What to say about January?

Hello, everyone, Bertie here. I hope you all survived the first few days of the new year okay.

We started on some yummy new hay that Auntie Doris and Uncle Bob brought when they visited. We don’t understand why we haven’t had it before, because it comes from Norfolk Pastures, who do our normal hay. Mummy doesn’t know either. She says our Corn Store doesn’t stock it, and she’ll ask Mr Ken why.

Typical, isn’t it, to find a yummy new local product just when we’re about to leave.

We don’t know when that will happen. Mummy is going to visit without us in the next two weeks, just for two nights each time. She says she’s going to take our big cages down in the car with her so that we can live in those when the time comes for everything to be packed up. She’s also taking the Christmas decorations, which she packed away last night. She said she might as well put them in the cupboard in the new house as put them in the cupboard here. Doesn’t that apply to everything, Mummy?

I did like the Christmas tree. It was very pretty, with twinkly lights, and pictures of all us George’s Guinea Pig World piggies hanging from the branches. There were also gold and red balls, sparkly birds, a llama made out of reed, a metal reindeer, a wooden map of Iceland, several pretty bells, and some tinsel which is all glittery like snow.

But it’s gone now (sigh).

I don’t know what we’re going to do for the rest of January. Nothing much, I think. Just eat our hay and pellets and dream of grass in the sunshine somewhere, sometime.

Have a nice time.

  1. Shame about the hay, but I expect your Mummy will find you some good local stuff when you move too. You’ll just have to enjoy this stuff while you can.

    Mummy likes the sound of your tree, and so do I. We didn’t have one. Mummy wanted to, but Daddy said we’d better not this year, because the dogs are too hyper. They didn’t last year either, because the Lilie dog was still chewing things a lot, and they were worried she’d try to eat it and get sick. I wish we had decorations with our pictures for when we do have one next though. Mummy says she’s going to have to look in to that, especially since the Lilie dog doesn’t chew things all the time now (she hasn’t chewed on anything she’s not meant to since her birthday, which was last March) and the Logan dog is already starting to calm down, so hopefully we can have a tree next Winter Solstice. Mummy and I sure hope so.

    Squeak soon,

    January stinks. The only good thing is that the days are slowly getting longer again.

    If I were there I’d help Mummy with all her packing. I’m sure she’ll do a fine job on her own, though.

    Be good. Love you all.



  3. I don’t like January either, Bertie. We got our tree down last weekend and I was sad to see it go because it was beautiful and still fresh. January is gray and brown and is just a month to get through. Have fun with your brothers and look forward to the move – that will be exciting and I can’t wait to see your new digs!
