The Elephant

I lost my shit today, sadly with those that care the most about me, my family. I lost my shit over something that wasn’t their fault, but something that has been bubbling up inside of me for a while. Blake has eczema, the same as Dexter had, but sadly it’s on her face so very … Continue reading

Whilst You’re Here

We’re a busy, noisy household. 2 adults, 2 children, 1 cat and who knows how many fish.

Happy Zoo Year

Happy Zoo Year

The very lovely OH surprised Dexter and I on Boxing Day with some annual passes to Whipsnade Zoo.  What a love he is! Before we were even parents we would often visit wildlife parks and zoo’s together, and Dex is animal mad so we plan to use the passes as often as possible. With the … Continue reading
