Hedgie's prompts

I am being very good and getting ahead of myself. Here are all of Hedgie's prompts:

Favourite TV Programme
My fave TV programme is FiFi and the Flowertots. Zoe loves watching it too. I love it because it is so bright and colourful and happy.
Favourite Cartoon Character
This is an easy one - I love Mickey and Minnie Mouse. I would love to go to Disneyland and I know so would Zoe, but Claire says it is very expensive! What a misery she is!!!
Favourite sport to watch
Rugby - I love watching those big muscly men running around in their tight shorts and Johnny Wilkinson is to die for.
Favourite sport to play
I love to rollerskate - it is such fun and good exercise too. It is how I stay so trim.
Carer's sport
Claire is into some weight loss thing and seems to exercising all the time - hence why I am being so neglected! Here are her new running trainers.
I could quite go off Hedgie. We found a boat and Claire thought I could sail round the bird bath but the minute she put me on the water I started to sink - do you know how cold that water is. If I get a cold, then I will blame Hedgie!!!
Easter Egg
I love chocolate and I was given this egg by Zoe after she did her Easter Egg hunt - isn't she kind?

Musicals catchup

We are 2 weeks behind on the prompts so we have had some photo shoots this morning and here goes for a mammoth catch up.

Mamma Mia
I don't have any family of my own but I found this beautiful lady who I would like to be my mum. Her hair is so long, silky and glossy and her skin is perfect.
Sister Act
And then I found this little girl who would make a perfect younger sister.
We all went to Costa yesterday afternoon and James and Zoe shared a bag of mini muffins. These two were left over - just for me maybe? Wicked!!!
Chitty, Chitty Bang Bang
I have found another car and this one comes with a chauffeur!
Dirty Dancing
I need to find myself a man and get out more. I love dancing and have put on my fave party dress. I need to get down and dirty soon before I go mad! Any offers?
We Will Rock You
This little pig knocks out some banging tunes and I love to dance around him.
I am having a bad hair day today and so need to wear a hat. No amount of hairspray is going to help me!

Duckie's posts - Gardening related

Every garden may have some weeds.
The garden in our new house has been pretty neglected over the years, but I found these pretty little weeds today.
Let's get down and dirty.
Oooh look what I found when I was snooping round the garden - yeuch!!! And we don't even have a dog.
Scatter seeds of happiness.
Zoe insisted on buying some seeds the other day as she wants to grow some flowers - mind you they haven't been planted yet.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Look at these tiny little daffodils. I am not very tall but even sitting down, I am much bigger than them. Aren't they cute?
You should compost because a rind is a terrible thing to waste.
James has been cutting back some of the bushes and stuff and has made a big pile of it all. But I found this big bin behind it which I presume is a compost bin. Trouble is there was so many cuttings in front that I couldn't get near it to see what it was like inside. Another left over from the previous owners.
I never promised you a rose garden.
Claire assures me that this is a rose bush - I will wait and see!
There is never enough thyme.
We are not ones to grow our own herbs so I had to have a scrummage through the food cupboards and this is the closest thing I could find.

What have you recycled today?

In our new house, the recycling is pretty poor. We have a tiny rectangular bin for bottles and tins and papers have to go in a bag. They don't take any cardboard - rubbish. Here is our recycling for the week.

What is your favourite children's games and why?

I love to play Twister as I can beat anyone seeing as I am so bendy

Saturday night is DVD night, what is your favourite film?

Well seeing as I am made of plastic and very flexible, it has to Bend It Like Beckham.

Monkey's Prompts Part 1

This the prompts have been set by Monkey and I am pleased to say that they are much easier than Bongo's.

"There are signs of Spring starting to show, go outside and see what you can see"
Opposite our house is a field and in front is a verge and there is a big clump of Snowdrops. Claire keeps on about how lovely they are so she dragged me out in the cold, with no coat on, to do a quick photoshoot.
"No week is complete without a bit of extreme sporting. Try something extreme today and tell me how you got on - it might give me some new ideas to try!"
Today was so lovely that it was decided that we go down to the seaside and walk along the seafront from Shore Road at Sandbanks to Branksome Chine. Zoe was on her bike and I sneaked a ride. It is quite an extreme sport and she is lethal. She goes so fast and doesn't look where she is going.
