Lily & Tallulah: I think we have a problem…..

I had two house cats.  One called Tallulah and one called Lily.  Tallulah recently went AWOL.  She darted out of the door one morning and sadly she has never returned.  That was approximately four weeks ago now.  It has been a sad time but eventually the rugrats (aka the 15, 7 and 6 year old) have finally come to terms. That was the first problem.

You know how some say ‘whatever the universe takes away from you, you will receive back ten fold.’  I am a little worried that this may be the case.  Lily also got out of the house about 5 weeks ago.  Thankfully she came back BUT I’ve noticed she seems to be putting on weight and looks a little rounded around the tummy area.  FFS!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! We have just had Coco the crazy cockapoo move in, I cannot cope with a load of kittens running around too.  Please god, just let it be the case that Lily is just putting on a little weight.

And for those thinking the obvious….why has she not been neutered…..she was a house cat, she is almost one now and she has never been out before the other week, so I really did not want to put her through that if she was living indoors with us.  She is happy to be at home and will go out in the enclosed garden and come back in, it was just this one fateful time, and as they say….it only takes once!

I will keep you updated if there are any little additions!

Tallulah Tree Monster

tree monster   one leg

No one warned me that when I got two kittens that Christmas potentially would never be the same!  Since putting up the Christmas tree Tallulah Sparkles has done nothing but climb up the middle, batting out the baubles from behind so she can play football around the living room and kitchen floor.  Additionally, poor caramel santa (whom can be seen in this picture) has lost a leg!  Unfortunately he will remain a casualty forever more as not only did Tallulah rip poor santa’s leg off but also appears to have eaten it as there is no trace of it at all.  I will be genuinely surprised if there is anything left of what was our beautiful tree by Christmas day!

Luckily, Lily Twinkle is not quite as sadistic as Tallulah and is happy chilling out with Father Christmas and his helper 🙂

Life is like a box of chocolates….

Forest Gump

I am sure we are all familiar with the film Forrest Gump staring Tom Hanks. (If you are not, then you can read about it here and its a film I recommend everyone watches at least once in their life time http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109830/ ) or watch the trailor….

The film is famous for one quote in particular:

forest gump

“My momma always said life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” Forrest Gump

I love this quote and think this is how life should be lived.  Making a decision on which chocolate you want next – you may not always enjoy it, but you can always move onto another! Life is the same we make decisions every day.  Sometimes these decisions can turn out to be a bad choice but you can change it.  Life is what you make it, and it is not always necessary to have the menu  in front of you.  Sometimes it is OK for you to throw that chocolate menu in the bin, throw caution to the wind and just pick one of the chocolates out of the box by chance.  You never know you may just like what you choose!

Just like life, it is not always necessary to know where you are going in life, you just need to take the first step!

So go on I dare you…..throw away those instructions and see where life takes you….or you could start with the box of chocolates 🙂

Do not listen to these guys (they do not look very happy)…..B
