“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

Get ready to yell for YELLIES!

Get ready to yell for YELLIES!

Noah was sent his very own pet from YELLIES! just in time to spook him at Halloween. Bo Dangles really is a spooky little pet that creeps or shoots around depending on how loudly you talk to him. It's really fun and clever. Noah loved it! They are great toys for this time of year.  VIEW the POST

A Shopping list to help you prepare for a new kitten

Bringing home a kitten can be a wonderful experience. Cats make great pets for homes where people cannot dedicate too much time to their pets. Cats are extremely low maintenance pets to have. But before you do get your kitten, you need to get a bit of shopping done to get things just right. From kitty litter to branded cat medicine, here is the shopping list that covers it all.VIEW the POST

Common dog behavioural problems and how to cope

Dogs are man’s best friend, but they don’t always make our life easier. Well-behaved dogs are a pleasure to have around, but badly-behaved dogs can be a real nightmare. We have a dog next door that constantly barks when the owners are out, it barks all day and evening. Sadly, humans cause most dog behavioural problems, so before you introduce a puppy to your family, check out the following common canine behavioral problems and find out how to avoid them.

Snoopy just keeps on getting infections #Cockerspaniel

Snoopy just keeps on getting infections #Cockerspaniel

Poor little Snoopy: you may remember last year he had an aural ablation operation, which basically removes his inner ear canals. This means that Snoopy can no longer hear normally, more a muffled and distorted noise. We went down this route to stop the ear infections that occurred every few months or so. Well, it hasn't! To put a long story short. VIEW the POST

Looking for a little balance and peace in your life? Adopt a pet!

Looking for a little balance and peace in your life? Adopt a pet!

Sometimes the everyday events in our lives bring more chaos than we’d like to deal with. It could be the breakup of a long-standing relationship or it could be stress on the job. Perhaps the kids have all left for college or got married and overnight, the nest is empty. As you look at the four walls around you, you begin wondering what if! Although there are no major crises you are dealing with, you are just walking a tightrope on your own, having lost your balancing pole, that person or thing in your life that always gave you direction. Perhaps it’s time to adopt a pet. They make better companions than most people you know, are loyal and not nearly as needy as your last partner. Why not?VIEW the POST

Top tips on keeping your pets parasite free this Summer #furryfamily

If you are anything like me you love your pets as if they were your children. My three furries are just that, they are part of our big decisions and they get lots of love. Unconditionally. A part of this love and care comes responsibility, as with anything, and we make sure that the dogs and cat get the appropriate medical care to ensure they are protected against parasites. Those nasty parasites can make it onto furniture around the home and onto us humans. Yuck!
