Sport, sport, marvellous sport, permits a giraffe some sobriety ..

I have no interest in sport whatsoever. Oh, but how grateful I am to benefit from a sibling-squabble-free environment, thanks to marvellous sport!

Nukkle has taken his nephew and Necky Becky to the football match in Raffsburgh. Littl' Nicky is at the Gleeful & Greedy Restaurant with his auntie and uncle, where they are holding their annual 'Bounciest Custard' competition.



Nexi and her boyfriend Neko have gone ice skating.


What a haven of peace and tranquillity for Maureen and me! Maureen is at her beautiful carved desk by the window, writing with her antique quill pen. I am at the kitchen table typing on my necktop.


We've had a wonderful family time over the last few days, but isn't it lovely to get a bit of peace!

Edward and I appreciated your visit and your kind comments. Giraffes are wonderful creatures, and I know I shall enjoy visiting here!

Thank you, you are both always warmly welcome. I'm looking forward to visiting The House of Edward again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have an entertaining and colorful one here! What great illustrations! Your profile does not say where you are located-but not in snowland I would guess by your comments. Our snowthrower (lawnmower looking thing) is almost necessary here, although they go better with a mechanical mind to keep them in line.

Thank you Leenie. Life here is entertaining and colourful too!

We don't get enough snow to merit a snowthrower, but it does look fun.

Ahhh. Yes, I love my family dearly, but the peace I'm experiencing today is so very nice.

It is an 'ahhh' feeling, isn't it, Willow; and one can hear cosy little sounds like the fireside clock ticking.

your blog is completely original (rare!). Have you always been a giraffe?

Hi Raph,

More beautiful images, especially Nexi and her beau in the snow!

We were quiet over Christmas but now have friends staying for New Year - so the fun and chatter is welcome.

Pity I have to work today!!

Thank you marigirl!

I was going to have a quick look at your blog, but have been so entranced by your beautiful photos and writing that my porridge has gone cold!

Yes, I was created as a giraffe ...

Hi Derrick and thank you. Nexi is really into looking beautiful!

Hope you and your guests have a great New Year. We're all preparing for our Necky Knoll New Year's fancy dress party.
