Staycation

So, as my birthday present the boyf offered to take me away for a long weekend somewhere towards the end of my holidays.

Because of the new additions to the family (...so I got ANOTHER ferret... more about that later) and the fact the idea of struggling our way through a busy airport over the bank holiday seemed like torture, we decided on a staycation instead of a vacation.

So for the next week we're going to fill our time with lots of lovely touristy things we can do from home, and nice meals out. If we get a sunny day Leeds Castle in Kent is pretty high on my list of things I want to do, and the boyf fancies the London Eye one evening and maybe a little river cruise. We were also thinking of perhaps driving out to the countryside, finding a nice hotel and having a quiet night away where someone else cooks breakfast for us in the morning.

So... more about ferret #2. He's called Hugo. He's teeny tiny weeny at only 6 weeks old (although he's a big boy for that age). He's prone to temper tantrums and is currently in his cage screaming at the top of his voice because I won't let him out. I think Archie is slightly bemused and slightly pissed off. To be fair I'd be pissed off if I had to share a room with something so little but so loud.

I've had to put them in separate cages as Archie is about 4x bigger than him and plays a little rough, although it can't be bothering Hugo too much as he keeps going back for more.

Just over 2 weeks until uni starts again and I'm really excited. I need to go smart clothes shopping as I ended up throwing out most of last years clinic clothes which had completely worn out. I've already got a new academic diary. It's nice and shiney and new! I love new diaries!

Two ferrets? Are they going to blog together?

Have a good staycation. I hope that the weather stays fine so that you can enjoy getting out and about; it's just started raining here and the wind is howling. Is this the start of winter?

I've just had to battle to get the windows shut because it's so windy and wet. Unfortunately I still have to pop to the shops to get food to cook for dinner... oh dear!

The 2 ferrets may blog together if Archie doesn't eat Hugo first. I've never met something so small that makes such a big noise. He's as loud as a dog!
