This week has been a bit of a dull one. Not only have the Mice found themselves with 5,995 miles back between them again, but we've also all been sick. And while the idea of being snuggled at home is nice in theory, when you have a kickass case of the flu with a bone-shaking cough, it's less pleasant. So if it's possible, we're even happier than usual to see the back of this week, very much looking forward to feeling better, and hoping beyond hope that we can manage to squeeze in at least a glimmer of fun this weekend.

And that's that for another week!
Lots of love,
