Chirpy chirpy cheep cheep

I was wandering up the road to work last Friday when I heard a little whimpering sound coming from somewhere around my feet. Looking down, I saw this sorry little chap, lying lost and abandoned, half buried under a pile of leaves at the side of the road.


I picked him up, calmed him down and gave him a few sips of water, whereupon he snuggled down among the tissues in my coat pocket and slept for the rest of the day!

Once I got home again, and after a 'bath', he still didn't look too happy, huddled in his blanket feeling sorry for himself.


So, I handed him over to Miss Bertha to nurse back to health.


That did the trick - Miss Bertha is a wonder with the little ones! And before long little Chirpy was feeling much more himself and ready to join in all the regular monkey games.


And he rather enjoyed a little treat at the weekend with me and Iona!



007 is very protective of the little ones!


See you next time!

Your little stuffed family is so cute... and the dress up! :) I've been thinking of making one or 2 for myself (as my "kid" is 18 now and not really into that anymore...), they are so cuddly...
