Hello October

Happy Autumn Fall! Happy October!

The first of October is a very special day around here. It’s Diesel birthday!

15 years old! How did that happen?! We celebrated with hoomin Mama coming home early, hugs, new toy and saying how much of a good boy and a cutie he is all day. It was his first birthday without his big bruv and he’s doing okay being the only cat. In addition to his hyperthyroidism, he has some tummy issues and is now on the same steroids AJ was. And just like AJ on those steroids he’s peeing more and kicking litter everywhere afterwards. Bad mama forgot cat nip on his birthday. Well I didn’t, I got him a cat nip ball I’d thought he’d go crazy over. He wasn’t too fussed, however almost daily he has a swipe at it. Tom boy’s still got it. He’s still jumping up high, having mad five minutes even if they’re not as often as a few years ago. I’m convinced he thinks he’s 18 in cat years.

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great last weekend of August! I don’t know about you, but growing up as soon as September started, Summer over. Back to school around the 9th September. This way of thinking kinda stuck until I moved to Spain. It took a few years to really understand how the seasons work compared to the UK. Here the Solstices and Equinoxes more or less run with the seasonal changes with a week or 2 difference. It’s like someone just switches the temperature no warning. And true Brit I start with the weather! 

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week (warning it’s a little on the animal side). Feel free to add your own in the comments!  Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Earth Day 2016

Happy Earth Day! Guanaco Barcelona zoo

I’ve been meaning to post these photos for a while and Earth Day seems like the perfect time. Back in early March it was one of the those sunny winter afternoons. One where if you found a warm spot in the sun wrapped up nice and snug in your winter apparel, feeling the warm sun on your face, the air held a promise that winter will soon pass.
