  7. With mice like those I may just be able to get my head around a whole new perspective. Generally meeses and me can't co-exist on the same planet.

  8. Oh how I love them! (Especially Jofus, although I shouldn't have a favourite!) And oh how I love their boat!

    Brilliant Jodie!

  12. I love this last comment! One of my favourite songs from childhood was about the mice living in a windmill in Amsterdam. Love it! Your mice are adorable Jodie. You are one clever chicken! Wendy xx

  19. Awwwww they're so cute!
    It reminds me of when my little brother just started to talk (I'm 6 years older). One of his middle names in Joseph but he couldn't pronounce it, so he would say Jofus instead.

  20. I've had some hair raising rodent adventures of late but I'd welcome those two little critters with open arms. They are adventurous creatures aren't they? I wonder where they will end up x

  21. Jofus and Lally went to sea
    In a charming blue boat,
    With a napkin sail that
    The wind blew free;
    "I do hope you and me,
    Shall stay afloat"
    Said Lally dreaming her favourite mousey dreams,
    While Jofus fed her cheddar ice creams.

    Hither they went and also yon,
    Over the waves of the Melted Brie
    Behind them the moon ahead the sun
    And they went in a boat to sea.

    The Moon-eyed Cat prowled and sniffed
    "I smell lunch" he said to the flowers.
    The flowers would not answer,
    they were adrift
    In earthy, loamy soil amid the grassy hours.

    Jofus and Lally sailed away and still they sail
    Through mousey dreams of cheese and bacon rinds
    While their boat is carried by the Friendly Whale
    And they sleep amid Jodie's fabric of all kinds.

  23. I love these little guys. I had to laugh when I looked at them. My daughter who is now 22 used to have pretend mousies who she visited with regularly when she was about 3. Thanks for the Mousies!

  40. Super super cute. Think how cute they would be staged for illustration in a child's book. I'm not a rodent lover (having battled them once at our house) but these are sooo darn cute.

    ReplyDelete
  41. These are too cute (unlike the real ones which I have a pathological fear of especially if they are small and black and living in our house!!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Holy Cow Woman! Do you ever stop??? They're ADORABLE!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Too cute, Jodie!

    Love the photo shoot too... it's wonderful to see the little couple in their natural habitat!

    Hugs! Vikki :-)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh, you have done it again Jodie - they are fab..but where's the cheese?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh my word, how fab are these, they remind me of 'The Fingerbobs' . It was one of my fav childrens programmes, here's the link http://www.thechestnut.com/finger.htm
