Introducing...

Introducing to you our new family members. Can you see them? They are rather small at the moment. This is Charlie and LolaOur little piggies arrived on Saturday. They are just so sweet. They are both girls, Yer I know, but Charlie can be a girls name also. Their characters are already showing and they are both very different, one is fast and full of beans, the other is chatty (yes chatty, she chats so much) especially when in a cuddle, almost purrs. The children and I have read the 'How to' books and we know that this is a good thing. I was very nervous about getting these as I have lost a few well loved pets over the last couple of years (to old age) and its so distressing also with the children getting older they understand and feel the loss which obviously causes more upset.

So this is my company in the house when I have those couple of hours in the day after taking the children to school and nursery, whilst I run through the house doing housework, then blog and if lucky maybe, just maybe, get some sewing/knitting done. Archie the Big Bunny is not getting left out and its rather cute because he has come over all cuddly at the moment, he keeps giving me a little nudge for attention.

OK the housework is done, well as much as I do it! The dinner is prepared, today's blog post written and now I am off to my sewing room with my ipod, a few new podcasts to listen to...See you tomorrow.

At the risk of sounding like victor meldrew "I don't believe it"! They do look very cute though! Are you hoping to have enough animal fur around to start spinning your own wool?!

hi, i used to have two girl guinea pigs and they lived in the house, rather than the garden, and they were the BEST pets ever :-) I even trained one to let me know when she needed a pee when she was on my lap !!! she was just extra smart though cos the other one would pee anywhere !!! and if i was late getting up and doing their 'breakfast' they would squeak so loud they would wake me up !! you are all going to have so much fun and get so much love back from these cuties
