    my uni really does take the biscuit sometimes :facepalm:

    i emailed them my evidence, persoanl statement and form for extenuating circumstances.
    they emailed me today to ask me to send them my evidence as i said there was some.

    so i replied saying i had already sent it, and attatched it to the email again, and they got it.

    they blates just didnt use their eyes, as i deffinately attatched all 3 documents!

    im never gonna find out if i have EC it this rate!

    The weird part is they knew I had nothing to do and yet still told me off for it XD I still had to show up for some lectures which meant 9-4 days with nothing to do... You know you're desperate when you're reading the Sex advice column in the Guardian :K:
    Ahah :giggle:

    That's what I find funny about everything they still tell you to go in when you've got nothing to do, then they tell you off for going in lessons. :P

    Elliott's a neutered male, and the others are both female. There's pretty much no bad smells at all with mines - I use hemp in their cage, which is meant to be better than wood shavings or paper in terms of smell, and I only need to clean them out once a week. Elliott poops all over the place when I take him for a run about in the bath because he's still a bit nervous, but Nutmeg's fine with it (Grace is the most shy, so I'm leaving off trying to handle her for now).

    Do you feed yours mealworms? I think they're the most yicky thing I have to deal with, but the mice love them! Do yours get any treats they particularly like? I'm trying to find a good range of things they'll enjoy (preferably healthy ones). So far their favourites are mealworms, malt paste, peanut butter and flaxseed.
    I did wonder with the name Elliott....but he's neutered so that explains things!

    Where do you get the hemp from? I'm using woodshavings at the moment, but I'm all for improving the time between clean-outs!

    I give my gerbil dried mealworms (I assume you mean dried....or do you mean live?!:eek:) and yes they aren't very nice! They really smell. I haven't given the mice any yet because when I first got them I gave them some millet seed (they love it if you give it to them as a whole head...I think it's like the mouse version of a donut!) and they got diarrhoea, so I thought I'd give it a while before I tried anything else that was new....but I think that time has come!

    Mine are called Lola and Bambi I was sure Bambi was a runt because she was so tiny, but she's nearly caught up with Lola now! She's a champagne tan (if you google it there's a good picture) but it's sort of pinky grey, with an orange belly. I'm still trying to work out what Lola's official colour is, it's a sort of ginger and white banded. What colours are yours?

    I was lucky with mine in the sense that we got them from a new little pet shop that has opened here, and the young guy who runs it wanted to find small local breeders, so the mice were already tame when I got them. Bambi still gets a bit nervous, but she soon calms down. I think it's great that you rescued yours, I would have done the same had there been any near me.
    Zooplus - it's a pretty good online pet shop. The hemp might seem expensive, but trust me it'll last you for months - comes in a massive bag. My mice really like it, as if you do a thick layer it's really good for tunnelling, and for some reason they like just carrying bits of it about the cage too. There are some good toys on that site too.

    Yeah I use dried ones - much more practical, and less wriggly! I give them millet too and haven't had any problems with it - maybe give them a little bit at a time next time? It could also be they were just stressed at the time as well, I've heard they dislike moving house about as much as humans do.

    Show pictures!!! I don't know the official names for my ones' colours, but one is ginger and the other two are brown-and-white cow coloured. You can see some kinda crappy photos of them here - I need to take more pictures now they're less shy. Grace is much smaller than the other two, but we don't know if it's just genetics or cos she was probably taken away from her mum too soon. She's also really speedy, and really shy, so I think it's gonna take a while to tame her!

    That's great that you got them from a good breeder - I've heard that if you get them from Pets at Home then half the time the females have been kept together with the males and come home with you pregnant! I'm really glad I was able to get mines from a rescue - the woman who runs it is lovely and we've been emailing each other a lot with questions and advice and stuff.

    Hey guys!

    Has anyone in here felt like.. They don't go outside or have many friends.. I've felt rather anaemic over the summer holidays, I haven't spoken to many people, perhaps 3 or 4 :\ on an average day I would just usually go College, do work talk to friends and study for a while, then go home and just.. do nothing, yeah I'll read because it's something I enjoy..

    Why do I feel like this, meh :ashamed2:

    Managed to get my accommodation mostly sorted today and just 12 days left until I move in. I seem to be feeling better recently, waking up early without an alarm (far better than a few weeks ago when an alarm didn't even help ) and not spending as much time in bed.

    How are others? :grouphugs:

    Huzzah! Although I went to bed at 4:00 and got up at 12 so it looks like you're much further ahead than I I got rush hour commuting to deal with as well.

    Ehhh okay, went to the library to scan my uni photo in so that's all done! But i'm in a weird jittery state where little things are concerning me :hmpf:

    You're moving out? How did your parents take that? They alright with it? My parents were like "It's Oxford or London and if you stay in London, you are LIVING AT HOME" :afraid: Good job persuading your parents there - well done
