Christmas and New Year

Christmas was lovely and we spent it with my parents. (Tony's are sadly no longer with us) During our summer holidays in near Kingswear we visited Kingswear Bears which has the most wonderful selection of bruins and friends. We bought a Meerkat for Ali, she asked my Mum to make a costume for him as she wanted him to be Alexandr Orlov from the comparethemeerkat.com website. (for those of you who don't live in the UK, Alexandr is head of Compare the Meerkat.com and has his own TV commercials complaining about all the people who visit his website searching for car insurance and his catchphrase is "simples" He is brilliant and to date has had five different commercials which you can watch on his website. Now he is releasing a 60 second epic film about his ancestors, it is due to be screened on Sunday night ITV 9.20pm. For Christmas we bought another Meerkat and asked my mum to dress him as Sergei, Alexandr's IT sidekick. She did a brilliant job and Ali never suspected a thing! Ali was delighted and amazed with Sergei, and here they are together. I hope your Christmas was a good one, and that you have a Happy New Year filled with happiness and good fortune. Jane x

All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own, and if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it. Flights to Kilimanjaro
