Filip


Hey Guys! I would love to introduce you to someone! It's Filip, my seven-month-old son. It's been ages since my last post here, over a year to be exact and I have been really missing blogging so I thought I might give you a little update. :-)

We are doing very well. I am really enjoying being a mum and he is such a bundle of joy and energy.
I am incredibly lucky to work from home now and get to watch him grow up. 

The beginnings were pretty difficult and it took us a while to find our routine, but once it did, everything seems to be much easier and I even find time to follow my hobbies.

If you want to see more of us, please follow me on MY INSTAGRAM as I am there more often.

I am pregnant!


I feel like I often start a post this way but again, if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably already know that me and Daniel are expecting our first baby in December. Writing this post I am almost 14 weeks pregnant and still constantly feeling like a ship on a choppy sea. I cannot wait to meet this little rascal to let him/her know what I think of that behaviour. 

I think we can also blame the baby for my recent absence. I've been experiencing all possible symptoms of pregnancy you can google, including pretty severe sickness and drowsiness. 

Not really surprisingly, I guess, the pregnancy hast taken over my whole life, my thoughts and body and although I have already had three scans and had a chance to see the little wriggly one and listen to his/her heartbeat, it's still so surreal and hard to believe that we did it, especially we'd been trying for a while. We feel so blessed and happy!

Lastly, I am so thankful for all the comments and messages I received after announcing the pregnancy on my social media. You cannot imagine how much they all mean to me and I still remember the little moment of the announcement when I couldn't focus on working, continuously scrolling through all my accounts and pages instead. Thank you guys so much! 

ps. please excuse my serious face in the pictures, that was one of the difficult days I am writing about above. :p

Hollie


Hi guys! Please let me introduce you to our new family member, Hollie. She is two years old and she comes from Romania. You might think she is a Royal corgi and I have to tell you I secretly think the same although she also reminds me a bit of a fox too. We've had her for over three weeks now and we have all completely fallen in love with her (ok, maybe except Lolek) .

She is a lovely dog, very good with cats and other dogs, very obedient and obsessed about going out and playing in our local parks. She also loves to roll, that's how she shows her excitement and happiness.

She limps a bit as she was hit by a car in the past and she is wary of some men, probably due to being mistreated in the past and terrible conditions in majority of Romanian kill shelters. I've read plenty of articles and talked to a few organisations telling me that the dogs are being starved to the point that it's not uncommon that bigger dogs eat the smaller ones. The cages are overcrowded with unhealthy dogs, samples of blood and excrement on the floor. There are also regular incidents of illegal killing stray dogs. Sounds terrible, doesn't it? :(

Fortunately, there are many ways you can help. There is this awesome organisation called Beacon Animal Rescue Centre that voluntarily helps dogs from countries like Thailand, Romania, Greece etc.

The most amazing thing you can do is to give one of these dogs a forever home. As you might know I have two cats myself and I was afraid that it will take ages before they will all get along but it's been only three weeks and they've started accepting each other. I find them sometimes sleeping in one bed but in different corners.

You can also foster, donate (each penny goes to animals), fund-raise, encourage other people to adopt, share awareness and that's only few of the ideas.

Having dog is an amazing experience. It's nearly as amazing as having cats. ;) All of a sudden you have so many friends. You have a good reason to get up early and walk in the park and chat with strangers. People smile at you, you just walk by and greet all other owners, sometimes to realise that a person who just passed you didn't even walk a dog. It's such a great opportunity to socialise more, to be more active and nothing beats the mornings when you are being woken up by a sloppy tongue and wagging tail.
