As you know I love to declutter, and most of the things that leave our home go to charity.
(I am hoping to share some pictures of our home very soon!)
We usually drop off our donations once a week, and the village is quite a long walk away. In this rainy weather there have been a lot of snails on the path, so Emily has been picking them all up and gently placing them in the grass to keep them safe.
We have been talking a lot about how we each play a part in repairing the world, so when we spotted a baby hedgehog in our garden in the middle of the day we knew he needed our help.
After talking to various hedgehog-hospitals we decided that helping this sweet little man was something we would be able to do. We named him Julius.
Julius was in pretty bad shape, hungry, thirsty and covered in fly eggs, – it wasn’t pretty.
We gave him a gentle bath and brushed all the eggs out of between his spikes.
After a healthy meal of boiled chicken and a big drink Julius felt much better.
When we were sure that he was fine we waited until night-time to release him into an overgrown corner of our garden. (There are a lot of those..)
We love seeing him in the garden from time to time, and while it might of course not always be the same hedgehog it sure is fun to pretend.
Today Georgie’s lovely speech therapist mentioned that Georgie shows no signs of being autistic, which has encouraged us to decide to go forward with his BAER-test, a special hearing test performed under general anaesthetic.
While we are still waiting for the exact date of the test I would love to hear your best tips for hospital stays with little ones!
Have a lovely day!
