DIY CENTRAL

days out in lincolnshire this summer

This week has mostly been all about DIY. I’ve completely destroyed the house this week and I mean that in a good way. I revarnished the living room floor, it was a long time coming but I wasn’t going to do it last week due to having guests over for last week’s summer fiesta! Not only have I done that but I also took two windows out by myself and took a side out of the kitchen.

The windows that I took out were separating the kitchen and the conservatory from one another, I thought not only does taking the windows out make the space more sociable it will also be absolutely lovely when it’s raining outside and I can hear that rain in the kitchen as well as the conservatory. We do have double doors that separate the two doors but due to the dog wars, they stay shut.

The kitchen side that I decided to move has gone into the conservatory and has made a really cute breakfast bar area, it also has the fish tank on to! SO whilst I have made the house perfect for listening to the rain, we’re not getting any rain.

Messingham Zoo – Perfect for Days out in Lincolnshire this summer!

Messingham zoo is a new wildlife park in the Lincolnshire area. If you’re from around Lincolnshire, I’d highly recommend that you go and visit this place, not only are the prices great but the people that work there are the absolute loveliest and not only that you’re allowed to touch practically all of the animals. The absolute highlight of my day was holding a baby continental giant bunny. OH MY GOD. I could have actually cried. They were so flaming cute I could barely contain myself. I did take my camera with me however, I was too engrossed in what was going on around me to care about anything else. Even taking photographs.

 How bloody cute is this baby rabbit?! YES, THAT IS A BABY!!!! 10 WEEKS OLD!

MY MUM GOT A BIRD AND IT’S SO BLOODY AMAZING!

We’ve never really had a bird in the family, so the day my mum brought one home was pretty ace. I was so giddy and excited to go meet it. It took me 2 days before I gave in and had to go meet the little cutie. Her name is Saffy. She is 12 weeks old I think my mum said and honestly, is the most friendly little bird in the world and took quite a shine to my hair, especially pulling the grips out of my hair.

◈ Living With 13 Pets

◈ Living With 13 Pets

24 years old, living with my partner and over the 4/5 years that we have lived together have managed to work up the collection of 12 furbabies. I say we lightly as it is mainly me, I am the one obsessed with anything fluffy that also has a pulse.

We have 2 cats, Nanny(6) & Caspar(2). 2 Dogs, Noah(4) & Alfie(2). 2 Guinea Pigs, Nev & Nial (Both 3). Fish (They count as 1 cause they are well easy to keep!) and 6 Rabbits(that are all under a year old), Healy, Benji, Olive, Pip, Bronson & Little Blue.

It was all going so well before my birthday this year, we had a healthy amount of animals, in pairs. However, My mum bought me a rabbit for my birthday and it escalated from there. I became completely and utterly obsessed with bunnies. I mean, how can you not? They’re just so cute and funny to watch.

My fur babies have enhanced my life a considerable amount. I love my animals more than anything in the whole world and when I sit and watch them all living together in harmony I get a warm fuzzy feeling fill my entire body, the feeling of what can only be described as unconditional love.

I have dedicated a room in my home to my bunnies and guineas. The bunnies have free roam of the house usually but only do their business in litter trays provided in their room. At night I lock them in there with there to ensure they don’t get up to no good when there are no eyes watching them.  Olive and Healy love running around the house and binkying around every corner.

I do have to sweep ‘budget bunny island’ every morning because even though they do most of their business in their provided litter trays there are droppings that they’ve created floor art with and spread their sawdust and hay everywhere.

so, all in all; over the summer it hasn’t been that bad looking after the fluffy bunch, however when I eventually go back to college in two weeks time I feel as though I might struggle to keep on top of the housework. However, because I am already in a routine it shouldn’t be too hard. I just need to ensure I get up 20 minutes earlier every day to make sure that I have time to maintain my happy buns.

My pigs don’t require much, they’re very much happy in their cage munching and are only interested in communicating with you if you’re offering them a strawberry or broccoli.

Life is never boring with a number of animals I have and each and every one of them have completely different personalities and it really is comical sometimes, especially when Healy and Noah are fighting over who gets to chew up the football.

People tend to think I am crazy for having a number of animals that I have because of a couple of reasons;

1. I am allergic to pretty much all of them.
2. My house isn’t big enough for 12 animals.
3. I am running out of places to keep them all.

Life is busy, a little hectic at times and lazy days are almost never available but I am surrounded by little creatures who love me and make me happy when I am feeling poopy.

Stay Happy & Healthy,
