I hope you are all well and happy and have had a nice week.
Last week I asked if anyone had and pet pictures they would like to send in, either of your pets or of pets you would like and I’ve been sent a few so here they are..
Oliver and Evie have a 14 year old rescue cat called Amber, even though she is a bit shy and timid she has had a pose for the camera
Charlie has done a lovely drawing of the pet he would choose (and looking at the wall behind him he has been VERY busy making lots of pictures!) He would like a pet rabbit..
The pets that Logan would like wouldn’t be very popular with Miss Latham or myself (eeuuww spider!) but he certainly looks happy with them and has obviously been super busy making his reticulated python!
Florence has a gorgeous hamster called Posie, she is very good at feeding and playing with her but isn’t too keen on cleaning 🤣. I think you’ll all agree she’s a cutie..
Eli has the best names for his fish.. Godzilla, Rainbow and Lego. He has drawn them for us AND written their names, well done Eli!
Jacob looks very happy relaxing with his dog Blue, who I think looks the most chilled out of all our pets
I thought it might be a nice treat to have a few new grown up contributors to the blog this week and have a look at their pets. I’ll start off with my pet Bob. His favourite things are going for walks, sausages, having a sausage on a walk and cooling down on hot days in his very own pool..
Miss Latham has sent a lovely picture of Ben, he really does look very happy sitting in the shade on a sunny day
Mrs Sheehan has two pets in her house, Pebbles the cat and a rapidly growing puppy called Cooper, aren’t they lovely!
It hasn’t all been about pets this week, here’s a peep at what some of you have been up to…
Logan has had a cool down in his pool..
Oliver has made a stencil painting using different colours in one stencil, very clever! He has also had a barbecue for VE Day.
Talking about VE Day Oliver sent in a picture of his Great Grandad who was in the Navy during WW2..
I did say I would have a look for the things my grandad had in the war, after a bit of potholing through eaves I found some of them! So here they are..
This is my grandad, with some of the soldiers he was with and a couple of the badges he wore. Also some of the money that was issued to the soldiers, back on October 21st 1943 he wrote on it that it was a souvenir from North Africa.
All the soldiers carried a piece of paper called Safe Conduct, they had them in case they got into any bother, by handing it in they were able to get looked after. There is also a postcard that was given to the soldiers so they could send messages to their family.
They couldn’t come home for special occasions like Christmas or Easter and had to celebrate where they were. Here is a hymn sheet from Easter (5.4.44) and a Christmas card that my grandad was given.
People had to carry identity cards during and after the war, even children had to have them! It had their details on showing where they live.
There that’s it, I hope you liked the little history lesson, I enjoyed looking through all my grandads things 🙂
Right it’s been quite a big blog this week so I’m going to stop now, I’m getting hungry! That brings me nicely to what we can do next week… FOOD.
