::: Friends :::

It's amazing how many wonderful people you meet when you have a blog.

And it's amazing what wonderful gifts these wonderful friends send!

A surprise package containing gorgeous Beatrix Potter and other bunny fabrics, plus funky snuggly jammies (above), all from a friend in Australia:

::: Oh my Kingdom for a horse...ahem, I mean house :::

My very own snugglebunny - Layla

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted a little (but not too little) cottage, with a typical country garden and lots of animals.

I wanted a log burning fire and a wooden kitchen with chickens outside who would lay eggs everyday for our breakfast. A couple of dogs to follow me around the garden while I tend my vegetable patch and, of course, I couldn't live without a bunny or two.

But when Steve and I got together, he sort of changed my world. He is allergic to almost the entire world, including grass, flowers, dogs, dust, you name it – he's allergic to it. (He seems fine with Henrick and Layla so far, *fingers crossed*)

I still hope for the little cottage one day, but now I have to have kennels or a shed for my doggies and probably ducks would be better for him than chickens.

A girl can dream...

::: Back to Reality :::

We had a lovely time in Oban for our very first wedding anniversary. Thank you to everyone who wished us well.

We saw our first Puffin, stayed in a lovely hotel and got soaked to the skin as is typical anywhere in Scotland :)

We hope to go back soon as there was so much we wanted to do and see yet we didn't have the time.

Now we're back home and back to work and it feels like we were never away. It's great to get away from it all. No television, just books, amazing scenery and each other.

::: Another Day :::

So many days start and finish without me even noticing, how can it be that I have been married for a year this Saturday?

To celebrate we are taking some time out and having some fun, exploring a new place and eating some lovely food.

On another note, the past couple of days I have been receiving emails regarding my rabbits. Yes they are house rabbits, this does not mean they don't get freedom. They get the run of the house, are seen by a vet regularly and are healthy, happy bunnies. They get lots of attention and cuddles, better food than even we eat sometimes and will lick you to death if you let them. Please understand that they are my pets and not just for show.

I hope everyone has a great week and have a piece of cake for me on Saturday!
