i wasn’t planning to do a highlights of 2017 kind of post, but i really wanted something to look back on to remind me 2017 wasn’t all bad.

it definitely wasn’t. but sometimes it’s easier to remember the bad over the good, especially if you’re a pessimist like me! not a trait i’m proud of, and something i have been trying over the years to ..soften.

i thought i’d include some goals and plans for the next year too. i’ve never been a resolution maker, but i’ve definitely learned this year being organised (or trying to) really helps, and so by writing some things down it will help to motivate me. i hope it’ll motivate you too and i’d really love to hear some of your highlights, as well as goals/plans if you’d like to share with me!

well, more specifially ava when she was a kitten ;)

when asked to recall your favourite pet stories, do you have one that is always guaranteed to entertain? one that’s stood the test of time, or that makes you laugh or think nostagically every time?

to be honest, i couldn’t say i have one specific memory or story about ava that stands tall above the rest. i guess, apart from one. cliche as it is, the first few days that we got her, as well as deciding her name. it was between rita, brenda (after my boyfriends nan), and ava. we couldn’t decide so put the names in a hat ava it was meant to be!

that tiny, cheeky, fluffy, ferocious bundle of energy. with huge absolutely crazy eyes that made us fall instantly in love with her.
