Am loving my new coat!!!

SAM_0852b New coat!!!  Yes, doesn’t take too much to make me excited.  🙂

But I’m absolutely loving it.  You know those faux fur fleece blankies – those incredibly soft ones?  Well – the coat is like that inside!


To be honest, I didn’t have a clue what it was gonna be like, as it was ordered online… and when all you got is a pic to go by, it’s always a wee bit of a worry until it arrives.

So, I was dead chuffed when it was absolutely lush.  And the good thing about it, not being from a high street store is that hopefully I won’t be wandering around with it on, and seeing tons of others wearing the same (one year I had a Next coat – I swear half the female population of the UK had the same blooming coat).


What’s even better… I won it.  🙂

Well, technically I won credit to the store, but as this is what I picked, it became my prize.

I also got a dress, and a jumper for my credit, so over the moon with my goodies.  🙂


Coat is from Sheinside.  Their clothes are CHEAP.  And I mean… really cheap.  Delivery is as expected (I often order from Asia… and generally it takes between 7-10 days.  Quickest I’ve had something arrive is 5 days… and longest is about 2 weeks)… but the “processing time” (what the heck is that supposed to mean?) took what felt like forever before it got sent off… but then again, if you’re not in a hurry, having to wait a couple of weeks before the clothes are shipped off shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

However, I think the clothes has been made for tiny little elven creatures like Kylie Minogue!  I got the coat in Large, but it’s more like a M (this was anticipated, which is why I got large)… and my dress and jumper is “one size” (one size for petite 12 year olds – hahahaha).  I really liked them, so thought I’d chance it, considering it wasn’t costing me anything.  🙂

The jumper fits, and will be used, but it is a size smaller than I would have prefered.  The dress however…  oh my goodness – my derriere is atleast 2 sizes too big for it.  Hahahahaha.


And if you fancy trying to win some vouchers yourself, there’s loads of contests over on Polyvore for credit at stores!  And even if you don’t fancy playing virtual dress-up in the hope to win something, it’s loads of fun making other sets too!  Think of it like a very tidy and attractive Pinterest… you pick the items you like, and add them together in a set:


Home sets, fashion sets, arts & crafts, beauty, art and impression, hair styles… basically anything you want.  🙂


What’s cuter than a basket full of kittens?


Not much really…  😀

Although I think the pics below will melt the coldest of hearts!

Here’s the litte mini-babies (as I still call the other two the “babies”, although they’re closing in on Pie in size) – pics take today:



The above is the handsome Teddy (Theodore)!



And the above is the adorable princess Mara (Tamara)!



And above we got the gorgeous Timmy (Timothy)!



And last but not least, we got the adorable Tommy (Thomas)!


All four were named in Tia’s memory.  All four are absolutely massive!!!  And all of them are talkers, and will start talking as soon as they see you.  🙂


My two kittens love their little sister and brothers, and a fave is to groom them.  As the mini-kittens are getting more and more active (they can now climb the chair), they’re starting to play together more and more.  Can’t wait to see the six of them racing about.


And my two are now nearly adult size!  They’re a force of destruction, and the wall paper is being ripped, all furniture scratched, and all curtains are getting shredded (they also managed to tear down a curtain pole the other day!)…  and they’re the cuddliest little kitties ever!

They’re both squeeze in on the lap, not caring if a dog or two is there already.  Complete and utter purr-machines.



Baby pics!

Babies, although not sitting still, actually stayed in one area for a few minutes – so here’s baby pics!!!

Sorry, all pics straight from the camera.  🙂

Had just taken down some old curtains that Pie had ruined, and both her and her kiddies had loads of fun play about in them.

My scrumptious boy modelling:


My gorgeous boy was modelling in the garden today, starting off with showing me his claws, just incase I forgot to pay him for his work.  😉

Don’t worry, he was paid in shrimp afterwards – so I’m not covered in scratches, and got a very happy boy indeed.  Excuse the slightly blurry pics, I’m using my left eye (as the right one is covered up) in the view finder… something I clearly need a wee bit of practice on.  Nevermind, he’s still as handsome as sin.  😀

And some rollig about showing off his gorgeous big tummy:



Look at what arrived today!!!  Eeeeeeeek – so excited!  Massive big thank you’s goes to Victoria Plumb and Tots100 – am absolutely over the moon.  😀

Am so uber excited – we’ll be getting a new fridge.  Have been drooling over the super fridge freezers over at John Lewis, and cannot wait to order one… although I shall be doing my very best not to order it for a couple of weeks.

We’re moving the washing machine out of the kitchen, as we need to think of how we’re gonna do the layout when we start redoing the kitchen… so I shall try not to order until the washing machine is out and we can assess the space… whether I can restrain myself from ordering for a couple of weeks remains to be seen.  😀

Was gonna treat ourselves with the leftovers…. but I think we will save what’s left for a little while instead, and save up the difference for a new cooker.  I have to say, our cooker is amazing though.  Ancient, but amazing.  Well… ok, so one of the rings stopped working a few years ago, but the oven on it is pure magic (have to admit I’m not too chuffed the oven never really turns off completely, but instead has a nice heat constantly in it) .  Which in turn manages to turn into a problem, as there’s no glass on the doors, and if you forget to check things each minute you’re bound to end up with charcoal instead of dinner.  Nevertheless… it’s amazing!  Pizzas done in minutes, and we’ve learnt (read:  the other half) to make perfect roasts in it.  🙂

And to add to the good news – I managed to get a picture of my two adult kitties together.  Yes, it’s a rubbish picture – but I hurried as quickly as I could (which is’t very quick at the moment… been having a few bad days) and of course Monkey-Pie jumped down to see me.  But, blurry, and with subjects on the move – it’s still a picture of the two of them together!  😀


This, that, and everything in-between…

I’m just gonna throw everything into one post!  😀

The above is the birthday gift for the eldest grandkid… isn’t is simply the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?

