jigsaw coming together + house rearranging

Good morning all, Hope everyone is doing well wherever you are reading this from. My week was pretty standard, working, caring for my animals and sleeping. We have also made huge progress on the Jigsaw puzzle you would have seen in the previous Blog post, which you can clearly see now is an African Elephant which once complete I am hoping to hang up somewhere in my bedroom as I have a Safari theme already happening in there but we will see. We decided to make it easier in assembling the Jigsaw that we would have to rearrange the house a little bit to add an extra table in to the mix. Taking the trestle table out of the bird room and adding it on to the dining room table made adequate amount of space to make it easier in finishing the Jigsaw.  Pictured below is what the dining room looked like before the rearranging started... As you can see the Jigsaw barely fits on the table as it is, but now we have HEAPS of room. It doesn't look to bad either. We have another Jigsaw puzzle to as

a nice weekend + update

Good morning everyone, hope y'all are doing well! Where do I begin with today's blog post. I have been wanting to start a Jigsaw puzzle for ages now, and I finally went out to Mr Toys and purchased one for me to tackle through it. Turns out I needed some team work and I got my Mum and Brother to give me a hand, we have managed to get the outer part of the Jigsaw assembled! Now I won't be telling what the picture on the Jigsaw is because I want everyone to take guess, I will give you a hint...  It's a Safari animal! On another note. Miss Violet is getting so big compared to when we got her, she had her third and final shot on Friday and she is now allowed to go out on walks without the risk of catching Parvovirus. I will be waiting however til she is a little bit bigger in size as I am really struggling to find a suitable Harness for her to wear, they are all so big on her. I have purchased five already and only one kind of fits her but once she gets a bit bigger in size

i got a malchi puppy

Good morning everyone! I am a bit late in introducing y'all too my new two month old puppy, but I wasn't even looking to buy a new puppy for awhile but my Aunt wasn't coping well with her so I swooped in and offered to purchase her as a playmate for Scarlett when I am not around. The new puppy is a Maltese X Chihuahua, and her name is Violet. She has definitely taken more after the Chihuahua as you will see in the photos below! Isn't she an absolutely adorable, Scarlett couldn't be happier to have a new little playmate in the house. I must say though Scarlett definitely does get carried away when playing with her and has made her yelp a couple times, so I need to watch them whenever they are playing because Violet is still very small compared to Scarlett and I don't want her getting injured. I am looking forward to when she is fully grown  and once she has her final vaccinations so I can start walking her in the mornings, I have had to put a hold on walking Scar

Morning fellow readers! Another blog post and it hasn't been two months yet? This week I decided to upgrade my Fluval Flex to a bigger aquarium, as I wanted to get more fish to try out as having the same fish for awhile does get quite boring. I purchased the 16 Gallon (60L) Fluval Curve, my previous Fluval was only 7 Gallons (30L) so it was a fairly small aquarium and it really did hold me back from owning more fish. Little miss Scarlett guarding the new edition to her bedroom after it got delivered to the house. I had already had a scape planned for this aquarium before I even ordered it, I was aiming purely for a lush heavily planted look and I think once the plants grow in my goal will be complete! The current stocking in this aquarium is Four Swordtails, Eleven Harlequin Rasboras, Six Bronze Cordydoras Catfish and One Albino Bristlenose Catfish. Now I do plan on attempting to breed my Swordtails as I think that would be something interesting to experience with you guys and bein

what a week can do

Hello everyone! Been a very long time since I have graced you with a blog post. I have been on Annual Leave from my Full time job for the past week and it has made me think about some stuff, such as why as a society do we work most of our lives and miss out on the joys of actually living. Whether that be spending quality time with family or getting out and surrounding yourself with friends, life shouldn't be just about working. After much thinking I thought it would be best for me to request to go Part time so I can work on other passions of mine for a bit, yes money will be a bit tighter but I have feeling everything will work out for the better this way. An added bonus to the request is now I will get to spend Christmas and New Years at home with my pets and family and I couldn't be happier about that, for the past three years I have worked on both these days and it's been exhausting. The photos above were taken roughly over two months ago I'd say, my Mum, Brother, Sc

scarlett got groomed

Good evening everyone, how have y'all been? I decided to get Scarlett groomed on Friday as her long poodle coat just kept matting where her harness sits, which no amount of brushing helped. I was hoping to hold off until the winter months are over so she didn't have to wear a jacket all the time because she absolutely hates wearing one, ends up ending up off of her on the floor somewhere.  As you can see Scarlett's coat before Friday was becoming very long, and being that we go to the beach a lot she gets sand in her hair. It's just a pain in the butt to manage when she gets her long coat. Isn't she just the cutest pup with her new groom, I asked the groomer to give her a "lamb cut" which is commonly used for Show Poodles. I couldn't get her to stand still for me to get a body shot of her so I hope her sitting will suffice.  Well I am off to work now, thought I should quickly get an update on Scarlett out for you guys. I plan on doing an update on all

scarlett had surgery

How's everyone been lately with the colder weather setting in? Last Friday Scarlett went in for her first and hopefully only major surgery — she got spayed. I was dreading leaving her at the vets for the whole day as she's become quite my little companion over the past couple months. I felt empty knowing she wasn't by my side. However she seems to be healing quite well. When I went to pick her up she was extremely groggy and just fell asleep in my arms but two days later you wouldn't know she just had surgery. Scarlett is sporting the cone of shame when I'm not around to stop her from irritating her wound, although they are concealed, dissolvable stitches. I still don't want to risk anything happening. I also purchased Scarlett a new winter coat. I never realised how expensive a doggy coat was until it came to buying one. It cost me $69.00 AUD just for a bit of material! She does look extremely cute in it though so worth the money I guess. *C
