Last year when I came to Spain, I spent a long time collecting the ‘Gracias por su visita’ serviettes from restaurants and caf├ęs. This year I came across one and the memories came flooding back. I’ve been keeping an eye out for them, but have only come across two so far ­čśŽ

But at least I’ve found some!!

Thrilling, eh?



WordPress has brought it to my attention that I started this blog just over a year ago, and so I am very happy.

Thanks everyone for all of your support. You have made me a very happy cow, and I will make sure to keep this blog running because it is one of the things I really enjoy doing in my spare time.

More blogposts coming soon. I’ve recently been helping a friend of mine with revision so haven’t had much time to write on this blog, but will get back to making regular blogposts soon. Also, I will soon make another issue of the Life Of Cowie magazine, because I have received kind comments about it and I have also chosen a winner for the drawing competition. For your chance of winning and being in the next issue, send me your picture of me to


Between you and me, I am a secret agent. That means that I get the chance to do things that standard cows would not.

I am an MI High agent. Although I have not been featured in the CBBC television programme, ‘MI High’, I consider myself part of the team. I mean, if I had auditioned for the part, I’m sure I could have been accepted onto the television series.

Quite a while ago, I made myself an MI High ID card. You can download them off the internet, so I’m sure MI High agents must be more common than one would suspect if you can access ID cards this easily.

MI High

To prove to myself that I deserve to be an MI High agent, I chose to dress and act like one for a day. This involved wearing dark clothes so that I was less noticeable and dark sunglasses to protect my identity.

I went around with the intention of helping others and solving crimes, but unfortunately I didn’t come across any crimes, so couldn’t test my abilities to the full.

But I had quite a lot of fun all the same and think I’ll be an agent more often.

It’s a shame this series of MI High on CBBC has come to an end. I was just getting used to watching them again. They really are so amusing.

Agent Cowie.

In my spare time, there is nothing I like better than to surf the internet. I was pleasantly surprised when I searched, ‘toy cow‘ into the Google Image search, and whilst scrolling through images, I saw myself! ­čÖé That made me very happy.

I know that the order of the images that appear will vary on different devices, but I also went on other computers and iPods, and there I was. There was only the one picture fairly near the top, but y’know, it’s a start, and I’m actually quite proud of it.

There I am, right at the bottom of this picture (I’ve put a box around it to make it clearer).

Isn’t that thrilling!?!


Before I went away to Turkey (the day before I left) I was luckily enough to come along to see The Now Show being recorded at RADA Studios, London. It’s becoming quite a regular thing, going to BBC Radio recordings!

This Recording was for Series 39, Show 7


I was accompanied by some older people (I’m not old enough to go in on my own) and I queued by the door for quite a long time so that I was one of the first people in the room and could therefore get a good seat. I sat right at the front.

Waiting for it to start

Look, there I am, waiting for it to start and getting all excited. ­čśÇ

Hugh Dennis and Marcus Brigstocke

I took a few pictures during the recording. The one above is of Hugh Dennis and Marcus Brigstocke.

I’m also quite proud of this picture, because my camera wasn’t focusing very well, but I think this one turned out ok.

Mitch Benn

Hugh Dennis and Steve Punt

Laura Shavin, Jon Holmes and Hugh Dennis.

Although I didn’t get any pictures with them (and I really wish I’d asked whilst I was there) I did get some autographs, which is rather cool.

As I hung around at the end whilst it was being cleared up, I was given Mitch Benn’s script by someone who was working there. Well, it wasn’t me exactly who got it, because technically it was a friend of mine, as I was too small to be noticed, but I share it with them.

I’d originally been given Marcus Brigstocke’s script, but gave it to a mate of mine who likes Marcus Brigstocke. I’m so kind. Also, someone else from our group got Hugh Dennis’ script. How lucky!

Well, I can conclude that that was a brilliant day. BRILLIANT!


People often tell me how delicious Haribos are, and I have to simply take their word for it, because I am a vegetarian and therefore cannot eat sweets containing gelatine. However, in London a few weeks ago, I found some delicious vegetarian (and some even vegan) sweets similar to Haribos, and bought them.


They are shaped like cola bottles, dinosaurs, bears and snakes. And no animals are used in the making of these sweets. How cool!?!┬á know that other places do vegetarian sweets like these, but these are so cool! I was going to take a picture of me eating them once they were outside of the bag, but I accidentally ate them all (yes, all four packets) ­čÖé

And they’re also cool because they’re organic. Oh, how I love organic products! I gave someone who likes Haribos one to try, and they said that these are really nice and just like Haribos. So I’ve come to the conclusion that if I ate meat, I’d like Haribos.

More sweets are becoming vegetarian nowadays. Even some┬áHaribos are. I’ll have to try some of them at some point. ­čśÇ

Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. I’m gonna start blogging again for a bit. I just came back from a trip to Turkey, so will do some blog posts about that at some point. I also want to write about MI High. MI High is cool.

Bye, Cowie

Now, nothing beats a good bit of Heinz tomato soup.

Heinz tomato soup

Today, I’ve decided to invite┬ámy friend over and make soup for us.


However, cooking it was quite difficult – I had to sit on the pan handle in order to stir it.

Soup for two

When it was done, I put it into bowls for me and my friend.


I’m quite pleased with my cooking skills.


And it made the perfect amount for two people



Just finished this blogpost and my soup’s still hot. Here comes my friend. I hope they like soup as much as I do.
