HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PIGEON!




My little pigeon is a year old. I can hardly believe it, they grow up so fast! I am of course talking about Mr.Pigeon 001, the original pigeon, who is on the left in the party hat. He is very different from the rounder, softer, plain-winged pigeons I make now (see 007 on the right).



I must apologise for an unplanned month of absence. "Where on earth have you and that bird been" you say?


Well, we've been sunning ourselves in Valencia...


...in bed ill for a week (probably as a result of something eaten in Valencia)...


...in London doing work experience (Mr.P didn't think much of the local laws)...


...and it's taken two days to catch up on e-mails and blog-reading.


You'll be pleased to know (well, you might not be) that I've decided to start doing more frequent but much shorter posts. As there's no longer the excuse of being abroad and away from the sewing machine, there will be much more crafty action and fewer pictures of cake...unless you want pictures of cake, that is...

Happy birthday Mr P - looking forward to the next year of adventures!

This morning one of Mr P's more portly cousins was staging some sort of sit in on the upturned paddling pool. Miss P1 was not pleased.

Never stop the cake. Never.

Hi Charlie - it's great to have you back! I was wondering what you and Mr Pigeon had been getting up to. Sorry to hear you've been ill - but what was the work experience like? What were you doing? Did Mr P come in with you each day? And why do you think we wouldn't want posts about cake? Silly girl! Of course we do!

What, no birthday cake picture??! Happy Birthday to the oh-so-youthful looking Mr P, and I'm with the others on this .... stop with the cakey pics and I'll have to send the boys round ....

I hope you had fun in Valencia - apart from the whole food poisoning thing, natch, but are you sure you're really staying this time? You little jet-setter you!

:)