Other half got roped in to do extra work this weekened, and yesterday I felt ok, so decided to go with him (it was only 5 hours), with the plan to hopefully get an eyetest done on the day, and also to find a gift for the grankid… to be honest, I wasn’t certain I would accomplish either of the tasks in the 5 hours.

However, third optician I tired could test my eyes on the day!  Yay!  (More about that further down), and whilst I waited I popped into Primark… and spotted the dress.  Not just any dress.  The dress.  Oh how I wish they’d had it in my size!!!  But alas, I had to make do with one age 3-4 years.  😀

And then I spotted the sandals.  Oh how I wish they had them in my size!  Hahahaha!   And a big thank you to the lady who happened to be there with her three year old kid, and help me out getting the right size sandals.

Of course I couldn’t help myself, and added some stretchy bracelets, a hairband and some uber-cute sun glasses too.  All in all, the whole bunch, came out to only £17.50!


I was so lucky with the optician… not only that I could get an appointment on the day, but they were absolutely brilliant.  From the friendly and happy ladies in the shop, to the fab gent that tested my eyes.  I was well impressed.  And well chuffed hearing that my eyes are in perfect health (now nearly 2 months with massive eye floaters… it’s like living in a 1950s sci-fi film with UFO invasion coming at me)… which means there’s some tablets that I will be trying to score with the docs this week!  😀

Not gonna go into the whole doc saga at the moment, lets just say my doc has turned around completely (to the point he apologised for giving the impression he was a shitty doctor) – and I’m being referred to a specialist.  Yay!  But with eyes having been given the go-a-head, there’s some pills I could try until I see the specialist (it is however pills they won’t be too willing to hand out, nor pills I’m too happy about taking… but they might work… and at the moment, even a “might” is like a gift from the gods).

Anyway, if you ever need to have your eyes tested in Aberdeen, go see Jenson & Ledingham – they’re brilliant.


3 of the gorgeous little kittens are now with their new families…. and I’m not certain whether to make a smiley or sad face.  I’m overjoyed that they have gotten loving forever homes, but am missing them.  Little Claudia has gotten a whole big family that loves her to bits, and the two boys went with their new mummy today, and she was completely smitten with them.

The other two are still with us.  Loads of people interested… but none that I’ve been willing to let my little babies live with.  It’s very hard, but I’d rather they stay, than me not being 100% certain that they would get the perfect home.

Ms Monkey-pie’s boobies are dissappearing nicely – and if everything goes to plan she will be spayed this week!  😀


And on the subject of kitties – the kitties all tried the catfood Encore this week!  Oh my goodness was this a big hit!!!  Absolutely loved it, and no wonder – this stuff looks amazing – and doesn’t stink of goodness knows what, like all other catfood does… it smelt like fish.  It looked like fish.  Actually it looked a heck of a lot nicer than the cans of tuna I get for myself (myself, and myself… if a can of tuna is opened both cats and dogs get their share).  I know what to stock up on when the zombies comes… me and the kitties can share some Encore.  Hahahahaha.


And Boo’s gotten a tick.  Aaaaaaaaargh!  I fucking hate ticks… horrible creatures.  *shudders*  Spotted it this morning, and was hoping the other half could deal with it when he comes home tonight… but in the end I simply couldn’t stomach the thought of it, and had to remove the bastard.  First (and hopefully only) tick of the year, which means tick treatment from now until Autumn.


Otherwise I’ve caught up on The Walking Dead (I had seen season 1 and 2, but lost interest… and now tried season 3 again – and it was awesome (I you lost interest end of season 2, like I did – give it a go again – it’s get better!  So caught up on both season 3 and 4, and now cursing as there’s no more episodes.  Grrrrr), and now at a little loss of what to see.  I’m following Game of Thrones and Orphan Black, but I need something for the other nights of the week.

Meet the gang:


In the order they were born, here’s the gang:



Peter is the smallest, but he’s also the sweetest!  He’s got the prettiest pink little nose, and him and his brother loves having their tummy tickled.  😀




Ooooo – this one’s gonna be touble!  She’s clearly the brains of the gang, first one to drink by herself, and the only one that’s starting to eat.  She will come running, whilst meowing her tiny little head off as soon as she sees you, and then depserately trying to climb up the legs until you pick her up.




She’s absolutely stunning… the prettiest of them all, and she clearly knows it already, as she loves to pose.  And I love how one of her front legs are whie, with a sassy tabby stripe on it.




She loves to play – whether her brothers and sisters wants to or not.  As she grows I think she will be so beautiful, as she’s got the sweetest round head.




He’s got Ms Monkey-pies long legs, and he loves to hop about.  Tummy tickles are a big hit, and here he’s getting one from his mummy.
