This week has been..........

Well this week has been a roller-coaster ride I can tell you. Looking at houses and finding the perfect one only to be told it has been taken away and they have found someone else.

I started at a new job Friday, it's nothing permanent at the moment but it gets me out and about, Juno free. It's a lovely cafĂ© in town and everyone there is so warm and welcoming. If you are in Burnham pop in and say hello.

Mr White's tank has had a makeover and now looks sparkly and clean. He looks so happy.

So, I've been thinking that seeing as though there is about 9 weeks until Christmas, I need to start making some resolutions and must do's for Autumn/ Winter.

These include -

  • At least 80% of Christmas is to be home-made - As we don't have a lot of pennies at the mo, also I think it's more personal to receive a gift that someone has taken the time and effort to make.

  • To get my first tattoo - I was thinking either something like this on my leg as I love Studio Ghibli  and this was the first film I saw of their's. Also I have a thing with black cats, it will represent Kiri and Stewie, my two old cats that I have been brought up with.

  • Broaden my horizons - I've been just in a circle of watching Breaking bad, CBeebies and crap T.V so I think it's time to get back into some other T.V, Film and documentaries that I have a massive list of to watch.

  • Finally, try and get a presentable and decent looking blog that I'm proud of. Eg - Title, Background, Buttons Etc. 

And most of all try and be smiley and happy. I'm on anti- depressants at the moment as I have been feeling down and lost. I'm working through it and even though mine is a mild form of depression (unrelated to having Juno they think), I'm finding it helpful and re-assuring to read and find other bloggers who are going through this sometimes dark and terrible time. (Sorry I sounded a bit like Dumbledore then)

Just another thing, Juno wants to say a quick hello to everyone out there. 

Hi Guys!

Speak soon

Tuesday Thoughts

Today my thought's and wishes are with the family and of course Malala, the 14 year old Pakistani girl who was shot on her way home from school by the Taliban for speaking out about education for women. 

This act is horrific and to think she was only saying what she believes in makes it worse. Thankfully (and hopefully) she is in the safe hands of the staff of Birmingham hospital, getting the treatment and support she needs. 

So what's next? As a new mother this makes me wonder when is the world going to be safe?

When Juno is Malala's age, can she go out on her own and be safe? Can she be herself with her own opinions and beliefs? 

I hope that the people who did this get their fair punishment. 

Of course I hope that Malala makes a full recovery too. 

Speak soon.

Meet our new addition to the family - Walter White

About 3 weeks ago, I popped into my local pet shop to help Dani pick up her hamster for Eliya. I glanced across the counter and fell in love with a bearded dragon. He was the last one left and the lady in the shop told me he may not be for sale as one of the other dragon's had bitten his tail. 

I immediately told the woman that if he comes available i will have him, and yesterday J brought him home.

We decided on Heisenberg for his name after Breaking Bad, but i call him Walter for short. We have also got quite a few crickets now as pets too.

There hasn't been much happening at the moment, I'm just trying to sort out finding a new house that we feel happy about as the neighbors downstairs are making impossible for us to be like that. I'm also making plans for the future either around Christmas or the New Year which will be exciting and also have a few ideas for future posts if I can pull them off. 

Even though I haven't posted in a while, I'm still out there getting ideas and hoping my concentration levels come back for me to get more involved. 

But enough about me, how's life treating you?

Any exciting news?

Speak soon.
