A very exciting week

Roscoe here.  Glad to see you again.  I gather a few had a wee problem with the accent, like.  Sorry bout that, but Mam says she likes it.

This week was very exciting.  We had a birthday party for young Biggles and his brother Bertie.  You know I’m not right friendly with Bertie.  And Percy filled me in on events between Biggles and Bertie.  It sounds like Bertie’s as bad with his brother as he is with me.

Biggles first birthday cake

Anyhow, Biggles invited Neville and me to his party, which was on the floor in the living room.  That was different!  We don’t usually run around there.  There was a nice warm blanket with something crinkly underneath.  Mam says it’s a plastic tablecloth to protect her floor carpet. Oh, I get you 😉

I had fun exploring, and nosing around the things there, and I found some shiny things up at the side, apparently they spelled out summat, but I don’t read long words too well, especially when the letters are twice the size of meself.  Neville discovered the birthday cake and spent nearly all his time there.  Well, it was nice, and I did have some. Just not that much. Biggles was a bit shy of it too.  He had a good rumble at me instead.

I gather the others had a second party with a separate birthday cake which Midge spent most of his time eating.  Midge and Neville – I wonder what they’d do if they lived together?!

Neville’s teeth are growing along okay.  Mam took more photos this weekend to show you how they go, week on week.  Neville hasn’t lost any weight, mind.

And my lump has finally gone away (touch wood, Mam says), and I’ve finished one of the antibiotics and Mam says I can finish the other on Thursday.  Of course it’s the horrid tasting one that lasts longer.  I cannot wait for Thursday.

Have a nice week!

Oscar and Midge are two years old

Oscar and Midge had a birthday on Saturday.  It was very exciting, because a new lady came, I hadn’t met her before.  Everyone else had, and she knew everyone who’s ever been here.  Auntie Vikki.  She tickled my nose and my head but I felt that was enough on first meeting and moved away before she tried the full body cuddle.  Maybe next time.

Then she and Mummy went and sat outside with Oscar and Midge.  They got lots of cuddles, and they don’t often go out at the same time, so they must have been on best behaviour.  Vikki gave them a card and some presents.  We had some of the present for breakfast next day.  It was okay.  A breakfast cookie.  Mummy says there’s two more, each, with different flavours.  That’s good, I wasn’t excited by the flavour of the one we had yesterday.

We also had birthday cake in the garden in the afternoon.  That was great!!!  I loved birthday cake.  Mummy took photos of us, then took the candles off the cake and we just enjoyed it while we had a run on the grass.  I enjoyed the cake very, very much.  Kevin got a bit stroppy with me at one point.  I don’t know what he was fussed about, just because I’d taken over his tent and ate more of the cake than anyone else.

We all got presents for Oscar and Midge’s birthday – new cagewear.  Oscar inherited George’s hammock, which I never worked out how to use; I got a new bed, which I’ve tried out and it’s very comfortable; Kevin got a new snugglesack which he says is ace, and Midge got a new tunnel which he likes so much he doesn’t want to leave.   He also got a rosette for the Piggy of the Month photo, but I’ll talk about that next week.

It was a very busy weekend, and I need a rest, but I have to wish our American friends a Happy Independence Day.  I hope you enjoy it.

Terrific birthday party!

We had a terrific birthday party on Friday!  Dougall and I were FOUR YEARS OLD and Mummy made us a lovely cake with candles on it… FOUR candles.  I found they got in the way of the cake decoration so I knocked them off and Mummy took them away to make sure we didn’t eat them.

Mummy wants to show how much we’ve grown:

I think they’re pretty cool.  You can see we sometimes party in our run, and sometimes in the living room.  That’s special in the living room.  This year Mummy introduced us to Mr Percy, but she said I was too rough with him.  I always get over-enthusiastic at parties. Kevin puts up with it better, but then Mummy gave me a bird’s-eye view of him and Dougall having a game. Continue reading “Terrific birthday party!”

Kevin’s Birthday party

We celebrated Kevin’s official birthday last Thursday.  We had a party in the garden.  It’s okay for an hour or so in the sunshine at present, but Mummy has to go and dry the grass in the morning, and sweep the leaves off it.  Although they are very tasty leaves, she thinks we shouldn’t eat them.

Kevin had his cake with five candles on it, and he said it was yummy, so we all had a little piece when we got back in our cages.   Continue reading “Kevin’s Birthday party”

Colman’s 7th birthday party

We don’t know when Colman’s birthday is, but we think he must be seven by now.  He came here at the end of April 2012, and Auntie PigPog said he was between 3 and 4 then.  That makes him between 6 and 7 last April, so he must be seven now.

Mummy had an official 5th birthday for him on 1st October, but his 6th was a year and a day later because it was all very sad last 1st October and none of us felt like a party.

On Friday she said we should have a party for him this weekend because he’s got kidney problems, and we might as well celebrate while the weather’s nice. Continue reading “Colman’s 7th birthday party”
