We have a new addition to the family!

I haven’t written or a while life has just gone very manic, I’m officially now back to work 2 and a half days! Also still trying to catch up with the summer holiday’s. I need to write about our week in Lanzarote. But  Last weekend with all the manic going around we got a little addition to our family. We got Woody the kitten!

His so playful and active, Daisy isn’t too keen but Willow has taken him under her paw and is acting like mum!

He is certainly going to be a little character!

I have so much to write about with Christmas just around the corner and then its Easter where we are planning to be out of Kent for a good two weeks! We have already started to plan summer 2018 too! My aim for Summer 2018 is to spend as little as possible at home as its Bell’s last summer before she starts school!

So I will leave you with a few adorable pics of Woody whilst I update the blog…

Pets and Children

When I was Pregnant with Bear, one of my relatives mentioned that I should re-home of my two cats, Patch and Smudge. They were almost 16 years old and had already gone through two house moves with me and they didn’t cope very well.

They were my mums cats so I was very amendment that they would not be going.

When Bear was born Patch wasn’t that interested and ran into the bedroom for peace and quite when Bear cried. He was more interested once Bear was more mobile and would chase the ball when he rolled it.

Smudge however was the most affectionate cat ever to Bear. When Bear cried smudge would sit either outside our bedroom door at night and meow or if I was in the Kitchen he would meow and walk around my legs and sometimes it would be a minute or two before Bear actually woke up.

When Bear was 8 months we were asked to foster a rescue kitten as the animal shelters were full over Christmas (please think before you buy!) and she is still here today.

When Bell was born we only had Patch, we did have Daisy too, Daisy wasn’t fussed but Patch turned into Smudge and was really good with her.

We now have Daisy (5) and Willow (1)  and they are both really good with the children. They do occasionally try and nip but it is usually when they are over excited and lose track of who they are playing with!
