Summer is here! We’ve had lovely weather this week. The girls have been playing barefoot in the garden every day after school and again after dinner. It’s great to see them coming in at bedtime, grubby and tired and happy. I hope they remember these days of childhood.
Meanwhile we have a new member of the family! I’d like you all to meet Enid…
You might remember we lost our poor old Cat a few months ago. My eldest daughter has been wanting a small pet for a while now so we took the plunge and got a rat!
She really is a pretty little thing. Very nervous. And not used to being handled. She’d been in the adoption centre at the pet shop for a while and needed a new home.
She will take food from my hand, so that’s a good start. I’m going to try to hold her for a short while every day so hopefully, by the summer holidays, she should be well socialised and ready to play with the girls. They’re both so happy to have a pet in the house again!
