Thank you so much Mummy for making me a ToyVoyager. Can I come to the allotment with you?
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qo4H0OGYKbE/Tsgh8Vi38gI/AAAAAAAAEm0/sGg-fBKfrvc/s500/bearsplot1.jpg
My brother and I have come out to the first time to the allotment. These are nice looking leeks.

Daddy put a pond down the allotment. It is a new pond. Do you think that black cat is friendly?
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-CZ0X70ecfkw/TsgiCS_q-iI/AAAAAAAAEm8/eXziC3aSTvw/s500/bearsplot3.jpg
The cat is sleepy so we had a look towards the beetroot and leeks.

We are going for a little walk.

We've come to a sandy place near Conwy.

Mummy had put in some dried fruit for soaking in brandy the other day.

Today, we will make the Christmas cake.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-G_mcWoqCLG0/TuXlYsqcxjI/AAAAAAAAEus/oTRVahO86ao/s500/cake2.jpg
The butter and sugar is being creamed.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ixQ44L2gixo/TuXmWGe1vCI/AAAAAAAAEu0/3m6_LCRet8c/s500/cake3.jpg
Eggs were added.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-MDL9Qta3NXs/TuXmXzEmEJI/AAAAAAAAEu4/IhDUBusX30U/s500/cake4.jpg
Flour, spices, the fruit, nuts and treacle also get added.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-NyseJn-5WQY/TuXmbc77GfI/AAAAAAAAEu8/u6eM16-2Zno/s500/cake5.jpg
The cake will take 4 hours in the oven, after our bedtimes. Maybe we'll have a photo with it when the cake is fed some more brandy.

This is Chain Bridge, and it gives its name to the honey farm. And across the river is Scotland.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-VgtD728zrXs/UrI6rgASw9I/AAAAAAAAMGU/kdXxle3DU_g/s500/chain2.jpg
The bridge crosses the River Tweed
