Wilbur’s Gone Wild for Wednesday

Oh no, after eating a whole box of Jelly Babies and his general excitement for going home at the weekend and his second Christmas, poor Wilbur just can’t contain himself. He’s gone totally wild, and I don’t think we are going to stop him. One minute he’s swinging off the curtain rail the next off the light… Ouch, that’s got to hurt, perhaps that’ll stop him. Wilbur preceded to swing off the light and is falling towards the floor. Phew. It’s not so bad, he landed on the bed. No harm done. It looks like I am going to have my work cut out. It’s just as well Wednesdays are quieter days for lectures! I need to stop him causing any more damage. I don’t think the hall managers would take well to the idea that Wilbur had a sugar rush if anything gets broken.


My Mischievous Marmot as the Monarch

Wilbur has now unofficially been crowned as king of my room. His brand new crown suits him beautifully. However, Mr Snuffles isn’t too sure about having a mischievous marmot in charge. Perhaps Wilbur isn’t quite ready to be a monarch just yet.

Freezing at the Fountain with my Furry Friend

My friend Wilbur and I decided to go outside and get some fresh air, although as Wilbur said, it was freezing cold out there. He didn’t want to leave my rucksack as it was just too cold, only when I offered him my hat would he even pop his head out of the bag. Then my head was cold, so we didn’t stay at the fountain long, as beautiful as it looked, illuminated in the dark sky. On the bright side the fresh air certainly did a world of good for Wilbur’s fur, just look at his glowing complexion.

Mathematically Minded Marmot

Oh, look! Wilbur has found the maths tools that I borrowed from the library! I bet he understands it more than I do, not that it would be particularly difficult. Maths is so confusing. Oh, Wilbur says he doesn’t understand it either, perhaps he’s not as mathematically Minded as I had hoped. He’s certainly not going to be explaining it to me any time soon!

Sliding down the Slippery Slide

Wilbur has never been down this slide before, he says he is really excited. Jumping in at the top he says he’ll see me at the bottom. Wheee!!! It sounds like Wilbur is enjoying sliding down the slide, I guess it must be really fast, his fur will slip so easily on the metal with hardly any friction. There he is at the bottom. So Wilbur what did you think. Wilbur says that he really enjoyed it and wants to do it again. Well, it looks like we are going to be hear some time.

Sleeping Softly

Shh, Wilbur is asleep, and when Wilbur is asleep, everyone else can sleep too, there is no need to worry about what mischief he is up to. Tiptoeing softly away I leave him to sleep. It might not last long though, the children will be here soon and I’m sure they will wake him up. He’ll be fine for now though.

Stuck, Scared and then Saved

Oh no, it looks like Wilbur has climbed to the top of the rigging and it looks as though he is stuck. Help! Help! Oh, no, he really is stuck. I can just hear his cries for help. There is only one thing for it, I am going to have to climb up to the top to get him down! Wilbur looks very scared, the suddenly as I begin to climb, he falls forward, he’s hanging on for dear life. I need to hurry up, otherwise it might be too late, he might fall the floor. Phew, I managed to get to the top and grab him, Wilbur is saved. Let’s get you down Wilbur. That was a close one.

Playing in the Play Park

Wilbur, your up bright and early, oh I see, you wanted a go on the climbing frame, so you have come before everyone else is awake! Clever thinking. It’s just a shame you made such a noise when you left the house. You woke me up. Wilbur says he is sorry. Never mind. At least you have had the opportunity to play in the play park before the children come.

Wilbur Keeping Watch

<p style='border:4px double #8d8049;padding:10px;color:#8d8049;font-family:Gabriola;font-size:25px;text-align:center;border-radius:5px;text-decoration:none;'>Wilbur is keeping an eye on the play park, he really wants a go on the climbing frame, surprise surprise. He's a bit scared of the children though, he wants to wait until they are gone. After watching and waiting for more than an hour, Wilbur has given up, he wants to get up to some proper mischief, when I suggest we just go home, Wilbur gives in. Maybe next week Wilbur!

Swinging Swiftly

Wow, your swinging very fast Wilbur! You will have to be careful not to swing too swiftly or you might fly into the air. Slow down Wilbur, slow down! Oh no, he is out of control, his marmot arms are not long enough to reach the ropes, he’s going to fall. Wilbur says he can’t slow down. Oh no, this isn’t going to be pretty. Just look at the muddy wet bark, his fur is going to get so messy! Wheee! Oh no, Wilbur is airborne. The only thing I can do is dive to try and catch him, I reach my arm out just in time to catch him. Phew!

Rodent on a Roundabout

I left Wilbur in the house, but when I came back, he was nowhere to be found. I looked high and low. Where could he be? Ah, what about the play park, last time I was there with him, he didn’t want to leave. Ah look, there he is! That rodent, lovely as he is, why has he got to be such a mischief? Haha, it looks like Wilbur is feeling a bit dizzy, round and around! Are you having fun on the roundabout Wilbur? Wilbur says he was having a great time, but that now, the roundabout just won’t stop! He says he has been here for 20 minutes and he hasn’t been able to stop. No wonder he looks a dizzy!

Trouble on the Tree

Oh dear, just as o thought that Wilbur was beginning to settle, he’s up to his old ways again. What a troublesome marmot he is. It looks like he has found something in the tree. What have you found Wilbur? Wilbur says, he hasn’t found anything, he’s just got himself a little stuck. Just as well you are at the bottom Wilbur! Any higher up and I wouldn’t have been able to get you down. He’s safe and sound now. Phew! Let’s get you home Wilbur.
