Smile! Herbert Says So.

Having heard some bad news yesterday, I was instantly on the lookout for something/someone/a certain hedgehog, to cheer me up.

Herbert did just the job. He's so funny, especially on a morning when he's either one extreme or the other - crazy wriggly or snoozy tired. Luckily for me, yesterday was a wriggly day. As I was laying on the sofa, he crawled all over the place; at one point coming right up to my face to sniff a 'hello' (or at least, in my imagination). He's now six months old and a lot more comfortable with us picking him up, 'stroking' him and even having a DSLR pointed in his face (without the flash, obviously). He's such a perfect pet.

Within a couple of minutes my mood was lifted. Its days like that that make you appreciate everything you have around you, be it animals or people. As sad as these things are, it is always a good reminder to live everyday to the fullest, not to dwell on the bad but carry on and look at all the good you already have, normally thats right in front of your face.
I also know its been a while since I updated Herbert's progress, so here are a couple of my favourite photos that I thought I'd share with you.

I hope he puts a smile on some of your faces as much as he does mine :)
