Getting a pet

Just wanted to say - I got hamsters!  I'd been thinking about a getting a pet for a little while but I was limited in my options because of being in a flat.  However I decided last week that I wanted hamsters - more precisely dwarf hamsters.  I contacted the local hamster breeder, made arrangements with her, and bought all the necessary equipment.

Today, Rob and I went to the breeder's house to choose my hamsters.  I chose two males.  They are Winter White Russian hamsters and I chose a pair that had one white and one dark coloured hamsters.

They are called Zeus and Odin.  Zeus (the white hamster) is a bit more active than Odin and likes running on the wheel.

I'm looking forward to them getting used to me and learning more about them.

All settled in

Firstly, hello.  Starting my new job and moving has seen me rather busier than I expected so I haven't been around recently.  I've done so much in the last few weeks that it may take a couple of blog posts to talk about it all.

As I mentioned a while ago, I was moving to Sheffield for my new job and... well... I'm settled in my lovely new flat now and getting used to my job.

The van is completely full ready to move me to Sheffield

My flat now I am properly unpacked 
  Moving was fun but I am glad I have everything unpacked now and it is feeling like home.
