Last year I gave my home to this little princess. Someone was just giving her away on Gumtree. The whole thing was super sketchy and I'm so pleased that I was able to rescue her! She lived on an awful council estate in a house full of dogs and she was just called 'cat', the people hadn't even bothered giving her a name :(. So... meet Violet. She's an absolute sweetie and a pain in my bum! The worlds most expensive cat racking up over £500 in vet bills in less than 6 months and smashing a brand new 42 Inch Tv after only having it for 30days. She loves 'duck on a stick', nuzzling into my dressing gown, lying on her back and farting all day long. She even has her own toy shelf, which she routes through to find the specific toy she fancies playing with.

I've turned into a total crazy cat lady but I kinda love it. and her.

Shop Update

I've been a super busy bee lately! I took two weeks off from the day job and spent a good majority locked away in my work room updating the Ebay Shop! I sadly let the business slide downhill very quickly, when I started a new job a few years ago and moved in with my then partner. But! Alas! A new friend encouraged me to get back into it and now I'm so happy I did. If you know me personally you'll know I like to be kept busy, as much as I like a lazy day every now and then I've always got to be doing something (very rarely am I sat still!) So having the shop back up and running gives me a feeling of having more purpose and productivity.

I used to get frustrated the shop because it was very much in dribs and drab, however now the photos are much better and the listings are all neatly to the same format, so I feel like its a lot more organised and less messy - which is a definite plus for me & my OCD!

The majority of my stock is listed on the ebay shop...

and slowly but surely I'll be using my spare time to share the listings across to Etsy.

I've still got lots of work I still need to do, but now that business has taken of again, it's definite motivation to continue on with it!

Last summer my wonderful cousin Matthew got married to his beautiful fiance Rebecca. It was at a beautiful old manor house (For  the life of me  I can't remember its name!)
me and Mary brother were invited to the evening do whilst the rest of the family were at the ceremony so we joined them later on. it was my brothers last family visit before he moved to Australia, so it was a nice special day to all spend together before he left us for a year (Or more!)
I managed to squeeze into my Polkadot (The Polkadotte - in polkadots?!) dress that I'd bought years before with the hopes of wearing it to a wedding, but then I got fat and couldn't fit, but then I got skinny and then could! *yeay!*
It was a lovely afternoon - mainly spent getting drunk with my brother, and dancing to the live band that played various Indie songs of our teenage years!
