Another baby Locket!










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.

Congratulations Lockets. Your new baby is rather delicious. (Obviously I mean that in a visual rather than taste kind of way)

Very cute baby and unlikely to wake you in the night for the next 6 months demanding milk. How sensible Mrs L! But you can't sniff his head and smooch his rolls of fat!x

Thimbleanna said...

Awww, how cute is Baby Alfie??? Does this mean he'll live outside year round? (Is that a stupid question -- he'd freeze here!) I love your partial blue wall -- it has an old/rustic look to it!

Charlie P said...

Awwwwwww! Alfie's gorgeous :-)
Rabbits make the best pets. That's a rather snazzy custom-built hutch he has there. I bet there's room inside for a plasma screen TV and a hot tub.
Can't wait to see more of him!

Oh, congrats to you all! We have a new baby Cookie too, and one of these days I shall get round to posting a pic of her ...

Oooo he's lovely. I must tell Mr Twigs I NEED a baby Alfie. We used to have some gorgoeus guinea pigs and I miss them.

Alfie is sooo cute he looks very similar to our rabbit...choccie x

joanie said...

Oh Lucy I can't tell you how jealous I am of your new baby. He is gorgeous! Little lops are the BEST bunnies. We had one that thought he was our dog and followed us everywhere. After some heartbreaking bunny funerals I can't get another but they are my favourite pets.
Your hut is genius, I'm so impressed.

Congratulations!! What a gorgeous new member of the family!!

Love the hutch...he'll be living in the lap of luxury!

Jackie said...

So does Alfie actually spend any time in the hutch or on your sofa?

Leanne said...

Doing some catch up here. Alfie is just too cute and he has his very own palace to live in.
