JOHN's BIRTHDAY

 

Monty arrived at Balbeg and began to explore.  He'd never been there in June before.  Isabel & Bill brought me a little red handbag and a handbag key-ring from Spain.  Elsie arrived on John's birthday with his birthday card, a jigsaw for me and toffees for Isabel, Bill.

         

We went to Culzean Castle for lunch.  It was a beautiful day, Elsie had brought the sunshine with her.  First we went shopping (of course) then we had a lovely lunch in the courtyard.  We made a little video of our holiday and videos of me signing some of my words with Isabel & Bill.

         

When Peter and Mummy came back from Italy they took me for lunch with Uncle Aldo, Aunt Loretta, Aunt Lena & Uncle Ernest.  I got lots and lots of presents from Italy; a lovely jigsaw, a watch and lots more, and ... my new black car arrived.

         
We had a second birthday party for John at Dunlop.  Anna, Francesca, Lucy, Ruraidh and Pippa arrived with home-made cakes (made by Pippa) and presents for John.  Mummy sent John some beautiful roses and red wine.  Hip Hip Hurray!!
