The MEFFS Royal Family decided to have a day out yesterday as it was a Bank Holiday and, if nothing else, it would get Chimpton out of bed for the day. I picked the Queen up bright and early and off we set to collect Chimpton and Eddie for our little day out. First stop was Sainsbury’s to stock up on Chimpton’s Non-Diary Creamers and then it was off to the Cinema to watch Bridge To Terabithia which was totally absorbing. Chimpton and Eddie really enjoyed the film even during the scary bits.

At the start line.

So Sunday finally arrived and after dropping the car off at the finish line and getting a lift back with Chimpton driving (a whole story in it’s self) we set off to pick up the Queen. Except the Queen had locked her wheelchair away and no one had the key. Well to cut a long story short three hours later (ok, slight exaggeration) we finally made it to the start line.

Dad in training — swallows a raw egg!

So this weekend we are doing something a little challenging, infact ALOT challenging, as a Royal Family we are taking part in the Wirral Coastal Walk, a fifteen mile (yes I did just say FIFTEEN MILE) trek around our lovely coastal area to raise money for charity. The Queen not being able to walk very far will be being pushed by her servant and on the odd occasion me, all our money is going to the HIV charity I do voluntary work with to raise awareness in and around the Merseyside area.

Yesterday I was doing some voluntary work at an alternative therapies session I was there raising money for a project for Malawi, we are sending over some of our volunteers and paid staff to see the difference in their HIV projects and ours in Merseyside. We will then bring some of their staff over here to show them our project and how things differ in other countries. I tend to witter so what I really came here for was that there was a lady their yesterday a white witch reading tarots and the lady I was on the stall with was pacing up and down waiting to see her and hand over her £10, I wasn’t that keen, but how weird but this morning I go doing my blog hagging on others blogs when I see that someone has a test you can take to see which card you are.

Well yesterday I had a little accident, I trapped my finger and got myself a really nice bruise, now the Queen was with me and bored and decided that she would text servant Dave telling him that my finger was literally falling off so he would come round and entertain her. Dad is that daft he believed her little tale and speedily raced round to check what I had done, this left the Queen smiling especially when Dad sat down and they started messing around.

Ecrins National Park in the French Alpes.

we were recently asked a question by Kris concerning the history of the Renault Bear I thought I would enlighten everyone with what I know. The Renault Bear originally comes from France. An animal of quiet charm is the small French cream coloured Bear. They have long been a symbol of the imposing wilderness of the French Alps. As noted conservationist and founder of the New York Zoological Society, William T. Hornaday, said in 1913, “The French Alps without The Renault Bear upon it is only half a mountain – commonplace and tame.”

The Bear's enclosure is getting a little over-crowded.

The MEFFS crusade to save the endangered Renault Bear has gained pace with another two bears arriving this week in the shape of Erasmus and Ebay. Both boys have settled in nicely with the gang but it is getting a little over-crowded in their enclosure (or is that on their chair). Erasmus has a certain quiet charm and is originally from Holland while eBay arrived with little history and so we decided to name him Ebay after the site we purchased him from.
