6 Weeks with Maui

It's been almost 7 weeks now since the day we collected Maui and brought her to her forever home. The last time I had a pet I was living with my mum and I really didn't take much of the responsibility when it came to the litter cleaning and the feeding so going from not having any pets for a few years to having one where I was the mum of the house was a bit of an adjustment.

The first few weeks we had some problems with her peeing on everything, it was very frustrating as I couldn't figure out what was making her do this as she didn't do it in her previous home, it was only really my bed and the couch she would pee on but after deep cleaning it all a thousand times each and spraying lemon disinfectant all over the areas it finally stopped!

Maui and Sophia:
The bond these girls have is the best, for a couple of weeks at the beginning I think that Sophia was a little bit too much for Maui, she was just full of excitement after wanting a kitten for so long she just wanted to play with her all the time. Even now whenever Sophia is asleep or isn't in the house the poor cat does nothing but sleep (I feel ya hun).

On a serious note I had no idea how much my life would change with having her, I know that sounds a bit dramatic but I don't even know what I used to before having her when Soph would go to bed, I can't imagine not having her massive cuddles and cute purring first thing in the morning, she has 100% become such a massive part of our little family, and I've said this before but I'm so excited to watch Soph and her grow up together.

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…
