Van Gogh

Meeting Vincent!!!


Day out!!!

Not as exciting as what my friend Curly will be doing soon, but still,
they remembered to take me out!

We went to London this afternoon to look at Vincent van Gogh's art and
letters at the Royal Academy. John is a Friend, so we just walked in!

The pictures were very pretty, but it was very crowded. Not the best
place for midget giraffes like me, so I stayed in Laura's bag.

Afterwards they took me to see Liberty's, which is where Laura took
Alex when I was in America. Then we went to dinner in a pub and there
was beer!

On the train home a Student Vet was handing out chocolate. I wonder if
he could've vetted me if I was sick? Doubt he's dealt with giraffes! :)

Love Melman

I mustn't forget that I also met Lulu, but I don't know who was more startled!

Even More Friends!

Some of the Ladies brought along their toys. You've already met Curly in an earlier post (and if you aren't Following her, then you should be!), but there is also a picture of me with Sue's bear Fuzz and Jo with her bear. I'm sorry that I can't remember Bears name. :(

Retreat: Day Two

On the second day of the Retreat more people arrived to adore me. I wasn't sure about some of them as they said I was smaller than they were expecting and one lady called me "That Midget Giraffe", which I hope was a term of endearment...

I went to a place which sold scrapbooking supplies and I played with some scissors while Laura made a card for her Mum.

I also finally met CURLY today!!!! I was very happy. :D If it's possible, I would say she's even cuter than I am!

I won!

Well, I suppose Laura won really, but as she was doing a layout all about ME and poetry about GIRAFFES, I fully intend to take all the credit!

See? Here I am on this Indigo Mill Blog!

Retreat - Day One

I think it's time that I catch up with what I've been doing recently, apart from being cute, of course, which I do all the time.

I've decided that my life is a series of short exciting trips and long stretches of sitting in my bedroom staring at the walls. That's rather sad. :(

Oh, I can't be sad. Being sad doesn't suit me. I'm far too adorable.

I met Tuppenny Wee at the Retreat. He belongs to Aunty Susi, she's sat in the background.

Laura tried to take a picture of us both in the hallway mirror. She forgot to look at the camera, but I didn't! I always know where the camera is.

All packed!

I've been very quiet recently as Laura hasn't been taking me
anywhere. I wanted to go to work with her, but she "forgot" to take
me. She always tells me "maybe next time", but that never seems to

She and John also conveniently forgot to take me to Loch Fyne last
Friday, but they said that was genuine and they really DID mean to
take me.

At least I'm all ready for the Bijoux Belles retreat. Can't wait to
meet Curly. Hopefully there will be lots of chances to have my
photo taken. I enjoy posing. :)
