We have 2 new additions to the family- Betty Sue and Lily Rose! They are guinea pigs, we have been talking about getting some for a while for Beauty and have finally managed it. Betty Sue is a ginger colour whilst Lily Rose is shades of brown and they are so sweet
Betty Sue is named after Ariel and Lily Rose is named after Fiona,Lily Rose is also a character in the book The Family From One End Street.We have bought them an indoor cage for now but we will also buy them an outdoor cage as well.
Beauty is not too sure of them at the moment,we shall see.

It seems to have been raining all day.
When we visited New Orleans in September it would rain and then 5 minutes later the rain had stopped and the streets were dry, no such luck here. Good for the ducks and my flowers and the reservoirs. The pet shop floor was flooded when we got there though no pets paddling around.

They are so cute!!!!

I'm afraid to hold them because I'm convinced I'll drop them and hurt them!

ps If my daughter worked at IKEA, we would be in the poor house. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that store.

Ok, now I'm persevorating. Thanks.

Ikea, Ikea, Ikea...



I am afraid our house is the Kingdom of Ikea ,every room has something IKEA in it.
Due to the total lack of storage,the Bastant basket seems to be the basket of choice when it comes to storage(sad that I know the name!).I also have lots of different types of twinkle lights which are up all year round(a teenage fashion it seems!)
Also, because of Beauty eventually destroying everything she comes into contact with I either have antique farmhouse type furniture(been around for years and not likely to destroy!)or IKEA because it is such good value and doesn't cost a lot to replace.
We even have IKEA bikes which the girls were given as Christmas presents from IKEA!
I also love IKEA fabric(as can be seen from my recent sandwich bag make)but IKEA and I vacillate in our love for each other.I do realise that IKEA employees are responsible for my feelings(you get idiots everywhere) and IKEA is not to blame but it still upsets me. Ariel broke her toes twice this last year and because of accidents with army cadets, she intends to join army officer training after university and was told that she was on report for missing work(hell she couldn't work)and that she shouldn't engage in activities outside of work that will interfere with her ability to work part time at IKEA.Oh please, I really think that they have a grandiose, self-inflated opinion of themselves.Ariel however continues to work there,she love the food - healthy option is free for employees and of course the money helps to feed her addiction for PRIMP type clothes and hooded sweat shirts(and I of course get a discount on purchases!).




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
