The hedgehogs have been busy bipping around the garden at BBHQ this week; Scooter, Wriggles and Snuffles have been visiting every night, although we have missed Prickles, but they do bip in and out at different times, so if we've been in the upstairs lounge and Prickles ambled along, we could've easily missed him/her visiting. The younger ones seem to arrive together or not long after each other.
Scooter, the smallest one likes to eat and then he'll go and get huddled up against the basket, mew'll see in the video. Then he'll go and get some more snacks and then return for another huddle in the same spot. We've been keeping an eye on him, but he seems fine.
They don't seem bothered by our presence or by us videoing them at all. In fact, last night Wriggles sat a few inches away from the P.A.'s foot while she talked to him/her.
There's also another Hedgehog which appeared one night last week that we haven't seen before, and Snuffles wasn't pleased as there was a bit of a kerfuffle, sadly we didn't have the phone so didn't get any footage, though we will keep an eye out to see if the new one appears again.
Next up in the news. Dad and the P.A. went on a little shopping excursion on Caturday to our local B&M store, and while the P.A. was meandering along the Pet Food Aisle she spied some new things, catnip and valerian cushions, so she got one of each for us to try and a new feather wand toy for Melvyn which we'll share next time.
We think the cushions were hit, and next time we'll show mew the video where; catnip cushions cause a disturbance to the peace, just ask Smooch. #ohdear
Haunted Happenings at BBHQ
And finally this week, if mew remember on the Friday Fill-ins when the P.A. mentioned her missing earring?
So if mew've caught up on the story so far, the P.A. will continue...
Hello lovely readers, and I'm going to share my theory of the missing earring which I will say is a bit far out and probably completely absurd, but do bear with me while I explain.
The barn conversion which we live in is over 200 years old, it's apparently even older than the church in our little village and was even built before the farm house next door which my uncle purchased in 1983 along with the derelict barn (our home) and a few acres of land. My uncle converted the barn in 1986 and I moved in in 1999.
So when I moved in and started to do a bit of decorating and stuff, strange things began to happen. I noticed that unexplained phenomena only occurred when I was changing stuff, and at the time the earring vanished I'd been remodelling the laundry.
Anyhoo, what I think happened to the earring is this, it was teleported or spirited away to the old farm house next door. I know it sounds really bizarre but I've had items that don't belong to me appear in my house.
For example one Saturday morning a kids purple Porsche dinky toy appeared out of nowhere on the chest of drawers in the middle bedroom. We don't have kids, it was not an item I'd ever seen before and it just appeared, materialised overnight as it definitely wasn't there the evening before and no one else had been in the house.
The people who live in the farmhouse had three boys, their dad drove a Porsche and that is my only rational explanation, well as rational as one can be with strange occurrences. And before you ask, I don't ever see the neighbours, and therefore never got to ask if it belonged to them.
My earring never came back, but I suspect it's next door at the Snail Slingers (that's another story). And the purple car did vanish again at some point, so who knows where it is now???
There's also been actual poltergeist activity happen too, and let me know in the comments if you want to hear about that, as we had to get the house blessed.
