U is for Uncles and Underneath things

Way-aye, Roscoe here again.

Blogging from A to Z

We’ve got to the letter U in our A to Z Challenge.  It is very challenging.  Mam says most of these last ones are, but Bertie’s doing V next week and he’s just been to see his V, so he’s dictating his post to me today. Mam has shown me how to schedule it, which is to post it on a certain day.  Bertie has NU-MOAN-I-A which we don’t know how he got it but makes his lungs ache and he makes a crackly noise when he breathes.  His medicine upsets his tummy. Upsets – that’s a U word.

UNCLES – is the man thing for Auntie.  We don’t have many Uncles.  Uncle Bob came to see us last week.  I think he came to see us, with Auntie Doris, although they went for a walk with Mam before they sat and cuddled us. It was a very long walk, they were out for hours.  Anyhow, Mam and Auntie and Uncle took photos of us on their laps.  Bob has a lovely hairy chin. It’s fun to play with. Mam doesn’t have a hairy chin, neither does Auntie Doris.  I think that’s what makes Bob an Uncle.

We also like being UNDERNEATH things.  Nev and I have an underneath Biggles’ run, which is a nice secure hideyhole.  We all enjoy being Underneath Mam’s table in the kitchen, and also the other piece of furniture which is like a cupboard on legs. Mam says she doesn’t do anything underneath anywhere these days, but she understands why we like it.  Mam’s good at Understanding us!

See you next time. I’ll be doing W.

PS We celebrated two years with Mam yesterday. I like it here. It feels like we’ve been here forever. I try not to think about those things we talked about for R.

It’s been very sunny

Hello, Percy here again.

I don’t know what to write about really.  It’s been very sunny, but Mummy seems to wear a lot of clothes, especially when she goes out.  She says it’s cold outside.  I don’t really know what that means, although I must admit it gets cooler at night than it used to.  I’m nice and warm, either in my snuggly bed or lying on my bed of hay.

We have a window in our roof, and sometimes I see a white thing in the sky at night.  It changes shape.  I gather it’s called the moon and it goes round our world and gets shone on by the sun, which makes it look white, but we don’t always see it all.  Sounds complicated.  The sun comes in our garden more than it did, because some trees have been cut down.  Mummy says it’s good for the grass, which will grow better next year, but if it gets hot we won’t have enough shade, so she’s trying to work out what to do about it.  I’m sure she’ll think of something.

The men who were making noises and made us move into the other room have all gone.  There was one who came back and made noises upstairs the other day, but he’s gone now and Mummy says he won’t be coming back.  Although tomorrow the man will come to check our boiler to make sure we keep warm through the winter.  I had a look at the boiler yesterday, because Mummy washed all our cage wear, and took it out to lay on the warm surfaces in the cupboard with the boiler while she was cuddling me.  It was all very interesting, but I prefer sitting on her lap to be cuddled.

So, that’s all the news from here.  What’s happening with you?

Busy week!

We had a busy week. Not just eating hay, sleeping, eating grass, chasing round, sleeping, eating pellets, sleeping, cuddling and eating our breakfast leaves and carrots and stuff.  No, we had visitors and photocalls, too.

Tuesday was sunny, so Mummy took Percy outside to have his picture taken with some daffodils.  He’d never been outside before and he thought it was wonderful – if a bit cold.  He said Mummy tucked him in her blue fleecy jacket so he kept warm between shots.  Then he came back in and Oscar went out to have his photo taken, too.

Then Wednesday afternoon it was all wet and horrid, and Mummy came back early from golf in time to see Auntie Shirley and Uncle Barry.  Usually we have to go to see them to have our teeth done.  And since they weren’t looking at our teeth, I didn’t mind giving Auntie Shirley a cuddle.  And Midge cuddled Uncle Barry.

Thursday was nice and Mummy spent a lot of time in the gardening.  We had some kale afterwards, and some sprouting broccoli leaves and stalk on Friday.  Saturday and Sunday were rather quiet after all that excitement.  I was so tired, I went to sleep.  I’m sure you can’t believe that!
