Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails

The Cheetahs and the Jellybean Sleeping Bag


It’s been a busy weekend for the Cheetah keeper (and the rest of us!).  Yesterday we went off to review the Family Football Day at Ipswich Town FC for Netmums – now there’s something I never thought I’d be typing 3 months ago.  I’m going to write about that tomorrow once I’ve sorted the photos out.

The Cheetahs didn’t want to come to the big football match – they went and played their own game on their football pitch.  I can understand they were a bit apprehensive about the big pitch and lots of people so good for them to sticking to their guns and not feeling obliged to come.

Today they were up and zinging – all of them, Cheetahs, Banana People and Dinos were all up and ready for trampolining.  Apparently they had a fantastic time on the bouncy castle (first time they’ve been on it with their keeper – first time their keeper has been on it on his own) and running around as usual.  He told me this evening that they’d been asleep all day and was “only kidding” they’d been on the bouncy castle – now I’m confused.


These are my Jelly Belly jelly beans, and you ...

After the excitement of the fireworks and the football we’ve all been a tad tired today and it came about that we all needed to get our sleeping bags out and snuggle up together.  The Cheetahs have taken a shine to their keeper’s sleeping bag with jellybeans on it – because they do like to have jellybeans for breakfast, jellybeans for lunch and jellybeans for tea.  Their favourite ones are the white ones and, just so you know, they clean their teeth after every jellybean meal.


When the lovely Aisha (Eid Mubarak to you my dear!) on expatlogue awarded me the Liebster blog award she happened to mention to the world that I like to bake.  So, when at 4.30pm I’m struggling to stay awake and thinking a quiet evening is in order I remember that I have to send in goodies for the school Eid parties (our school celebrates everything, it’s fantastic!) tomorrow, what do I do?  Make these.


You’d do the same.  Wouldn’t you?

  1. God I love your blog! So glad I discovered it – it is one of a kind!
    Now ITFC is very close to Actually Daddy’s heart, was the scene of most of our courtship, and was the Bug’s very first football match a few weeks ago, so I will look forward to reading all about it!

  2. I have to confess I have a secret love of jellybeans too! Thankyou for the good wishes Jenny and Well Done to G for being brave on the bouncy castle 😉

Thank you for your comments! The Cheetahs and I really appreciate them.
