Pumpkin Patch



Happy little Pumpkin



Happy (Belated) Halloween everyone!

It’s been a while since I have updated my blog, I blame mummy.  She is always doing other things and since th internet is still not working she uses that as an excuse as well.  The internet in our flat will be fixed in two weeks so we promise that we will blog more often.  Mummy has been saving up lots of pictures to post and will do another video montage very soon. 

Yesterday was Halloween so mummy dressed me up for the day as a Pumpkin.  After she did her thing in Starbucks and after I had my morning snooze we went to the park so she could get lots of photo’s of me playing in the Autumn leaves – as a Pumpkin!  Lots of people stopped and commented on how cute I was and tried to help mummy make me smile for the photo’s.  We found a really good spot to play in the leaves, the problem in Chiswick is that they rake up the leaves in the park closest to our flat. So mummy has been looking for a good spot to get some Autumn pics for a while now. We found a great spot in the park across from Starbucks.  We didn’t go trick or treating but mummy promised to take me next year.



I am really getting up and about the flat these days.  I can properly pull myself up to a stand and today I started to walk around a little bit using the sofa as a guide.  I got up on my two feet and mummy was sitting at the other end of the sofa so I tried to get closer and took a few steps before she helped me.  She was a little worried I would fall and hurt my bottom.  She was very happy and proud of me.  I don’t really sit still anymore, which is great for me as I love to explore but mummy doesn’t get a minute to herself, even when she jumps in the shower, I go searching for her.  Today I did something very silly I crawled under the coffee table and was going really well until I got a bit stuck halfway.  Mummy watched me do it and thought it was funny until I started to get a little scared. 

Last night mummy was telling me that it was Melbourne Cup day back in Australia.  Melbourne Cup is the biggest horse race in Australia and it happens every year on the first Tuesday of November.  It sounds like a lot of fun and supposedly mummy usually has some good luck, picking the winner.  She had a quick look at the horse lineup and chose a random horse called Dunaden and she tried to put a bet on using daddy’s phone but it didn’t work.  Bugger! She found out this morning she would have won! We should have called Omi and got her to put a bet on for us then she could put the winnings in my bank account.

  5. You look very cute Harlow. We dressed up for Halloween too. I dressed as a witch and Ava just dressed up in her bright coloured dress that she wore on the walk for a cure on Sunday. It was our daddys birthday so mummy put spiderwebs & spiders around the place so it was ready for the Trick or treaters we didn’t get too many kids this year but it was fun to see them dress up. We look forward to your next blog…love from Brianna & Ava

    • Thanks for your comment Brianna and Ava. You will have to email my mummy a picture of you all dressed up. Mummy asked if it was too late to put money on your walk for a cure donation page? She didn’t realise it was last weekend already. We have a pretty exciting weekend ahead. On friday night we are watching the fireworks in Wimbledon for Bonfire night and meeting up with Mummy’s best friend Kristy for brunch on Saturday. I will update my blog with lots of firework pics. Lots of love Harlow. xxx

Hi Harlow yes I do remember November 5th Guy fox night we used to make guys out of our dads Clothes and stuff them with straw And put him in cart, and go round the streets and people used to put money in tin, and then we would by fire works, and the guy would go on top Bon fire good old times, when I was a little girl. Also when I was older that was where I first met G Dad at bonfire party Los of love G Nan G Dad xxx
