Izzi's birthday!!

Crikey ..... I haven't shown you any pics of the little girls for a while, aye??  They sure are growing up fast.
I think they love me!!
I sure love her!!
Miss G broke her arm a short while back.  Kidd'n that wasn't a drama!! The worst part was that she couldn't go swimming and it's HOT here!!  Miss G. loves swimming BUT ..... remember how she used to always go NAKED.  Well ..... NOT ANY MORE!!!  She won't let anyone see her naked these days.
Not a happy camper, aye??

Oh dear!!

AND we've just celebrated Miss Izzi's 7th Birthday!!  SEVEN ..... crikey where did those years go.  She wanted an emoji cake so Mum and Jen went to work and came up with one for her.  It wasn't one of their best efforts but Miss Izzi liked it.
She would have liked the poo emoji but Mum and Jen  didn't want to encourage her toilet humour.

She was pretty happy with it all, anyway!!

AND Miss Jo ..... what to say ..... just as sweet as ever!!!  She's my favourite but don't tell anyone.  She gives the best cuddles and always has time for me.  She's learning the piano and doing ever so well. Mum went to her end of year concert the other day and she reckoned Miss Jo was the best performer there.  Not biased at all, aye??
She played When the Saints go marching in and Jingle bells.  

That Christmas tree star was very aptly positioned, aye?

So there's a bit of a catchup on the girls and I'll finish off with an update on HERBIE.  Oh my ..... what a pest!! He's 1 now and still drives me to distraction.  He LOVES me and is in my face all the time and he NEVER rests.  I do like it when he visits but I like it even better when he goes home.

He's so brown he's hard to photograph and look how big he is.  He weighs more than me and he's always on top of me.  big meanie.  

Wanna run ........ Love, Charlie.


  1. Your girls *are* growing up into pretty young ladies!
    Petcretary cannot believe how fast the years went by, my boss boy is 27 now:)

    Happy Birthday to Miss Izzy!
    I do hope Miss G's arm is all better now.
    And you know boss boy used to play from that same book of piano when he was taking lessons! Congrats to Miss Jo on doing so that star, BOL!

  2. Thanks for the update. I can see the girls love you Charlie and I really like the cake. C'mon, confess, you love the attention from Herbie.

  3. Thanks for the family update Charlie. Those girls are all coming along splendidly aren't they? Of course it is natural that you have a favourite, but don't tell the world, right?
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail thinks your Mum is so clever with the cake, and even agrees that the poo emoji was best left off (although I think that would have been the best bit...)

  4. Happy Birthday to Miss Izzy! Her cake is so beautiful! Your girls are all getting so big - and so pretty, Charlie!

    Charlie - maaaattteee - what a fabby update you gave us today! The girls are definitely young ladies now... and is it pawssible you are growing even more handsome??! Herbie looks like a goof-ball right enough; but a cheerful one. Luvya, missya and sending great big hugs and wags your way. YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Your girls are getting so grown up and pretty. How could they not love you. My Mom is trying to learn how to play a keyboard piano because she used to play a regular piano many many many many years ago but she's not very good yet so no recital for her. Herbie would not be welcome at our house cause both Rocky and me are old and cranky and we don't play anymore. Love the cake.

  7. Happy Birthday Izzy , my how you ave grown.
    And Herbie he is one huge ball of black heavy fluff, will keep you inline Charlie.

  8. Happy birthday Izzy! Hooray! How the girls have grown! The cake looks yummy!

    Ghostwriter remembers all the school concerts she had to go to. All of the 4 siblings were in chorus and band (sometimes several bands—jazz, big band, orchestra, regular band—and several chorus groups too!)

    And tell Herbie not to smother you, Charlie!

  9. They are all growing up so quickly! And of course they all love you!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
