Bertie Blogs B for Breakfast

Hello! I’m Bertie and I’m a guinea pig.

We’re blogging from A to Z once a week, because we have other important things to do, like have Breakfast.  We sometimes have Baths, too. We eat Broccoli and Beans, and sometimes Basil.  When Mummy’s bean plants are finished beaning , we get the leaves to eat, and they’re yummy.

Here are some pictures of things beginning with B, modelled by our world of guinea pigs.

I hope you like my photo-tour of the letter B

Next week Roscoe does C.

We’re blogging from A to Z – once a week

Way-aye, Roscoe here, on the 1st of April, which is the start of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

I’d like to welcome everybody who visits and hasn’t met us before.  Just to get one thing straight: we’re guinea pigs.  I’m Roscoe, the mainly white one.  Then we have Bertie, the smooth haired silver one with the white face, Biggles, his brother (although they don’t get on) who is silver-grey and very furry, and then my mate Neville, who’s brown and white and very hairy so most of the time you get to see hair, not Nev.

We’re blogging from A to Z once a week, because Mam won’t let us on the computer more often, since she needs it.  So we’ll blog through the alphabet on Mondays, right through to September.

And we have an exciting thing to include…

A for Anniversary!

It’s this blog’s tenth anniversary in May, just like it’s the A to Z’s tenth anniversary!  Isn’t that funny?  We’re having a real party to celebrate in May, so come back and see us.

We’d also like to mention A for Augustus

He’s a guinea pig we don’t know very well, but he’s Auntie Dawn’s piggy and he lives in New York City.  I don’t know where that is.  I used to live in Newcastle, and now I live in Norfolk, and I had to go through York to get here, but that was a long time ago.  It’s not the same place, Mam says.

Here’s a picture of Augustus, he’s a colour called lemon agouti.  Agouti means he’s got a sort of speckled effect.

Bertie’s also agouti, but he’s silver agouti.  You’ll meet him next week.  We take it in turns to blog.

We’ll explain what George’s Guinea Pig World is all about when we get to G.  All you need to know is we’re guinea pigs and the blog was started by George in May 2009.  Come back every Monday to help us blog through the alphabet.

Till next time

There’s something called A to Z

Hello everybody, Bertie here!

There’s something called A to Z where you go through the alphabet during April, posting every day about something beginning with the right letter.  Percy was doing it when Biggles and I came to live with him.  Well, he was still doing it when we got too big to be in the same cage and he went to live with Midge, but that’s another story.

Anyway, next month is April, and I asked Mummy if we could do it.

Mummy: you know it’s a lot of work, Bertie?

Me: Well, maybe.

Mummy: and you have to find time to visit everyone who visits you.

Me: I can do that.

Mummy: and you have to think of a topic for each letter of the alphabet, and find pictures of it, and make a nice post.

Me: I can do that.

Mummy: Every day. Probably instead of grass time.

Me: Er….

Mummy: I tell you what.  Get together with Roscoe and the others and see if you can make a list of things to post about.  Roscoe can post the list here next week.  Maybe aunties can give you ideas for any gaps.

Me: er… okay.  And then can we do the A to Z in April?

Mummy: Maybe.  Why not just post once a week from A to Z?  That would take you through to the autumn.  It wouldn’t be so much work for you and you’d still have grass time.

Me: That sounds great!  Do we still have to make the list?

Mummy: That’s up to you.

Bertie talks to Roscoe

So, I told Roscoe all about it, and we’re going to put a list together.  He might put it up next week, or I’ll do it the week after. But it isn’t going to be all done in April.  It’s going to be a Long-term Project.

Don’t you think that’s a good idea?

See you next time

love

Exciting News x 2

We’ve got exciting news!

  1. Mummy says we can do the A to Z Challenge in April, as long as we don’t do too much writing for it.  We can do a picture and a few words.  So that’s what we’re doing.
  2. Auntie Dawn has brought a new piggie home, because she has room now Atti has gone over the Rainbow Bridge.  That’s what happens, since so many piggies need rehoming.  The new piggy is called Gus, or Augustus, and he’s a little like Willoughby and a little like Digby.

And even more exciting news, Auntie Sophie brought three new girlies home and a few weeks later one of them has had four babies, 2 boys and 2 girls, and another had 3 babies: 2 girls and 1 boy.  This is why piggies need rehoming, by the way.

Happy New Year

Welcome to our blog in 2017!

We had a restful New Year’s Eve, although there were fireworks at midnight, but we ignored them.  Mummy had been watching a noisy film, and there were a lot of people who visited on Thursday.  Mummy put me and Oscar upstairs in a small blue cage, but a few people came to admire us.  We went back downstairs when they’d all left, so we weren’t in the blue cage for long.  Oscar bickered a few times, and set Midge off chattering at him, but generally the pair of them were well behaved.  Kevin ignored us.  He does that when he’s in his run.  I think he has better things to do than socialise.

I love socialising.  I see Mummy’s put a picture of Humphrey, Hector and Hugo socialising at the top of the page.  That’s good.  I wish these boys were more social.  They’re hard work, I can tell you.  But I suppose they’re all right.

Mummy’s asked Kevin and me to discuss whether we want to do the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April.  We don’t have to decide for a while, but she wants us to say what we think and how we’d do it, if we want to.  We don’t have to.  Victor did it, and I think George did too.  It might be fun, or it might be hard work.

I’ll have to lie down and think about it.
