were balloons and girls with balloons and boys with balloons and more balloons.  And men playing pipes and men dressed in tights. 
 And then there was a man walking on a ball in a tall hat.  Mama said she bet she could do that and daddy said 'Rubbish'.
A man on a ball
 Just as I was wondering what this had to do with the three kings.  Along they came.  With lots of girls throwing sweets at me.  I collected a big bag full but try as I might, I can't find them anywhere. 
One King
 But best of all.  After the tigers and elephants and the man on a ball and the girls throwing sweets was an ambulance.  With the lights flashing.  I couldn't believe my luck.
The best bit
 Mama bought a three kings cake and it had a bean in it and a porcelain king.  I nearly choked on it.

Happy New Ear

Farewell my Uncle Bamby
Mama says it's 2015.  I thought it was Tuesday.  My uncle left.  In a big aeroplane.  I keep staring at the sky now to see if I can see him.  I miss him.  Nana is coming.  She is bringing Ganggang and a digger I hope.  Mama says there won't be room in their bags.  They are staying in a flat next to the campsite.  It has a bath.  Mama says I can have a bath this year.
Thought it was meant to be warm
New Year was chilly.  We were invited to a party the night before at the campsite.  I was very excited.  There was a guitarist.  Most people spoke Dutch and there were two people with flashing rabbit's ears on there heads.  I danced with them.  We ate cheese and liver sausage and crisps.  I had apple juice.
Daddy and me on a very very very big truck
The guitarist was Spanish.  Mama said it was Antonio Banderas after a very big Christmas dinner.  He started by playing some Spanish music.  I danced.  He then started to play the guitar behind his head.  I loved it.  When he began Delilah, Mama made me leave.  She is such a NoFun.
The Dutch enjoying themselves
New Years Day, the campers all jumped in the sea.  They kept asking me to go in too but I was frozen.
They had Santa's hats on.  It was all a bit stormy.  Mama said she bet there would be a visit from an ambulance.  I waited and waited fora flashing blue light but none turned up.
First Dinner of the New Year
We went to and Indian restaurant for lunch and sat in the sun and ate curry.  I chased a cat around until it scratched me.  Mama said it would teach me a lesson and Daddy said I would get rabies.  It didn't do either.
Mama is making curry for dinner. 
Happy New Year
