Wild thing

DSCF0602I see you there!

This little mouse watched me while I mucked out the hogs today…..cheeky thing, between that and the robin perching on the table….

Well guys, I’m off on a jolly to York for four days for a friends’ birthday, sixteen of us are going so it should be something of a hoot.

I won’t have internet access so I shall catch up with you all when I get home.

Until then

    A jolly sounds like something we all need. I’m sure you’ll have an adventurous time. Little Mouse will hold down the fort until you get back. Enjoy!

    Awww, what a cutie. I’ve ordered the weather for you up here in Yorkshire so you shouldn’t need to bring a coat. Have a wonderful weekend, York’s such a beautiful city so I hope you get to see some of it in between celebrating.

    Little mouse does not appear to be quivering, you must instil a sense of security.

    Have a great few days! πŸ™‚ xx

      Thanks Menhir, little mouse was as bold as brass, it sat there for such a long time I actually thought it may have something wrong with it, but it was absolutely fine…..just very cheeky.
      We had a marvelous time. xxx

      Thanks Gilly, it was a wonderful break and we had so much fun, and it was so lovely to come home and see how my seedlings had sprouted and how much more blossom there is.xxx

    Cheeky little creature! I’ve seen least one in the shed where my beekeeping equipment has been stored over winter. If it has eaten its way through some of the comb I won’t be pleased at all…

    Have a lovely break!

      Oh noooooooo….I hope your equipment has survived those razor sharp teeth….thanks Wendy, we all had a fab time. xxx

    I’m sure you’ll have a jolly good time πŸ™‚ York is a wonderful location for a gathering ~ looking forward to hearing about your time there….in the meantime, the mouse will realize that the cat’s away… and party on as well.

      Thanks Glo, we stayed in a converted farmhouse, it was gorgeous and very remote so didn’t manage to see York….lol….yesxthe mouse will no doubt be there watching me tomorrow, from somewhere or other…xxx

  17. March 16, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    You were quick on the draw getting a photo of that little mouse.
    Have a wonderful time in York and tell us all about it when you get back xxx

      Now here’s the thing Kegs….that little mouse sat there for ages before it sauntered off….really bold it was!
      We all had a really lovely time, although I need a few days to recover, but back in the rescue tomorrow.xxx

    How wonderful to get together with old friends for the sake of being happy together… for a celebration. And of course, it seems only natural to me, that a mouse would get cheeky in your company. Mice are very much like us in certain ways, and I’m sure that one felt quite secure… felt your love for your fellow creatures. Hope it was a perfect get together, and looking forward to your report. xxx

      Thanks Shimon, it was a very bold little mouse and seemed very interested and curious about me and what I was doing. It would be a lovely thing if it did sense that it would come to no harm….
      We all had a really lovely time, I’ve never seen so much food and drink…and there was lots of laughter and story telling….and singing of course. xxx

    Smart little mouse! She knew you wouldn’t hurt her. I find mice in the bottom of my bird seed bins and I always let them go in the garden. They seem so surprised.

    • Snow Bird
      March 19, 2014 at 8:16 pm

      Ahhhh….glad you let the little mice go, I can imagine their surprise, they are probably more used to people shrieking!!! xxx

    Great to get away with a big bunch of friends – sounds like a right old jolly up! It’s the sort of thing I would do when much younger *sigh*. Hope you had such a good time that it will be best not to mention any of it!!
