Cyril The Squirrel


Lou bought Cyril the Squirrel for my sister  Esther just before she died. He kept her company in the hospice until the end and then he came back to live with us.


We take it in turns to hide him around the ground floor of our house.  Most of the time he's super easy to spot.


He seems to get  himself into some terrible fixes.  Oh Cyril.  What are you doing there!



We giggle when we find him.  It's silly.   Esther would have liked that.

  1. Do you ever get a sudden urge to check your eyesight ?

  2. Cyril rocks. He would beat down that elf on the shelf in a heart beat. Is the eyesight box test a repurposed lamp. Cool object either way

    1. Yes - it's my most amazing recycling find ever. It was destined for the skip at the hospital where I work so I asked permission to snaffle it. xx

  3. How totally cute! What a lovely way to remember Esther every day too! You do think of great activities to do with Lou. JanF

    1. I try. At the moment Cyril has been hidden and I can't find him. It's unheard of! He's normally spotable within about twenty seconds! xx
