I have been allowed out to play again.

Long time no see as the saying goes.
I have had a busy year one way and another, it was just as well Shirley's camera wasn't around for all of it!
Last weekend I got a big surprise when the cupboard door opened and I was grabbed most unceremoniously and told that I was off to meet my Cuz Monkey, now this was exciting because if you remember Pip and I went on holiday with Monkey and his family, in fact it was our honeymoon if I recall correctly. Well to be honest you could have knocked me down with a feather, I thought I had been abandoned for life. Pip and Candy were left behind as apparently there was only room for one in Shirley's handbag now she's carries her iPad in it. We were off to meet up with a load a crafting friends at Sal's newly converted barn. Now I have met these friends before as you know and to be honest I was wondering if another day in the cupboard was a better option.
On arriving at Sal's place all I could say was WOW it is amazing and it even had fish in the pond on the front garden, how cool is that? Well the ladies had a really big table to craft on and they actually made some things which to be honest they don't usually do as they seem to spend a lot of time chatting, laughing and eating.
It was great to meet up with my Cuz Monkey again and he brought along his new mate Elf, apparently Elf is planning to surprise Monkey's carers on the 1st December when he delivers their advent calendars. He had to come along with Monkey apparently as he is liable to get into mischief if he is not watched carefully and Alli thought it was safer to have him out of the house if she was not around. We got stuck on a smaller table.BUT Rich came to our rescue, he stopped working on his fireplace building for a little while and despite a little bit of a headache he thought it would be an idea for us to do some carol singing! Personally I think it was just an excuse to show us just what a great pianist he is. Note he was playing with out music, how clever is that?
I think that Elf is definitely going to cause some trouble for Monkey and his carers, he started jumping onto Sally's best chicken ornament. Monkey and I just watched, we were worried he might break it and then we would all have got into trouble.
Next he came across this really high heeeled pair of shoes.
Goodness knows how any human can walk in them! They must be very clever. This time I could not resist popping in beside Elf, hopefully Emily did not mind us trying on her shoes.
Just before we all packed up to come home Elf managed to get in amongst all the snowmen that were being made. He does look rather cute in amongst all those girlie snowmen but to be honest I think my Cuz is going to have his work cut out living with him.
Be back soon I hope.

Saying my goodbyes.

2010 has seen many changes in my life, I have been to many places and made lots of new friends, I even married one of them! Last night I went to dinner at Curly's house and was teased rather a lot, I even managed to get my head turned right around! Thank goodness Curly was there to rescue me, I hadn't seen her in ages so it was lovely to catch up on all her news. She told me she had been very poorly with Swine flu, how weird is that a lamb getting Pig flu. She is much better now thank goodness. In fact I persuaded her to come home with me for a while and she was ready with her bag packed in no time, especially when I told Sid was really missing her.

You can see from the photo below that some of us have got together for one last photo shoot of the year.
Pip, Candy and I are especially sad to be saying good bye to you all at the end of my year of blogging. However, we are now looking forward to spending some time together away from the prying lens of Shirley's camera. Who knows what the future has in store for us, perhaps one day I will rich and famous but until then I am one very lucky Chimp who has had an incredible year.

So goodbye my friends and thank you for taking the time to come along here and share my year with me.
Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
