I'm writing this after the event as it would have been pretty boring to just write that I was going out! We had the best night out! We went out as one of the work girls is leaving and one is going off on maternity, so we went for a meal first at Ask which was really nice. Then for drinks at various dogy venues around town. I wasn't drinking but had a really good laugh. We met up with the boy and a couple of friends once most of the work girls had gone home. The last 6 of us ended up all coming back to ours to stay the night. We rolled in at 5am and it's been a long time since I came home at that time!

Today we went to Adam Henson's Cotswold's Farm Park. The boy has NEVER been to a farm! Crazy! So I wanted to take him, especially since we were in the midst of lambing season. It was really cold but nice to see, feed, stroke and hold the animals! We even saw a chick that had literally hatched 2 minutes before we looked in the incubator! We got to feed goats and sheep, as well as seeing all the pregnant ewes and the ones who'd recently given birth, along with their babies. We got to stroke piglets, lambs, kids (baby goats, not human children!), quails, ducklings, chicks, guinea pigs and bunnies. I am seriously wanting some chickens now though!!

Today we came back home from our holiday. We called at Stratford on the way back to do a bit of shopping; we saw Shakespeare's birth place and stocked up at the sweet shop! When we got home I was super glad to see my kitty cats and they seemed pleased to see us. There's nothing like sleeping in your own bed with your beautiful kitties to demand attention at 5am!


Song Of The Day: Kansas State Song - Home On The Range
Reason: Such a classic song, I'm sure I remember a Disney film where a cow sings it! 

Highlight Of The Day: Coming home feeling well rested! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe, it's full of retro goodness and proper sweets!!

Today we went shopping at Bicester Village shopping outlet. It has outlet stores for big designers so it was much more upmarket than Cheshire Oaks, which is the nearest outlet village to us. It was awesome looking around the big designers stuff, most of it was still a bit of a rip off for items that weren't that nice, but there was loads that was super nice! We also had a walk around Oxford. We saw some of the old university buildings but I didn't think that the town itself was actually that nice which was a shame.

Today we went to the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and Gardens. It was a really nice little zoo, you could get super close to the animals - we were very tempted to steal a penguin!! The highlight was definitely seeing the Canadian Timber Wolves. They were so beautiful and all started howling in unison which was incredible to watch! Videos of that to be posted once I'm back!

Today was super cold! It hasn't snowed again but it was very chilly. We walked around Broadway and Stow On The Wold. It had loads of cute shops and antique places. We found an old, battered taxidermy stag head which we contemplated buying but settled for a Victorian servants bell that were going to use as our door bell at home. Tomorrow we should be going to a small zoo as the weather is supposed to be a lot better. Today's PED is an antique portrait of a Pixie!

I'll only be posting short posts as I'm away on holiday in the Cotswolds. I'll post a big blog entry with all the photos etc when I'm back! Today we went to the motor museum, it was full of vintage cars, old motor signs and motoring nik naks.

Today it was the annual quiz night to raise money for the Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden. They're restoring the old Victorian greenhouses and have some lottery funding for it, but every penny helps as restoration costs a fortune! We did pretty well in the quiz but didn't win anything sadly! Maybe next year.

Song Of The Day: Twinkle - Candy (cover of the Robbie Williams song)
Reason: Great singing duo!

This is one of our favourite dogs at the dogs home. She's called Holly and she's amazing! She's only a year or so old and is so cuddly and friendly. We took her and her kennel mate Sally into the compound to play with them for a bit and they were lovely. They ran after rope toys and wanted lots of fussing and attention.

Adopt Me:

Song Of The Day: Beyonce - Halo
Reason: Beautiful song.

Highlight Of The Day: Getting a new job as assistant manager at a local pet store. It's only temporary for the moment, but will hopefully lead to more in the future!

Inspiration Of The Day: This is a horrible article on the daily life of animal shelters in the USA. Such a shame that they put them down rather than trying to save them.

Today we went shopping at Tesco for something for tea. We decided we fancied some fish so stopped at the fresh fish counter to pick something up. I spotted this fish, I think it was a trout, with it's mouth open! It had teeny tiny teeth and what looked like a tongue! Who knew fish had tongues?! It reminds me of the screaming goat YouTube video that's been doing the rounds!

Who Knew Fish Had Tongues?:

Song Of The Day: Taylor Swift (Featuring the screaming goat) - I Knew You Were Trouble

Today was the first day on set for Tech Hunt. It was so cold! We started off the day with a bit of snow but thankfully it perked up a bit once we started shooting. It was fantastic to see the stunt horses in action and it should make for an awesome sequence when all edited together. It was also interesting to see the fancy slo-mo camera. I'm not sure about make/model/technical details but I'm looking forward to seeing the shots they got with it! As always everyone on set was pleasant and it was nice to meet some new people.

Crufts 2013

I've never been to Crufts before nor have I even watched it on tv properly. Since we've been talking about getting a dog I thought it'd be a good idea to go somewhere to look at different breeds and find out some more information first hand. I really enjoyed the day, tickets were only £14 each so I felt we really got value for money.

Today we had our induction for volunteering at Cheshire Dog's Home. We had a little talk about the place and what was expected of us and then we paired up with an existing volunteer and helped walk all of the dogs! We walked Buster and Buzz, two staffie crosses who are lovely. Then two more staffie crosses who were terribly excited and raced around and two lurchers who were as good as gold. We walked them round the track a couple of times and also had a bit of a play with them in the fenced off compound where they're allowed to go off lead. It was really nice to see how excited they were to get out of their kennels for a bit. It's a shame so many lovely dogs are unwanted and left there. If you want to volunteer, make a donation or adopt a dog have a look at their website and see if you can help! I also got round to watching comic relief and donated £5 to the cause!


