Woot, came back from boyfriend just in time. If I had still been there, it would've been at least 2 weeks before I could go back home. Reason?
Badgers have buried their sett below the very busy railroad track Den Bosch - Eindhoven, which is the gateway to the north and a very busy route - the trains now will not ride for at least a week via this section.

I love animals, it's sad that these poor creatures have no place to live anymore. This is not the first case this year - at a not-so-busy track in Friesland train traffic is now halted until June - but for the busybusy Den Bosch - Eindhoven route this is not an option.

The Badgers my European cousins...:lol:


Bonny I was extremely influenced by Bosch in my early works, he and Roger Dean were my biggest influences...Never got to stand in front of a Bosch myself.

Minor tragedy at the inlaws. Their daughters, now 10 and 12, had 2 young rabbits they were both very fond of. BF and I looked after them a few times.
Unfortunately one of the bunnies got ill about two months ago and died very suddenly. The girls were upset. The bunny breeder that sold them to the family felt so sorry for the girls, that she gave them a gorgeous prize-winning bunny, Milo. And on top of being gorgeous and prize-winning, the new bunny also loved cuddling, so the nieces spent hours holding and petting him. It's rare for bunnies to allow that.

Thing was, Milo was male and his would-be companion female, so he had to be castrated. Which he did not like one little bit, he had to be cared for at home and stay warm and dry and stuff. Then he got an abcess, so he was needing antibiotics. My sister-in-law had to inject them.

This weekend I got to meet the new bunny. I didn't hold him, but he did let me pet his soft nose. Such a charmer.
Sunday happened to be the birthday of the other bun, and Monday the birthday of Milo. The nieces apped us asking to congratulate them with their birthday (we couldn't miss it, it was on all the calendars)
I had crocheted 2 look-a-likes of the dead bunny to give to the girls, which they appreciated. The oldest, who owned the dead bunny, was still struck and didn't want to go to her aunt's birthday so she could spend more time with them.

On Monday we received pictures of the birthday bunnies - complete with bunny cake, little presents (chill teepees) and of course party hats. Tuesday afternoon, mom gives Milo the next antibiotics shot - and Milo snuffs it.

The girls and their mother are very much in shock - according to the vet it was a heart attack due to all the medical treatments, so not her fault, but it must be horrible to watch your daughter's beloved pet die in your hands right after you gave it its medicine.

On one hand I try to be rational but my heart bleeds for the girls.

In bunbun news my sister-in-law bought another bunny, primarily to aid the kids through the mourning process (the youngest is the biggest bunny fan and was there when Milo died, the oldest was the owner of both dead bunnies).

The new bunny is 12 weeks old, cute, brown and called Mowi.

Oh wow, a tale to test the ages! Make us proud, Grey!

Yesterrday I had a wild night - woke up at 6 AM because my dad said good morning to me - except he didn't, he was where most clever people are at that time, in bed. So I was awake and shortly after noticed my duvet had really sunk low in the inen, so I sat up straight in bed to put it back - and thud my head really hard on one of the Tomado shelves. Had a headache for most of the day, am feeling better now but should keep my fingers away from the sore spot.

I remember doing that as a child on holiday. I was in the top bunk and the space between it and the ceiling was very narrow. When I woke up in the morning I sat up as though I was still at home and bang.

Funny, I did the exact same thing when I went to London in 1999 with my father and sister.

How's the new bunny?

I was almost too afraid to ask.

Haven't heard anything about dead bunnies, so I guess that's good. I understood Mowi fell asleep in the little pup tent that was gifted to Milo the day before his demise, and that it was apparently a very cute sight. But I didn't see the video. :(
