Oink, oink Chipsters! No, I haven’t gone mad or changed species. I’ve greeted you in my new friend’s language in honour of her this week.

You see chums, I made a new pal at the weekend- don’t worry though, I still love you lot all the same.

As most of you may know, Peppa Pig was in the area at the weekend and I just so happened to bump in to her. I was a bit starstruck to begin with, if I’m honest.

Peppa was visiting Thorngate Halls in Gosport and she’d whipped up quite a crowd - I wonder if any of you Chipsters were there too? I was there on a nice day out and for a picnic with my master. I had no idea that I would run in to one of the most famous farmyard animals in the country.

Peppa told me all about her latest adventures, including how she had just come back from a long nature trail with her family. They followed all kinds of different foot prints which lead to different animals.

They were supposed to have a lovely picnic like mine but Daddy Pig left it in the car. I felt so bad for her as her stomach grumbled that I snuck her a delicious jam sandwich.

I’m treating you all to another piece of artistic genius this week. Here is a lovely picture of a very colourful bear by Chipster, Ruby Warwick. Thanks Ruby!
