It’s been a while!

Hello my loves! It has been a while!

Quite a lot has happened since my last post! I’d like to think this girl has been doing some serious adulting since we last spoke! So let’s try and rewind… last time we spoke properly I had just left the North and was heading to Bristol! The only thing I knew for absolute certain was where I was going to live (obvs with Will). That was it. I had somewhere to live but not a lot else!

I was feeling pretty crappy because I’d hurt my foot (no idea how but it turns out it was quite badly hurt which resulted in a 5hr round trip from the doctors surgery to A&E several weeks later) We popped over to France to see Will’s family last weekend! We managed to nab a sofa which was excellent! Overall it’s been quite hectic. On a plus note I’ve pimped by crutches so to speak…

Oh and I might have failed to mention that I have got a job in central bristol as a legal recruiter and I couldn’t be any happier?

I mean I’ve been one lucky girl because I had been told by Will and my Mum to not be disheartened until I have at least applied for 30+ jobs. You can imagine their faces when I get an interview for the first job I applied for 30 mins after applying, get a call back and secure a job to start in just under a months time!

Yes, I’m blooming proud of myself!

In other news the house is coming together rather nicely! the floor is down, furniture has been bought and the sofa is arriving on Wednesday! It’s looking so much more homely downstairs and soon we will not be confined to spending our time in the bedroom! I’m really looking forward to watching OITNB on that dreamy sofa come Wednesday night!

I also popped back home to Guernsey for a week a little while back! I had an absolutely lovely time and we had the nicest afternoon tea (it was served on a mini picnic bench!!!)

see! wasn’t it adorable! I basically just spent the whole week eating…

On a much sadder note my beloved Fizzy finally went to Kitty-Cat heaven, it was awfully upsetting as she has been a part of my life for over 17 years! Everyone was devastated. In some ways I still cannot quite believe she has gone!

There’s definitely been some ups and well as downs as of late! However it’s on to a new chapter! I just had to include the amazing Banksy EU piece that we saw on our way to France whilst driving through Dover! I have no idea how he get away with that!!!

So yeah that’s a brief update! I’m rather hungry and need to now hobble down the stairs! Until next time ❤

Cat personalities

If you’ve happened to stumble across this out of the blue then you are probably thinking what on earth is this girl chatting?

Well I feel like I am allowed to talk about cats, well because I own two and after living with them for the majority of my life… I have learnt one or two or twenty things about these sassy natured creatures!

So let’s get meowving

This is Bella. She is a show off. Let me enlighten you with the knowledge that cats are show offs.
I’m trying to think of a way to politely compare a cat to a human but I doubt I’ll manage that so let’s just be brutally honest. Well in my humble opinion Bella reminds me of those girls that strut their stuff on the beach, in clubs, shopping… Basically EVERYWHERE! Y’know the ones that think they look blooming fantastic and want to show off their bod and couldn’t give two hoots about what anyone thought of them? Well that my friends is Bella.

She’s vain. She’ll look at her reflection in anything that is available. She will lie down and just stare at the furry goddess looking back. She’ll bat those green eyes and kink that killer strong tail and will sassily make her way towards you.

She will always make her presence known. When we have visitors she will attempt to distract them all with her beauty. She’ll flop in the centre of the carpet and flash that golden tummy at them in an attempt to seduce them. Whenever someone new comes along Bell is never far away!

She likes her routine. If one single thing changes she’ll make it clear that it is most certainly not ok. For example I simply moved her water bowl about 2 cm away from its original place and the sasspot refuses to drink from it. Bella only proceeded to drink from said bowl once it was put back in its original place. Talk about fussy!!!

Bell craves attention. All cats want and need attention! If I get waylaid or side tracker for one minute which draws my attention away from my beloved tabby I’ll know about it. Bell will proceed to interrupt whatever I was doing and would very much make her presence known and would make it all about her. After all who really enjoys scrap booking without the help of a fur ball who is actually adding to the time it takes to get the job done…

Bell gets jealous. If I put anything on my lap that isn’t Bell she will not be pleased. She will continue to tap, claw and pick till she gets her own way. In actual fact I’m being attacked right now because I’m not paying her enough attention because of this blog post…

A particular favourite of Bell’s is to sit on the pillow behind you and tap away till you pay attention. Don’t give in to their demanding ways even if they look at you with big kitty cat eyes. Don’t fall for it!

Cats do what they want, when they want. They will not consult you first to ask if it’s ok… Prime example^

FYI you do not control cats… They control you!!!

Cats LOVE comfort. They are so high maintenance. They do not want to sit on a hard chair when there is a lovely blanketed chair opposite to them. This means there are often races between you and your moggy as to who can get there the quickest and claim the most coveted spot!

Cats also get hangry.  If you forget to put down another pouch at the respective hour… You soon know about it.

But most of all.

They just want to be loved and hold hands. Isn’t that what being a cat parent is all about?!
