Meet Jess and Tess, who came to join Millie, Mollie and Andy Pandy today. They are all rescue Guinea pigs and are gorgeous. They also answer me when I talk to them. OK, I don't understand them but they respond when spoken to. Every day Colin has one on his lap and he can strokes them with one finger. With each stroke he says "Ah, Ah, Ah". One nudged him under the chin today and he actually smiled..the first time for ages.
I'm sure Jess and Tess will soon get used to cuddles as well.
I celebrated having my new babies by ordering a curry takeaway for one, delivered to the door, and enjoyed a glass of wine.
So all in all, it's been a good day; apart from clearing up the large "present" C produced for me and getting rid of the dead rat I found in the garden.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
