The next day after we arrived home, Annie brought George back …Apparently he had a really lovely time with Stanley. They became best buddies. He loved being with Stanley so much that he asked to sleep with Stanley in the kitchen.
But I was a little grumpy with himI made sure he was on best behaviour
Georgie checked out the bow in my hair Well, do you like it? We gave George the little present we brought back for him from Lugano.Little Tommy Turtle. We thought it is more his size.
Anyway, Georgie, I think we’re all tired. Mummy and I had a long trip and I know you’ve had a fun time and probably confused as to what is happening.You’ve been away with Stanley while Mummy and I were away. But let’s give today a rest and I will tell you more about our trip tomorrow when we are both more settled and back to routine.
May’s comment: It is always difficult to leave one behind. If I could I would have taken them both but I would never have been able to do what we did. I had taken them together to Berlin by ferry and train – and we managed because we had a dog-lover at the end of the journey who helped with the two of them. We would have to travel solely on land and sea. But we’ll go away altogether over New Year’s. Till then we all need a little rest.
