Stripy Trip to the Edinburgh Festival

The sun came out at the last minute, to dry up the soggy grass and make our day at the Edinburgh Book Festival a lovely warm one. Thanks to everyone who came along, we were a bit nervous in front of so many people, but you all made us very welcome and sang your heads off too! Hello Yvonne – hope your new friend is settling in?

Afterwards Stripy Horse took us along to the newly re-opened National Museum of Scotland, which is full of almost as many incredible things as his Bric-a-Brac Shop. We learned all about Dodos and Kakapos and saw an enormous Sun Fish – go and have a look if you get the chance, its nearly as big as a bus! On the way home he said hello to Greyfriars Bobby and met some very different, but just as colourful horses…

Stripy Stories at Bentalls and the Lollibop Festival

Phew! Its been a busy couple of days. We did lots of colouring-in at Bentalls in Kingston on Thursday (Happy First Birthday to little Bethany!)…

…and we’ve just come back from a packed Lollibop Festival in Regents Park, where the sun shone just long enough for Stripy Horse to have his photo taken when we arrived!

We’re off up to Edinburgh next week – hope to see some of you at the book festival there or at the Just So Festival in Stafford the week after. Fingers crossed for some proper Summer weather…
