Highlight Of The Day: Puppy cuddles followed by Draco cuddles.

Reason: I love this song and I never knew Katy Perry is in the video! 

Highlight Of The Day: Watching bad TV

Inspiration Of The Day: The video for 'brain bug' by Nightmare. B-movie at its best!

Today we went for a walk at Eastham Woods Country Park. It was a bit of a trek to get to but was a really huge place to walk around. It was really nice with plenty of other dogs for Stark to play with. There was also lots of sculptures carved out of wood, including a huge snake, a person and a real Victorian bear pit complete with carved bears! 

Song Of The Day: Queens Of The Stone Age - Everybody Knows That You're Insane 
Reason: I'm going to see them in November! So excited!!!

Highlight Of The Day: Eating tea outside

Inspiration Of The Day: The bear pit. So strange to think there were zoos that once kept animals in such poor conditions. It's also crazy to imagine all the Victorian people going to see creatures they'd never seen before.

Today was a tough day at work. Not only was it super hot inside the store but we also had a huge delivery of all the new stock for the new ranges we'll be selling. Some stuff looks great! I can wait until its pay day so I can try some out on my zoo! 

Song Of The Day: David Guetta & Kelly Rowland - Commander 
Reason: I love this song! Just makes me want to dance and sing! 

Highlight Of The Day: Any time spent stood next to the fan! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Light grey-blue. A perfect colour for today.

Today the boy had a battle with hayfever. Hayfever won. His eye has puffed up and forced his eye closed, it looks terrible! I've never seen anything like it! It looks like the photos in magazine stories where people have bad reactions to hair dye. The moral of the story is don't walk the dog through fields when you've not taken  anti-histamines! 

Song Of The Day: Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench
Reason: Classic song! 

Highlight Of The Day: A fast day at work.

Inspiration Of The Day: People who want the best nutrition for their pets. These are the people whose pets are truly family members rather than pets.

This evening was the second to last puppy class. Next week we have to complete our puppy foundation! I'm looking forward to working our way up the awards. He's really good and picks everything up so quickly. We've also had the last side of the garden fence out up along with our gate so Stark can finally be allowed to run about outside without being yelled at for constantly wandering into the neighbours gardens. 

Song Of The Day: Stone Sour - Their latest song.
Reason: I heard it on the radio today but didn't catch the song title. It's on my 'to-download' list as soon as I find out what it's called. 

Highlight Of The Day: Playing with Stark in the garden.  

Inspiration Of The Day: The Steve Wilkos Show. Letting us know that although there are completely retarded idiots everywhere, there are a few good peoplethat  try to knock some sense back into them.

Today I have felt so ill! My throat has been scratchy and on fire and my head feels like its all blocked. My muscles are all aching too. I really hope it wears off quickly as I've not got a day off now until next weekend. Today's PED is of a local cat who's lovely! 

Song Of The Day: Mastodon - Blood & Thunder
Reason: Amazing song, so heavy yet exactly the kind of song that sticks right in your head. 

Highlight Of The Day: A late night walk with Stark and the boy. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Game Of Thrones season 1 episode 9. Great storytelling!

Today I've been struggling with a sore throat. I haven't had one in ages so I'd forgotten how horrible they are. Throughout the day I've slowly started to get ear ache and feel very tired, so I'm sure it's a sign of something a bit more than just a sore throat sadly. It's my day off tomorrow so I just plan to relax as much as possible to try and get rid of it quicker. 

Song Of The Day: Linkin Park - From The Inside
Reason: Old school classic! 

Highlight Of The Day: Watching lots of documentaries. 

Inspiration Of The Day: The super cute kitten with two faces!

Stark made some new friends at the park. There was a big field where lots of people were walking all sorts of dogs, but he mainly played with some smaller cross breeds. They were so cute! All crossed with poodles and other small dogs so thy had superb coats. It was nice to see them all running around in a small herd and good to see how nice Stark is with other dogs. 

Song Of The Day: Queens Of The Stone Age - Feel Good Hit Of The Summer
Reason: I know it's a QOTSA pick again but I'm listening to them a lot and I love the double meaning of the song title. 

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing Stark wolf down some bacon ribs. 

Inspiration Of The Day: House magazines. I'm making a mood board to better envisage my style.

Today was a normal Monday; work followed by puppy training. Stark is getting lots better at doing what he's asked but were still not having much success with him still peeing in the house sadly! Today's PED is of my outfit from yesterday, it's a nice summery vintage Hawaiian tie shirt with a white vest top and a grey skirt from M&S. I also wore my plastic strawberry and cherry chain necklace and some green bead bracelets. 

