POOR BABY ITCHY!
She took at 150ft tumble (in robo-feet) last night. And lay on her side utterly immobile. Seriously I thought she was dead. Thankfully she was merely "winded". And quickly sprang back to life - with a pronounced limp. I honestly thought she had broken a "twig" else ruptured something internally. Thankfully all was well and the limp's gone now. The only thing injured was her robbie-pinginess - for about half an hour. She hid in a toilet tube and washed her ears and sulked.
I have to say despite her peanut-eating she's still my thinnest robby. She DID expand in size - but, like a Eurostar train with extra carriages, she just added the length to her bum.
Bashful is my prettiest robbie. She is perfectly proportioned with a "charming" face. She bats her eyelashes at me - then bites me out of "curiosity" and because she's so cute I forgive her every time...
Spherical, as the name implies, looks heavily pregnant and being quite possibly a good year older than the other two is age-wearied and cynical (she gazes at me balefully sometimes as if to say "if you think I'm gonna go nuts for half a peanut and a wilting broccoli sprig you gotta nother thing comin' sweetheart.") But she is entertaining. One minute she ignores my interfering hands (refilling water bottle, dumping wild birdseed down etc); the next she spots me out the corner of an eye and plays scaredy hammy; spluttering about like a furball of fire and panicking the other two, who go pinging up and down equally pointlessly as if a funnel web spider were in their midst... the fat swine! Because she's so heavy and seems to run the exercise wheel the most enthusiastically (she's got a real exercise fixation) if either of the other two dare venture on, the chances are they'll end up clinging for dear life to the wire spokes, endlessly looping the loop as Spherical thunders tubbily onwards, desperate to work off her extra wooly robo-weight...
Thank God little Itchy is fine!

Have a look at these American "fall" photos... the scarlet maple leaves... THAT is why I say American autumn is so much more intensely colourful than its British counterpart....

Releasing the inner blinger in me - I have only just - and belatedly - realised that having grandchildren gives me a good excuse to release my inner blinger. So ... we took a trip to Homebase...
