I got a Kitten!

On Saturday, once I had finished work at 4, I headed off to pick up Maui. When we got there she was fast asleep and obviously wasn't expecting to be disturbed and taken away. We put her little cat box on my knee in the front of the car and she cried all the way home, I felt so bad!

We decided to get her one day early as I knew that Sophia wasn't going to be coming back home from my mums house until Sunday afternoon, so it was gonna give her some time to settle into the house and learn where everything is before there was going to be a little toddler following her everywhere she goes.

Once she got in the house and had a sniff around she was the cuddliest little kitten ever, I was so surprised at how much she wanted to sleep, I was expecting a lot more play time. Since it was the first night I took all her things into my bedroom (litter tray and food) and closed the door so that she didn't have the roam of the house in the middle of the night. Everything was going great until she wanted to explore the bedroom and had her first little accident in a box at the side of  my bed that contains a spare pillow (eye roll).

I finished work at 2pm on Sunday and went off to my Nana's house to pick up Sophia, Ruairi was off work on Sunday so he had sat in my house with Maui while I done my shift, he decided to come with me to my Nana's house to pick her up which meant leaving Maui in the house on her own for the first time (she probably slept the whole time).We brought Sophia back to the house and she was so excited to find a little ball of ginger fur sleeping on the couch. For the first hour they got along pretty well  but as you can imagine, for a 3 year old it must be very exciting to have a little cat in the house and as it is something new she was a little bit too much for Maui, so she was a little scared at times, but luckily for Maui bedtime will always come at 7pm and she'll get to chill!

I'm so excited to have her as part of my little family and I can't wait to watch her grow up with Sophia and I hope as time goes on they will have a cool little friendship.

Going Dairy Free.

Quick disclaimer for this post, all information has come from my own research and advice from my doctor. There are photos on this post that show my skin when my acne was pretty bad so if that's something that could be uncomfortable then maybe this post isn't for you.

In around May 2017 I had decided that enough was enough when it came to my skin, I was sick of not being able to wear t-shirts or anything that showed off my shoulders/back, covering myself up all the time especially on warmer days wasn't ideal and my confidence was at a low. I had done some of my own research and found a lot of videos and articles that linked acne to dairy products, there was so many youtube videos which showed how much people's skin cleared up after they cut dairy out of their diet. I sat on it for a few days and continued to do research until I decided to just go for it, I ordered a big food shop to the house with nothing that contained dairy, I've found new butters and milks that I…

The Week off

Last week while I was working I was thinking that I definitely had a holiday coming soon but I had completely forgotten about it, so you can imagine my surprise when I was told that my holiday was actually this week! I wish I could say I've been super productive, I did originally plan to decorate my bedroom but with the time off being quite last minute I didn't want to hurry around and get everything I needed for decorating when I could actually just relax for once.

Monday to Friday were pretty standard, Sophia still had nursery so it was quite odd having time to just chill out and not be getting ready to leave for work, I also tried to make time for friends that I don't get to see that often which was quite lovely. After nursery on Friday my mum came through to pick Sophia up and take her away for the weekend, so it was even more weird not having to wake up super early on Saturday for either work or Soph.

Last night Ruairi and I had a wedding reception to go to with some f…

A look back on October

Sophia has been put to bed, the housework has been partially done and I've had a long day so it's finally time for me to sit down and talk to myself on here!

Another month crossed off of 2017, October was a good one! A wee holiday from work, lots of time with Sophia and HALLOWEEN! I wish I had lots of stories for each week of the month but life hasn't been that exciting really, I think the main reason I've enjoyed it so much is probably just because it has been nice and quiet and it is nice sometimes to just not have anything big going on. I'm loving the darker nights, warmer clothes and all the hot drinks I can have whenever I like.

Last Saturday after working a 9 hour shift at work I had to quickly get home and ready for a Halloween party with Ruairi and some of his friends and family, sadly with having limited time to get ready, the 10 minute make up was scary enough so I didn't take any photos that night, I went there with the mindset that I'd be leaving…
