How to make your cat happy

How to make your cat happy
(and get it to love you!)

Cats are curious creatures, they're very self-sufficient and like to give the impression that they don't actually need an owner at all. That's why I love them and why my home didn't feel complete without my Meeko. He's a Maine Coone x Norwegian Forest Cat cross and an indoor cat so it was crucial for me to learn how to make your cat happy so he settled and started treating the place like his home

How to Celebrate your almost wedding

How to celebrate being nearly-weds


First off let's all just take a minute to whinge and moan and cry. If you're reading this you're probably part of the 64% who've had their 2020 wedding affected by Covid19. We are within that number and it still drives me crazy that I'm not going to be a Mrs in September but the world did not want to play ball this time. There's lots going on right now and everyone seems to be in a different situation and coping differently. I just want to say it's absolutely ok to be sad and even get annoyed at the 'it's for the best' people. It's also absolutely wonderful if you're going ahead with a smaller ceremony and I really commend you for doing that.

But this post is about those of us who have postponed for whatever reason, ours is that we are completely in love with our venue Abbeydale Picturehouse and didn't want to have it anywhere else, it also gives us a little more time to save and have a few extras we thought were out of our budget before. So what do you do on your should have been wedding day?
