With all the bombings and nastiness going on last week, I was trying to think of the loveliest thing that could happen to someone...

You come in from a long day at work, feeling a bit tired, in need of a cwtch and a cup of tea. You open your front door to be greeted by a donkey with an '80s haircut. You sit on his back and he carries you into the lounge, dropping you off in your favourite chair and keeping you company while he has a bit of a bray and munches his tea-time carrot.

Two angora bunnies hop over to you and invite you to rest one foot on each of their backs, so you can bury your toes into their fluffiness. Some guinea pigs scurry up and sit on your lap, making a lovely bubbly squeaky noise. A gang of kittens start climbing up the curtains to make you laugh.

You were just thinking about a nice cuppa, when in waddles a grumpy old tortoise, with a lovely cup of green tea balanced on his shell. It's taken him a while to get from the kitchen, so it's cooled down to just the perfect temperature to drink.

After all this furriness, you're feeling a bit tired. An energetic ostrich bounds over to your chair and rushes you upstairs to your bed, where 100 fat chinchillas will be waiting to snuzzle up all around you while you snooze.


  1. Ha ha ha ha! That fat chinchilla is very funny. The perfect end to a perfect-end-of-a-day I'd say.

  2. oooh, that is my idea of hell. I only like animals when they are OUTSIDE!!!

    (the fat chinchilla did make me chortle though)

  3. I'm sneezing just thinking about all that furriness.
