Guinea Pigs & the accounts keep us busy

The end of each quarter in the year is a busy time for small business owners as we have to submit our BAS reports to the tax office, reconcile the accounts, pay outstanding bills (because everyone else is reconciling as well), pay staff superannuation, and so on...  If you are a small business owner, I'm sure you know what we mean!

It has also been a particularly busy family time with Easter, children's birthdays...and learning to care for two super-cute new family members, Guinea Pigs Marshmallow and Cookies n Cream.

Welcoming the first pets into our family is a big occasion and who could imagine that two tiny creatures would consume so much fussing around time.   Thank you to the RSPCA from where we adopted these loving seven month old sisters. 

If you have read my earlier post about food waste, we now have somewhere to send our fruit and vegetable scraps - with the added bonus that they are 'upcycled' into warm fuzzy cuddles!  I'm feeling inspired also to finally build a small vegie patch to grow some food for the Guinea Pigs... and maybe even the humans in the house too.

Aww.. congratulations on the new cute & fuzzy additions to your family! I bet the kids are loving them too ;) Have fun with the vege patch! It's a lovely time of year to be out in the sunshine!

What a cutie Cookies and Cream is! I've just finished re-reading Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, it's a really good book and it always makes me want to get back into vegetable growing, good luck if you decide to go ahead with it.

Hi Sue - thank you for your comment. I just read about Blackberry Wine on Amazon and I want to read it! I loved Chocolat but hadn't heard of this one. I imagine it would be a beautiful escape.

You'll definitely enjoy Blackberry Wine if you loved Chocolat (me too). Let me know what you think if you read it!
