I love hedgehogs and we have quite a number of prickly visitors making their way through out garden, munching away on the equally healthy population of slugs, throughout the ‘non-hibernatory’ parts of the year. They are a welcome sight and a pleasure to watch and listen to, as they snuffle about and so I was particularly delighted to find the ‘Hedgehog Kit’ offer on the Deramores on-line shop, the other week.

I’m in between knitting projects at the moment and as I still haven’t got the manure I need for the garden (need to get that this next week without fail), not to mention the fact that an old back injury from some 29 years ago is playing me up in fine fashion at the moment, I still haven’t been able to do the jobs that need doing out in the vegetable garden which has resulted in me having time on my hands in the evenings and at weekends.

With Christmas over and school due to reopen, Mud and I turned our thoughts to how on earth we were going to fit train tracks and Lego buildings into the Mudlet bedrooms. With some sadness we decided the only way to fit everything in was to pack away and move into the attic, most of the Playmobil. Continue reading
The last few days of 2014 galloped on by at a startling rate of knots. In the last few days Eldest Mudlet came to visit and is now the proud owner of a gorgeous jumper knitted by moi, the details of which can be found here. Mud finally succumbed completely to the flu virus and retired to bed the day after Boxing Day, where he remained for much of the weekend and although he had been up and about over the last couple of days of the year, he was still far from 100% and was unable to stay up to watch the New Year in. Meanwhile the latest additions to the Mudlet Lego collections, have pretty much taken over the lounge. Continue reading
It was 7.10 Christmas morning when we all trundled downstairs to see what Santa had left under the tree. All things considered, we got off lightly and even then it was Mud getting up which started the day and not Little Mudlet which, considering the state of hyper excitement she has been in this last week, was the first surprise of the day.

It’s fair to say that we have a lot of Lego in our house. Some of the Lego actually belonged to Mud as a boy but over the last 6 years or so, several boxes of mixed bricks and roof tiles have been added to Muds’ boyhood stash, as well as Pick a Brick orders of windows, wheels and flat plates and we now have three plastic storage boxes filled with the stuff. In addition, Middle Mudlets’ room has a large unit and a long shelf dedicated to the display of the specific sets that she has collected over the years from the various themes, not to mention the veritable army of special mini-figures collected from the ‘Blind Bag’ sets.
Arriving home from Head Office the other night, Mud dumped a carrier bag on the kitchen worktop. Continue reading
To my right, under the window, is Little Mudlets’ riding stables with jumps, horse box and 4×4 and a respectable herd of horses, ponies, a goat and a donkey. Continue reading
