Cheeky Monkey!

Bonjour! Firstly apologies for the abrupt ending of the last. Denni started it, I finished it and we were in a rush. Nevermind, I will make up for it with warm ending on this one.

Well, Anthony the dedicated and extremely helpful french VW mechanic was true to his word. He fixed Irene on time, as promised, for a bargain price. That was Tuesday so we left Lake Anncey (boo!) for Chamonix (yey!) Wednesday. We decided to give Irene a little rest and treat ourselves to a luxury wooden chalet at a campsite 10 mins walk from Chamonix town centre. The view from our balcony is Mont Blanc! I am typing this from there at the moment with a glass of Rosé. It is raining but the view is still amazing.

Daisy is a cheeky chunky monkey. She has started slapping her hand in the bath water quite vigourously, giving us all a shower and totally splashing herself but she doesnt care. She loves fruit, especially when she can eat it whole and use her two little teeth to scrape bits off. Today at lunch time she managed a grated cheese sarnie! It did take a while for her to chew though. She has been on top form the last few days and has been really good fun. Her new thing is posing and smiling for the camera (must get that from her Papa!).

Daisy can now easily sit up by herself and likes to stand when you hold her. She watches us brush our teeth and copies (Denni's colleagues, the fang farriers would be proud!). She has become very vocal and expressive and we have found ourselves being plonkers in public to make her laugh. Who cares, worth it every time!

So we are here for four days, then off to Lake Como in Italy on Sunday. Thanks for reading and for the comments. We are having the time of our lives but miss you all heaps! Back on soon for an update.

Lots of love from Denni, Anna, Daisy and Irene xxxx
