Hello, Locksley here.
We’ve had a nice week here, going out in the garden several times. Victor and Pippin love being out on the grass, they run around the whole time and eat it. Ludo and I are more sedate in our runs, but we still come out for some grass when we feel like it.
Mummy’s been out a lot. I don’t know what she’s up to. She goes out at odd times, then comes back and spends the rest of the day in the front room. She’s also been cleaning and vacuuming a lot. She moved the hay box into our room, and it’s taking up space on the floor.
Then yesterday she went out all day. I mean ALL day. She did our cuddles and cucumber really early in the morning, then she went out. Then she came back and left Auntie Rebecca with us and went out again for hours. Auntie Rebecca came and chatted to us. She’s very nice. But she talks funny. I didn’t understand too much of what she said but she has a nice voice. When Mummy came back Uncle James looked in on us and said hello, and looked out of the windows.
Then they all went out and didn’t come back for AGES. But then when she came back she put us out on the grass and she and Auntie Rebecca sat with us and chatted for a long time, till it was time to go in.
Then they chatted in the front room until Mummy came to give us our cucumber. Mummy went out to feed the hedgehogs and came back to show Auntie Rebecca one that had climbed into the summerhouse and was trying to get into the packet of mealworms. Mummy put their usual food out for them, and since the hedgehog stayed still, she put her gardening gloves on and lifted it outside. She said its prickles were still sharp, and next time she’d use her leather gauntlets.
She took photos of three hedgehogs at the feed she put out a couple of nights ago. Maybe we’ve got some we can show you.
But Mummy’s still acting strangely. She’s going out again today. And tomorrow, apparently. I expect Ludo will update you next week.
Hope nothing is strange where you are.
