It just so happens, that in the next block to mummy’s, lives lovely daughter’s best friend, brother and mummy. Fantastic coincidence when the apartment hunting started and been great since the Aranguren Smedley family moved in.
Loving daughter’s best friend’s mummy absolutely loves the tortoises, calling them her “boys”. The kids like them, find them amusing and like to feed them, but their mummy loves to spoil them rotten. She kindly looks after them when mummy and the family, sometimes with the children who like feeding them and watching their silly antics, or by herself when there’s no one about to see just how she indulges them!
Not content with feeding them once a day, fab friend actually went 3 times on one occasion! She chats to them, gives them showers with the hosepipe when it’s really hot and gives them even more food than mummy does – which is saying something.
It’s a lovely feeling though, to have someone you can trust to look after your pets whilst you’re away and know that it’s not a chore and they enjoy spending time with them and the same goes for Txomin and Arthur. She finds it amusing to hear their little feet skipping across the slabs when they hear voices and know who’s come to visit. The only worry is that fab friend becomes their favourite - as they do tend to sulk when mummy comes back and the super spoiling stops!
