The Angry Pirate

Yesterday we were waiting in a queue to pay for lunch a a well know blue and yellow furniture store when a lady pushed past my son to get a glass. On her way back to the till point she stood in front of my son, staring at him and waiting for him to move. I had to pull him out of her way.

She didn't even say 'Excuse me' maybe she thought children don't deserve the courtesy of manners.

Last night my boy who has just turned 7 wrote a story, here it is:

The Red Pirate was a deadly curse.
He is very mean and nasty.
He has red eyes and terrible scars.

Once a upon a time there was a pirate. He was very fierce and angry. He was a ghost because he is dead.
One day he was walking on a street and then he saw a cafe. He walked in, budged through the line and got his lunch and the woman said 'Be happy and have good manners'.

It changed his life into a new dimension.

He was very happy now and guess what? He even said 'thank you'.
But he just felt happy.

By Taylor Age 7.

Made me smile!

8 Strangers Saved My Life

Our beautiful girl is 1 today.

This time last year I was lying in Intensive Care after complications from her delivery.

8 Strangers saved my life - with some help from very talented surgeons and NHS staff who I had the chance to thank later.

What did the Strangers do? They each donated a pint of their blood, so simple.

A huge thank you to all who donate blood, and if you don't already, please do.

You will be saving a life - what a hero!

My Baboo Highland Coo reaches New Zealand

Here he is, My Baboo Highland Coo has made it safely to New Zealand. His host is Mandi and she sent this message:

'Hi Lynne

Highland Coo is having a fab holiday! Lazing by the pool (he has brought the sunshine with him!), watching 3500 rubber ducks in a charity river race! Its all go here!

Here he is on his balcony with a view of Young Nick's Head at Gisborne. Young Nick's Head was one of the first sightings of land when New Zealand was discovered by Captain James Cook in 1769.

Still trying to sort out where he is going next so he might stay here for another few days!

Mandi x'

Certainly looks like he is enjoying himself!

He has just traveled 11,237 miles as the crow flies - wonder where he will get to next!

Thanks Mandi for making his stay so enjoyable.

Stay tuned for more World Adventures of My Baboo Highland Coo....

The World Adventures of My Baboo Highland Coo - Part 1

The big day has finally arived. I've had my medical, my bags are packed, my passport is at the ready and I'm all set to go on my World Adventure.

My first destination will be....New Zeland! It's going to be a long journey but I have first class seat reservations with plenty of in-flight entertainment so it should be a comfortable trip. Just as long as the cabin crew have plenty of fresh grass for me to eat I will be quite happy.

I can't wait to see where I will end up. You can follow my adventures on Facebook (search for My Baboo) , Twitter (search for Lynnebaboo) and via the My Baboo blog.

Only one thing to do is to say Farewell to Balfron and Hello New Zeland - here I come!

The Travelling Adventures of the My Baboo Highland Coo

Want to take part in the Travel Adventures of the My Baboo Highland Coo? I'm looking for my first destination....

I noted the other day that I love sending My Baboo goodies all over the world. This got me thinking - to celebrate the launch of the My Baboo Highland Coo why not pack it off on its travels round the world?

The deal:- I will pick someone far flung from my list of Followers and post the Highland Coo to them. In return I would love a picture of the Coo at his new travel destination which I will post on FB. The new owner then has to send it on to someone in a far away land, and so on till the wee coo has hopefully travelled the world. (he is very light so cheap to post!)

In return I will send a little My Baboo goodie to all who send the Coo on his journey.

What do you think?
