Today has been the most exciting day ever, we’ve had a fan letter and a present. How BRILLIANT is that?
When I arrived home, after nipping to the SPAR, I found a parcel on the mat addressed to “Monkey” - I didn’t recognise the writing and on the back all it said was “Sender - Jan the Fan”
Darrell and I were sooooooooo excited!
I opened it up very carefully, and inside was a letter and a small parcel that rattled when Darrell shook it.
We read the letter first, it was from a “fan” called Jan, who lives in Newcastle Upon Tyne (which is our very favourite accent!).
She says she is going to write to Paul O’Grady about us, how exciting – we love Paul O’Grady!!!! We might hear our names on the radio, how BRILLIANT would that be?
Then, we opened up the little present. Jan The Fan said that we might need them to suck if we go on a long journey, or when we sleep in our tent in the garden.
Inside the parcel was a tiny tin of monkey mints, with pictures of monkeys on the lid. We were both overwhelmed by the kindness and we both welled up a little bit.
Thank you Jan – we will treasure your letter and gift forever, you have made two monkeys very very happy XXXX
