Croft, Warrington, England - 1st August 2011

By: Gizalba

Wooo! Mum I'm here!!! :D I heard toys outside my envelope discussing the nice stamps and I was thinking 'never mind the stamps, let me out!!!' I was so happy to stretch my legs, but then I remembered all the goodies I had brought with me, so went back to get them. My host was very thankful for the card, sweets and keyring - the keyring especially as she loves mooses!

There seemed to be lots of cameras around... I felt like a celebrity!  B)  Miss Becca explained that she was testing out her new camera (the old one kept eating way too many batteries - but she says sorry the first few pictures on the new one are a bit bright, before she adjusted the setting!). Buzz wanted to feel important so she let him have a go as a photographer.

Edelweiss liked the fact that the sweets had treble clefs so we had a picture together, then we arranged ourselves for a group photo with Michel and Buzz Bluejay :D

Miss Becca says Kate doesn't live close to here :( But I won't give up hope of spotting her! I can't wait to explore outside.

Warrington , England - 5th August 2011

By: Gizalba

We went to visit the town hall mum! Buzz and Edelweiss had already been so they showed Michel and I - to see town halls is one of Michel's life missions! There was a nice golden gate at the entrance and the hall had a UK flag on top.

Ooh, and the last pic is of the shelf where we sleep. It got invaded by Guatemalan Worry people! :O But it's okay because they will take all of our worries away when we sleep tonight  :D They were a present from my host's friend who had been staying with us, and she asked what TVs had to worry about. Well, of course I worry about getting lost or eaten by other animals, but I am a very brave penguin to be travelling the world. My host says she likes the quotes below the TV logo on here, especially the quote 'if you love something, set it free' :) I feel loved because I have been given such a wonderful opportunity!

Gloucester, England - 9th August 2011

By: Gizalba

We're back  :D (on sunday night we travelled down to stay with my host's friends in Gloucester). I am going to split these updates into sections. This section shows us on monday morning, learning how to quill; a skill which my host's friend taught us :)

We cut some strips of coloured paper and I chose the light green  B)  Then we used a cuticle stick which had a slit cut into the top to keep the paper strip on, and twisted the paper into a spiral. We put the spiral down, then glued the end of the paper so that we could pinch the sides of the circle to make a leaf shape. Finally we glued all of these onto the card and stuck pipe cleaners on to make the trunk of the tree. At the end of our stay we gave the card to our host's friends as a thankyou for looking after us :)

Barnwood park in Gloucester, England - 9th August 2011

By: Gizalba

On monday afternoon we went for a stroll to the local park. We had to go through a church graveyard to get to it, which was nice and calm. Then we entered the park and for some reason it looked a bit like Autumn, with the leaves falling already! :stare: Some of the trees must be confused. There was a building hidden behind the trees which looked pretty. Then we found a mini nature reserve to investigate. There didn't seem to be much wildlife about... maybe they could sense the rain coming!

Cheltenham , England - 9th August 2011

By: Gizalba

The third of our mini break updates:

This morning we visited the town centre of Cheltenham. Michel and I were posing on the wall for our picture, then noticed that behind us was a a cute group of fluffy ducklings! We zoomed in the camera to get a closer look :)

We went to a park for our lunch, then did some climbing and sunbathing  B) The sun was so bright the pictures aren't that clear as I'm washed out by the light! The fountain looked cooling, but we didn't really want to jump in as it was rather green.

On our way back along the high street to the buses I found a horse statue. I will update again soon to show where we got the bus to next :)

Gloucester Cathedral, England - 9th August 2011

By: Gizalba

The final instalment of our mini break...

In my last update we were just about to get the bus from Cheltenham to Gloucester city centre. Here I am on the bus :) When we arrived we were glad we'd made the journey. The cathedral is so beautiful and calming. We were even allowed to take some pictures inside and it wasn't really dark like some cathedrals. We were messing about around the walls when a man went past saying 'what a good idea to take your teddies with you on a day out!' He didn't stop long enough for us to explain that we weren't any old teddies - we were teddies travelling the world! :p Ah well.


We managed to get some pictures in the centre grassed bit of the cathedral, just before the camera's battery died and signalled it was time to travel back to our host's home! We had lots of fun mum :)


Added trivia found online (My host likes visiting places where bits of the Harry Potter movies were filmed  ;))

Quote:
Gloucester Cathedral - Gloucester (Hogwarts School, Corridors)
The cathedrals magnificent cloisters were used as the the corridors of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' and were the setting for ghost scenes. The talking pictures in the Sorcerer' stone, and the overflowing bathrooms in the Chamber of Secrets were also filmed here.

