I took a little inspiration from Danielle over at Sometimes Sweet for this post!


Feeling: Relieved.  One of our cats, Whiteface, was involved in an accident over the weekend and was badly injured; he ended up having his leg amputated :( Fortunately the rest of him was okay, bar some scratches, so he was allowed to come home on Monday.  Poor little mite! He's feeling a bit down and is sleeping a lot, but we're all so glad to have him home and to know that he will be okay.  After losing another of our cats in an accident, we worry every time the kits go out because you can never be sure they will make it back in one piece.  It hits home just how much they are a part of your family when something like this happens; we love our little fur babies!

Watching: I've had a real urge to watch all of the Studio Ghibli movies I can get my hands on!  I caught some of 'Princess Mononoke' the other day and since then, I keep vowing to make time to sit and watch them.  Do you have a favourite Studio Ghibli film?  I'm torn between 'Howl's Moving Castle' and 'My Neighbour Totoro'!  And now that 'The Walking Dead' has finished, I'm really keen to start watching a different series - any suggestions?

Listening To: Kate Bush - 'The Whole Story'.  I -adore- Kate Bush (who just happens to be my namesake - thanks Mum!) and this album is *so good*!  I love all of the songs on it, and remember listening to them on repeat when I was 14-15 years old (almost ten years ago, cripes!).  I'm especially loving Experiment IV at the moment - have a listen to it here and tell me what you think!

Looking Forward To: The weekend!  I'm lucky to have the whole weekend off (since I worked the whole last one!) so I intend to spend it giving the cats so many snuggles, playing lots of video games, finishing off the scarf I started before Christmas (!) and baking!  I've got savoury scones and some kind of cake planned; completely been inspired by Anna Olson and want to make everything she has ever baked!  I'm thinking an attempt at macarons; have you ever tried baking something that like?  I'd love to know how it turned out!

I hope you guys are having a great week ^_^ Do you have something awesome planned for the weekend?  Fingers crossed the weather lady told me right today and we're going to have some sunshine and warmth!  Has Spring finally arrived?  Woo!  Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Oh no, I'm glad your cat is safe! i can't even imagine how sad I'd be if that happened to my dog!

    This weekend I'll be doing a volunteer trip so I'll be camping and building running trails! I'm pretty excited to get outside and camp. Hopefully the warm weather comes my way as well!

    1. Ahh, your weekend sounds fab! I'll keep my fingers crossed for lovely weather ^_^ Hopefully Spring has finally sprung in these parts - it feels like winter has been six months long >.<
