I'm home.

Well I am finally home in my little sewing room. Boy have I had a ripper of a holiday with Aunty and Uncle Bluegreen.

Really want to thank them so much for taking me with them to Europe.

Brought back some souvenirs for mum & dad too.

A holiday isn't a holiday without a postcard arriving the same day or a few days later. Also a souvenir coin from Gibraltar. Plus a DVD to add to mum's collection from River Cottage.

That one I'm not too sure about though.... may need to get mum to watch it first. Might need to flip past the scary parts.

No rest for me though, I'm off to sewing group tomorrow with mum and then into the city to see some of my family.

Also thanks to you, my fans and reader for your comments and questions while I was on holidays.

White Cliffs of Dover.

Dear Mum,

The next time you hear from me, I will be in Australia. We get on the big plane tomorrow for the long flight home. I must say that although I have enjoyed my holiday, I am looking forward to being back home with you again.

Mind you, it hasn't been that easy to leave. When it came to flying back to England from Gibralter, Cousin BJ didn't want me to go, Aunty BG stood up for me. Then when we went to the airport, they put us on a bus for Spain instead!

At first I thought it might have been a trick to try and kidnap me again, but it ended out that the planes couldn't land due to fog and we were going to another airport and made it back to London eventually.

Once back in London we drove to Dover and saw the famous White Cliffs and looked across the Channel to France.

Got to pack my bags, looking forward to seeing you soon.


Dear Percy,

Can't wait to see you again. The White Cliffs look stunning and I'm glad Aunty BG is taking care of you so well.

Hi Mum,

I am having so much fun travelling the world and making new friends.

I made a new friend while I was in Wales. His name is Draig Goch (Red Dragon). He will be coming home to Melbourne with us.

After Wales we flew to Gibralter. This is on the very tip of Spain, but is English territory. It is very small but has lots of interesting history.

This is one of the famous pillars of Hercules which legend has as marking the end of the world and the gateway to Hades.

Gibtalter played a very important part in the world wars and there is lots of big gun everywhere. Most of Gibralter is a big limestone rock the looks solid on the outside but is full of natural caves and man made tunnels.

Most of the tunnels were man made to put the big guns in to defend it.

Halt!! Who goes there??

There are also wild but friendly monkeys here.

P.S. I wasn't really in the picture with the monkeys. Aunty BG was too worried that they would run away with me, so she did something clever on the computer to make it look like I was right there with them.

Love Percy.

Dear Percy,

Glad your still enjoying your holiday. Sounds like you having a blast. So glad the monkeys never got too close to you.

Love Mum.
