Nottingham

This was a rather exciting weekend and lots of firsts for me, including going on a big train and in a car.

We went to stay with Karen’s big sister, Steph, and brother-in-law, James, in Nottingham. We went to get the train from St Pancras station which was super busy so Karen made sure I was safely tucked away for the train journey and didn’t fall out.

On the Saturday, we went by car to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It was my first time in a car and I was super excited. I wasn’t allowed to stay on the dashboard for the journey as would’ve been too distracting.

We arrived in time for lunch (of course) and they tried to feed me chilli’s but I wasn’t convinced. The rest of the lunch looked rather tasty though but they ate it all and didn’t share any.

Steph and James were rather naughty when Karen wasn’t at the table and put me upside down in a bottle. Steph tried to say that monkey’s are good at climbing but I’m too little for that.

We then went outside in the sunshine and saw some lovely sculptures, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. I even saw sheep for the first time too but stayed safely behind a fence as they were rather big, even the lambs.

It was a rather lovely day but we were tired and had to go home (aside from the park closing). I wanted to drive home but Steph said the key might be a bit big for me.

I did have a treat later, though, as I met Ted and Snowy, as well as Milo and Travel Ted. Ted is older than Karen and he’s been much loved over the years.

Sunday we made biscuits. Well, I say we, really Steph and James made the biscuits then Karen helped with icing them. Can you guess what they are?

Not surprisingly, we slept on the train home!
