Bernie Butts Update

My little guinea pig Bernie has really come out of his shell since we first got him. He’s gone through a lot with us already, we’ve moved into our first home and although Bernie HATED the car ride he loves his new home and has settled in really fast.


He loves to ‘popcorn’ jump allover the new rug and likes to play tag around the new flat.


He’s grown a lot and his hair is out of control! I give him weekly trims to keep it manageable otherwise it gets too long and with summer approaching I don’t want him to over heat.


His favourite things to eat are Spinach and Parsley. But he’ll eat anything green, especially if its leafy. As a treat once I week I give him fruit, his favourite so far is strawberries.


As you can tell by the title of the post his nickname is Bernie ‘Butts’ because he does a cute butt wiggle when he runs.


If there’s anything else you would like to know about little Bernie or questions or stories about owning a guinea pig in general please get in touch, I could talk about him all day!


Ask Me Anything Sunday!

I thought that I would start a weekly post with more information about myself. I feel like this will be a great way to share more about myself and to get to know others too. I’ll answer 10 questions each week and if anyone would like to ask anything leave them below and I’ll answer them next week 🙂 The following questions are taken from an online post.

Question 1

Are you artistic?
I am artistic, I like to paint and studied photography for four years. I’ve always loved being creative – that was the main reason for creating this blog.

Question 2

Have you had your first kiss?
I have, I’m 22 at the moment and my first kiss in my early teens.

Question 3

What is your life goal?
I don’t have a set plan but one thing I’m really working towards at the moment is buying my own home. I am renting a place right now and my boyfriend and I have been saving for a deposit for our own place for a few years now.

Question 4

Were you a cute kid?
I would like to think so – here’s a photo of me and my brother in the 90’s.

Question 5

What’s your worst fear?
I am very claustrophobic.

Question 6

Do you like to read?
I do, I love to read. Since I started working full I don’t have as much free time to read but I always try to find time on my days off.

Question 7

Are you a morning person?
I am not! I find it very hard to get out of bed when my alarms goes off. (who would want to leave this bed?)

Question 8

How do you feel about pet names?

I’m okay when a partner uses them, as long as there not too much of a cringe haha.

Question 9

Do you play any sports?
I don’t – the only physical actives I do is a lot of walking and occasionally I do yoga or swimming.

Question 10

Chocolate or sugar?

I would have to say sugar, because I have sugar in my coffee every day and I cook with it, I do also prefer savoury snacks. Like nachos, yum! (but I love chocolate chip cookies – hard choice)
