Getting a Puppy.....

August bought the arrival of Bertie... 



People told me a puppy was hard work, "much like a baby" they said....
"Harder than a baby" they said....

I thought they were exaggerating... Let me tell you they were not! 

I am tired, my house isn't quite the same as it once was... My floors have probably never had quite as much anti bacterial cleaner on it.

Bertie is now 13 weeks old, and he is definitely here to stay, he has quickly become part of the family, he sleeps well at night apart from the early starts, eats well, rare accidents in the house... Win! 

Our puppy must haves... 

Crate with comfy bedding, I know not everyone likes crates but this for us was something we wanted to train in, to give Bertie his space away from the girls and to allow me to know he is safe and away from any temptations to chew our furniture when we are away... It's working.

Extendable lead..... We wanted to be able to give him some freedom to explore before he has learnt to come back to us properly, this is a great way to know he can't escape.

Puppy friendly treats...
Bettie is very eager to please, especially when treats are involved.
Current favourites are in this box selected especially for Bertie from Yum.ee
Check them out... 



Toys...
And plenty of them, this aids with the prevention of boredom he loves his toys and often gives us that welcome break from the manic running around.



If you are thinking of getting a puppy I would recommend you have lots of free time especially in those first few weeks, if you think I can be of any help in your new puppy journey please ask...

Dear people on the beach in Nice...

I have been absent in my blog lately due to my own reasons, but I am saddened daily by what I read and hear in the news almost daily and most things I choose to not comment, hoping I would never need to comment.

I can only imagine the fear, anger, sadness and embarassment of being made to strip on a beach surrounded by people... 

I am so sad that us as women are being labelled by what we choose to wear.. 

A woman on the beach fully covered does not make her a terrorist.. She is simply dressing for the religion she has chosen for herself, maybe we should start telling every woman who is covered up due to religious reasons that they too need to undress... Whilst you are at it maybe get some of the more undressed ones to cover up abit more?? 

I would like to know where all the support was on the beach? 

Surely not everyone suspected this lady of being a terrorist? 

The idea that the burkini is linked to terrorism is ludicrous... Such a shame that this is where France is at. 
Why are we still forcing women to wear or not wear certain clothing? 

Am I just sitting by and seeing all this go on? Are you?  Or can I be more proactive in my thoughts...  Can you? 

How did you stay so silent? 

To the woman on the beach... I'm sorry.

1st Sunday Somethings of the Oh so pretty August...


Wow what a week it's been, I can't believe how dull the start of this week was... Seriously felt like we should be getting ready for Christmas... And it made me realise I need to invest in some new slippers sharpish....

To start off the things I'm loving....

1) Yesterday we touched down in Cornwall, perfection... A whole week with him,my girls,my mum, dad, brother and my brothers girlfriend... 
We love it here and I am planning on completely switching off from "normal life"


2) Loving my new tea storage....
I need to fill the slots up now... The matcha green tea is a firm favourite but I am also loving womankind 




3) The Only Way Is Essex
I don't even care how lame this makes me... I love the drama.. Easy to watch and easy to get sucked in... 

4) Daily smoothies 
The past 2 weeks Mum and I have been making a smoothie for our lunch, they are really filling and surprisingly delicious.. No naughty lunches for us... 



Hope you all have a lovely week, I'm really enjoying taking 5 minutes to reflect and think about a few things that I have really enjoyed in the past week.
