Spring is here and it has finally stopped raining! To celebrate this special occasion the critters played hide-and-seek in the garden for five hours straight! Xavier was the outstanding winner, it turns out he's quite the hide-and-seek expert despite his conspicuously striking stripes.
It's been raining for days at the Herbert House. Alice the alpaca tried to lead an expedition out into the rain for a puddle stomping adventure. Willis refused to go, using every excuse imaginable, but soon it became clear that Willis (despite being a turtle) has a fear of rain!
Alice then took it upon herself to help Willis get over his fear which resulted in many hours standing on the balcony watching the rain.
1. Draw a picture of somewhere hot and visualise yourself into the scene (WARNING: Norris found the desert too hot; he started overheating and suffering from mild dehydration). He recommends a tropical island with a comfortable hammock and plenty of coconuts.
2. Have a beanie party with your friends! If you've never been to a beanie party, Norris suggests reading his guide to a bonza beanie party which he's hoping to get published before the end of winter.
3. Start a new knitting project. You can never have too many scarves! A warm coloured yarn is best, simply looking at the colour will warm you up. Fun knitting-needles is also a plus, Norris particularly likes clear ones with glitter inside.
4. Spontaneously give a friend a gift! This will leave you both with a warm-fuzzy feeling that lasts for hours! To increase the warm-fuzzy feeling be sure to give your friend something you made yourself (a knitted scarf is perfect!).
5. Eat as many English muffins as possibly! Ideally they should be homemade by an awesome housemate (in the absence of an awesome housemate they can be store bought but the warming effect may be slightly diminished).
Norris hopes he's helped warm up your winter days!
