Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret!
Well, it has finally arrived, the 1st of December, the first day of Winter!
We were out a bit later today but it didn't help 'cos the wind was blowing from the north and it was COLD!
At one time I thought I was weeing icicles!
The ferrets decided to stay in the ferret bag and have a cuddle with Old Two Legs left hand 'cos it was like a hot water bottle! Mind you, OTL got them out as we got close to the car but they both rushed back to the bag and climbed back in!
When we got home they had a rampage around the house ducking and dooking all over the place and saying that the inside of the house is certainly preferable to a cold sandy beach!
OTL got confirmation that they had found a camera so he had to get his credit card out and pay the nice lady on the other end of the telephone line.
Poor OTL didn't know whether to laugh or cry so he just had a little snivel and a look at the instruction manual and in the end he cheered up! Now he has something to look forward to on Monday!
Lunchtime comes and there is blue sky outside but we don't get caught out on that one, OTL gets wrapped up in his big warm coat and pulled the ear flaps down on his woolly hat!
It was still cold but the ferrets decided to stay in the bag until we got back to the football field where the trees and bushes blocked the wind. Both Freddy and Wendy enjoyed a little jog across the field until they got to the car, it was then that they jumped into OTL's arms again and snuggled down until they got back into the travelling cage where OTL had put some big soft blankets.
Back home it was time for our treat!
Day one of the Advent Calender!
OTL made a bit of a song and dance getting the wrapping off and opening the first door, then there was the inside which was all sealed up as well! Finally we found out how to get in, poke it with your claw!
Inside were three little bone shaped biscuits looking the same colour as Choc Chip Cookies, but smaller and looking bone shaped as I said before.
They didn't last too long, Holly and I chomped them down in no time at all!
Now, what is behind door number two?
The ferrets offered to dig into the back of the box to find out for us but we reckon they might just have a nibble and then run off not only with the treat but both boxes!
We'll let you know tomorrow!
Bye bye for now.
Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.
