This Week This Mice Have Mostly Been...

HK mouse is once again 5995 miles away and the two babies are left teeth chattering and all alone in London Towers - boo hoo...

We're all starting to get back to the normality of not eating out every night, working late and feeling the gym guilt but we're now not so sure that normality's for us! We much preferred eating and drinking non stop and generally being a trio of sister social butterflies!

When we haven't been weeping over being minus a Mouse, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Wishing with all our might that we were back in the country wearing gingham quilted jackets and Wellingtons once again! At the end of two manic weeks of sister fun in London, we sought a little R&R at our childhood escape in Devon - Topsham Cottage. We took Friday off work to cut the week short and drag the weekend out, jumped aboard the Devon Express (well a three hour train) and off to the countryside we chugged!


After the initial fish out of water arrival... think arriving at the local pub in leather shorts and Isabel Marant boots... we donned every warm piece of clothing we'd packed and had an amazing country Mouse adventure!

As always, our time away pretty much involved eating as much as humanly possible, drinking gallons of red wine, huddled around a roaring fire and of course we snapped all our goings on to share in a mighty blog post!
Here's what we got up to...

Morning cuppa to get the day going...

 
 
 
Our country hideaway, Topsham Cottage...
 
 
Long walks wrapped up in cosy scarfs and boots in Rabbit Wood...


 
 
And across the cow field...
 
 
And along the river...
 
 
 
Percy the peacock shaking his tail feather...
 
 
Country choo choo track...

 
A trip to beautiful Dartmouth...

 
 
Autumnal magic...

 
Topsham Cottage puss on the look out for bad mice...
 
 
Mice in Boots...

 
Mini and HK mouse cosying it up to stay warm... 


Postcard perfect views...
 

Sister love...


Naughty Ms Chicken greedily pecking up our PG Tips...


A bit of otter spotting in our PJs and Wellies from the back of a baby tractor...
 
 
Snuggling by the fire with a big glasses of Pinot Noir...
 
 
...which fuelled some high kicking and general sillyness in Great Grandpa Mouse's hats... 
 
 
We only wish we could click our heels together and be back down there all together again!
 
Whatever you're up to this weekend we hope it involves lots of food and drink and a little high kicking!
 
Lots of love,
The Mice xxx
