Missing his best friend 😔 #arleythechihuahua #chihuahua
Sadly Twix got hit by a car this morning. We think it would have been almost instantaneous so hopefully he didn’t suffer but it’s particularly heartbreaking as he was seeming so much better this morning after last night’s Vet trip for his infected ear wound. We’re pretty devastated but poor Arley won’t understand at all 😔
Twix 🐈 June 2014-November 2017

Someone got himself in to a pickle again. A cut on his ear which developed into an abscess. Another trip to the vet and another week of antibiotics and painkilling anti-inflammatories. (I think it’s because he has a crush on the Vet - she gives him Dreamies for being such a well behaved cat). #sillytwix #blackcat #rescuecat

My future-step-son rescued a kitten today. They’ve called him Zeus and he’s the teeniest cutest little thing I’ve ever seen😻

Sometimes you need to get up high and feel the wind in your hair and the earth beneath your feet.  Very brief visit to Malvern to pick up exam certificates and have lunch with my parents. I do miss my Hills #malvernhills

Finding ways to cope and learning to see the beauty around me again. First GP appointment to discuss my hair loss later today and I’m trying to think positively 😊

Lots of reading going on while I’m ill. The new Philip Pullman book, The Book of Dust is incredible. I’ve nearly finished it but I don’t want it to end 😩#thebookofdust #philippullman  #arleythechihuahua #chihuahua
Crocheting snowflakes to make a wreath while I’m feeling rubbish with a fluey cold type thing. #crochet #snowflake #crochetsnowflake
I was so excited to visit the @libertylondon Christmas department last week with @roofulness . I could only afford one decoration and I found one that’s perfect for me (@eustaciavillette peacock Christmas is obviously a thing this year!).

I love the way the sunlight plays on the water.

So 2 weeks ago I found a bald patch on my head... I was too scared to look at it or touch it again until last night in case it had got bigger - well it had more than doubled in size. My hair is one on the few things I like about myself physically and is a huge part of my identity and I'm really struggling with this. It's still 12 days until I can see a GP. Some days I feel braver than others. And of course the stress over losing my hair is probably causing a vicious circle and making it fall out faster. I'm lucky that so far it's in a place where it's hidden by the rest of my hair because it's so long but I don't know how long that will last. Does anyone have any experience with alopecia? I feel guilty for being so upset when so many people are struggling with things that are so much more serious. #alopecia #alopeciauk #alopeciaawareness

When you're suffering from severe anxiety, getting the tube by yourself for the first time probably isn't the cleverest thing to do... but I've made it despite anxiety attacks on the way and I get to see Ruth for the rest of the day for the first time since she went to uni.

Arley hates having his nails clipped. After years of struggling and only ever managing one or two at a time I decided to try the grooming place at @petsathomeuk Telford. The lady was lovely and really understanding of his anxiety. As a reward Arley got a nice walk in the woods. #arleythechihuahua #longcoatchihuahua #longhairedchihuahua #chihuahua #dog #ilovemydog
Well of course I couldn't resist this deer from @frompaperchase new Christmas range. And since it's pink and glittery I'm thinking I can keep it out all year!
