I am being a surrogate Mum again, this time not for three guinea pigs, but for my favourite ‘Children’.
The Fred and the Lily.
Have you missed them? I have. I miss my regular Fredders and Bilster time and miss being able to have them at the flat and generally laugh at them doing stupid things. I feel like since I split up with the ex I see them less although I know that this can’t really be the case because I’m sure I see more of my Mum now (and if I don’t I seriously need to reassess my position as Best Daughter Ever). It’s bizarre. But I definitely feel there has been an absence of them on this blog since I started it.
I must rectify that immediately.
Mum is off to see my sister until Sunday so I have my little suitcase packed up (yes it does need to be a suitcase to include laptop and clothes and food and wool and embroidery thread and all other components of my transportable world) and I cannot wait to get to Mum’s house to see my favourite furry faces.
I love them an awful lot you know. My voice goes very creepy and high pitched when I talk about them and I usually end any story about them screwing my face up and saying “I just want to squish their little faces!”
(Hey I’m a self-confessed Crazy Cat Lady. You can’t judge.)
I love them so much that when I go to stay with them I talk to them.
And put blankets on them.
And shove my cameras in their face so much that they start to look as if they’re giving me evils in their photos.
And I love them despite the fact that when I try and take a picture of me with them they move forward and take up the whole ruddy photo with their face so you can only see my ear.
I'm a happy bunny.
