Did that get your attention???
Ok, so it's not a real human baby................
.....but a baby Locket nonetheless.
A snuggly little bunny baby.
He's meant to be a pet for the children, but we all know and accept that he is actually a substitute baby for me seeing as I'm not going to be having any more!!
He is a 10 week old mini-lop and his name is Alfie and he is adorable!
We brought him home today and we are all totally smitten.
And we are rather pleased with our new hutch too.
It used to be our hen house that clever Malcolm Powder built out of our old kitchen table (upside down) and the children's blue IKEA toddler bed.
(seen here about 3-4 summers ago!)
Once we'd scrubbed it clean,
Malcolm Powder came back and converted it into a bunny palace
and he even managed to re-use the hen's nest box by moving it round to the other side
so that Alfie can now go through the old window into a lovely hay-filled hidey-hole.
It's already his favourite spot.
And this is ours
sitting watching him explore!
(but please don't look too closely at our garden wall - we painted it blue last summer - and half an hour later it poured with rain and washed all the paint off! We haven't had the heart to do it again yet - maybe in another couple of years!!)
Now we need to repaint the bunny house as well - especially the inside, as trying to spot a black bunny against a black interior is rather tricky.
