Archives For cats

  • Visiting Walt Disney World in Florida when I was 6 years old. I remember seeing a 3D muppets show, watching the fireworks and eating so much candy floss that I felt sick. We also rented a house and there was a massive pool there.
  • Spending the summers in a caravan, having all my friends around, being able to go swimming whenever we felt like it. As we got older it turned into getting drunk and going swimming instead. Still fun.
  • Visiting my grandparents during the summer. Their garden was so big, and they always had Rhubarb ready to be picked and eaten with some sugar. They also had a small pond where the birds would come and bathe in and we loved watching that.
  • The year when I was in the accident that injured my leg for life (1999), I got so many birthday presents.. I’ve never received so many before and I remember being so happy that so many people were thinking of me when I was in the hospital.
  • Receiving my favorite cat back in 2005. I had found his mother famished the year before and gave her to some people who sheltered cats. They nursed her back to health, discovered she was with kittens and then during the summer of 2005 we got her back along with my favorite little guy. He’s not so small anymore but still my favorite out of the three I have.

  • Going on Christmas holidays to Tenerife. We wen’t about every other year from 2000~ish to 2013. I miss going there, it was nice to gather the family and go somewhere together. Now my brother is married and has moved far away so we can’t do like a traditional family holiday anymore.
  • Christmas Day lunches at my grandparents place. Every year the whole family would gather in their house for a Christmas Day lunch. It was always salmon, fully roasted and lovely. Sadly, both of my grandparents have passed away so we don’t really continue the tradition, it doesn’t feel right without them.
  • Visiting the grocery store with my grandma. She would always buy us these small lollipops and they were so good. Mum wouldn’t let us have candy on the weekdays but grandma always kept it a secret.

It’s always so difficult to think of things to put on a list like this! I guess I’ll just do general facts and hope no one knows them already, hah.

  1. I was born on August 21st, 1991 as the middle child in my family.
  2. I was in a major accident in August in 1999, where I was injured for life. I almost lost my leg, had to learn to walk again and I’m full of scars and my left leg is somewhat disfigured but functional.
  3. I have had cats for as long as I can remember. My current cats are 10, 12 and 15 years old. The two youngest are half brothers (They have the same mother. I don’t know if they know, but they are stuck together like glue, never leaving each other’s side.)
  4. When I was six, our parents brought us to Disney World in Florida. I can’t remember much from it, but I remember the house we rented and tasting alligators in Gatorland. It’s weird how memory works.
  5. When I graduated from high school, I had one of the highest grades.. Then college came around, my teacher hated me and I got the lowest grades for pretty much anything I handed in.
  6. I used to binge drink alcohol all the time.. Never said no to a party. Then, some years ago I realized I hated how alcohol made me feel, so I stopped drinking all together.
  7. Autumn is my favorite season. I love that it gets darker, because that means people with decorate with lights outside. I love listening to the rain all the time, and I won’t have to feel bad about spending my time inside.. I also don’t have to keep my curtains shut to keep the sun out anymore.
  8. I’m somewhat addicted to collecting succulents. Sadly, a couple of them has perished but the ones I have left thrive more than ever. I suppose I need to invest in a few more soon.
  9. I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I still dont… I kind of want to work in a library, work with translating texts or work in an archive.. Not too keen on working with people so those are the best options.
  10. I really don’t like talking about myself. My anxiety always makes me feel like nothing I say is worth listening to so I tend to only listen in conversations, not really participating with anything new.

 

Is there anything people don’t know about you?

The Happiness Tag

August 7, 2017 — 18 Comments

I was tagged in this by my friend Rylie, but she didn’t want her blog linked because she writes about very personal subjects so I’m afraid I can’t do that! But thank you for the nomination either way, I really appreciate it.


The rules for this tag

  • List five things that makes you happy
  • Share five songs that makes you happy
  • Tag at least five bloggers that makes you happy

What makes me happy

  1. My cats. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They are always there if I need someone to vent to (even though they can’t talk back, I still talk to them about anything I need to). They are always there if I need something to hold, something to cuddle with to cheer me up. I love them more than anything in this world. They say cats are selfish but mine are far from it.
  2. Books. I love being able to read. Being able to escape to another world for a little while. Same goes for video games. Escapism is very much a real thing for me and a lot of the time it happens without me even noticing.
  3. Being able to connect with people all over the world. I live in a place with very few people and meeting new people is a difficult task. That is why I am so grateful for having the internet, being able to connect with others without having to travel to a place to do so. I guess ‘without restrictions’ is what I meant to say.
  4. Nature. Nature makes me happy. I love being outside, I love exploring the woods, walking through fields, picking the occasional berry as I walk past them. Nature is wonderful and the fresh air can always make you feel better. (Apart from during the pollen season, I always feel like death then).
  5. Being organized, that always makes me happy. I hate being messy, I hate not having things neatly put in place. Having a clean and organized home is my favorite feeling. It really helps me with feeling accomplished in life. Doesn’t matter how messy my head is as long as my home is clean.

Five songs that makes me happy

I don’t really have any overly joyful happy songs, so I’ll share some that makes me feel content, makes me feel wholesome. I think I have shared all of these before, but my favorites rarely change.

  1. Pvris – Half
  2. Meg Myers – Motel
  3. Blink 182 – I Miss you
  4. Highly Suspect – Bath Salts
  5. Chaos Chaos – Do you feel it

Five bloggers that makes me happy

I guess it’s more than 5, oops. And in no particular order.

  1. Michala
  2. Karalee
  3. Reeva
  4. Rei
  5. Storm
  6. Grace
  7. DanniiJane ( you can just share your response in the comments, it probably doesnt fit in with the travel blogs 🙂 )
  8. Abby
  9. Lisa (hey this isn’t an award! 🙂 )

A cuddly surprise!

I have had three days off from work and today when i came in i heard little squeaks from a corner.. My employer’s cat has been waddling around with a really big tummy for a while now but no one quite knew when her little fur babies would arrive.. Apparently they did on Saturday! So now i kind of get paid to look after the little kittens.. I love cats, i have three myself and I am so tempted to “steal” one of these home with me when they get old enough.

One of them  wouldn’t stop squeaking when his mommy was in the kitchen to eat and drink a bit so i carried him around with me, he settled down quickly and I’m pretty sure he fell asleep…

So yeah, i just wanted to share the joy, i hope you have a good day! I can’t wait to go in to work tomorrow to see how they’re doing.

Feels like summer.

The past days it has only been raining.. I don’t mind rain, but i hate the thunder and lightning that almost always follows. It scares the life out of my cats too so i have to make sure all three are okay and that is quite the task when they all hide in different places.. And also the lack of internet sucks.. Whenever a thunderstorm approaches, we have to unplug every in the house, it is kind of annoying.

How has your summer been? Had any better weather than we have?
