The Temperate House, Revisited

Well hello there, Beastie friends! Last week we followed Explorer Beastie as he caught up with his old buddy Garcia Beastie in the colourful surroundings of Kew Gardens.

Monsters in the Memory Palace

Well lookee here - it's Tuesday again already! And what better way to spend a January Tuesday than to pretend we're all on holiday?

To The Manor Born – Beasties at Powerscourt!

Hello there Beastie friends! Well, after a quick new Beastie pit stop last week, we're back on the road with Paddy and Plunkett.

Paddy's Pool - H Crawford/CrawCrafts Beasties

Paddy, Plunkett and the Fish Pond

Wait a second... FISH POND? I thought the boys were off to Senegal! Apparently not. They were all set to go, but as they headed down the coast, they were won over to the idea of a quiet day at the seaside. Then... "Hey, what's that weird-looking building in among the rocks?" Once again, the … Continue reading Paddy, Plunkett and the Fish Pond

Beasties in the Bluebells!

Well hello there everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day here in Dublin, and to make it EVEN BETTER, some pictures from Paddy and Plunkett dropped into my inbox last week.

Hello everybody! Sorry we're a little late this week... We've been off enjoying ourselves over the Easter (or BEASTer) break!

Buckfast Beasties!

Hello everybody, and I hope this new week is treating you well!
