We saw some of the sights of Belfast after work last night. We saw the Belfast Wheel next to the impressive Belfast City Hall. It was late when we left work so there wasn't much time for sight seeing as we were hungry and needed to get some dinner.We went to Cafe Vaudeville for dinner and drinks. Cafe Vaudeville is Paul's favourite place to eat in Belfast, I am glad he took me there so I could taste the yummy food he is always telling Zoë and I about.

Paul and I are staying at a Premier Inn in Belfast. We have a lovely big room, a massive bed, a TV, and a desk.
This is my bed.
The bed is very comfortable and I slept very well last night.
I have just come back from breakfast, I only had juice this morning, I wasn't very hungry after my big dinner last night.

This is Mr Brown, he is my oldest friend. Like me his is only small. It is nice to have a friend that is my own size. Mr Brown is made from felt, not knitted like me.
Mr Brown likes staying at home drinking tea and eating cake so he doesn't usually join me on my adventures. This Saturday I went to visit Mr Brown in his new house. He has only just moved in, he hasn't had time to decorate yet or unpack his stuff. We were still able to eat cake though!

This is me at James May's plasticine garden that is currently at Sudbury Hall. I would have liked to walk around the garden, but it was not allowed, I am sure no one would have noticed me and I am too small to do much damage to it.
I enjoyed seeing the Ironbridge, the whole area is very pretty and so green. However, I suffered a potentially serious accident just after this photo was taken. I was standing on some railings having another photo taken when I fell off, it was a drop of about 5-6 metres, that is a long was for someone of my size. Luckily the railings were above a footpath and not the ones on the bridge or I would have been washed away by the River Severn. Zoë was very worried about me and had to run down the road and back along the footpath to find me. Luckily I wasn't hurt, being knitted has its advantages.
While I was in Ironbridge I went to visit the Merrythought teddy bear shop and museum, I enjoyed seeing all the bears, they looked very friendly. I had my photo taken with this very large bear, you can just see me sitting on his shoulder, but I do blend in quite well.
Zoë felt so bad about my terrible accident earlier in the day that they took me out to dinner. We went to the OK Diner in Cannock. I had a beanburger with cheese and mushroom, coleslaw, and curly fries. To drink I had a big milkshake and for pudding pancakes and syrup. I let Zoë share with me as there was quite a lot of food.
I haven't been anywhere since my holiday and have been spending my time setting up this blog. I hope you have enjoyed hearing about my holiday. This weekend I am going to see my friend Mr Brown, so I will introduce him to you in my next post.

One of my most impressive achievements occurred earlier this year. I went all the way to the top of the Aiguille du Midi, during our holiday to Chamonix in the French Alps. Zoë was very scared of being on the top of a mountain, but I loved it. I even had a hot chocolate while I was up there!
