Hope you're well!
How are those Christmas preparations coming along? It's suddenly here and I have so much to do! A white Christmas is looking possible for many of us too.
I was listening to the radio a couple of days ago and a listener phoned through who'd been studying various weather patterns and is forecasting a really cold January! Time will tell – but get the thermals ready, just in case!!
I promised I'd introduce you to two very special family members, Rosy (on the pale blue blanket above) and Popcorn our adorable hamsters – they really are out of this world. As a child I grew up in a home which sometimes felt a little like a zoo.
At one point, living under one roof, we had Kiki the parrot, Joey the budgie, Molly the English Setter, Fred and George the fish, Hilda the Hamster and two rescue cats from Cats Protection!
I can honestly say we have as much affection for our two hamsters as we had for our pet dogs and cats as children. They are tiny little balls of fluff and are wonderful. We have to keep them apart as they need to live alone. They are around 8 months old now and their personalities are so different.
Rosy loves attention, as soon as you enter the room she scrambles down her tube and waits by her door to be taken out. She is mischievous, loves to explore and adores her food. Popcorn on the other hand is so chilled. He too loves to come out to play and after running around on your lap will settle down for a snooze. He likes to relax and take things easy and will sit quietly taking in his surroundings!
Their homes are lavish! They are spoilt rotten and for Christmas they're having an extension added! So the 2 storey hamster residence will become 3 storey!
Stay warm and I'll see you soon.
