Bashful’s second day

As you know Bashful is staying with me until the New year so I spent today helping to make him comfortable. First of all I helped him to unpack his box


Check our the cool piggy toy!

And then I treated him, as I would any guest, to a nice wash:

When he was nice and refreshed, he and I helped mummy wrap up some of the Christmas presents. Only mummy got a bit carried away:


Luckily I realised in time and helped him to break free. Phew!

A little later in the day he went missing. I was worried! I looked everywhere for him until eventually I spotted a familiar face in the tree:


Yep Bashful had found a santa hat and got quite into the Christmas spirit (I did wonder if he’d got into the spirits too lol).


Mummy was hoping to take him into London but the weather is supposed to be pretty dire over the next few days with strong gales heading our way. If the trains are affected their trip may have to wait till after Christmas, which is a shame.

Anyway, hope you are all enjoying the run-up to Christmas. London trip or not, I’ll have more Bashful news for you tomorrow:-)

    • Misaki says:

      Thank you! Mummy appreciate the warmth you’re sending. I don’t mind the cold and rain but it’s crazy windy out there

      • fozziemum says:

        Wind is no ones friend is it Misaki..chills to the bone…and I feel for the poor Mals around here in this heat..i saw a couple the other day and I am sure they were wondering why the heat!!

  5. Bashful is so quiet isn’t he

  6. Oh what FUN you’re having with Bashful ! He escaped being wrapped up, hid in the tree and got a nice bath from you – what more could a rock ask for anyway?! At trip to London on the train would be fun BUT then again, it’s nice to spend time at home visiting too……

    Holiday Hugs, Sammy

    • Misaki says:

      This is true Sammy. sadly it’s so windy a load of trees have fallen on our train line so I think the trip to the city is going to have to wait for now, but hoping he won’t have to wait too long to be able to go

  7. Your friend Bashful is very lucky to have you as his friend…who else would be so generous and make sure he stayed so clean?

    These Bashful posts are so funny and cute! Who is he and why is he visiting from Georgia? (Is this something like Flat Stanley?)

    • PigLove says:

      🙂 Hi my name is Bacon. I’m a miniature pot bellied pig from Georgia (USA). Bashful is my pet and is a world traveler going around and visiting all of my peeps on my page who want to host him. You can check my blog out to see where he’s been before. He’s quite the little international rolling stone 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Well Bashful sure is being made welcome.

  17. Frankie and Ernie says:

    We are so glad that you rescued Bashful from the Wrapping Frenzy … He looks very cute in the Santa Hat… all tucked into the tree that way.
    We hope that the BAD WEATHER is NOT BAD… and that you DO get to London.
    Can’t wait to hear more about your fun times with Bashful.

    • Misaki says:

      Thanks guys, loads of trees have fallen on the line so not sure they’ll make it this side of christmas but hope we can show him around.

  18. Kyla says:

    I don’t suppose that it would do any good to take Bashful to a good restaurant. That’s OK-more for you.

  19. speedyrabbit says:

  22. The OP Pack says:

    We think Bashful makes a great Santa, and we are also glad that you rescued him from the gifting. That might be a little hard to explain to his family:)

    Hope the gales stay away and you have a very Merry Christmas.

  23. Stay warm and safe and please give your lovely bipeds a wag from us for Happy Holidays. 🙂

  24. Misaki I think Bashful is really going to enjoy his visit with you! He looks all happy in the tree. He has a great smile. Hope you all stay safe over there and the weather and wind stops misbehaving. We had misbehaving weather with an ice storm!
