Thomassy Rabbit

When Oscar came to play yesterday we spotted the fat robin in the garden. I asked Oscar to give him a name and suggested Robert. "Thomassy Rabbit" he said without hesitation. Thomassy Rabbit is in the garden again now waiting for his breakfast and normally I would call to him, but I think I'll just leave it for now.

I taped the dinosaur programme the other night in case Oscar fancied watching it. Some of it It was rather gruesome but I thought I'd fast forward through those bits. Yes, said Oscar, he wanted to watch it, and he positioned himself on the settee furthest from the television, torch (on) in one hand and football rattle in the other. As soon as a dinosaur appeared that wasn't one of his favourites, the football rattle was put to good effect- continuously until the dinosaur had left the screen.

  1. Oh, how lovely! They look a couple of loveable scamps! Good way to blot out the bad bits. I will have to remember to keep a football rattle handy for when my husband insists on watching serials with torture & violence.
    I sometimes leave the room.
    Now I can try a rattle!

    There were some scary bits in The Dinosaur programme and my own granddaughters (who are older) watched it yesterday.

    Fancy naming a little robin after a rabbit!
