Happy New Year!

I know, it’s almost February now but this is the first time this year I’ve got to speak to you so it’s the first time this year we’ve connected. Hope you’re having a good one so far.

So, what’s new with me? I hear you ask… What, you didn’t ask? But you do want to know, don’t you? Of course you do!

Last year I was feeling pretty pleased with my progress, remember? Well, this year I am even more impressed with myself.

Here are some of my major achievements:

I have learned to swim by myself. I can even swim on my back (still need a little help with that one though. I’ll get there).

I can get dressed by myself. I still struggle with buttons. And I still don’t really like them.

No. Just no.


I can read by myself. Sort of. (OK, only audio books. But Mummy is especially happy about this as it gives her some time to herself – for what I don’t know).

I am learning to write my name. I have mastered the first two letters so far. Mummy says the rest is ‘recognisable’ but I think she sets her expectations low, bless her.

Some more firsts that I loved about this year:

I went on holiday for the first time.

I went to my first fireworks night.

I went to the cinema for the first time.

I went bowling for the first time – and I bowled without ‘the cage’! Because I am big. And awesome. I love bowling. That was my New Year’s Day treat.

So, Mummy thought 2014 was pretty good to her in the end. That’s nice. My 2014 was great! And I expect more greatness for 2015.

That’s it from me for now, I’m going to leave you with the wishes Mummy and I left on the wishing tree at The Rabbit Hole* earlier this month:

Joy. And a moving dinosaur. Because who wouldn’t want one of those?


*Mummy tells me that The Rabbit Hole is in danger of closing down. It’s one of my favourite cafes (I can run around and make noise!) so if you like the sound of that, please sign this petition to help keep it open in some form. Thank you!