Birchwood and Croft, England - 28th August 2011

By: Gizalba

On our walk back from the library where my host had been studying, we went along a bridge. There wasn't much else to see on the walk apart from the Free-range chicken farm near to my host's house. I don't think we were meant to be on the land so we zoomed in a bit.

The next photo is us inspecting the exciting looking sequin glitter glue Michel was using to make his mum's birthday banner - we helped too!

Durham, England - 28th August 2011

By: Gizalba

(This update is actually from August 25th but my host has somehow mixed the date up on my previous entry! I'm sure we saw the chickens before we went on this trip... anyway)

My host travelled to Durham for a meeting about her education, so us toys went along too. We had fun taking pictures from the back of the car :) Look at me! I can see my reflection! Aren't I an attractive penguin :D We're not sure what the landscape was that we passed, on the map it looks like we skimmed the top of the Yorkshire Dales.

We had a break to stretch our legs and met some sheep :D They wanted to talk to us I think but our host was wary about our safety.

When we reached our destination we didn't have much time to investigate as the journey is a long way to go there and back in a day. But we just about had time to walk along the river a bit and saw the cathedral in the distance. Since Edelweiss had seen it before she described to the rest of us what it looked like close up  B) We had parked in my host's college grounds which is on a hill next to the river Wear, so we had a quick look around there too.

(Sorry the pictures are a bit out of order towards the end!)

Liverpool , England - 9th September 2011

By: Gizalba

Hi Mum!

Today my host took us to a nearby city called Liverpool. We visited her favourite shop which is known as 'Quiggins'; it is full of gothic/retro/vintage/alternative clothing and objects. Sorry the indoor pictures are blurry; it is rather dimly lit and we suspected a flash may not be allowed!

The next pictures are of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, just up the hill from Quiggins. We waited for a group of tourists to move so we could get a group shot undisturbed :) From the other side of the cathedral we zoomed and could just about view the top the Liver Building, which has two liver bird statues on top. This building is situated next to the Docks and River Mersey. We will hopefully go to see that side of Liverpool another day.

Pier Head & Albert Dock, Liverpool, England - 20th September 2011

By: Gizalba

Today we went back to Liverpool!  But when we got there we realised there was someone missing...  :o Edelweiss! There was a moth whizzing around the other day and since Edel is made of wool she had crawled into her plastic bag with the cedar wood for safety. When my host scooped us all off the shelf in a rush this morning, Edel was still in her bag on the other shelf! :( So sad. But when we got back she said she'd had a nice rest, and was happy to see our photos 


It was a day of typical English whether; dull sky and the constant threat of rain. We made our way past St George's Hall (the one with all the collumns) and through St John's gardens. These are part of the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City UNESCO world heritage site (gosh what a mouth full!), along with Pier Head and Albert Dock which we are making our way towards.


We reached Pier Head where the Royal Liver Building is. This is the main landmark in Liverpool and according to legend if the birds on top fly away, the city will no longer exist :p This is the building that I saw in the distance the other day when we visited the cathedral.


We wandered along a bit more to reach Albert Dock where The Beatles music band museum is, and spotted some Superlambanana decendants :cyclops: The original one was much bigger and bright yellow, as you would imagine a bannana would be ;) It was created for Liverpool due to its history of bananas and lambs being common cargo at the docks, and also to make a point about the dangers of genetic engineering. In 2008 125 small replicas were made, with lots of different designs and scattered throughout the city. The superlambananas you can see me with are part of a collection of 8 new ones which arrived in 2010.

Croft, Warrington, England - 30th September 2011

By: Gizalba

Hi Mum!

The other week BineHH arrived and with her she brought a lovely postcard with drawings of us TVs on :D I was so pleased that I featured! Can you see me at the top of the card with my hat? B)

The next photos I am also really excited about as they are cards with The Duchess of Cambridge on! WOO :D But my host doesn't understand why she's a Duchess and not a princess... :stare:

Do you like the cards mum? I couldn't decide which was my favourite, but I wondered if I could post one to you if you tell my host which your favourite is? I got a bit obsessed and took individual photos of each of them :p

Cheadle and Winwick, England - 12th October 2011

By: Gizalba

Helloo :)

The first pic below is of a nice island-type thing with ducks and geese and swans on, in the middle of a business park at sunset. Usually business parks are horrible to look at, but we thought using the water to attract natural wildlife was a good planning idea. This was in Cheadle, Manchester.

The second pictures are of a church in the next village along from my host's home village. It was the end of a lovely hot day which felt like summer. The weather was quite strange for the beginning of October, but we weren't complaining.

Sorry there aren't many pictures as on one day the camera battery died, and on the other we were in a rush, but I hope you like the few we did take.

Love Pengy.
