I am a slack dolphin

rain 9 °C

First of all i must apologise for the title of this blog, it is not something which i chose to type but was forced to by the humans who have been pestering me to write more blog. I must tell you that i was suffering from a severe case of typers fin, a condition suffered by dolphins only. Colin was also suffering from a condition known as typrs trunk. So that is the reason we have been unable to blog for the last couple of days.

Hopefully i can catch you all up on whats been going on over here in the wonderful world of england.

Sunday was spent rugged up indoors as there was perpetual rain outside along with wind and generally cold conditions.

Monday we decided to go shopping into a town called Chelmsford. It is the nearest major town to hear and contains many different shops as well as a a huge shopping complex. We spent most of the days looking around for christmas presents. Although we decided not to buy many things as we realised we could buy them a lot cheaper in australia. So we just wrote up lists of what we were going to get people. Then we headed over to the cinemas only to find that there were no good movies out.

Tuesday we spent relaxing, mainly because the humans couldnt get out of bed, talk about sleeping in. I say that when its dark you sleep, when its light you get up, but not according to them. They think its quite alright to sleep in until well after midday, talk about a pain in the a...i mean..what a pain.

Wednesday saw another trip into chelmsford and some more shopping. Although this time the cnema line up had changed. The latest release 'the golden compass' was on and jess decided it would be good to see. Matt isnt much into movies but seeing as it was freezing outside, the cinema seemed like a good place to be. The movie was, well, let me just say that if dolphins made movies, it would have been better. In fact, colin and i could have provided more entertainment for two hours at a much cheaper rate. The movie wasnt that great and it was one of those movies that didnt actually end, it just stopped in the middle and they expect you to go and see the sequel.

Thursdya was the best day of the week because we headed into london to see madams tasauds wax museum. For those of you who dont know, it is a big museum containing wax figures of numerous famous people from across the world. It was a really good display and some of the wax figures were really good. The pictures are great, although unfortunately i do not star in any of them. There isalso a chamber of horrors which contains gruesome figures and explains the nasy goings on that led to madam tasauds creating the wax museum, an interesting tory if anyone is interested. In the chamber of horror their are real life people too who jump out at you and try and scare you. Lets just say that i had to lead the shuddering humans through to the other side before they started crying.

Here are some pictures of the famous people we met on the day:
Matt was thrilled to meet Harry Potter himself!

and I'm a slack auntie! Don't know what I think of an Elm St adress after all that talk of Madam Tussaud's and goriness..:-) an interesting juxtaposition Flap...but if Matt's not much into movies, he'll be in blissful ignorance so let's keep it that way! xx
