    Good mornooning all. Our drive to our holiday home went well and we are now settled in. We ate at a restaurant last night and enjoyed ourselves looking for geckos on the ways home. The lights are always a good place to look :D At 11am it’s already 28C/82F and the high is due to be 34C /93F...

    The only way you can get the paperwork you need is to go back to the breeder. There is no other way

    Apologies all for my absence. I have been exceedingly busy. However, the brief news is that I am on holiday at last. We left home at silly o’clock this morning… drove to the Eurotunnel terminal and onto a train… and then drove another 570 miles arriving in a tiny place called Mirmande in...

    Good afternooning all. I had my proud Mum moment today as I for to release the little wren that we have reared from a pink newly hatched miniscule dinosaur. Unfortunately my attempt to video the releas failed as he was too quick to be off! He spent this morning beating waxworms senseless and...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Traditionally it’s leftover cooked cabbage and mashed potato with bacon. Jamie’s version is a posh cheffy version. It’s even better topped with a fried egg :D

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Bubble and squeak is the name of a dish… leftovers fried up in a pan with bacon. It’s not rhyming slang; it’s descriptive. Squeak is the bacon and it’s all thrown in a pan and bubbled up together.

    COLD DARK ROOM

    That I don’t know. My specialism is baby birds, not baby rodents. I know that puppy milk is used for a lot of things, including hedgehogs, but couldn’t swear they use it for dormice.

    COLD DARK ROOM

    With a very small amount of specialist milk and a small syringe… one drop at a time. It will soon be helping itself to seed, 😊

    COLD DARK ROOM

    I have to share some extremely cute pictures from the rescue… neither of them mine, but they are so adorable! This is one of 3 baby hedgehogs that came in extremely dehydrated. They’re being reared by a friend of mine and need feeding every 90 minutes day and night. They’re through the danger...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Good afternooning all. Our theatre trip was excellent, but a late night doesn’t half tire me out these days. I can’t cope with late bedtimes like I could in my youth. I have been to the physio/osteopath again today. My shoulder is so painful. All muscular. I came out feeling worn out and had a...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Good afternooning all. We had a lot of rain and there has been flooding locally. Fortunately we are at the top of a hill and, while the pond is brim full and so are the rain butts, we are very unlikely to flood ever. JoesDad and I are going to London again tonight for his birthday present this...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Good evenooning all. We had both children visit today as it’s JoesDad’s birthday tomorrow. They’re gone now, but it is lovely to see them :) We are currently in the middle of a deluge. I hesitate to call it a storm. It’s raining so hard that the satellite tv isn’t working.

    COLD DARK ROOM

    All is explained. JoesDad has had a few removed over the years. He is a redhead and has many moles in all shapes, sizes and colours. He gets them checked annually by a dermatologist who describes JoesDad’s skin as “fascinating“… this isn’t necessarily something you want to hear from your...
