Catch of the day


My mum told me about this crazy guy that had a fishing show in Australia. He would go fishing and each fish he would catch he wouldn’t take them home and cook up on the barbie, instead he would pucker up and give them a little kiss and send them on their way. What lucky fish, some of those big fish wouldn’t have stood a chance if Poppy caught them. What a crazy fella this Rex Hunt fella is… but not crazy enough that I wasn’t going to give it a try myself with the little ones.  Now all I had to do was catch a fish……. I waited. …. I got up and sat down…  waited again… got up … sat down… got up danced around and blimey!!! I nearly lost my rod over the marina. I had caught a fish!!! Luckily poppy helped me reel him in cos he was a fighter. But he was just a tiny little thing so Omi grabbed the little fella off the rod and without a thought I gave him that rex hunt type of kiss and sent him on his way. Mummy got a photo of me and the fish but she missed the kiss. 

Today we had another go but I wasn’t that interested, it was mummy’s turn to get the catch of the day. I love spending time on the boat. I am very careful climbing up and down the ladder and walking around the marina. Today I saw a boat with a pirate flag on it and yelled out ‘shiver me timbers!!’ That made mummy laugh as she had never taught me that.

If the weather is nice tomorrow we are going to feed some Kangaroos at the zoo.

Have you ever kissed a fish?

Sorry you have to wait for mummy to get photo’s off Omi to see my catch of the day. Xx







About Harlow London Stanley

With a lot of help from my mummy, I am writing this blog to help my friends and family stay in touch with me when we move to London in a few weeks. I am going to miss everyone and I am not very good at writing emails and I can't talk yet, so skype can be difficult. So we thought this would be the most fun way for everyone to see what I am up to. At the moment I am almost 6 months old so there are few big milestones ahead of me, teeth, crawling, walking and talking are just a few that I hope to master this year. All of my family will be home in Australia and will miss these amazing moments, so I promise to post them with pictures, videos and little diary entries as soon as they happen.
