Today we went to Lymm Dam to walk the dogs again and we saw this carving on a tree. We walk past it every time we go so it must have appeared in the last few days. It sort of looks like its been shot in one eye. Strange. 

Song Of The Day: One Direction - Live Whilst We're Young
Reason: I think 1D are a bit of fun. If only I was a teenage girl! 

Highlight Of The Day: A nice tea of stir fry with oyster sauce at my Dads. 

Inspiration Of The Day: I've been watching the MTV series Buckwild and I'd love to go and live in the rural areas of America. I enjoy being outdoors and its just so different to the UK.

Today was my first if two days in a row off work. I can't say I've had much of a break though as I've been busy with the puppies. I also got up at around 5.45am on my day off to take the boy to work which deserves a medal in my opinion! We had to take Pixie to the vets to have her anal glands emptied as well. She hates the vets but seems to be feeling better for it now. Tomorrow it's more time with the puppies and a possible trip to the dentist. 

Song Of The Day: Rudimental - Feel The Love
Reason: It's been stuck in my head and I love the video. 

Highlight Of The Day: Having tea with the boy. Even if it was at his work at 10pm! 

Inspiration Of The Day: The Village Cafe in Latchford. It's a cafe that gives people a chance to get involved and develop work based skills. It also does great food and milkshakes!

Today was one of those days where nothing really happened, as is the case with most Tuesdays. I'm looking forward to two days off and my reptile training for work. I'll be thinking of lots of questions to ask so that I can swot up ready for my first reptile sale! Exciting! 

Song Of The Day: Eminem - The Way I Am
Reason: One of my favourite Eminem songs. 

Highlight Of The Day: Relaxing evening with my puppies and kitties. It's nice to have everyone in the same room!

Inspiration Of The Day: Britain's Got Talent. It's really fun to watch all the different talents. I'd love to do something like that if I had a suitable talent!

This evening we went to our puppy class.   Stark was good as always and we've got a couple of new things to practice. It's really hard work having to look after Pixie and Stark, but I've realised it's because they're jealous of the attention the other one gets, not because they don't like each other. 

Song Of The Day : Eminem - Sing For The Moment
Reason: I love this song, it's so honest and really speaks truth. 

Highlight Of The Day: Puppy class.

Inspiration Of The Day: All the lovely tributes people have been leaving for the soldier that was killed by idiot fanatics. It's nice to know people can band together in the face of tragedy.

Today I worked and then went to help with a bit of cleaning at the boy's Mum's house. We followed it up with a nice KFC which was a good end to a pretty ok day.

Princess Pixie:

Song Of The Day: Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out
Reason: One of my favourite songs.

Highlight Of The Day: KFC with the in-laws.

Inspiration Of The Day: I've been hearing a lot about 3D printing and it looks pretty cool! This dress worn by Dita Von Teese is beautiful!

Today was a busy day in the sunshine. We took Pixie for coffee and cake in the morning, walk with Stark in Delamere Forest, then pub tea with my Dad. Feels like its been a long day but an enjoyable one.

Coffee & Cake For One:

Song Of The Day: Iggy Azaela - Work
Reason: Super catchy, would be interested in hearing what she comes out with next. 

Highlight Of The Day: Spending time with Stark and Pixie. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Game Of Thrones, all of the episodes are like mini movies. Stunning.

Today was my first delivery day at work being in charge!! It was quite stressful but think it went well overall. We have a new baby bearded dragon. He's so tiny and cute I already want to take him home! Pixie is snoring away tonight so have a feeling that what's been a long tiring day will be followed by a long snore filled night!


Song Of The Day: Bastille - Pompeii
Reason: I really don't like this song but it got stuck in my head when the boy decided to play it last night.

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing our shop's new beardie for the first time! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Seeing Stark enjoy his walks so much. Makes me feel like everything we do for him is starting to show. He's an excellent dog.

This evening we went to Lymm Dam again for our walk. We were by the waters edge looking at the tadpoles when two swans and a troop of babies came right up to us. They didn't like us being near to their babies so the male hissed and tried to scare us off. Starky was barking at him trying to protect us but we had to run and grab him before he was tea! Then Pixie wandered over to them too, so she had to be picked up before she was a snack! Was nice to see the babies so close though. 

Song Of The Day: Johnny Truant - The Bloodening
Reason: One of my favourite songs/albums of all time

Highlight Of The Day: Chippie for tea! 

Inspiration Of The Day: A series in DMAX called I Was Bitten about people who survive animal attacks. It's crazy what the human body can survive through.

Today my Dad came round to put up some shelves and some mirrors in the bathroom. They look really good and will mean we can put so much more stuff away now. We also took Stark and Pixie for a walk round Lymm Dam, they both like it there and it's a nice walk for them. 

Song Of The Day: All Saints - Pure Shores
Reason: Classic tune, love The Beach too! 

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing my house take a little more shape.

I had a lovely day off today. I went to the RSPCA this morning to talk about volunteering, then went to Debs to find out I'd already worked my last shift. We then took Stark to Lymm Dam and for a quick pub lunch. Then I went to my Mum's for tea and finally we watched Game Of Thrones. Aah, what a good day off!

