I apologise for not having posted for a while. I’ve had the most exciting time and I’ve been busier than ever with the rest of life! With Spring just about here (despite the cold, wind and rain) I’ve been starting off planting some seeds and starting to do more work in the garden. The music and craft parts of life remain busy – and they’ve suffered a lack of blogging as well sadly. However, this post is going to tell you about my most exciting wild adventure and the reason why I really haven’t been blogging as much as I should!
The big news… … …we have a pet!
The little news… … …we decided on a little mouse. We called him Colin.
Colin is a fairly typical fancy mouse. A fancy mouse is just a mouse that isn’t a wild mouse. He’s not a show mouse so anything, but he’s so adoreable. He’s broken marked recessive yellow in colour. We’ve only had him a little over 3 weeks but he’s stolen our hearts and with love him dearly already. He is about 2 months old currently. He is incredibly curious, loves to scurry around his home and climb on all the new toys. He is getting much tamer – today at long last I managed to get him to come to my hand in his home. This is the first time he’s done this, normally I’d get him in a toilet roll tube and get him out from there. Once out, we either put him in a slightly larger play box or just let him climb on our hands/arms/head/body – anywhere on us that isn’t the floor. The downside of this is that we get pooped and weed on most days, but there’s something wonderful about this little creature running up amd down your arms! His favourite treats are plain cheerios and pumpkin seeds.
It seems true currently that the best things come in little packages. He’s only a little mouse, but already I love him dearly and he brings a wonderful joy to my life.
This is probably one of many posts about Colin, however I will only post a maximum of once a month about him, however I will regular update this page dedicated to him more frequently.
Here are a selection of the most recent photos with a little diary as the caption to each one.
Thanks for reading!
