Let's have a watching party! @Peggy_Riley *pleading face* @spattzzz It might have been porpoise 🤷‍♀️🤣 @spattzzz Fraggle has now done dead rat, dolphin and snake. Snake was impossible to get rid of. @silverpebble I remain unsure about the colour tbh - but it’s much more faded now anyway @silverpebble This is when it was freshly done! I'm not taking off my thermal vest for a photo today! @silverpebble They never usually live on our beach for some reason - I wish they did.

She's not quite the perfect mother.)Fraggle’s feeling broody. She carries this squeaky hippo around all day, washes it, and then tucks it in next to he… by one, the snowflakes floated down on to his warm snout, and melted. “So that’s how it works,” thought Moomint…
Retweeted by Katherine May-hem ☠️Hmm. Fraggle just rolled in a dead rat on the beach. If this is rodent karma, I don’t like it. @Bohemiangirl A Peter’s Yard cracker :) @reachoutfreedom 😱😱😱 I screamedDuring the rescue, he ran up the inside of my dressing gown which was...yeah. Lucky he’s cute. @Joy_Hfds Er, yeah. I’m not sure I was very effective on the front!Just rescued this little warrior.
