Pigs in zen…

I turn 40 this month, which means I have to accept that I‘m definitely an adult. Thus I realise that I will not achieve some the things I wanted to when I was grew up. One such thing being, rescuing animals from slaughter.

I’m not fit enough to care for farm animals, so my dreams of saving livestock & showering them with love will not be realised. The next best thing is to visit & support sanctuaries who can do just that. Which brings me to September’s Charity of month. Tribe Sanctuary does exactly what I dreamed of; they rescue and care for animals that might otherwise end up on someone’s plate.

You can visit this gorgeous brood, gift items from their amazon wish list or make a simple cash donation. I have always been passionate about animal rights. I believe all creatures should be respected and cared for. Look at these wee faces & tell me they don’t deserve all the love.

Looking at the Autumn shade…

Last Saturday I was feeling a touch of cabin fever. So, I made myself look as presentable as possible & popped out to see a film.  Sold out movie & other cinema fails put paid to that plan. Hence, we retreated to Starbucks & had a nice long gab. 

I took some pictures thinking they’d be   useless, but it turns out I didn’t look quite as rough as I thought. It’s jumper dress time again & this one combines my fav colour with my go to style. Teamed with my new boots it’s the ideal Autumn ensemble.

Lazy sunday afternoon, got no mind to worry….

Over the last few weeks I have established a new Sunday ritual. My lovely friend Bil comes over for a gab, some food & a drink or two. It’s a perfect relaxing Sunday. I really enjoy cooking & especially love feeding people yummy food. I have been trying some new recipes from Delia’s vegetarian collection. Yesterday we had cheese & herb fritters with balsamic jam, which was delicious. Equally yummy was the frozen berry daiquiri we washed it down with.
It’s still rather hot in Glasgow, so I popped on one of my favourite skater dresses. It’s so comfortable & easy to wear. It also happens to look pretty good. I wore some little black short under it because it is fairly short & also to guard against the dreaded ‘chub rub’.
We took the pictures in my back garden, which the gardener has just rid of weeds. I think if this weather keeps up a barbeque is in order.
