Hasta luego Lollo

 I told Lollo I loved him.  I love lorries too.  I had a fine time playing with him.  He talked to me all the time on the bus.
A chatty companion
 And he showed me all kinds of interesting things.
A View from a Bridge
 And he let me wear his cap and geeed up el burro.
Well ridden

 And he'd pretend to get upset if I told him he is rubbish and tickle me until I yelled Mercy and he'd let me wake him every morning.

Looking for bed bugs

And he took me on a fun fair where I jumped for joy and for Lollo.
Showing Lollo my bestest biggest jump

And he found me 28 Sycamore seeds to feed the goat.

Hungry Mouflon

Then when I woke up this morning I couldn't find Lollo.  I looked in his room and he wasn't there.  I asked Mama where he was and she said on a plane back to England.  I told Mama that I wanted to go with him.  She said too late.  You should have said so earlier.

Life without Lollo

Magical Malaga

Here he is
 I was so sad to see Grandma and Granddad Geoffers go.  But then Lollo arrived with a whole suitcase full of presents for me.  He put his shorts on and I saw that he had whiskers on his knees.  We went to Malaga for the day and I ate a big plate of fried baby squid called chopitos.
Getting my chops round chopitos
 They had lots of lovely statues there and a castle.  Mama said they were called Henry Moore.  I didn't think they looked like him at all.
What is that Uncle Lollo?
 Mama didn't make us climb up to the castle again after Granddad Geoffers complained last time.  Thank goodness for that.
The Castle
 We got to go round the port instead. And that was brilliant because they had this big bouncy thing which I got to bounce on.
The Port
 I climbed up this really high ladder and Mama got scared and tried to come after me but the man told her off. Ha ha.  Mama is always being told off by someone.
Bouncy Submarine
 When we came down I got to sit in a tyre.
A Spare tyre which isn't Mamas
 And to play in a fountain.
Malaga town hall
 And jump off a Roman theatre.
Practising Jumping
 But best of all I got to eat my own ice-cream.

Marvellous Mijas

El Burro
We got on a bus from Furngirola to Mijas.  I like buses and so does Granddad.  It didn't take long and we got to Mijas.  There were lots of donkeys there.  They all looked very sad.  Except this one.  We had to push a load of Spanish Grannies out of the way to get on.  They were all fighting to ride it and shouting Arre Arre El Burro.

Looking at the view
 It was quite chilly windy so Mama didn't get much of a view of the coast.  It was a very nice town,  With lots of steps which I can jump off.  I specialise in jumping now.  It is my thing.  Mama says I am half man half frog.  Like Mowgli.  Daddy says Mama wanted to name me Mowgli.  Thank goodness Daddy had some sense.
Jumping Steps
 We went for a 7 Euro Menu del Dia which Mama managed to get up to 15 Euros each by the time she had finished ordering coffees with brandies.  She does get carried away.  I had lots of nice fish and a big plate of chips
The nearly last supper
 Mama kept going onb about the colours.  There were lots of pots of gereniums in reds and blues.
The colours
 And lots of tiled fountains and a playground.
The square
 And a really big tower.
The Tower
And a fountain which I could press with my foot and make water come out and which I couldn't leave alone.
My favourite bit
I had a really lovely day.  We got to ride back down on the bus and Granddad did the biggest sneeze I have ever heard which made Mama laugh so much that the whole bus laughed all the way down the hill.

Fun in Fuengirola

En Famille
 They are here!  And we went to the zoo.
What's that on my bumbum?
Mama says I'm taking advantage but my Grandma plays with me all the time and I like her games.  We dig together for gold on the carpet and I get her to burp on command.

Cheeky Monkey
 Fuengirola BioPark was great.  Mama said it looked like Bali.  I saw lots of animals.  Mama said she could have climbed in with them. 
This elephant didn't move

 I saw lots of monkeys and snakes and dragons and an EEEEnormous tortoise.

Big one
 Mama kept annoying the meercats.  She squeaks at them and makes them all stand up on their back legs.  Poor things.
Hiding from Mama
 There were also lots of pink flamingoes who smelled bad. 
 I like taking pictures.  Mama says when I grow up I can be a photographer like Uncle Lollo.  He is coming next week and I can't wait.
I took this photograph
