A Tail Of Two Bunnies!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This morning started off in a very lazy way...a cup of tea being brought up to me....still asleep....at 8.30am!!
I did wake earlier, around 6am...but then drifted back into a peaceful slumber...very unusual for me these days!
By the time we had done a little pillow surfing, chatted about what we hoped to achieve for the day...it was nigh on 10am!!
 
 
 
One of the things I had hoped would get done, was the small area of flooring by the sink.
For years it had been covered with lino, which we had taken up a few weeks ago.
We were disappointed to find the floor boards stopped just short of the sink, leaving a rather messy area of broken up concrete and a few old quarry tiles.
I would have been more than happy to discover it all tiled and just cleaned them up, but as it was, was just no good.
The quickest and cheapest fix was to just dig up that area and replace with more tiles.
Teen Two enjoyed getting up the old concrete and tiles...
 
 
 
...Hubby then cracked on with the tiling...
 
 
 
...and we now have a firm surface to stand on.
Ultimately I would like the floorboard nearest the tiles changing as it really is rather beaten up...I don't mind the lived in look, but this really has seen too much life!
I read once its best to take a board from another part of the house, as being the same age it will blend in better....so that is definitely a project for another time.
 
 
 
For lunch I tried something I saw on "Eat Well For Less" last week...an egg muffin.
I didn't remember exactly how it was done....but near enough.
Melt a small amount of butter in a mug, add an egg ( now here was the bit I couldn't remember...to beat the egg of leave it whole??) I then lightly whisked the egg with a fork, added a small amount of grated cheese, then microwaved for one minute....
 
 
...et voila! It came out of the mug very neatly, and popped inside a toasted muffin was very quick and easy, and went down well with all the family.
Teen Two and Hubby had a slice of ham with theirs....and some brown sauce I believe.
Next time I will try it without whisking the egg.
 

But by far the most exciting part of the day was the arrival of some unexpected summer visitors!!
Yesterday Grandma happened to mention that her neighbours, who had sold their house very quickly, now had to find homes for all their animals as the new people were moving in next week and they haven't found anywhere to live yet!
As a throw away comment I said that Teen Two would love to bunny sit, if they were desperate and were happy for strangers to look after them.
I didn't think any more of it, but this morning Grandma rang to say they were very interested...within the hour the door knocked and two strangers stood there...was it right we were happy to have their bunnies??
So we invited them into the garden to see where the hutch could go, had a lovely chat and said any time they wanted to bring them was fine with us...and within the hour they came back with our summer visitors!
This is "Little One" with Teen Two.
She sat and enjoyed being cuddled for over an hour!
 
 
And here is Buster, enjoying his first explore of the garden.
Their garden is just patio, so they were enjoying rummaging through the bushes in  our garden!
 
 
The hutch unfortunately was too wide to fit through the garage door to the garden so they are now living in the garage...which means the old Clio will need to be kept on the road...but that's not a major problem. I found a space that no one else uses, not outside a house, so I don't think any neighbours will fall out with us..and it is only temporary!
We are excited to have these little visitors...Teen Two especially loves rabbits....although our cats are not too sure...so we shall be keeping them apart!
Whilst chatting with the couple, we said how lucky they were to sell their house within a week....we had family who have been trying for some time, down in Devon....Ooo where in Devon, they wanted to know...so having told them where and the sort of property it was...they are off to google it!
As he left he said "these things happen for a reason!"
So who knows!

Today's Promise:
   But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
