Where has our GORGEOUS Blytonesque weather gone? It’s all cold and wet again, and once more the forecasts are suggesting that we’ll have a summer like the last one – how dull!
In happier news, we have reached over 15,000 hits on the blog and we are into our seventh month of blogging. Time goes far too quickly!
This week’s posts are a bit of muddle, I know for sure that we have Poppy’s account of Seven Stories Enid Blyton Exhibition opening as our guest blog this week.
If I get chance to get it finished and tarted up with the pictures, I shall treat you to my Mayday walk at Bourne End this week. If I am unsuccessful I shall have to let you have the next part of Julian’s News to enjoy. (To catch up, click here!)
Quite honestly, I don’t know what Fiona will treat you to. It may be her review of The Sea of Adventure, it may not. So we’ll all have a surprise!
Just a little reminder for our readers on the 15th June there is a gathering in Enid Blyton’s childhood home of Beckenham where there will be a tour of her old houses. If you’re interested check the Enid Blyton Society Thread here, and feel free to email Tony Summerfield about joining the group!
Some of my week included exciting news. The duck (henceforth called Jemima Puddleduck) who flew into the small enclosed garden at work has been sitting on her eggs for the last month, and has now hatched her eggs into 16 cute cheeping little balls of fluffy ducklings.
Jemima and the ducklings are all doing fine, swimming in the pond and wandering around the garden.
These 16 little bundles have broken Woodley Library’s record for ducks which was set at 12. Not only that but they have proved to be the biggest distraction at work. I hope you agree with me, and enjoy the pictures!
Oh my goodness! I would NEVER get any work done if I had that bundle of cuteness to distract me! Great pics 🙂
Lovely ducks! Thank you for the cute pictures.
Can’t wait to read Fiona’s review from “Sea of Adventure”, one of my favorite Blyton books. I’m still dreaming of doing that same trip one day…
