It's been a funny old week.... After the fun of Monsal Head I didn't expect to end up in hospital two days later. It was quite exciting though in its own way.

I was a poorly bear so Himself took us to hospital.

Sucking my thumb helped while the nurses checked my heart beat.
Having my blood pressure taken was fun.
A few times the cuff pinged off (I don't think that's meant to happen). 

This isn't Herself force-feeding me.
The doctor thought I might feel better if I could blow into a syringe.
I blew till my cheeks went red, but it didn't make me feel better.

This contraption on my paw measured how much oxygen was in my blood.

I took a book to while away the time in A&E.

I had to stay in overnight.
Herself was allowed to stay with me and we snuggled up together.
I'm glad she was there.

Sometimes I felt a bit worried and sucked my thumb.
But the doctors and nurses took good care of me.

Here I am back home, feeling much better.

Hello! I'm Scamper and until recently I lived on the top shelf of a bookcase with some other furry friends. I'm a bit tatty now but Herself thinks that adds to my cuteness factor. Whatever, it's not about looks, it's about living.

So, I've started going out and about again - mostly in Herself's handbag - and have decided to keep a picture blog of my adventures. Here's the first of what I hope will be many instalments.

Today we visited Monsal Head in the Peak District.

Headstone Viaduct

We found this gorgeous waterfall underneath the viaduct

Sunny day at the viaduct

It was dark in Headstone Tunnel but I'm brave as well as cute so we were all fine
Admiring the view with some friends: Chocolate, Creamy and Snowy

I was ready for this banana and toffee milkshake after all that walking

The horses took a fancy to this chilli jam - suppose it makes a change from grass

Tucking into a Sunday roast was the perfect ending to a lovely day
