Bob’s Diary: Halloween Night is coming …. I thought I was prepared

Hi,

I was having a snooze when I began to feel really warm.

Then I woke to find I had been sabotaged. Though the promise of some biscuits did keep me happy for a while.

See what you think, and please let me know if I am an idiot.

I made my escape

i am off

 

 

and was rewarded when I spotted these two flying high towards mudpile wood.

I wonder if I could get into Mr. Breeze’s party?

 

 

 

 

Bob’s Diary: Wet

It has been a wet week but this is Ireland and summer is coming so what else can we expect?

I have been busy, found some new routes through a well-known wood.

ipp

I thought you might like to see them.ipp

I was getting a little wet and tiredipp

so lucky for me we found a place to shelter. (I was supposed to be taking care of her tennis ball, Ellie was off chasing a rainbow? )

The debate now is what color curtains will we put up?

Bobs Diary: Searching

We set off in hot pursuit, Breeze the Ogre was spotted in the Wood.

We found

his seat.

I have to admit it is a pretty neat seat.

Then we found what could be the secret entrance to his section of the wood.

But Dinner called, so we returned home.

Don’t worry I’ll be back.

Bob’s Diary: Easter, bunnies and choices…

Hello,

hello easter

I knew she was plotting something, Easter is here, please take a look at the choices given and I hope you agree mine is best.

I was offered this to wear:

wear a silly hat

It’s a snazzy Easter Hat, she said.

 

I don't think so

I said, “No, thank you, I’d rather not.”

The alternative was: “take Ellie for a drive”. Well I didn’t even listen to that, take a look at her sitting waiting for me to do the work.

Better take ellie for a drive

I decided to focus on creating an Easter Bunny to get into Mudpile Wood, especially when I heard about their trouble ( please click on trouble to read their version of events.)

 

Bob’s Diary: Who needs a time travelling machine, check this out.

Ellie’s comment on the Ferrari got me thinking.

She is correct (don’t tell her I said that) we need proper transport.

So….Opinions please…. what do you think of this? My hunt an Ogre car….

Only problem is, I’m not letting her in, she is always mucky. (Maybe she will fit in the boot).

Bob’s Diary: To cheer Maria up…

talking 1Yesterday was Mother’s day and though her two kids did an amazing job, cooking dinner and surprising her with some spectacular bird earrings. I know Maria still missed her own mum… so….

We decided to cheer her up by beginning our expedition plans to find that Ogre.

I’ve been watching Dora, and learnt a lot,

Looking for Dora the Explorer.

Looking for Dora the Explorer.

So I now know preparation is the key for finding a species, in this case an Ogre. We started by gathering together the following items:

stuff in barrow

1.  Food

 2. Fairy Cakes

3. In case of emergency phone

4. Binoculars

5. Food

6.  First aid kit and book.

7.  A silver star

8. –  We are still waiting on this one,  it is a map of the wood where he lives …until then we will  practice our drills…

talking 2

Ellie:  Hang on a moment, Bob. Why have we got a star?

Bob: all travellers know that if you are lost you can find your way by looking at stars, so we are bringing our own, just in case

ball on stick 1

Ellie: And a ball on a stick?

Bob: Its the old donkey thing, you know donkey being led by a carrot on a stick,

Ellie: No I don’t understand.

Bob: You are a collie/husky, you like balls, see I’ll show you..

donkey

Ellie: Nope sorry I don’t get it..

Bob: Don’t worry you’ll get the hang of it. We just have to pick the correct mode of transport to be pulled.

2nd veh

 Ellie: now that looks plain stupid.

Bob: which one?

3rd veh

vehicle 1

 

Ellie:  Hmm.. I don’t think you’ll get any donkey to pull any of those.

ellies final word

 

But I wouldn’t mind a drive in a Ferrari.

Bob’s Diary: Hunting him down

After our meeting I went back to the wood.pic one in wood

Ellie says it is not the right wood, but what does she know she rescues people she doesn’t hunt ogres.

I know that he is big and there has to be a clue around  there somewhere.

There is it is: at http://mudpilewood.wordpress.com/

Bob’s Diary: Rumor has it….

Bob: I’ve called a meeting because I’ve heard a rumour…

1st pic meeting

Ellie:  Seriously? What’s a meeting? What’s a rumor?

pay attentionBob: Just listen. We have a problem. The fact is I’m told the Ogre has a blog.

 Ellie: Good for him. He will be busy.

Bob: Exactly so we can find him and get a refill of fairy cakes.

meeting called

“Good luck with that one.”

Bob’s Diary: Valentines Day and my dream has come true!

Rain stopped for a while so I resumed the hunt for the stupid Ogre and his crock of fairy cakes.

the hunt continues

I kept thinking today is the day..

AND

Ta….raa…..

stumble on basket

My wee collie friend with the nose struck gold

I needed a rest

exhausted but happy

But before we left with our trophies to enjoy at home, I couldn’t resist it ….just a taste

It’s a great Valentines Day – giant cupcakes with icing on top!

Except for the fact I had to give her one

She threatened to eat Maria’s hat…and I’m not that mean.
