    I want a miniature pig! I’m sure the dogs won’t mind and the cat will get used to it. Bye the way, the end of that video was not safe for work, I nearly squealed out loud when he jumped! I still have tears from the laughter … so glad I clicked over to take a look.

    P.S. I’d try the unicorns on those carrots of yours so that you can get back to some chocolate.

    Haha! I love that you get closer and closer to your dessert in every snapshot. 🙂

  3. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    aww sweetie – hope things start to ease up soon. And that you get to enjoy this wonderful long weekend!

  4. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Ahh piglet video!! Love the play-by-play of you and your dessert, too. I hope you catch a peaceful break soon.

    Man that piggie just DOVE straight into that oatmeal ha! I love the noises. Piggies are what made me stop eating (pig) meat at 9…. I LOVE them so much. I want a tiny one 🙂

  6. Em

    OMG, Hamlet the pig is sooooooooooooo cute and the ending made me laugh out aloud!
    Hope you get some rest and Hannah time over the long weekend.
    *going to watch pig and oatmeal video again….*

    oh ma gaawd, love the photo sequence. Hilarious. Plus how cool is your mum taking all them pics! She must have bene a food blogger in a prev life LOL

    LOve how you’re in a choir. I was in a choir during High School and have always wanted to go back into it. But as you mentioned, I have way too many things goin on, I’m exhausted. hehe I just do the rare wedding singing gig. I mean rare!

    1. Emma

      Whoa! I can picture it now – I bet you kick ass! Do you scrunch your eyes up tight during the slow emotional songs? 😛

    Oh, I do identify with the tiredness. I was so exhausted at midnight mass a couple of years ago that I felt as though someone else was singing with my voice – I was pretty worried that she would get the notes wrong, since I was way over there and not involved in the singing at all. Slightly scary. And when the organist was doing his improvisational thing, I could intermittently hear angelic choirs singing along. (I’m fairly sure they weren’t actual angelic choirs, even if it was Christmas Eve, but I can’t help listening for them in the organ now when I sing there).

  9. Mike

    Oh, mairzy doats and dozy doats and little pigsy doatmeal
    A kiddley doatmeal, too. Wouldn’t you?

    1. Emma

      I was almost going to go here! You’ve got me beat, Mike, once again.

      1. Mike

        Great minds think alike Emma. (Tho’ mine’s starting to get a bit rusty).

    2. Catherine

      Now, I could have sworn that little pigsy tivey. Regional variation?

      (though I think your version is healthier for all concerned, really)

      1. Mike

        They do Catherine, they do, but the modern pigsies are following a more healthy diet. But imagine what they would do if they had the run of Hannah’s house. It would then be little pigsyd choccies.

        1. Catherine

          Or possibly drawt ruffles.

          That’s a relief. I thought I was hallucinating strange poetry, to go with Hannah’s unicorns!

    Dear Hannah,

    Dessert is indeed very important and it looked like you might have been performing brain surgery. Hope you have a better week ahead.

  11. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Curl up in bed, with many books, much chocolate, cups of tea, your splendiferous recent golden syrup nuts, and peanut butter. Don’t come out for at least 3 hours. Sleep. Then do it again 🙂

    (Or failing that, just curl up in bed and get some rest. Have dream unicorns instead of driving unicorns – I sense they might be safer xox)

  12. Fiona

    Oh gorgeous girl x

  13. Emma

    I’m tired too, but I have no reason to be. Although I did this spectacular hop-hop-fall thing while we were biking the other night and as a result now have an awkward giant target-shaped bruise on my bum. Is that reason enough to make me exhausted?

    Oh well, time for another grueling day of lounging about with the cat on my lap!

    I still don’t know what the transit of Venus is. The nerds probably want to take away my cat eye glasses and frumpy decorative sweaters for saying that.

    This tiredness and ‘taking too much on’ malarkey seems to be spreading.

    Freelance writing has a lot going for it.

    Poverty, for one thing, but a lot of time to goof off, pat the dog and enjoy looking at the Shiba Ini puppy live webcam –

    Driving home from NC, I had been in the clock since stupid o’clock with no sleep and about 2 hours from home I started to hallucinate – no joke! I saw a horse driving a backhoe and a person dancing outside of their car, holding onto the door!

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Bebeh squealing piglets are the ultimate cure for stress. I love how he lets out a little squeak each time he braves another step, as if to exclaim “I did it!,” and then “I did it again!,” and then “I just keep doing it, I’m a madman!”

  17. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    Hey Hannah! Hope you have a blessed and restful weekend~you can doooo it! 😀 And those pictures are cute. You look like you’re whispering at your dessert. hah!

  18. Johanna GGG

    I don’t envy your that grueling work schedule but I am glad you are having fun all the while. I don’t see unicorns but I was certain for a moment that I saw a tiger on the bike path that other week – off to watch THE PIGLeet with sylvia – hope it is kid friendly

    1. Johanna GGG

      piggy was very amusing – sylvia’s geogie pig enjoyed watching it (great with a bit of sound of music in the background)

  19. Ricki

    Pig too cute. Dessert pics so funny! Enjoy unicorn. (For real.)
    Over and out. 😀

  20. Hotly Spiced

    What a massive week. You must be so relieved it’s a long weekend. I had a few nights of four hours sleep this week too and it makes me very scatty and forgetful. Here’s hoping the pace will be a little slower for both of us this week. xx

  21. Choc Chip Uru

    Take it slow my friend, I promise you that dessert is not going to run away 😉
    Breathe, relax and tell your dessert you love it with a smile – you deserve a long weekend!


  22. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Matt and I oohed and ahhed over that pig video yesterday, too. 🙂

    So very many things to do…oh, how I can relate. Dear $@^$#*, I can relate. <3

    PS – So the thing about going blind if you look at it is a myth? But how did it hurt?

  23. Catherine

    Loved the dessert concentration! Seems as though you were really savouring. Hope the pace slows down this week? xcat

  24. whisperinggums

    You told your Dad you tried to look at the Transit of Venus? Now you’ve go him worried!

    Oh, and I did love my dessert eating shots – that is my shots of you and your Dad eating desserts.

  25. Fiona

    Sending you sleepy thoughts possibly in exchange for a unicorn or two? Sometimes life is very overwhelming. I totally agree that it’s the people who make it worthwhile. Hope things become a little less hectic! xx

  26. hungryandfrozen

    Feelings are simultaneously the best and the worst, and I never know when they’ll undermine. Glad to hear you have both lovely people and tiny pigs to comfort you! (Seriously, that pig! My heart audibly shattered at the cuteness.)

  27. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    oh! love! I showed my brother that oatmeal pug video… we bonded & are now even closer. if that is even possible. hehe. I’m virusy today. no car crying but I’m NQR. Your blog posts make my face smile.

    Judging by the comments – this piggie is Some Pig. Will watch at home where it’s safe to squeal with laughter.

    On a serious note, as much as I adore unicorns, slightly worried that you are seeing them (possibly because of Venus??) and it make me think you need a holiday. Rest. A Break. Somewhere where you can sleep in, wake up to a hot cup of tea, breath in the fresh air and relax.

    Hoping it got better…will keep catching up xx
