DRAKE'S TALE CONTINUES

You may or may not remember that Ronny sent a little baby Gregor out into the big wide world on a mission to have adventures and then return home having gathered up souvenirs along the way, so that once home, he can be, along with his gifts, raffled for in aid of the homeless.
He is called Drake after one of Ronny's pirate I mean illustrious ancestors.

Well he arrived in the Village the week of the Chat n Snap, very tired after his long flight from Spain but after a nap and some food, he was full of life and wanted to attend the chat n snap and help out where he could.


zz

He was very helpful and sat in the swing demonstrating how it worked to anyone who came past and even when they did not!

He only left the swing later to sit in the playpen and play with Leo another little baby who found a new home at the chat n snap with Dollmum and daughter.


Since the chat n snap he's been enjoying a lovely rest and just being a baby playing with the Village babies Quinn, Gorgeous George, Elton Ron, Rosie, April and Mia.



But now the time's come for Drake to continue his adventures because he must be home by Christmas.


All the boys are in the Playpen, having a lovely time.


Drake cuddles up to the Giraffe while the other decide what to do next!


after a while Drake starts playing with his favourite toy, the jack in the box!


He likes to push it down into the box then turn the handle until....


he jumps out and makes them all start! then laugh out loud in glee...then Drake pushes jack back into the box and it all starts again!!!


Quinn hears mum come into the room, so gets up to smile at her .Mum explains that it's nearly time for Drakes lift to his next place to visit.


She looks into the Playpen but Drakes missing! Then she sees him behind George and Elton Ron who are trying to hide him, so he can stay with them forever!


George and Elton Ron start crying as Drake's taken from the playpen with Quinn calling " No No Mum !"
But Drake cannot stay so mum takes him out to Hattie to change into warm clothes while she gives all the babies some cuddles and explains about Drakes Adventures that are all for a good cause! The babies HATE good causes ....


But mum is sneaky and gives them Storm's bead toy which they love and soon Elton Ron is trying to move the bead over the wire while George watches closely !


Drakes now wearing some warm tights under his onesie and a lovely warm Cable jacket and hat, his dog tucked under his arm while he waits for his lift.He has so many things in his box , I'll have to send his blanket straight to his mum in deepest darkest Sussex..


Bye Drake enjoy your visit with Dollmum and Co , keep well and have a lovely Christmas.

    2. I like to keep you on your toes :)
      Please give more details about this new motor vehicle you have your eye on...Porsche? Volkswagen? BMW? Toyota? Nissan? Skoda?

    3. It's a Nissan Micra... no change there then!! lol But My Micra up until now's been a brilliant little car and I do like them....I gave the salesman a hard time ..here's the thing if you ever go to look at a new car after looking on their website...quote them from it...They said I was the first person to argue with what they said in showroom..much dearer to what was on website..it seems people don't look at the figures...... :)

    4. I loved my Micra, so much I didn't want to sell it when I fell in love with my BMW Mini Cooper, so I still have it :) But the Mini is SO much fun and goes like a rocket. Get a Mini...and then you could have a MINI adventure :)

      Delete
    5. I do like the Mini's and our first ever car was a mini and I am talking orginial mini! But I like to be a little higher off the ground these days getting to old to be climbing out of cars!! :)
      Me and Rockets not good, go fast enough as is!! :)

  5. .......BUT feeling rather guilty because although I took some lovely photos of him when he was here I still haven't blogged them. It's on the never ending 'To-do list!

    It was great seeing him again at the Chat n' Snap and as you will see in my hopeful? blog post tomorrow I did buy him a Sashapotamus onesie from there to replace the previous one that I had bought but which seems to have got itself lost in the chaos here when I was sending his other items onto SS-R and hasn't appeared since! (Mental note.Must send that one down before that too disappears!)

    Lovely to see 'The Sasha Room' in play again.... but not for the reason that it is.....Winter has come around and it's too cold and dark outside to spend time out there photographing.

    Great storyline. Made me feel quite sad too that he has to leave The Village!
    Perhaps I should send my photos over to you to write one for me?????

    Hope that the central heating's now fixed and the car's behaving itself ready to get you into work tomorrow.

    1. Kendal , My blog to do list is getting longer my the minute!, this was on it for the last two weeks, then had to be hurriedly done this morning, so I could get Drake in the post before I go back to work on Monday!
      Yes the Sasha room is back ! :)
      It is sad that he must continue his travels but we wish him well.
      The heating decided it was just playing and came back on and Paul had to just run around bleeding radiators and things and touch wood it's ok!
      The car is still playing up but I went to look at a nice new one this morning!!! so maybe it's days are numbered!!!

  6. Awww baby Drake, such a cute boy! I'm glad to see that he has enjoyed himself in The Village, as I was sure he would anyway! He looks really nice and warm in his cosy knitted outfit too. Glad to see he is still loving his funny felt dog!
    When I see photos of babies like this, I think I need/want one....then I think it through and don't think I do.....decisions, decisions!!!! Do I want one or don't I? That is the question!!!

    1. He loves the outfit you made him :) and his little felt dog goes everywhere with him.
      Mm do you need a baby ? probably not.... do you want a baby? that's another question!! :)

  7. We are looking forward to welcoming Drake as he makes his journey from the village. I am glad you have given him some warm clothes for the trip as the wather is definitely much chillier now.

    1. He did need them now the weather's turned. I would have included his blanket but just need to finish the edge!
      He is so looking forward to meeting Leo again and Leo's new family :)
