Just thought I would pop up and say hello as I haven't been on here for quite a while.
I think I've said in a previous post that I've had some more mice from Hannah at Little Bud Mousery (back around Eastertime). I can't speak highly enough of Hannah and her setup; the mice are absolute darlings and she is brilliant at breeding and rearing them. Just a few minutes ago I had Benjamin out because he seemed to be up for a snack. Typical of a young male mouse, he is still scent-marking everything (including, of course, my hand). I haven't put any of them together for breeding yet because I'm not sure what I'd do if I produced a hatful of bucks. It is very tempting though.
Part of the reason I haven't been on the forum for a while is family circumstances. My father moved in with me about a year ago and there has been quite a bit of sorting out and general caring-type stuff going on which has taken up a lot of my spare time. I've also (more recently) been doing a complete revamp of my office/workshop. Partly because of this, plus scheduling problems with the joiner who has been manufacturing the pieces for my benches, the house has been in absolute turmoil and we are only just beginning to get the contents of my workshop out from the hallway and kitchen and back where they belong! Anyway, it's an all-male household at the moment so there isn't any wife or partner to be driven mad by my antics.
Anyway, I thought I would just post something up to see who was out there and have a quick catch-up.
