I thought you might like a little update on the snails ! You may remember, back at the start of September, Pierre adopted a pet snail.
I thought it would be a short-lived fad and he'd let it go after a week or so but almost two months later, he's still just as fascinated. The first thing he does when he gets home from school is run off to collect his snail jar and every time I'm chopping vegetables, he reminds me to save some peelings for them. You read that right, them ... he's got several now !
Erm, yes, he really is stroking it ... and the worst thing is, the snail actually seems to like it ! Why doesn't he just hide in his shell ?!
Every time we take the dogs out and he sees a new snail, with a different colour or shaped shell, he begs to bring it home to join his friends. I think we're up to six now but that's it, I've said no more !
