My Furry Child! - Keke

In 2012, I saw a photo of a pair of kittens one of which needed a home and got asked if I wanted it, this is that photo. The sweetest ball of fluff I ever did see. My answer was very obvious.

I came home and got this sweet bundle of joy placed into my hands and teared up at how wonderfully tiny she was, perfect beyond belief! Watching her slowly get used to her surroundings and her waiting in the window for me to get back from sixth form, she would willfully choose to sleep beside me and was the most playful and harmless feline friend! 

She would sit with me (or rather on top of my equipment) when I was sketching, fall asleep on me when I was watching TV and think that laying on top of all my coursework was incredibly helpful!
She was and always has been both relaxed and playful, a true character and a friend more than a pet. When upset she would lay with me and when I left for a week she would greet me by the door and cry for me to pick her up when I returned.

Two years later, she got herself a little brother! Which meant of course, it was time for a vet appointment. I took her in and she got a check up before leaving her to get her operation (looking absolutely terrified and making me feel incredibly guilty for leaving her there)

I picked her up later that day to a very sleepy keeks! She had a bandage on her arm (which had roosters on it, pretty cute) and a shaved patch with some stitches! 

She ended up sleeping in my room for the next four weeks so that I could keep an eye on her so she didn't bite them and that the other cats wouldnt play too roughly with her! Her angsty teen days had quit and she became dependent on me for love and attention for those four weeks!

Keke is most definitely back in her teen stage right now, shes a complete brat that runs back and forth sliding along the wooden flooring like a kid in cotton socks! Spends her days being told off for climbing on top of the TV and runs up to me and meows sticking her tongue out like a goat when she wants food! The prettiest of faces.

I am the proudest owner ever! She is the most beautiful little kitten that loves everyone she comes in contact with, she loves every dog, every cat and every human she sees, shes adventurous and playful and my tiny best friend. 

All cats have different characteristics about them and all of them are different, thats the great thing about them, some are very independent, others not so much. Some want to jump around and have a fuss every 10 minutes, others just want to sleep! There's a kitten friend for everyone and they are incredibly loving friends indeed! 110% consider getting one! But not Keke...Keke is mine!

Game of Thrones Coasters

As someone who's a huge fan of simplicity in rooms, details in the items I use around the house are important, you can tell a lot about a person by their house and/or their bedroom. Me? I like neutral colours, plain and simple, with a couple of photos and plants here and there. 

Something I needed was drinks coasters! I can't have mug marks on a clean white wooden side table! No no no no no...!

Etsy was my savior, it's full of unique and wonderful crafts, my favourite website ever! I was looking for something to do with any of my favourite TV shows (preferably something to do with Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad or Sons of Anarchy!) but something that wasn't going to cost me a fortune (I did come across some fantastic leather AND stainless steel coasters with house sigils in them, but way too expensive) before I came across these beauties!

I bought them from 'UnofficiallyOriginal'. There was an option of 3 coasters in this set, Direwolf Stark 'Winter lager', Lannister Golden Lion 'blonde ale' or Baratheon black stag! They're £2 each and excellent! They're very clear and perfect size for even my bigger mugs (not to mention large pint glasses! winner!) 

Something that's a pro to these coasters are the fact that the clear sides are actually slightly raised, meaning any liquid whether it be a full cup that slightly spills over when the mugs put down, or the cold droplets from an ice cold glass that trickle down, are going to be caught on the coaster, rather than trickling off of it. My hands are very shakey, so this is a massive bonus for me, forever spilling my drink when I put it back down!

The shop owner was incredibly polite, I bought another item from his store (He sells badges, keyfobs, fridge magnets, charms, coasters and more!) in which the etsy store wasn't putting together, meaning it made me pay for p+p twice! I messaged him and he replied very quickly ensuring that he would refund my second p+p payment and ensure that the 3 items were sent together. Fantastic service! Would recommend!

5/5! Buy Game Of Thrones Coasters - Click Here!

Custom Made Seananners T-shirt, Spreadshirt

If you're following my blogger, you already know I'm a huge fan of Adam Montoya (Youtube name - Seananners) This man is my absolute hero, with daily 2-4 minute videos of him playing video games with friends, making me laugh just by hearing his!

I've been a fan for so long now, and I never fail to keep up to date with his life via social media whether it be his facebook page, twitter or instagram. His wonderful girlfriend Cathy (Catabot) is also another incredible human being that I enjoy keeping up to date with, and just recently she posted a photo of the wondrous nannerman on her instagram with the caption 'Guess who is pet sitting tonight! :D #totesadorable' (Photo to the right)

I completely fell in love with this picture instantly, and showed my friend who originally introduced me to Montoya. Desperately wanting it on a t-shirt to proudly wear wherever I go, my friend being the absolute babe he is, helped me out! Cut out all the background and left me with a simple design, and put it together on spreadshirt for me with the link, said "There you go! choose a size and shirt style!" boom. DONE!

Payday came, I bought this shirt. It was a treat to myself for working my ass off recently! Plus I already have all the Seananners merch (He definitely needs to make more designs!) so this felt like it was my very own that no one else was ever going to have, made it feel 100x better when it finally arrived!

I've never used spreadshirt before, so the quick arrival of this shirt made me more than willing to want to use the site again to get more of my favourite youtubers and own designs on a shirt, especially when it arrived so crisp and clean! I'm already planning on getting the baby SeaNanners from the animated 'More Watermelons Less Crack' video, as it's my absolute favourite and completely adorable!

Adam, I thank you for making everyday one in which I can laugh for 3 minutes straight, even if I've watched the video 10 times before, they never fail to make my day. 


The shirt! I adore it!
