Fun in the Winter Sun, Part One!

Paddy and Plunkett on Holiday - H Crawford/CrawCrafts BeastiesIt’s been a while since we heard from Paddy and Plunkett, and now I can reveal why… These two intrepid Beasties, clever little monsters that they are, decided to head south to escape the rather grey and gloomy winter we’ve been having! Like I always say, it’s pretty easy for a Beastie to sneak aboard a suitcase or stow away in a handbag… after that, it’s just a case of choosing where they want to go.

And this time, it was destination Gran Canaria! A bit of sun, sea and sand always helps the Northern winter pass a little more quickly. The boys made landfall after sunset…

“Hey Plunkett, grab me a few of those Beastie-sized doughnuts from the basket in the middle, would you?”

Next, feeling pleasantly full (but having effectively bankrupted the hotel restaurant), the boys headed out to explore! First, they found a giant sundial… A much more useful thing here than at home in Ireland!

Then, a jaunt on a penny farthing bicycle!

“Gaaaaaah! Paddy! Why do I always let you drive?!”

  1. Nothing is more pleasurable during winter than being able to take off to sunny places for a while.

  2. Wow these two Beasties really have a jet set life style, moi jealous ermmmm YES
    How on earth do your boys keep so trim with the copious amount of food & drink they consume ??
    hollow leg syndrome possibly LOL

    1. That, and their heads are full of stuffing πŸ˜‰ And as for the two of them getting their unfair share of trips away, you are so right! I’m definitely following them next time! Have a super weekend πŸ˜€

        1. I like it! πŸ˜€ I wonder how much Heat magazine would be prepared to pay me for stealthy long-range photos of Beasties? I can just see the headlines… “Beastie Beach Bodies Special… Cellulite! Surgery Rumours! Dropped Stitches!” πŸ˜‚

  3. I’m a bit worried about the Beasties overheating in their sweaters, but at least their dapper garb gives them a bit of sun protection. Now, off to figure out how I can make myself five inches tall so I can have fun adventures.

  4. Hi there! πŸ™‚
    This was so much fun! πŸ˜€ When do we get to read the second part? πŸ™‚
    Keep writing! πŸ™‚
    Light and Peace, Zahra

    1. Hey Zahra, thanks for stopping in! And I’m glad you enjoyed the post! Part 2 is coming up this Friday. See you then… Or if you come back tomorrow, I’m doing a tour of my new-look workspace πŸ˜€
