Default Hi from a prospective hoggie owner :-)

Hi all!

I'm a 36 year old Mum of two, my Daughter, Bronnie was 13 in August and my Son, Euan was 10 in July.

We live together with my Fiance (and full-time carer) Simon in a small village outside Cannock.

I have casually looked at getting a hoggie for about 4 years now, but an empty viv, vacated by my dearly beloved but departed bearded dragon, has given me more of an inclination to start thoroughly researching into getting a hoggie.

I like to socialise on many forums, Facebook and Google+ to pass away the time, when I am not fit enough to do anything other than sit or lie down in my chair/bed. (riser-recliner chair in the day, propped up at 45 in bed at night) However, on really good days, I like to design and create greeting cards and jewellery, for the special occasions of my family and friends.

99% of the time, I fair better in the evening than I do during the day, so a nocturnal pet would be ideal for me.

I will search the forum, for the information that I still require, and will ask questions if they have not already been asked.

I look forward to meeting you in due course.

Kind regards,

Just wanted to welcome you to the group. I am a mom of two as well and I am 37. My son is 11 and my daughter is 17. I am stateside in VA but I thought if you were interested or wanted to chit chat you could PM me on here or even friend me on Facebook. If you are interested in FB then I'll PM you my full name so you can find me on there. I work full time and I am pretty busy with my kids and their school but if you ever needed to talk or needed to vent about kid issues then you could. Just an offer. Maybe you will find that a Hedgie is the perfect companion for you. I know I was very happy to get Milo and although cleaning a poopy wheel daily isn't he highlight of my day his sweet face always makes it worth it.

Hi hunny,

If you don't mind, I will pm you and take you up on that offer. I don't have any friends in the real world, so I love making friends with people online, it's my only "Social Life" heheh

Will go along and pm you right now.

Kind regards,

No problem, I wouldn't have offered if I didn't mean it. I have all kinds of pictures posted on my FB so you can see my family and that includes Milo. Hope all is well.

Welcome to the forum! My girl Thistle has made a great companion for me, she happens to be a cuddler so we sit and cuddle together in the evenings while I'm working on my computer or watching tv. The poop is the biggest down side Good luck on your search! I don't have kids, but I'm also on FB and in my 30s if you are interested in connecting
