"Holiday??? On a beautiful island without me??? No ruddy way! I’ll go camping….that’ll learn them" shouts Potemkin as he loads the Lego VW van

Missing my family! Where is the fricking Architect and the Little One? I can’t find them anywhere…what do you mean they went on holiday and left me with the girl downstairs????

On holiday but missing Potemkin…. We saved this little Gozitan lizard from a watery grave when he fell in the pool. We named him George.

little1directionmix asked: What color is your hedgehog (salt and pepper, etc)

He’s a pinto….but I’m not sure what colour he’d be classified as. I will find out and get back to you!

Potemkin’s First Day at School

It had to happen some time….my little hedgie is growing up. Tomorrow will be Potemkin’s first day at school!

He is spending the day meeting the Natural World Club. He was quite excited by the prospect of being the star attraction….until he had to have a mid week bath!

Whilst this may look bizarre it was the Architect’s answer to the age old question….exactly how fast and how far does a small hedgehog run each night on his wheel???

Thanks to the nifty addition of this bicycle speedometer we can now provide a definitive answer…

This speedometer measures how far Potemkin runs, the time it takes, his average speed and his top speed! Amaze!

Potemkin ran for 3 hours and 31 minutes….he covered a distance of 5.6 miles….his average speed 1.5 mph and top speed was 3.6 mph!!!

I thought it was pretty impressive considering his little legs are about an inch long!!!!

friendlystyles asked: Is potemkin prickly? :) p.s love your blog it's sooo cute ♥

Yes he is! When he’s scared or he is around something unfamiliar he huffs and puts his quills up. But if he’s feeling secure and happy they stay down and he’s stroke-able.

So glad you like his blog. I think he’s pretty cute too….but I’m a bit biased! :)

Potemkin’s Great Balloon Adventure Season Finale

Potemkin felt a sense of peace as the balloons soared into the air. He had decided he liked his new life as a pioneer explorer. “I’ll discover new lands, new people and new animals” he thought to himself. Excitedly he mentally planned renaming all his new discoveries after himself.

Abruptly his balloon vehicle came to a halt. “Oh bugger” thought the intrepid hedgehog “I forgot about the lounge ceiling”…..

Potemkin’s Great Balloon Adventure Part 3

Potemkin’s little heart began to sing as the balloon began to slowly rise. “Up, up and away!” he shouted….but not too loud in case the Architect and the Little One came dashing in to spoil his fun and adventures
