Exciting ideas for the new year

Remember I told you about my colouring book idea !

I love to draw and been planning it for a while . I am not an illustrater but have always been good at art .Love to doodle and can draw if I put my mind to it. The more I think about it could write a children’s book my monkeys have all taken on there own characters  and are different . Perhaps I can bring my grandson Joe into the story you never know .


I wouldn’t have thought this possible but this is a way of exspanding my business . Don’t know if anyone would be interested but love to give it a go     I go to bed and my head is filled with ideas ! So much so I can’t sleep but need to think and have time and don’t seem to have a lot of that at the moment. Perhaps in the new year when things are quieter ?

Been a lot more relaxed this year I am normally on panic mode at this point at Christmas .But I get more done and better if done at my own pace Other wise I am not happy with my work . Who are my monkeys well at the moment very much part of my life I eat ,sleep and dream monkeys it’s not good I can’t switch off .

I am getting my monkey orders done ! When all done and sent out I can think about Christmas festivities . All the family are round my house this year so looking forward to that 🎄


Hope to have a few more blog tales to tell and more monkey adventures soon thanks for reading .





Rocks second Birthday

To Day was Rocks birthday . Always best to start the day with a cup of coffee before the day ahead .


As I explained earlier rock was one of my first batch of monkeys when I first started making them as a business . I had made others but you just know when your getting it right !

Had a good day decided to take him with me today . Monday’s shopping day so this morning we went to tesco . He was very good had an attraction  to all things yellow for some reason as you can see in the pictures .

I got some funny looks . Trying to take pictures of my mischievous monkey climbing on the cornflakes haha . We called in the cafe for a bite to eat as it was lunch time . Time for a scone and a pot of tea he’s a very hungry monkey .









Finished our shopping bought lots of cakes for rocks birthday party!

When I got home me and hubby had a bit of gardening to do . I have an apple tree and why hubby cut the grass I collected the apples from the tree  with rock .


Filled a bucket full of apples but still lots more. If I don’t collect them they will fall on floor and rot and go to waist Perhaps make apple pie . Rock wasn’t very helpful he was to excited about the party ! Or was that me .


So much fun here’s rock with his cake and birthday cardimageLove this picture forgot to mention rock likes custard creams .

all got a bit crazy after that but we all had a great time !