Song Of The Day: Queens Of The Stone Age - First It Giveth
Reason: My fave QOTSA song, I was listening to part of their love performance of their new stuff on Radio One and it sounds great! 

Highlight Of The Day: The season finale of Game Of Thrones! Bit of an anticlimax as there's too many questions I want to know the answers to still! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Decorating ideas with stripes:

Today we went on a walk with Stark to Lymm Dam and he learnt to swim! He watched another dog swimming in the water after a stick and started paddling in deeper water. He wouldn't jump in or go any deeper that his tummy but he was sticking his whole face under! We carried on our walk and found another place with a shallow slope into the water. After some more encouragement he finally started swimming after the sticks we were throwing to him! I was so proud! He's so clever and he was so brave to finally start swimming even though he was a bit scared at first. I can't wait to take him to a beach now. 

Song Of The Day: VNV Nation - Beloved
Reason: Awesome song! 

Highlight Of The Day: Being a proud puppy mummy! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Seeing how Stark can learn something so quickly even when he's so young.

Today's PED is an old photo I found from when I visited Egypt on my mid teens. It was awesome to go inside the pyramid but generally Cairo wasn't too nice a place. Very hot, very dirty and not very safe! We were escorted by the armed forces in jeeps with all the soldiers holding loaded machine guns! Scary! I'd love to go again as I'm super interested in Ancient Egypt, in particular the mythology and the gods. 

Song Of The Day: Melissa Auf Der Maur -Followed  The Waves
Reason: Beautiful song, I really must listen to more of her music. 

Highlight Of The Day: Looking through old photos.

Inspiration Of The Day: Anubis. By far the most interesting of the Ancient Egyptian Gods.

Today has seemed like a long day. It really wasn't exciting in the slightest. I'm definitely ready for my day off on Sunday. I've been looking at house things online andI've found some great photos and prints for my stairs and bathrooms. Hopefully tomorrow will be more exciting. 

Song Of The Day: 36 Crazyfists - Slit Wrist Theory
Reason: One of my ultimate fave songs. I love their style; it really stands out as their own. 

Highlight Of The Day: Fajitas for tea. 

Inspiration Of The Day: The Rococo, French Noir and Victorian Gothic themed furniture, artwork and general housewares I've come across. I wish I had an old style house to put it all in.

This evening I got round to watching Game Of Thrones, season 3, episode 9. AMAZING! I've not been so emotionally moved, or rather thrown about from emotion to emotion, for a long time! It was such a shocking piece of the story that I really don't know how they're going to finalise it all in the last episode next week.

Soul Destroyer:

Song Of The Day: Game Of Thrones - The Rains Of Castamere
Reason: When you hear that song you know there will be trouble.

Highlight Of The Day: That episode! It was also the worst part of my day too!

Today I went to the dentist for an appointment about my toothache. I'm to go back next Friday to have a repair to a filling done and hopefully it should be all sorted. I'm glad it's only repair work cos I'm not a huge fan of the dentist and didn't want anything complicated done. We also had a nice walk and a pub tea with my Dad so we made the most of the sunshine.

Not Asleep Puppy At Bedtime:
Not Asleep Puppy At Bedtime

Song Of The Day: Robin Thicke Featuring TI and Pharrell Williams - Blurred Lines
Reason: I could take or leave this song, but it is catchy.

Highlight Of The Day: Finding out that I wouldn't be needing tons of dental work done! Just a simple repair; such a relief.

Inspiration Of The Day: Reasons Cats Make The Best Alarm Clocks.

Today was an average Sunday at work. After work my friend came round with her daughter and new baby. They're all so adorable! I loved the baby but am definitely not ready for one yet. My friend is a great Mum and person so I do aspire to be like her. The boy's sister came round afterwards so it's been a nice evening of girly chats. 

Song Of The Day: Combichrist - Get Your Body Beat
Reason: Such a get-up-and-dance song. 

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing people I care about and a new little face. 

Inspiration Of The Day: My lovely friend. She's a prime example of the kind of person I'd like to be seen as by others.

Today I went for my reptile training for work at the Cheltenham branch. I really enjoyed it and thought it was all really interesting. I have a pretty decent basic knowledge of reptiles as I have 3 leopard geckos anyway but it's good to know more about the other reptiles we have in store. I definitely want a snake now though! Or maybe a tortoise! The only bad part of the day was getting up at 6am to make the 250mile round trip to the store. I felt so tired whilst driving but as soon as I got home I was wide awake! Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight. 

Song Of The Day: Grendel - Hate This
Reason: I haven't heard it for so long but I still adore it. 

Highlight Of The Day: Handling the animals during training. It's a great visual aid when learning about them by they're also super cute! 

Inspiration Of The Day: Animal experts. I'd love to develop my knowledge to such a level.
