Ragdoll Unicorn

Hi there. Me again. Yeah that person that just keeps coming and going and mental health just gets in the way of me enjoying myself or doing the things I love. It's such a fucker. So while I'm in a good place then why not try and just get on with the things I keep wanting to do and just bloody do them.

Getting that crochet buzz again and loving it! Out of all the patterns out that there to try I took a look through my Pinterest and knew that this Ragdoll Unicorn pattern by Spin a Yarn Crochet was the perfect one to go with. I got the girls to help me out picking the colours for her hair and it just turned out better than I thought.


Ta da! What do you think? How cute is this pattern and it's so easy to do. There are so many other beautiful patterns across Jillian's website so go check her out if you can, I've been making quite a few of them so far that I can share with you soon!

I've missed having the crafting bug and with having had so much going on recently and in my head, getting all crafty has been the best escape for me.

Trip To Woodside Wildlife Park

Now I'm that I'm a full time working mummy, I want to be able to make the most of the summer holidays on the days that I have off and be able to take my girls away on little trips that before I wouldn't of been able to afford or do. So on Saturday, we took a little trip up to Woodside Wildlife Park which is only a 20 minute drive from my house, so with my voucher from a little magazine that the girls got from school for one child free with every two paying adults off we went. Bonus. We were lucky that there weren't so many people there with the weather forecast saying it wasn't going to be amazing so the girls got some amazing views of the animals.




I loved the Meerkats and Otters. I made an ‘awwwing’ noise which can only be described as high enough for dogs to hear. The park had recently had baby Meerkats which sadly we didn’t see, but we did get to see the baby Otters all grown up! Look at how soft their fur is!?



After walking around a bit we came across the Capybara family, (giant guinea pigs) with their three little ones all huddled around Mum while eating. Baby animals bring out the weirdest noises in me I swear. After standing around watching them a little while, we went to watch a show were we got to see a Fox, some birds as well as a few other little animals up close before wandering around some more.


The crocodiles were so still like statues. They only moved once while we were looking at them. I couldn’t get over watching their eyes blink because of the way they moved. Made me feel all funny.




Before the day was over, we went to look have a look at two other shows that were going on, one where we got to see them feed Julia the Tiger and the Lynx cats too, and then a Reptile show where we held a snake and got to stroke some lizards all while a woman stood way too close for comfort with a Tarantula in her hand.
It was a great little day out, we lots of animals seen, lots of cooing over the cuteness of them all and getting to exhaust the girls out on the little play area again. I can’t wait to go back when they get some new animals in!
What’s your favourite animal?

The Hair Diaries

Anyone who knows me, knows that I like to have different colours in my hair or experiment for all that matter with my hair. It's just one of the few things I do like about myself in some matter. My kids love it and so do their friends, I have to be one of the easiest parents for teachers to find in the playground when waiting for them to come out of school. Over the last year, my hair has gone from red to blue, then blonde and now there's some pink in it too! And it's been cut very short. Or short for me. I don't think I've had it this short for well over 10 years.


I've always just done darker colours on my hair until the last year as I never thought that anything near blonde with suit me just because of how naturally pale I am. I think for my birthday this year, I might treat myself and go to this amazing hairdresser in town who is known for her hair colours and see what fancy thing she can come up with for me. 

Do you like to do anything bright and colour or fun with your hair?
