24th January 09 - Monkey World

Had a fantastic day out at Monkey world, with Mum and Dad and Uncle Bob and Lee, it was a total surprise for Lee who had no idea we were taking her to Monkey world.. it was great to see such surprise on her face... We all enjoyed the day but I think Lee enjoyed it the best!

The real use for walking sticks... Uncle Bob and Jon show us where we need to go next!

Memorial to Jim.. such a fantastic guy!

Whats the name of the hair product to make my hair spike like that?

Spot the real monkey lol...

Thank you Uncle Bob and Mum & Dad for arranging such a wonderful day... the weather held out perfect!

Oh nearly forgot... Jon adopted an orang-utan called "Dinda" who was born at Monkey World in 2006 to "RoRo".. both were seen lots on the Monkey World TV program.

Anfield Match 19th Jan 2009

At Christmas I arranged an extra surprise for Jon and the boys... 4 tickets to Anfield to watch a Liverpool v Everton Derby...We had a fantastic trip to Anfield.... Many thanx to Deano and Steve H for sorting the tickets out for us.

Planned on only putting a few pics up... but I actually like so many of them going to bore you again with them all.

Pre Match:

Warm ups.. (the teams not us!)

Match Time...

and after!

The score at the end of the match was 1-1... which was a real shame as Liverpool had needed a win to stay top of the table.. still its a close season so far!

New Rock Band... ok maybe not.. 9.1.2009

Thank you Chris, Suzie and Chloe for inviting us round for a Jamming session!

Not sure Jon appreciated the singing and music playing.. (well clicking of the instruments) but he certainly had a good laugh at us all.

I must admit Chloe was a much better singer than I was... and Chris R was the best drummer...Suzie and little Chris were good on the guitars... I was just awful at most things I tried but laughed meself silly lol.

heres a handful of pics of our night!

Rob was there but he stayed out of the way when photos were taken and had a bit of a go at drumming.

At the end of the eve he took this photo of us... not a bad photograph too
