November 1, 2019

A couple of years ago Mr M&H and I had the ‘musical instrument’ conversation.

That is, at what age is best for them to start playing an instrument?. Working in music, Mr M&H is naturally very keen to foster a love of music in Mole and Hedgehog, and I learned my share at...

It is time to speak of Otter.

Now around five months old, she is like a squidgy ball of chubby deliciousness, with smiley eyes and a dribbly mouth. 

She’s moved through the various stages of sleepy new born fragileness, the relentless cluster feeder, the curved ball in t...

The days are definitely getting Autumnal.

To be honest it’s a relief after the furnace like Summer we had. The blackberries are out, so Mole, Hedgehog and I have done a couple of hedge picking trips, which nicely whiled away some afternoons. Hedgehog sat in the buggy li...

For the past week we’ve had chickens living with us, or chicks to be more accurate.

They are about 10 days old now, and beginning to lose their yellow fluff already, with their Sussex white and black wings showing through. They spar at each other, but it looks like play...

It is mid-afternoon. We are driving slowly around Woburn Safari Park, Mole and Hedgehog are on the back seat, I am watching them in the rear view mirror.

Mole: “Mummy, when will you die?”

Me: “Ummm, not for ages”

Mole: “NO! but mummy WHEN will you DIE?”

Me: “I don’t know l...

It’s been a sick house at Mole and Hedgehog Associates this week. I blame the Autumn cold weather.

First Mole got the streaming nose, then Hedgehog followed. Mole specialises in doing noisy and dramatic sniffs before wiping her nose on her sleeve. Hedgehog prefers the p...

It’s been the most accident prone week on record in the lives of Mole and Hedgehog. First, Mole fell over backwards off her trike, hitting her head on the pavement. We were on a mini outing, trying out our local cycle way that runs past our house, which seemed a better...

It started with Hedgehog’s bum.

In the space of about four hours, she erupted with the worst case of nappy rash I’ve ever seen. Worse even than the time we had to get steroid cream from the doctor for a flare up that came about from diarrhorea, that came about from teet...

Mole and Hedgehog enjoy quite a unique living situation for these days, I think. They play in the street with the neighbouring children. They draw chalks in the road, ride up and down on their bikes, and generally run amuck. I sit on our front garden bench with a cup o...

Mr M&H is away on a stag do for his brother. He left on Friday morning and is meant to be back sometime on Saturday. I have been looking forward to my peaceful evening of DVD box sets for weeks.

On Friday night, after Mole and Hedgehog are in bed, I hang out the laundry...
