post ideas...?


Over the last month or so i feel that my posts haven't been great, and i have taken some time to think about what i want to do for the year ahead. I have been reading more blogs and trying to find different types of posts i could possibly do, but wondered what posts you guys would want to read and haven't come up with much.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could leave some ideas down in the comments.

favourite candles

Its the time of the year when you start to light candles a lot more to make your room or house smell nice (or just for some extra heat).  I have 3 favourites at the moment,m they are all Yankee Candles and all smell great.  Garden Sweet Pea,  Black Coconut, Cranberry Ice.



Cranberry Ice was the first Yankee Candle i had and instantly fell in love with the scent. It is sweet but not over powering.



Black Coconut is nice but it is not a strong smell when it is lit.  



Garden Sweet Pea is probably my favourite one of the three. It has a Sweet smell and is strong, i have also found that it ligures for a long time after the flame has been blown out.



What are your favourite candles??

cute hamster: fudge

I have never had a pet before and I have always been slightly scared of animals, so it was a big step when I decided to actually get a pet.  I've always been told to that to over come your fears you must do whatever it is that scares you.  For years I never understood why everyone was saying that, it seemed silly to do something that scared you, now I understand what was meant by that.  It makes sense now because if you do face your fears then you won't be afraid any more, or at least less afraid.


 When I first got Fudge I didn't have a clue what to call him so I spent ages looking on the Internet for a name and finally came across fudge witch I thought suited him nicely as he is a brown-grey colour.  When we first put him in his cage, he stayed in his box for about 6 hours then moved straight into his house.


After a couple of days he seemed quite settled and happy to wander about in his cage and come to say hello to me if I came to the cage.


Yesterday I managed to get him into his ball while I cleaned out his house and cage.  He was quite nervous and didn't move around much.  I put my hand to the ball so he could smell me so he decided to lick me instead, it made me jump as he's never licked me until then.  We left him in his ball for about 10 mins then took him out and put him in his house.  For the next 2 hours he kept running on his wheel.

When I came down this morning I found him asleep under his wheel, and his bedding from his house was no longer in there but mixed in with the wood shavings.
