Today Draco used me as a climbing frame and slashed my leg! Ouch! 

Claw Marks: 

Song Of The Day: The Offspring - Original Prankster
Reason: One of those songs that makes me think of past summers. 

Highlight Of The Day: A few more hours at work, means a few more pennies. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Rain. Can't wait for a big storm.

Today's PED summerises how my brain feels; useful but overheating. 


Song Of The Day: Selena Gomez - Come & Get It
Reason: Very catchy and she looks amazing in the video. 

Highlight Of The Day: It finally raining! At least we don't have to water the lawn today! 

Inspiration Of the Day: A Channel 4 documentary called Confessions Of An Alien Abductee. One of the abductees hair was just weird! That was worth watch the programme for if nothing else! It's definitely reassured me that I don't believe in little green men and think most people who claim to have been abducted are just fantasists.

Today has been really productive. We got loads done at work, looked up things for the future and finished it off with a relaxing walk with Stark. We also have our new rat cage set up. It's just over 5 foot tall and a couple of feet wide! It's great as they can properly run about and make the most of all the levels. They seemed to have settled in. The photo has cropped out about another half a foot off the bottom, just so you have an idea how tall it really is! 

Tall Tower:

Song Of The Day: Emily Browning - Asleep
Reason: This is from the Sucker Punch soundtrack, it's really atmospheric and reminds me a little of the Donnie Darko score. 

Highlight Of The Day: Learning more stuff for work. 

Inspiration Of The Day: People who take your advice about pet foods, treats, care etc and it has a positive effect. It's nice to know I'm making a difference.

Today we went to a BBQ at my Mum's house. Stark was very good and he seems to enjoy being around different people. I've also chosen the paint for the main bathroom, it's called soft steel so I'm hoping it looks nice! 

Soft Steel: 

Song Of The Day: Demi Lovato - Heart Attack
Reason: Very catchy but still not my favourite song. 

Highlight Of The Day: The BBQ. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Newly single friends. Girl power.

Today we went on a picnic with a couple of friends at Marbury Park. We took Stark and he was so good, he didn't mither for food or steal any! He also went swimming in the lake, he goes out really far now and he adores it. It's really building up his fitness too. 

Paddling In The Lake:

Song Of The Day: Robin Thicke, T.I. & Pharell Williams - Blurred Lines
Reason: Still loving this song. What rhymes with hug me? 

Highlight Of The Day: A nice day in the sun. 

Inspiration Of The Day: My cats watching a daddy long legs. Hilarious how entertained they are by something so simple.

We went to Lymm Dam again for our walk this evening. We keep seeing these carvings in the trees and each time we go there seems to be more and more. I don't know if they're supposed to be there but they are pretty to look at. 


Song Of The Day: Metallica - One
Reason: Possibly the best music video ever. 

Highlight Of The Day: Getting some general sorting out done. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Online courses. Trying to decide is so hard! Way too much choice.

Today was boiling in work! I think I was close to sweating all my new hair dye off?! But I have two days off now, so I'll try and keep out of the heat as much as possible. We took Stark to Lymm Dam for a walk this evening. We befriended a Labrador who shared her ball, they were both swimming after it in the water and Stark swam out further than he has before. Then we met two collie crosses then two German shepherds with an Akita.  I like Stark meeting other dogs as I want him to be friendly and capable of adapting to new situations. He's doing really well. 

Song Of The Day: Alkaline Trio - Private Eye
Reason: One of my ultimate favourite songs ever. 

Highlight Of The Day: A nice evening walk. 

Inspiration of The Day: Colour charts. Trying to decide what colours to paint our rooms with is definitely not a decision to be taken lightly!

Today our friend moved out of our house and into his own rented place. It's sad that we won't spend as much time with our friend, but I'm glad we can start to properly have time and space to make the house our own. 

Song Of The Day: Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Reason: Classic.

Highlight Of The Day: Tea at The Chilli Club in Lymm. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Vintage stores on Instagram. Lovely photos.

Today Stark lost his first tooth! Well the first one I've managed to find after its has become unattached, but I think it's actually his second. He's growing up so fast! 

Song Of The Day: Missy Elliot - Gossip Folks
Reason: Love her videos. She's also someone who seems like a cool person in real life too, she was great on MTVs cribs. 

Highlight Of The Day: A late walk with the puppy and seeing loads of bunnies. 

