Yesterday we bought 2 new additions, Pretzel and Ashley, 2 baby rabbits. I will take a picture to show you, they are so cute... Just leaving them in quiet for a few days while they settle into their new home.
We are having major trauma with our router again, already gone 4 times this morning so if I'm quiet you will know why. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and hope you all have a lovely weekend
