My Dollydoodle's birthday presents.

Heralding a new Dollydoodle prototype. Judith has so very kindly given me this 'oh-so-smart-and-trendy' Gregor Summer outfit and the colouring so suits Matt, my 1968 Gregor Sports lad, that Fritz for once didn't even get a look in to claiming it first. A million thanks Judith from both me and my Gregors who just adore your leisure wear and who can never seem to get enough of it.

I see that you haven't found your special jam-jar to put your tadpoles in yet? Wasn't it with your fishing net? Give me a minute or two and I'll come and help you find it.

As well as Matt's fantastic outfit Judith also included this delightful little set especially for Little Stevie, my Trendon birthday baby from Steve. Doesn't he look just adorable in it? Yet more thanks Judith heading your way.

Can I ask you why have you got THREE Lindt bunnies? Oh, one is for Quirky and the other for Scary as they are now your best friends.

You're a very kind and thoughtful little boy, obviously taking after Steve.

Yet more birthday gifts.

A super little Sasha sized tote bag from Cathy Buckler Mellor bought back for us from her visit to San Francisco and seen here with my favourite waif wigged doll. Many, many thanks Cathy for thinking of us.

Oh dear Scary has got hold of it now. Can you see me as I can't see you. Yes, Scary we can see you but you can't see us because you have blind folded yourself by putting it over your head.

Now what are you doing? Are you actually standing in the bag? Practising for your next school sack race did you say? Just be careful that you don't spoil it for the girls.

A delightful little Easter gift was found inside the tote bag. Here we see Bea playing with it, making the Easter Ballerina Bunny dance. Thanks again Cathy.

A great selection of gifts from Shelly. My Sashas will just love the little storage boxes to store their 'bits and bobs.' Super idea of the fencing for props for my blog photos. Definitely need the pen and notelets as I have so many 'thank-you' letters to write. Three BIG thank-you's. You always think of such unusual presents.

My 1969 Pink Party girl gets to pose first with the new fencing. She has even found the watering can to water the flowers in the plant pot. 'Mary, Mary, how does your garden grow?'

Now Quirky remember that you have been told that you are not to crawl beyond the fencing boundary.

Bea getting on the scene too. Love your windmill.