Inspiration Of The Day: The people who make Milka chocolate. I love you.

Today we went for our next lot of training classes for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Award. He did really well and it's much easier to get things practiced properly when there's only two of us in the class! 

Song Of The Day: Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench
Reason: Reminds me of the summer and good weather for some reason! 

Highlight Of The Day: Bunny cuddles

Inspiration Of The Day: Failbook. Hilarious!

Today's PED is off my boys all asleep in thei hammock. Their new cage is coming soon and I can't wait! 

Hanging Out: 

Song Of The Day: Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name Of
Reason: Fuck you! I won't do what you tell me! 

Highlight Of The Day: Buying some prints for my downstairs bathroom. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Flapper style photography. I love the dreamy images of bygone eras.

Film Review: Closed For The Season (2010)

 Closed For The Season

I recorded this film as I love anything set in abandoned places. Closed For The Season is about a girl, Kristy (Aimee Brooks) who wakes up in a local theme park which she spent time in as a child. She is haunted by past memories as she tries to find her lost teddy and a way out. She is aided by James (Damien Maffei) who's parents were the caretakers. The film is directed by Jay Woelfel.

Today's PED is of the beautiful night sky. It was full of colours and sadly this photo doesn't do it justice.

Sky At Night:

Today Stark went to the vets to be weighed for his flea treatment and he's now a whopping 11.4kg! He's definitely not my little boy anymore! The nurse said she reckoned he be at the higher end of the usual collie weight bracket as he's so tall. It was nice to have a day off in the sun and to wear a dress instead of my work uniform. So today's PED is of my lovely Hawaiian 50s style dress. 

Song Of The Day: Nine Inch Nails - Wish  
Reason: Really can't wait to hear their new album. 

Highlight Of The Day: Buying some hair dye! Bye bye roots.

Inspiration Of The Day: Victorian mental institutions. I was watching the new Broadmoor documentary on the CI channel and its really fascinating to see how psychology has developed over the years.

Today we bought Stark a paddling pool. He loves it! He tries to catch the splashes he makes and runs in circles. It's so cute.  

Song Of The Day: Eminem - The Real Slim Shady
Reason: I love old Eminem. Such a lot to say but still relevant. 

Highlight Of The Day: Seeing the cutest chihuahua puppy in work. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Cookbooks. I really want to start cooking properly again.

Today has been stupidly hot in work, a mega 32 degrees! Crazy! I'm hoping tomorrow cools down with it being delivery day otherwise I'll loose half my body weight in sweat carrying all the heavy stock around! I've also picked up a few huge bites from insects when I've been out walking the dog. They've come up in to huge welts around 1-2 inches wide/long. They're so itchy! It's nice seeing the sun but I'd prefer it with a bit more breeze and a lot less insects.

Song Of The Day: Iggy Azalea - Bounce
Reason: Really like her and want to listen to some more of her stuff. 

Highlight Of The Day: Watching Starky play in the stream.

Inspiration Of The Day: Horoscopes. I only believe them when they say good things that I really want to happen though! My PED is of my Chinese year symbol, which is also interesting too! I'm definitely a real Leo/Dragon child.

Today we had a family BBQ at my Mums. She always puts on a good spread so I'm still stuffed! I've also made my lunch for work tomorrow. I'm starting to try to eat a bit more healthily and to save money instead of buying it all the time, so I have lots of nice salad leftover from the BBQ to take with me. As it was so hot I decided to go for a floaty black skirt with a short front hem and a low back hem, with a black vest top covered by my vintage Hawaiian shirt. It's nice to not by wearing my uniform for a change! 

Song Of The Day: Lana Del Rey - Mermaid Motel
Reason: My favourite Lana song of the moment.

Highlight Of The Day: Nice food and enjoying the nice weather with family. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Lana Del Rey style nails!

Today was another day where nothing particularly exciting happened. I did have a nice chat about our futures with a friend in work though, so it's given me some more things to think about. Stark's new favourite treat at the moment appears to be jam tarts. He seems to sniff them out from across the room! He's only allowed tiny tastes though, so as not to ruin his super healthy diet! 

Song Of The Day: Limp Bizkit - Rollin'
Reason: Tune! 

Highlight Of The Day: Walking Stark with my Dad. 

Inspiration Of The Day: Egg warmers! Look them up on Etsy! Amazing!