Song Of The Day: Brigit Mendler - Ready Or Not
Reason: Chirpy song for when the sun is out

Highlight Of The Day: Walking the dogs!

Inspiration Of The Day: The volunteers at the dog's home. It's really kind how they give up time for the sake of the dogs.

Today I've been wearing my new coat that my Mum bought me from M&S. It's surprisingly warm considering it's a fashion coat. It's a light, light pink colour which I actually quite like too.


Song Of The Day: Uberbyte - If Something Gets Hard (Fuck It)
Reason: Such a great song! Love the double meaning!

Highlight Of The Day: Finishing work for 2 weeks!

Inspiration Of The Day: Nicki Minaj's advice to women.

Just a quick one as me and Asami want to get back to some of this!

Sleepy Face
Song Of The Day: Machine Head - Davidian
Reason: One of my personal highlights of my life was being less than a meter away from Machine Head whilst they were making their way to the stage at Sonisphere!

Highlight Of The Day: Kitty cuddles.

Inspiration Of The Day: Game Of Thrones! Everything about it is just amazing! Plot, characters, locations, costumes, make up, special effects, the books! I could go on!

Today's PED is of the breakfast cereal multigrain shapes. It's supposedly one of the 'better' breakfast choices as it has multigrains in (whatever they are) but it does contain 5g of sugar for every serving, so not the best for my teeth! Still, it's super tasty! If they were to make an improvement though, I'd suggest more variety in the different shapes; it seems to just be people, fish and trees really.

Multi Shapes

Song Of The Day: The Misfits - Devil's Whorehouse
Reason: I love The Misfits! Horror punk is amazing! Their, short, sharp, to the point songs are always awesome.

Highlight Of The Day: An evening spent watching documentaries about crop circles, Hitler's family and the series Snapped: Women Who Kill. Cheerful subjects!

Inspiration Of The Day: Crop circles. After watching a documentary about them (which wasn't really that good at all!) I think that although they look lovely, they're sort of pointless as you can only see them from above. It's not really art when 99% of people can't have a proper view of it. But I do love the more complex designs and the symmetry.

Today has been an amusing day. Asami and Klaus both decided to pull cute little 'superhero to the rescue' type poses. So cute!!

Song Of The Day: Filthy Boy - Waiting On The Doorstep
Reason: Not usually what I like, but quite enjoyed my first listen to it.

Highlight Of The Day: Draco cuddles. I love it when I feel his warm breath on my face. A sign of a real cuddle.

Inspiration Of The Day: The beautiful model Robyn Lawley. She's the first plus sized model to be picked for Ralph Lauren, one of my favourite designers. She's lovely and has a stunning figure, so in my book that makes her a good image role model!

Song Of The Day: Rhianna - Stay

Whoo! Today was my 500th blog post! I've been a bit slack lately, but I'll try and get my butt into gear again. Today I met with a friend to discuss a film we're working on. It's called A Load Of Rubbish and it's good cheesy fun! More news to come on that soon!


Song Of The Day: Sam & The Womp - Bom Bom
Reason: Really fun song.

Highlight Of The Day: Talking about films!

Today I got some photos back that I'd had developed. They were a random assortment of things; some from the Cheshire Game & Country Fair; some of some horses; some of Pixie and the rest of the abandoned airfield. Most of them I'm happy with but some look a litle yellow so I'm going to have a play around and see if I can enhance them. This one is my instant favourite though.

Mini Diana - Early 2013

Song Of The Day: Toni Braxton - Unbreak My Heart
Reason: One of those makes-me-cry-every-time songs

Highlight Of The Day: Helping a lovely Mum and Daughter to track down a wedding dress for the Mum's big day!

Just a quick Outfit Of The Day post. This is the outfit I wore out last Friday. I wore a white floaty dress that I bought from a random shop in Camden ages ago; a black Ralph Lauren belt; a stag ring a friend bought me for my birthday; a long necklace with a skull, dagger and a gun; a black ring with a fake pearl from Miss Selfridge; a charm bracelet that an Aunty bought me for xmas one year; black Victorian styled, lace up boots I've had for years but only wear on rare occasions as the zip on one boot has jammed and I'm scared of ruining them and lastly a good old pair of leggings. I'd also done my hair in a bun for a change.


Song Of The Day: Kelis - Milkshake
Reason: I love this song! I'm actually quite a fan on hers, I think she has some awesome songs and so different from the last.

Highlight Of The Day: Chatting to the girls in work. Usually my highlight of being in work!

Inspiration Of The Day: OMG Facts. Random but entertaining fact website.

Highlight Of The Day: Joaquin Phoenix in Signs. Yum.

Tonight we went to Mr Lau's restaurant in Warrington town center with a couple of friends followed by some drinks in town. The food was really nice, apart from one type of steamed dim sum which I didn't like at all! I had chicken and cashew nuts with fried rice, plus we had a crispy and steamed starter selection. Rather than coming in bowls and then extra plates to serve it on to it came with a rice bowl and the main dish separately, ready to put in the rice bowl. I thought it was a really good way to eat and definitely saves on the washing up. I'll defiantly be going there again and would recommend it! It was really nice to go out, I had a laugh and it was good to relax for a bit.


Song Of The Day: Eminem - My Name Is
Reason: I love Eminem's songs that are brutally honest and not cliche in any way!

Highlight Of The Day: Good times with friends.

Inspiration Of The Day: Yummy chinese food that makes me want to cook more myself!

Today a friend who I work with posted the most lovely thing on my FB wall regarding my job situation. I know I'll find something and sort myself out, but it's not nice being in the grey bit. But her comment really touched me to the point that I welled up and nearly started bawling my eyes out. It's nice to know that there are some amazing people out there. And two amazing kitties...

Le Chat Noir:

Song Of The Day: Adele - Hometown Glory
