Off again...

I really am sorry! Mr. Pigeon and I are in Spain (again!) this week, will be entertaining Belgians the week after and will be in London the week after that but I promise to squeeze in as many posts as possible.




I have lots of lovely pictures and pigeon news to post about but until then here is a picture of Mr.Pigeon...or is it a magpie?







Mr. Pigeon is modelling his present from Clare. I delivered Mr. Pigeon 034 (now Charles Abraham Pigeon) to her in person and Mr.P was absolutely delighted to receive this fantastic Newcastle United Football Club pigeon tank top which she had knitted for him!










Unfortunately Mr. Pigeon seemed to think that this new outfit should be accessorised with loutish behaviour and he soon ended up claws-up on the lawn, coo-ing dirty songs and displaying his beer belly (along with the impressively neat back of Clare's knitting)...








Thank you so much Clare! It was lovely to see you on Tuesday and a shame it couldn't have been for longer :)


I'll be back next week with...wait for it...some actual CRAFTING!

Oh deary me - Mr P has turned into a football hooligan! I hope the terrible hangover doesn't last too long!

Chuckle-rich post as ever Charlie. Absolutely magic to have you back!

Cooing dirty songs? I've just remembered I know a REAL dirty song called 'Charlie had a pigeon'!!!!!! Is this a coincidence??? I think it is a scouse song.

Hmm, I wonder what Mr P would do if you accused HIM of being a southerner???? Good lord, he'd knock you one!!!

Hotpots at dawn...

You can always make us laugh!! I hope that Mr P didn't have too bad a hangover after all that beer! Your travelling sounds like fun! I am not off anywhere till September but then I'm hitting Spain and Switzerland! Can't wait!!

I hope Mr P manages the flight ok with his hangover and that he doesn't over-indulge in Spain - you know what a bad reputation football yobs have!

Have a great time!

Oh dear, that Mr.P really doesn't need any encouragement does he? I hope his hangover is a bad one and he never feels like another pint again, serves him right. Give a bacon stottie that ought to do the trick.
Enjoy your holidays
X Clare

I'm not surprised he's flat on his back looking at the size of the can. Enjoy Spain.

Well, Mr P didn't get enough in Germany....
Mr P always wears a new top, his wardrobe must be bigger than yours by now?!
Have fun in Spain and Belgium.

Hope you and Mr P are enjoying your trip through Spain and Belgium. I'm sure we'll see many more pictures of Mr P drinking his way around the country side. Tsk tsk!! What's the recommended dose of pain relief for a pigeon? ;)

Rachelmp said...

Mr P is such a show off Charlie! I hope you have a great trip. I'm very jealous....

Country Cottage Chic said...

You do make me laugh!

Mr P's behaviour is shocking - you'll have to get him a bowler hat & brolly & maybe he'll change his ways?

Have you had any more thoughts about joining us for the fair? We'd love to have you there...everyone would flock (haha) to your table!

Katy said...

Bloomin' Geordie Pigeons, I got pooed on by one once, y'know. Twas quite terrible. Still, as long as Mr P keeps his rowdy behaviour to the terraces I shall forgive him.
have fun in Spain, Jet setter!

Please pop over to my blog to collect an award (it's like the Olympics!)
But don't let Mr P near the champagne......
