Feel Good Factor



I saw this on the news yesterday. They hatched out in an incubator. They are Giant Africa Tortoises, which can live up to 160 years. They've been born in a wildlife park in Keswick in the Lake District and their mum is called Margaret....

  1. I think Margaret is a wonderful name for a Tortoise. How cute are those babies?

    1. Apparently, they've been hoping for babies for a while and think the weather this summer has made it happen. A lovely story :o)

  6. How wonderful!! I have just been catching up on your news from Richmond Park - very interesting and pretty too - and Poppy's disgraceful news too, she really is the end isn't she! I love that Teddy feels that he has to come and let you know when she is doing something wrong, he is probably worried about her being OK. I know two dogs, one who is prone to get into scrapes and the other isn't so much and the other will come and get you and worry when the naughtier one is in trouble! Amazing how they do it isn't it. xx

    1. She has been more naughty than usual this week, I am hoping it's weather related! Richmond was super, well worth a visit. Hope things have calmed down a bit for you xx

    2. Still not so good sadly, but it is what it is, and will take some time. Thank you for asking though, it is very kind of you especially when I know that you have your own troubles too. xx

    1. They are real sweetie pies, aren't they? I wonder how long they ride on their mum's shells for? x

  9. Oh that is so sweet, aren't they wonderful little things and it's incredible to think that they will quite possibly outlive all their keepers

    1. Isn't it lovely? I wonder what they will see in their lifetimes and how the world will be in 160 years time.

  10. Definitely what the news needs. Even OB is getting stressed about Ebola, asking if he should be worried on his Residential thing all next week. He's not usually that news savvy! xx

    1. Too much scare mongering in the press as usual. I wish the news would end on a happy note. I give up watching/ listening to it most of the time. x

  12. Bollocks - I said I wouldn't comment on anyone who vetted their contributions, forgetting that you were one. This is my final comment on your blog. Print this if you dare, or are willing to explain why I don't comment here any more.
