Life With A Cat - Four Years On!

This month marks four years since we bought our little tuxedo cat, Harley, home. In some ways, it feels like just yesterday he arrived in our lives and turned everything around. But in other ways, it feels like he's been a part of our family for so much longer. We certainly couldn't picture life without him now, though, that's for sure! I thought I'd share a few photos of a baby Harley - looking back at these photos makes me feel such strong waves of nostalgia. I do miss the kitten phase. He was a whirlwind of energy; tearing around like a thing possessed. And then he'd crash, and fall asleep cradled in my arms, just like a human baby. Now I'm lucky if he lets me pick him up for more than two minutes! He's also now the same age as my husband, or thereabouts, in cat years!

Everybody Wants To Be A Cat!

If you don't already know, I love cats. I have a tuxedo cat called Harley (Quinn or Davidson, depending on whether you ask my husband or me). He's four years old, which is unbelievable to be honest, and we've had him four years since last weekend. 

The Aristocats is one of my all-time favourite Disney films. I've watched it countless times, and know all the lyrics to all the songs. I also have the Marie, Toulouse and Berlioz Tsum Tsums. I think Marie is my favourite, because she has killer attitude, but I also adore Duchess. She's so regal and such a loving mum.

Anyway. The other day, I had the well-known song "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" stuck in my head. For no apparent reason. And it gave me an idea for a blog post. Because, given half the chance, I'd love to be a cat. So here are five reasons why I want to be a cat.

Haul Post!

I'm pretty sure I've got enough photos/content for at least another four haul posts. And that's assuming I don't buy anything else between now and the next few weeks. Which, let's be honest, isn't going to happen. We all know I'm a shopaholic. And I'm not ashamed to admit it.

I can tell you that today's haul post dates back to before Christmas 2018. Most of the hauls in the following photo come from our Christmas shopping trip to Cardiff. Just so you know I'm not so much of a shopaholic that I've accumulated all this stuff in the last few weeks/months.

Without further ado, here's a little look at what I've been buying recently (as recently as Christmas of 2018, anyway!)

February Book Haul!

It's time for another book haul, ladies and gentlemen (do any gentlemen read my blog? Let me know if you're a male reader. I'm genuinely curious!)

I tried to kid myself that February would be the month I finally stopped buying books (although I still planned to post a monthly book haul, as I have pre-orders arriving every month at the moment). But that was just a monumental lie, wasn't it?

So, here it is. A look at what books I bought in February. And who knows, maybe March is the month I finally get my shit together and stop buying books. A girl can dream, eh?

Lush Mother's Day/Easter Haul!

Although I'm trying, albeit not very hard, to avoid Lush like the plague because, guys, my bathroom resembles a Lush store, I can't resist their collections for special occasions. Not gonna lie, though, I'm a bit disappointed with their Mother's Day and Easter collection this year. No new shower gels/creams, no really exciting bath bombs. I was pleased to see a handful of new shower bombs though!

March TBR!

No reading wrap-up for you this time, either. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel that is my stack of magazines/bookazines. In fact, by the time this post goes live I anticipate I'll have totally cleared my leaning tower of mags and finally be moving on to books. So here's the books I'm hoping to read this month.

I'm cautiously optimistic that I can get through all 80 of this collection and finally remove the set from the living room library and put it up in the bedroom library, where it belongs. They are only very short reads, so fingers crossed. Assuming I can make it through this lot, I also want to read these short stories too...

March Goals!

Pretty chuffed that I found a free stock image on Pexels with the date on it that this post is going live. It's the little things in life, eh? I'm not sure I want to talk about February's goals. Suffice it to say, February was a trial month too. And I've decided that 2019 actually starts in March... I'm also rethinking my goals this month. In the past, I've set myself a maximum of five goals a month. But I think that I'm aiming too high. As evidenced by the past two months of failure. So from now on, I'm going to be setting myself a maximum of three goals a month. And I'm scrapping my idea of having one goal set by you guys, my readers. Because that didn't really take off. So, without further ado, here are the three goals I'm setting myself for March!
