So, spring has most definitely sprung these last couple of weeks and I LOVE IT!! Saying that, I love the arrival of any season – always a new beginning to be had although spring definitely seems to have that in its step!
So despite the loss of one hour, I seem to have gained a few other things – firstly a cook's essentials knife appeared out of nowhere (baffled), then I finally gave in to the Xbox’s charm and ordered one (seeing as it was on 'Super Bargain Price', I thought it would be rude not to!)
So you can now find me leaping up and down with arms flailing in the air pretending I’m riding a raft on a regular basis!!
But even MORE excitingly, we have two new additions to our menagerie! One Syrian hamster (Harry) and one Chinese dwarf hamster (Cookie). Separate cages, separate rooms, separate parents (being my two children!!)
Other things spring has brought? Well, gladly, thanks to chilli powder to keep the squirrels away, my daffs have exploded beautifully! I managed to plant them two days before the frost came in December and they really are looking amazing …for once in my life something has worked in the garden!!
Oh, and my bunny! Do you remember the arrival of Fifi Buffy Banana Trixabelle last year? (the hamster names suddenly sound rather boring in comparison, we’ll have to work on that!!) Well, now the nights are warmer, I moved her back out to the outside hutch and run, and she escaped!!
Yes panic all round! Heaven forbid I should lose her to the wilderness but guess where she was? The utility room! Yep, she was homesick for inside and made her way back – so I’ve given in and told her she can stay inside for a little longer. The lovely thing is I open the back door and she hops outside, has a little mooch around the garden and then comes back in again!! Crazy but true! When everyone on my Facebook page told me a rabbit could be house trained, I really didn’t think it would go this far!!
Uh oh, the cat is dribbling on me, they say it’s a sign of contentment and I appreciate the sentiment, but not the damp patch on my leg!
Enjoy the spring xxx
