St. Paddy’s Day

Today is St. Patrick’s day! And to celebrate, Ben and myself went in search of a four-leaf clover.

See anything yet Ben?

Is this a four-leaf clover?

No Ben.

Ben continues the search…

Hey wait mum. Look – I found something!

It looks like clover.

Yes, well done Ben. But they only have three leaves…

Maybe Ben’s my lucky charm.
15-03-11 (21)

Yeah – that’ll do nicely.

Speaking of Paddys, I’ve got a visitor… Meet Paddy the Hamster!

He’s staying for the week while his owner’s off on holiday.

It’s like he’s having a holiday too.

He came with his own hamster ball.

It’s not the first time Paddy’s been here. He was here for a spell in Summer 2009 too. At that time, it was Sheila who wanted to look after him…

But Paddy didn’t come alone this time, oh no… because he brought two Guinea Pigs with him! T.C….
