Week #2 & #3

Sunday, 18 January 2015
Whilst being completely stuffed up with the worst cold I have ever experienced these past two weeks all my focus went on just getting up to go to work, not a blog post was to be seen. I think I've even consumed a whole Boots load of cold and flu remedies. But rather than show a photo of some paracetamol I thought I would start with Basil and Rocky.
Yesterday Matt and I got given a fancy coffee pot and today I have been enjoying the best tasting home brewed coffee I have ever drank. But who knew that you had to store the coffee in the freezer?
My cactus garden is coming along nicely. One of them almost needed to be binned but I *think* I have managed to revive it. One day I am going to research into each type that I own and find some types that I really want to get.

We picked up some new fish for our aquarium because I had decided there wasn't enough colour. We have plenty of silver, black and even white fish, we needed some orange. The breed we went for were Swordtails and above shows the really clear difference between male and females. The males have the longer tail. They are known to breed well too, a couple of the females are even showing signs of being pregnant.

Meet Mouse.
He's been mine for a couple of months now and I thought it was time to introduce you to him. He's from a rescue and is a long haired black syrian. A hamster type that has been my "dream hamster" since I started keeping them. I was far too excited to see him on the rescues facebook page! Hopefully I can get some good photos of him because his fur is just adorable. He has a really long grey skirt and is a general fluff ball. Mouse is just so hard to photograph.
