this is the moment when ronnie met ronnie. a monkey and a monkey. this little fella isn’t available to buy in the shops until late august, but being the boss (ha ha ha yeah right) i got one early for my little monkey.
there are many things that stand out as very british, the union jack, big ben (or is that elizabeth tower now?), the bulldog, the bacon butty, the cup of tea, the underground, fish and chips, the queen, wimbledon, the BBC, a roast dinner, the weather, pubs, strawberries and cream, the beatles, the tower of london, black cabs, red post boxes, crumpets! this could go on and on. however there is one thing that is missing from this brief list and that is the first thing mi abuela (my grandmother) wanted to see and go on the first and only time she came to visit the great british isles.
my my how this year has whizzed past, can you believe we are very much nearly at the end of 2013, quite shocking isn’t it? well we are! no doubt christmas lists have already been written by many children and adults alike, shopping may or may not have commenced, and hidden away in the back of cupboards and under the stairs. menus are being pulled together for fabulous festive dinners and treats and goodies are being stashed away in the larder for the whole family to enjoy together over this special time of year.
