Bilbo is coming to Gloucester!

September 3, 2009 at 8:28 am 4 comments

Bilbo’s his name, travelling’s his game and Gloucester has been chosen for the next leg of his world tour.  He’s due to arrive any day now so come back next week to see what he gets up to during his stay.  The Dirt Princess is keeping track of all the other places he’s visited since setting out from her garden in Alabama in April.

*newsflash*  Bilbo’s arrived safe and sound and bearing gifts from the lovely Jayne at The View from Bag End Bilbo on the doorstep

    Enjoy your stay in Gloucester, Bilbo. It looks like he has developed a taste for English beer while he’s been here. As you are towards the West country there, perhaps he might discover some strong scrumpy!

    Glad he has arrived safely. Enjoy your luggage tag, it looks very at home attached to your suitcase {grin}

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
