Across The Big Water

First of all, on behalf of my slave, I apologise for the drought of postings to this blog.  She kept finding some excuse not to take my dictation - trying to find work, that kind of thing, etc.  So sorry.

Back to the post... ok.. it was 'leap day' - 29th of Feb, and slave and all of us woke up in this hotel in London, having had a nice sleep under the bed.  She then starting moving stuff around, huffing and puffing.  Then she grabbed each one of us in turn, took us out of the room, down the electric box, outside back into our monogrammed boxes.  I managed to evade her most deftly, so I was the last one loaded into the car.  We then set off again.  This time it wasn't a very long journey.  We went to a big warehouse type area and sat around waiting for 10am, as the people in charge at something called Cargo wouldn't take us before then.  Can't understand why they would not be eager to have our company as long as possible.

Here we are in our boxes:

So slave left us at this place, where we were loaded on to pallets and forklifted away.  Slave was blowing kisses and telling us to be good.  I don't know what she thought we could get up to in such small areas.  We were then loaded onto the big metal PLANE.  Luckily our viewing widows were set up so we could see each other.  Slave gave us lots of food, water and veggies and hay, so we assumed we might be in there for a while.

There was some vibration and big noises and stuff, but then it was just sort of like we were floating, and we all managed to doze off.  A while later, there was more big noise, followed by a big BUMP.  Some people took us into another warehouse.  It was much colder.  Lots of people peered in at us.  Finally I could hear slave's voice in the distance, but the other human was saying that customs was still waiting to clear us (the very thought of us not being cleared!!) so she couldn't come and say hi.  After a further bit of waiting around, and grandpa slave slipping the other person $50, they let slave and grand slaves come and get us.  Slave was crying when she saw us, she said it was cause she was so happy that we were ok.  What's the big deal?  They took us out into the cold and loaded us into two cars.  A bit more driving, and then we were loaded into our new temporary home.  As we were still all getting on together, slave put us all in together.  Wasn't too impressed with the layout, but slave said it was just temporary while she set up our deluxe new accommodation.

We were glad to be out of the boxes at least, and could stretch out.
