Summer Holidays are here again...

Wow, didn't that come round fast, one minute we are shoveling snow and the next we are shlurping lollies to keep cool.



AGAIN, It has been a while and I have soooo much to tell you...



Firstly we have two new babies in the family. They were born on the 16th May 2010 and they arrived at out house on the 24th June at very nearly six weeks old. A little early I know but I think the lady who had them felt they needed to go sooner rather than later.



As soon as they were home we loved them as if we'd had them forever.



By that weekend there was only one little fella left so my Mum had him. He was un-named for a few days and was then called Roley which, after much consideration and watching him fly round her home like a rocket he was re-named "Rocky". He is quite adorable.



Our little babies are soooo sweet and I know you want to see them...














This is Charlie.. This is a photo of him in his carrier going to the vets for his first vaccination. We went on the bus, Mum, myself, Jim and three little puss cats.








Now this is Florrie, short for Florence who is looking up through the opening in the pet carrier.








This is Charlie again but now on our window sill, it's quite a good vantage point for him. He can see out into the world but the world can't get him....


He is just round the corner enough that you can't see him if you look just over the sofa and Florrie is not easily able to find him, but when she does, Charlie has the advantage of seeing her first so he has the element of surprise, which is always handy...









This is Florrie, lounging on the same sofa, which is fast becoming a favourite spot. I will add at this point that, when I went to collect these little bundles of love, I was assured that Charlie was a boy and Florrie was a girl.......



When we went to the vets and everything was counted, weighed and squeazed it became apparant that Florrie was not all she seemed.....


There was more to her than met the eye, yes you got it Florrie is a boy .....



We have since tried various names from Sir Didymus, Felix, Floyd and

Mc-Flurry to Pirate, Capt'n Jack (Sparrow or Harkness take your pick) and finally Neo, (from the Matrix and also means a new form of something).


But we have finally settled on a name that we all like....



Yes, Florrie will still be Florrie.. we just can't get our heads round a new name now. I don't think he's too bothered.


I mean there are many men with girl names, like Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson, Gene Simmons, Robin Hood and Winnie the pooh, there is even a song called "A boy named Sue" and even a town called Alice (or is it malice?, yeah I know that's not quite the same)


So he's in good company..



We thought it would be a good idea for the puss cats to meet another member of the Plummer clan while they are still young, So this is Poppet our ever expanding rabbit and Charlie.



Florrie would not sit still long enough to be in the picture and was determined to see if he could ride Poppet like a pony ride outside Tescos. Suffice to say Poppet was not amused and kept bucking him off..







I will leave this entry here as I have another up my sleeve for later.

As I said there is soooo much to tell you.
