It’s Twiglet’s First Birthday: 15 Favourite Photos!

Today, little Twiglet, my tiny spiky baby, turns one!
It’s funny, it feels like he’s been in my life for so much longer that a year – His funny little face looking up at me from under his blankets, or snuggling up with me in front of a movie. He makes me smile when I don’t feel like smiling. He is there waiting for me when I get in, matter what time. He is always in the mood for a cuddle. And we have been on some proper adventures together (I mean, look above, we had a london day trip together and everything!)

I know I sound like a crazy hedgehog lady, but he really is so special – I have made some huge changes in my life in the year I’ve had him, and having him there to snuggle when I don’t feel like talking to anyone has been really special.

Little Twiglet has been in my life since he was 6 weeks old (and I was being sent photos of his tiny face pretty much from the moment he turned 2 weeks old – I was smitten straight away!) – so to celebrate him turning 1, I thought I’d share some of my favourite photos of him – cos he is just so blooming cute!

1. 2.5 weeks old – Twiglet was still living with the breeder, and she sent me this gorgeous picture!!

2. One of the first photos I took of him when I got him home at 6 weeks! 🙂

3. Twiglet sleeps in my pocket quite often – on this occasion, I accidentally woke him up and he greeted me with this grumpy face!


4. I LOVE the Innocent Big Knit campaign – perfect fit for a little hedgehog head!

5. The cutest little sleepy face ever!

6. Post-Mamma Mia Press Night snuggles with David!

7. In the Cornish sunshine!

8. London Underground – yes, I was the mad woman who brought a hedgehog out of her bag on the tube! 🙂

9. Visiting the Good Ship Benefit! 🙂

10. Getting ready to jump in the shower, I look around to find this! Ha!

11. “Mum, can I come to Spain with you and David please?!”

12. Hedgehog Modelling!!

13. “Mum, that cake looks a bit like me!” – My little sister made me a hedgehog birthday cake….not sure Twiglet was that convinced…!

14. All settled in Cambridge – Twiglet loves the new flat too!

    OMG he is the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen! I’m not normally a person to want a pet but I could make an exception for a hedgehog!
