I was given Bear in November 2012 as a belated birthday present (I’ve written more about this here). We think, from Facebook posts of his mum’s owner, that he was possibly born on 10th September 2012!!
So, as he’s just turned 6, I thought I’d share what I’ve learnt about being a cat mum!
August is probably one of my favourite months; mostly because it’s my birthday and I usually take a week off to have some down time! Although this year I managed to get two weeks off due to my brother’s wedding being at the end of the month!
As it’s my 34th birthday next week, and I had to drop the post I was going to put up this week due to a miscommunication, I thought I’d let you know 34 of the things that I’ve learnt in the (nearly) 34 years of being alive!
Having massively got back into Harry Potter recently, I thought I’d share my small (for now) collection with you. This post was inspired by Fiona and you can check out her blog post here.
Well, we’re well over halfway through the year, this sunshine thing is amazing (despite our grass looking decidedly brown now) and July has been pretty awesome to be honest 😀
Before we got our bookcases, I wasn’t able to have scented candles or wax melts burning away, mostly because we only had low surfaces (like our coffee table) and inevitably, Mr Bear would come along and stick his face right in the wax or the flame!!
I last did one of these back in 2016 (you can read the post here) so I thought it was time for a bit of an update!! At the moment I’m using my gorgeous dark green crossbody bag that I picked up from Primark; it was £7 but when I got to the till, it was down to £3 in the sale 😀 I love colour (even though it’s not a colour I’d normally go for) and the beetle detailing on the front.
Before I met J, I was never really into having the latest gadgets and gizmos; 1. Because I could never afford them and 2. I always saw gadgets as a bit gimmicky, something I’d use once and never use again.
Now I’m all about that gadget life, especially ones that make my life easier!
Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the year, isn’t it? This month has gone pretty slowly for me, what about you? I think my biggest thing of June was my back problem.
Being a blogger and maintaining an active presence on Twitter and Instagram, it’s really easy for me to put up photos, tweets and blog posts that show me being awesome and at my best, but sometimes I’m really not. I do try to write more honest Insta captions to go with my pretty photos now, which I hope makes me slightly more relatable (I dunno though, do they? Can someone let me know?)
I’m not perfect by any means though and I happen to have loads of bad habits just like everyone else, so I thought I’d let you in on a few!
