It has been my week to give the toys a prompt and it was one word EXPLORE and I have been exploring a lot over the past week.
My week started by going to London and while I was there I explored Jules’s flat.
From her kitchen window you can see the London Eye but unfortunately you can not see it in this photo.
What you can see is that the apartment is very high up and I did get a little worried when I was balanced on the open window ledge!
On exploring the apartment I found a lovely selection of twigs to climb up!
Also a Duckie with a bandaged head.
Jules lifted me up to admire one of the paintings hanging on her wall.
During a very relaxing evening I was allowed to play with Jules’s iphone.
The next day I went on a train journey, it was the first time I had ever been on a train and it went very fast!

On our return to London I explored the South bank and saw the London Eye close up and I could also see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
Then it was a bus ride home to Oxford, it seemed to me that everyone was sleeping on the coach.
Sunday was Colin’s birthday and he had a rather yummy looking birthday cake; I could not resist exploring how it tasted.
The next time I was taken out to explore was with Abbie and she was in charge of me and the camera! We went down by the river and Abbie thought it would be fun for me to try flying for the first time and boy could she throw me up high!

I was relieved when she stopped and decided to take this photo of us both.
Shirley took me out shopping a few times first it was to the supermarket where there were loads of wire baskets piled up.
Then it was off to John Lewis, I was really pleased that I was not left in the car after reading this notice!
Shirley and Colin went shopping for a new bed this week but some how Shirley also managed to buy a new handbag. It has lots of pockets which I had fun exploring. Hopefully with this pocket on the outside it will mean that I will not be stuffed inside where I can not see what is happening.
After a day at home we went out exploring again. There is a lovely town nearby called Abingdon and as you can see there are some lovely flower tubs there and lots of places to see!

Exploring around I found this funny looking telephone box, Shirley explained to me that people who do not have mobile phones use them to make phone calls.
It certainly looks very different to the iphone that I played with when I stayed with Jules.
There were lots of bikes but Shirley would not let me sit on any of them.
The old Town hall looked very grand.
We found the new Town hall and to be honest I do not think it looks as exciting as the old one.
One of the main events in the country this week has been General election and Shirley and Colin went to put their crosses on a bit of paper. Whilst they were inside the polling station I explored sliding down the handrail. It was very hard and cold.
Now I have done a lot of exploring this week and it has been very interesting but the most exciting part of my exploring this week has been with Pip. It was an amazing kiss and I think it is time for me to go shopping at the jewellers!!!