This evening was Stark's first puppy class at the Rixton Dog School. It was really fun and we managed to get the hang of all the commands pretty quickly, mostly because Starky is so clever, but also because we have been practicing already. Already looking forward to next week.

Puppy In Training:

Song Of The Day: Kiss - God Gave Rock n' Roll To You
Reason: Was on the radio today. Kiss always remind me of that Family Guy episode!

Highlight Of The Day: Puppy training!

Inspiration Of The Day: Paul Schneggenburger's Sleep Of The Beloved photo series, it's crazy to see the patterns people have created.

It was my second day off in a row today and its been really nice to have a bit of a break. I took Stark out at lunchtime as he seems to be extra boisterous at the moment and it did nothing to calm him down any! Puppies, eh! I also caught up on some sleep and did all my washing. Having a house has made me well more boring! 

Song Of The Day: Nicki Minaj - Beez In The Trap
Reason: Stuck in my head, really different from her singles but I like it!

Highlight Of The Day: Meeting another collie on our walk. Can't wait to see how big Starky is going to grow! 

Inspiration Of The Day: i-Crime, a new series on the Crime Channel about crimes captured on video phones. Some people are just idiots! But has made me think more about how I should use my phone if I ever saw a crime as it can be used as evidence.

Today we had a dog trainer to see Stark and to give us some advice. We've got some things to be working on including 'leave' and voice tone changes to indicate good or bad behaviour. We have another session in a couple of weeks when he's grown up a little bit more, but he's doing really well considering he's only 3 months old! I also got round to putting our photos up of us and the cats from our photo session. They look really nice and I'm glad we chose the ones we did. I called at The Range this afternoon as well; I picked up some new bedsheets and some photo frames. I just need to start hanging them all now!


Song Of The Day: Sugarcult - Crying
Reason: Not heard this for so long. I first heard it on a CD that came with Kerrang! magazine in around 2004.

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing how quickly Stark can learn new things.

Inspiration Of The Day: Reversed high heels by Leanie Van Der Vyver.

The weather has been really nice today, but as I was in work all day then got home to find Stark was worn out from being out all day, I've not managed to enjoy it properly yet! Boo!

Song Of The Day: Nirvana - Come As You Are
Reason: One of my favourite Nirvana tracks. I love playing it loud!

Highlight Of The Day: Watching Game of Thrones! Watching season 3 and reading the first book gets very confusing though!

Inspiration Of The Day: Westeros! I'd love to live there! Not 100% sure where though. You know you're an amazing author when you've created a place people wished was real.

This evening we gave the rats a bath. They don't have space in their cage to have a bowl deep enough for them to properly wash in so it's nice to help them feel fresh. They were really good and didn't really mind being splashed with warm water. They groomed themselves afterwards and looked nice and clean!

Song Of The Day: Swedish House Mafia - Antidote
Reason: The perfect song for the sun!

Highlight Of The Day: Proper quality time with my boys (the rats).

Inspiration Of The Day: The Apprentice. Inspiring us all not to be prats! Can't wait for the new series!!

Today was one of my last shifts at Debenhams. It's starting to dawn on me just how much I'll miss working with my friends. But I know I need to move on to better things. I've also been thinking a lot about what I want to do about the style of the house, it's nearly time to start painting and wallpapering!

Song Of The Day: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Can't Hold Us
Reason: The video has huskys in! Lovely!

Highlight Of The Day: A bit of piece and quiet.

Inspiration Of The Day: The video for Rudimental's Waiting All Night. It's the things we take for granted that are the things we need the most.

Tonight I went to a BBQ at a friends house. It was nice to eat BBQ food and have a laugh. I feel that I never really spend any time relaxing at the moment as the house is always a mess or I'm working. So I'm going to make it my mission to have at least one evening a week where I just get in bed and just chill out and watch films.

Song Of The Day: Professor Green - Remedy
Reason: Love Pro Green! Think he's really different to most rappers.

Highlight Of The Day: Chilling with friends.

Inspiration Of The Day: Getting a big sale in work, makes me feel like I want to do even better now!

Tonight we had the 'takeaway' oriental meal for 2 from Sainsburys. It was awful! It was so bland and tasteless. The seaweed was just like wet cabbage, the prawn toasts had an odd taste to them and most of it was wasted and thrown in the bin! Luckily, we did have some chocolate for afters, so the meal wasn't totally ruined.

Song Of The Day: Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody
Reason: Stuck in my head! Not heard it for a long time, but really like this song.

Highlight Of The Day: Watching weird films.

Inspiration Of The Day: Werner Herzog. He's a big inspirational figure of mine. I've only seen his documentaries but am starting to watch some of his other stuff which is really interesting.

Today I have not been well. For some reason I've been sick and felt really dizzy and strange. After a good few hours sleep I seem to feel better but still have a raging headache. Fingers crossed that tomorrow is a better day!

Song Of The Day: Classic FM
Reason: Nice and relaxing before bedtime.

Highlight Of The Day: Lying down. Any minute I spent horizontal was the best!

Inspiration Of The Day: People who have serious illnesses. It's bad enough just feeling generally ill!
