Elma Family Kitty Pip

According to Kitty, Elma and Pip

01/01/2015

Last year I made a little record of the year gone by and the year to come according to our girls. I’m pleased to say that we made it to Sainsbury’s (Kitty’s destination of choice) not once but several times, possibly as often as once a week! She did learn to ride her rocking horse by herself though I’m afraid she didn’t get pink hair!

And so for this year I thought we’d try it again. Kitty’s is still beautifully focussed on everything she’s done in the last month, while Elma takes it a step further and, while able to give her answers in words this year, sticks mainly to what she’s done in the last ten minutes (it was pasta shapes for supper), and Pip, well Pip gurgled, giggled and smiles his way through the questions, and a cuter interviewee you’d be hard pushed to find.

So without further ado, may I present the year according to Kitty, Elma and Pip, transcribed word for word by yours truly with the small deviation of their names for obvious reasons.
