I use the pellets but they are really good and I change about every 2 days but they´re still not really messy and the odor control is so good.

Yes, they arrived last night and we´ve had a first good day with sunshine so my sister is happy, she loves the good weather. My mom looks good as well although she looks frailer as she is getting older, she´ll be 87 this year. We´ve got lots of things planned and I´m trying to get as much fitted in as my sister is only here for 10 days but my mom is staying for 3 weeks. Maybe going to Gibraltar tomorrow so I´ll take some photos. Boys are behaving themselves with the new arrivals and they´ve both been making a fuss of them today and they seem ok with these new hoomans especially when they´re bearing craisins lol.

Oh wow...I didn't know they were staying that long. What a nice long visit you'll have together!! It sounds as though your mom gets around pretty good for 87....that is amazing and so great :) My mom's mom (my grandma) is 87 as well and there is no WAY she'd even travel an hour from home...let alone to another country.

I hope you have a wonderful time with your mom and sis and create lots of good memories. Yes for SURE post lots of pictures. Love seeing the pics on here when people travel and of the buns of course.

Glad the boys are handling the new hoomans so well. I can just see how Arch would react. He'd been stomping around like a spoiled child. We shall soon see...my hubby's dad and wife are staying with us this summer so he better get used to it! haha

Jenny - They're oxbow organic pellets, which is the only pelleted litter my shop had. They work well, they're just mushy and I don't know how to deal with them? Also if any happen to get kicked out and then wet, it's kind of a pain to scrape the dried up pellet mush.

Have fun with your family, Chris! Much like Lisa's grandma, my grandma doesn't even travel far from home, so it's great your mom can still get around that well.

Chris, that's so great that your mom gets to stay so long. I hope you guys have lots of fun together. I'm sure you will :) It'll be interesting to see how the bunnies do with new people around for a while. Have they ever been around your rabbits before, or is this the first time?

Have you tried the pine pelleted litter? They don't get mushy, and the pee drains well to the bottom of the pellets. Petsmart and petco will most likely have it(in the cat section), walmart even sometimes has it, or if you have a feed store, they sometimes carry it for horse stalls.

I love having her over here and looking after here and she loves spending time with my friends as they make a fuss over her. One of my Spanish friends met us this morning for breakfast and brought a gorgeous bunch of flowers for her, she was so happy to get them and it makes her feel important as well. We´re going to Gibraltar tomorrow with another of my Spanish friends as he loves going there and speaks really good English so we´ll have a really good time.

I´ll be taking loads of photos...my sister has bought me a new camera so I´ll be breaking it in tomorrow :nod

Wow, your mom is 87?! And traveling to another country?! I don't think most 87 year olds travel that far. :p

Have a fun time at Gibraltar tomorrow! And definitely take pics. I'm so jealous your sister bought you another camera. I need a new camera, lol.

Yes, my mom is still getting around and loves coming over here, she also goes to see my younger brother who lives in Dubai.

Gibraltar was really good today and we all had a great time and got our shopping done. A good job I changed food as the supermarket has now stopped their rabbit supplies.

The weather was gorgeous, very sunny and around 22ºC and everything looks so much better. We got home and then had a party for my friend´s daughter and she put on a good spread with really big grilled prawns, spanish tortilla, cold meats and cheese and a lovely birthday cake so we will all have to starve tomorrow to make up for all we´ve eaten today lol. Buns haven´t been out for long but they are getting a run around now so I´ll be in bed late tonight.

Will post pics tomorrow, have to download from my new camera which is just great.

Sounds fabulous Chris.....that meal had my mouth watering especially with the grilled prawns.

I didn't know you had a brother in Dubai? Wow.....do the states sound as "foreign" as your part of the world (and Dubai and the UK) sound to us?? :) love hearing about places around the globe......

Glad the weather was good. Cant wait to see your pics.

*****BTW....I read a Downton Abbey possible secret about season 4 today in People magazine. Not sure if it's a spoiler or not....but I thought of you and Jenny. Let me kmow if I should say anything or not.............hehe....

Say it! Say it! Well, I guess unless it's depressing and they are killing off someone else important. If they ever kill off Maggie Smith, I'm never watching the show again. I can only handle so many of my favorite characters being eliminated.

Jenny, Maggie Smith signed up for another series so she´s here to stay, thank goodness.

Lisa, I´ve read all the spoilers for series 4 so I don´t think you´ll be spoiling anything for me.

The prawns were fantastic, more like mini lobster, they were so juicy. We were really all so full when we got home last night, no one had breakfast this morning.

Here are the first pics...I´ve resized so I hope they´re the right size for here, apologies if I´ve got it wrong.

Here we are as we are approaching Gibraltar, it is quite impressive if you´ve never seen it before. Shame it wasn´t really clear or you could see Africa across the way.

This is us just arriving at La Línea which is the Spanish frontier town:

Its so pretty there! I can just feel the warm sun and the breeze blowing my hair! I want to be there!
I'm going to try to talk the husband into going to Spain. Maybe my MIL will want to go with us and foot the bill! haha.

I'm liking all the sun you're getting! I hope you're enjoying yourself with your family! Beautiful view of the frontier even if it's really not that big a deal :)

Ok well the spoiler (and then I have to look at your pics Chris!) I read is that the actor that played Matthew Crawley is coming back to play his evil twin. Did you gals hear that? They had him look g more seductive....like darker hair, a goatee, more "evil like" hmmmmm.....what do you think?

Wow chris that is just beautiful! I would love to see that. It reminds me of hearing in Geography/history class about Straight of Gibraltar and rock of Gibraltar.....now I need to google to refresh my memory. Haha....is Gibraltar part of Spain or is it a British area? pardon the stupid questions from an American.......;)

Darn photo bucket....I'll be watching for the picture of all of you!

Lisa, I know the actor who played Matthew has changed dramatically to do his role in the theatre in NY, I hadn´t heard that he was coming back to Downton yet but now you´ll have me looking for it haha.

Here is the photo of my mom, sister and one of my bf´s Moses who everyone thinks is my hubby. it´s so funny now that sometimes it´s easier just to nod instead of explaining everything. We had a great day.

We´re just back from karaoke with him as well and we had dinner afterwards. We laughed so much as one of the guys who sells things and in the street and is from Senegal was there and knows my mom as he´s met her before and was so pleased to see her. I was telling her that we hadn´t seen him for a while as he´d been in Senegal getting married. He was laughing with her and saying that he had but that he wouldn´t mind taking her as his second wife....I then said to my sister I wondered how many cows and sheep he´d give us for her and ´Moses and her couldn´t stop laughing.

All in all, a good few days enjoying the family.
