Cooking with Crystal Babblebrook

Hello everyone! Today’s post comes to you from the kitchen where a host of chefs (Olivia, her brother, her mum and Crystal Babblebrook) are about to bake a wonderful loaf of banana bread.

Let’s see how things are getting on at Crystal’s table….

Titanic Sylvanian style: Part 2

Suddenly, the ropes holding the lifeboat broke. Screaming women and children fell into the ocean.

Eliza could feel her whole body going numb with the cold. She was drifting away…

The next thing she knew, she was on the deck of another ship. There were people everywhere. A maid in a black and white uniform rushed over to her.

“It’s okay, you’re safe now. You were picked out of the ocean after the Titanic went down – you’re very lucky to be alive! This is the Carpathia.” the maid explained. She gave Eliza a mug full of warmth and told her to drink.

The Carpathia. This seemed like a safe ship. She had barely any memories from those last few moments aboard the Titianic. Now she was resting at the bottom of the ocean, she had proved to everyone that she was sinkable.

Where was the rest of her family now?

 

When I told you that part 2 was coming soon, I meant it! Hope you enjoyed the two part story.

RIP Titanic victims.

Titanic Sylvanian Style: Part 1

Cast:

Judy Babblebrook as Eliza

Richard Babblebrook as Edward

 

“Mother, may Edward and I go for a stroll on the promenade deck?” Eliza asked her mother

“But it’s the middle of the night!” her mother replied.

“I know, but we would like a bit of fresh air. This cabin is awfully stuffy!”

“Oh, alright then. As long as you keep yourselves safe, dears.”

Eliza rushed into the bedroom to tell Edward.

“Mother said we can go for a walk.” She opened her wardrobe and grabbed her thick coat. She pulled it over her shoulders and glanced through the porthole in their cabin. It looked chilly tonight…

Once they were up on deck, they found that it was surprisingly busy. There were children rushing around playing games of tag, and elderly couples strolling along. Eliza was right, it was terribly cold outside but it was also very refresing.

“Well, she is such a magnificent ship, everyone will likely be making the most of every second aboard. It’s not every day that you are sailing on the largest and grandest ship in the world!” Edward told Eliza.

Suddenly, there was a huge thud, and the ship jerked. Edward and Eliza, along with everyone else on the deck was looking around for the cause of it. They were shocked when a huge iceberg came into view. Everybody was rooted to the spot.

“What was that? Why have the engines stpped?” Eliza asked clinging to Richard’s arm.

“Don’t fret. She’s unsinkable.” Edward said in a calm voice.

However, in the moments that followed, the captain and the ship’s designer rushed past looking rather distressed.

“Although, we should probably stay here for a little while to see what’s going on. Just in case.” Edward instructed gently.

Eliza stared out to sea. Neither of the siblings spoke for the next few minutes. They jumped when a door behind them burst open, and a crew member rushed  out. He was carrying life jackets and there was a look of urgency on his face. He thrust a life jackets into Edward and Eliza’s arms.

“Put these on.”

He then ran over to the lifeboats and turned round to address the passengers that were near.

“The captain has given the order for everyone to abandon ship. Nothing to worry about, but I will only need women and children right now.”

Edward and Eliza exchanged worried looks

They knew that this was something to worry about.

“What about mother and the rest of them?” Eliza gabbled.

“Sssh. Don’t worry, you get into a boat and I’ll go and fetch them.” They hugged each other one last time. Then Edward ran away down the deck towards the first class stairs.

Eliza had no choice but to get into a lifeboat.

As the lifeboat was being lowered, it began to tilt dangerously….

 

Hope you liked it! Part 2 coming really soon…

Figure count

Hello everyone! I have recently gathered all of my Sylvanian figures together and counted them. Here they all are:

IMG_00000453

I currently have 39 figures in total. I might get some more soon, so that number will definitely rise. I would quite like a new family, maybe the border collie family to go with the twin babies.

And my favourite? Well, it would be very difficult for me to pick a favourite, but I would probably say Frances Robinson the red panda. 🙂 She has come on lots of adventures and trips with me, usually in my pocket or my bag.

Frances just loves her little red dress - so warm and cosy, especially in winter!

That’s all for now, friends….

Richard’s thoughts on school…

Hello everyone! Today was my first day back at school after Christmas. 😦 I found it REALLY hard to get out of bed this morning. To cheer myself up, I asked Richard Babblebrook what he loves about school….

IMG_00000448

What is your favourite subject at school?

Well, my favourite subject would have to be biology. I just love learning about nature, there are so many cool plants and animals in our world!

What is your least favourite subject?

My least favourite subject is definitely Maths. All those sums are just to much for my brain! I usually get my sister Judy to help me with the tricky stuff.

What career do you want to do when you leave school?

When I leave school, I want to become a tree surgeon. I love to be alone in the forests, where the only sound is the beautiful singing of the birds…

Overall, do you like school?

Yes, I do. I love to meet new people and learn new things, and I am studying hard to achieve my dream!

Thanks to Richard for telling us how he feels about school. post your own answers to these questions in the comments. That’s all for now, friends….

Byeeeeeee!
