Bibi chez Miss Whittaker


Bibi came home to stay with me this weekend, Davy had told her all about Eva and she was really excited about meeting her.
Eva was also pleased to meet Bibi, she loves making new friends. I did have to tell Eva that Bibi lives at IST with the Year 4 children, just in case she decided that she wanted to keep her! She already has a duck, hedgehog, and a sheep with angel wings which all have squeaky bellies, but she does not have a monkey. 

They really enjoyed snuggling up in front of the fire together on Friday night.

We had a dinner party on Saturday night. Bibi decided that she wanted to share my vegetarian meal. Monkeys do generally have a diet of fruit and they love insects! But there were no insects being served at our dinner party, so Bibi shared my cheese stuffed polenta and loved it. The Year 4 monkeys do love chocolate though!

Later on we went into the games room to play pool. Bibi had never played pool so she had a lot of fun learning and joining in.
                                    
On Sunday we decided to take Bibi to our local pig farm, it’s one of Eva’s favourite places to walk.  Eva’s parents were working farm dogs from the Pyrénéés-Atlantiques; they rounded up cattle (Bovine). She was born in a muddy barn, so she feels very at home outside in the fields and couldn’t wait to show Bibi the pigs.
Eva loves getting really muddy.
I think Bibi likes the pigs!

Bibi is now tucked up in bed fast asleep, it was a long sunday walk and a late night on Saturday! So she needs her beauty sleep. She’s looking forward to getting back to school tomorrow to tell the other monkeys all about her week end.
Bonne nuit Bibi.

    2. Yes Pablo, Bibi made pig friends. Three of the pigs had escaped from the field (they always do that!) They came really close to us. They are very curious animals and if you keep still, as Bibi, Eva and I did, then they will come close, raising their piggy snouts and sniffing the air!
