Week 4 of PODcast‘s new linky The Alphabet Photography Project! What to come up with for D? Dainty, daisy, dashing, dinosaurs, Daddy? There really could one be one D – our Alphabet Photography Project D is for Diggers.
From the earlier age Monkey has been fascinated with Diggers and JCB Diggers in particular. One of the first board books he received was a My 1st JCB book, he still loves that book today. The obsession grew and Joey JCB is one of his favourite characters.
I love this photo, the look on his face is the one I see every time we see a digger anywhere. When our town centre was being redeveloped he would stand for ages watching what was going on. It was a weekly trip in itself. He was so upset the day we went and the diggers had finished their work. Cherry pickers just aren’t as exciting are they?
There are a number of road works going on around this area at the moment, so yes, we’re back on Digger patrol. Don’t make the mistake of calling an excavator a digger – oh no! There is a difference.
Ironically the company I worked for before Monkey was born, supplied plastic components to all the various JCB divisions. We’ve told him that when we go to Cbeebies Land at some point, we will make a point of coming back via the JCB plant – he will be in heaven to see the factory. He has all the DVD’s, he knows what the factory looks like and how they make their diggers.
When Monkey’s not looking at the real things, or reading about diggers, he’s playing with them. Our living room is always a cross between train track heaven and a building site. I’m typing this post up after Monkey has gone to bed, I turned around and noticed this – we didn’t tidy up tonight. This made me smile, this sums Monkey up totally.
My little Monkey, my man at work, dig, dig digging all day long 🙂
