Is imitation the greatest form of flattery?

There’s been an awful lot of other monkey’s appearing. First there was the munching macaroon cup which was a house warming gift.

Then a Love Monkey mug which I found out was a birthday present.

As it was Karen’s birthday, I thought I should get her a gift and found this rather lovely purple orchid. I must have been eating my spinach as it was rather heavy for me to carry but I managed to get it safely back to the office and it was on Karen’s desk when she arrived in the morning. It also got home safely to Margate as well, even in the wind!

Saturday was a bit more sorting out of the flat but we did go out for a walk. It was very blowy so I sought some shelter in a flower pot.

We met a lovely lady called Jane Ducarreaux who is a local glass artist and produces some really beautiful and unique items (A Touch of Glass).

On the way home, I rather liked the look of the tidal pool but Karen didn’t think that would be a good idea so I swam with the fishes anyway (sort of).

I found a new favourite spot in the flat where I can look out the window – its perfect for me. We just need to get rid of that sold sign.

As it was such a lovely day on Sunday, we had a lovely walk along the front and Karen had a bit of a paddle on the way back. I did try to do some high diving but the tide wasn’t in quite far enough, so I made a seaweed cape instead.

Anyway, as you can see, the original Monkey is the best although the others are welcome to imitate. After all, isn’t imitation the greatest form of flattery?
