Destined for failure

So, the sizeable mountain of work I have is still ever present..oops. it’s a gorgeous day so I decided to take it all outside into the garden, the change of environment can only be a good thing, yes?

Well. . No. Work set up, all nice and ready. I decided to go in and have lunch first. I came back to half chewed paper all over the floor and a completely shady looking dog with a completely pink face from the highlighter he had half eaten.

Fuck sake dogs.

Pre-dog attack. . .



If just for one minute . .

. .I could get some work done, if I didn’t have to stop interrupting my younger dog attempting to hump my very worried older dog in the back garden.

. .I could have some silence, if they would not persistently play fight on their hind legs. Honestly the neighbours must think I am keeping a couple of actual bears.

I don’t exaggerate on these points. I have had to stop writing this very post three times to open the back door and shout at the younger dog, in a quiet but authoritative voice (so the neighbours don’t hear but he still gets the gist) “beamish stop humping your brother!!) Whilst my soft as anything labrador looks at me with wide eyes that scream “For god sake woman. Please.”

And Beamish knows precisely what he is doing, because each time I open the door he jumps, four-paws-on-the-ground, and gives me his rabbit caught in the headlights look.

I do love my animals.



Well would you look at that. . .

I have a number of new followers, so Hurray!¬†.. and hello ūüėÄ And thank you to Daniel for pimping out my site, I knew there was a reason I liked you.

As a sort of update from yesterday’s blog post, my puppy¬†Beamish¬†has been admitted to the vets for now, which is awful as my other older dog is now wandering around like a lost soul. . and has began humping his blankets. Grieving process huh?¬†

So still not feeling the love at the moment. It seems to be a non-stop crapfest. So I am using this to vent my feelings as apparently that helps? So this won’t be very literary at all Im afraid, but hopefully people enjoy reading casual chat? . . . You do right?

My mission of the day is now to at least start Pride and Prejudice, I have to read it for my module on Friday, so that is doable. . . I think. 

In other news: My kitchen has no eggs and no cheese. I don’t know what to do with myself now. Do people still eat just toast??¬†

Don’t go just yet. . I promise these posts will improve. . almost certain of it!


Where have I been?!

Sorry, yet again I have let my blogging slide. . but I have been a bit of a busy bee this past week or so with Michael’s birthday and Wales and what not. But here I am to share my experience of¬†glamping¬†with you all!!

Pentre Mawr in Wales is an incredibly relaxing, beautiful place and I don’t even know where to begin with my recommendation of it! Whilst it was a very expensive long weekend it was worth every penny as me and Mike relaxed in our very own hot tub with a glass of wine in the sun! Yes, we had a¬†personal¬†hot tub for the weekend and it was bliss!

Glamping is quite in fashion I believe and I am so glad I decided to pay out for the experience! On arrival we were greeted with a glass of bucks fizz and the family dogs were nothing but welcoming as they lay at our feet. The people there are the most accommodating, friendly, lovely people and we wanted for nothing whilst we were there.  And what about our tent? Well that was beautiful, filled with African themed colours it really lived up to our expectations!

I can’t say we did a lot whilst there as neither of us drive, and it is a bit in the middle of nowhere. But this is by no means a complaint. I have never felt so relaxed in my life, and the sun came out for us which made it even more perfect!

You all must go! Trust me!! I will link it below ūüôā At least just have a look at how pretty everything is!,luxury_camping,_5_star_luxury,_snowdonia,_conwy.html

What else have I been up to? Well I went to Manchester for a girly day with my mum, we sipped cocktails in Harvey Nicks and did a bit of shopping for my boyfriend’s birthday meal this coming Saturday! All in all a relaxing day. And I have been reading of course! I am currently reading¬†Trainspotting¬†as I have finally finished the¬†50 shades¬†trilogy!! I have to say that I found the books enjoyable and whilst I dont think it was the best thing since Mills & Boon, it was certainly entertaining enough. What can I say about Trainspotting? It is a slow read! It is written in Glaswegian and therefore I have to read it in that accent to fully understand it! But so far it is enjoyable. Plus it is the bright orange version so you know, what isn’t to like there!!

Ta for now
