I hope your holiday is going well. I'm still with Miss Ash in Toulouse and I'm enjoying the sunny weather in the daytime, but it's a bit frosty for my night-time digging! Some people think that moles hibernate (have a long sleep) in the winter but it's not true so I'm as busy as usual.
I visited the Christmas market in Toulouse last week and was fascinated by all the delicious smells. Miss Ash took Finn, my cousin, and me on the merry-go-round in Place Wilson. We loved it! I rode on a horse that went up and down and Finn sat on a chair that spun around.
Yesterday we all went for a big long walk along the river Garonne. It was very muddy but sunny and quiet. We did see some other people though; some mud-coated cyclists, a girl riding a horse (a real one not a merry-go-round one) and two big boys playing on a quad bike. When we got home we watched ‘The Borrowers’ and played a board game called Blockus. Have you been playing any board games?
Finn goes home tomorrow and I’ll really miss him. Molly and Edna left yesterday. During her stay I asked Edna about traditional clothes from Japan and she showed me this picture.
It is called a kimono. Kimonos used to be worn by men, women and children but now they are mainly worn by women on special occasions. Would you like to wear a kimono?I hope you have been having a good time with your family.
