An over thinkers guide to life, Puggles, family and so much more

Overthinking is a nightmare. Due to a back operation I have too much time on my hands and too much time to think. This is how I deal with it and survive

Daily update – well maybe not daily recently



It’s a bit of a bribe as I have neglected you. So I have posted a cute picture of Bella our beautiful puppy to win you round. I have had a busy few weeks. I have been busy with the pups and trying to get my candle business up and running. I have also been useless with my diet. I have slightly lost weight but not through dieting but though being back at work and busy.

I have sold lots of candles but mainly to people who I know. Through work and Facebook. I made loads of candles on Saturday and spent all day sorting them out and packaging them up. I had a bright idea to do a car boot sale. We made a profit after paying for the stall but it was about £4.00. For 4 hours work so approximately 50 pence an hour. We also got next to the most annoying person in the world. He never shut up all the time. We were ready to murder someone by the end of it. So that’s it for car boot sales. I have now signed up for some craft sales and hope we will do better. I did manage to sell a heart candle though and had plenty of positive comments.

My diet has been terrible I haven’t tried one bit. I have been back to the specialist today and he has said an operation won’t help me. He has referred me to pain management and physio. I have decided I need to get fit by walking the dogs and trying to build my back up again. I think that’s the only way i can be pain free. I do have carpal tunnel syndrome in my hands he offered to operate but I decided to bear with it as I won’t be able to use my hands for 2 weeks and I can’t spare the time off work.

I feel good that I don’t need an op. Money is tight though at the moment and we have nearly two weeks till my boyfriend gets paid. My daughter has been back with us for a month now and her dad won’t pay me anything. He has even gone on holiday for a week. It gets me furious as she still adored him and can’t see no wrong. We are trying to do what we can but it’s going to be a struggle, but isn’t every month. I hope one day my daughter realises what a dick he is.

I promise I am going to be a better blogger !!!!! See you tomorrow xxxx

This is us

Aren’t these the most adorable puppies ever

what do you think of our puppies? They are 4 and a half weeks old and very entertaining. They are great fun and enjoying life at the moment. Lily has really had enough of feeding them. They have teeth now and sharp claws. The pain must be excruciating. So I don’t blame her. She seems to be more like the old Lily now and not the pregnant Lily or the miserable mother Lily.

It’s been hard work. Puppies are fun but hard work. We were not prepared for how hard it would be. Anyone considering it should think hard. I wouldn’t change it except would have loved for Lily to be a good mum and take to her puppies, but she was scared and she really did her best. I think it will get easier now they are getting older and I think the fun will start now.

I will post some more videos soon and photos

Dogs are the best

Puppy update


I haven’t really updated you lately regarding the puppies. I think we have been too damned tired. We still are but there is a light at the end of rhe tunnel. My boyfriend has made a welping box for Lily and the puppies. You can see it on the picture above.

The puppies have come on leaps and bounds. They have all opened their eyes and are now walking. There is a video above showing smokey walking. I bet by weekend they will be running around. We are hoping to leave Lily in with them tonight. We have set up an app on the iPad called Arnold. It’s amazing you can use your iPad as a camera and another phone you can use as a receiver. It’s all done through your google account. It doesn’t matter if your phone is Apple or android. You can use both. We have been tuning in when we have been out of the house. The only problem is only one person at a time can watch the puppies. So we keep logging each other out which is frustrating when I am logged out ha ha. There will be lots of updates as the puppies develop and grow up. They are nearly 3 weeks old and we will keep them until they are between 10-12 weeks old. So we have plenty of memories to make and we can’t wait. There are exciting times ahead. I will check in again with you soon

I still need help. Please.

My dieting will amuse you. With my useless attempts and how if someone dangles a bar of chocolate in front of me I will snap at it. I also have the ability to make bars of chocolate jump off the supermarket shelves into my trolly. Like today a bar of marvellous creations fell in my trolley and I am currently through half of it. I do not think the battle to be thin will be an easy one but I hope I will get there one day.

Daily diary-I feel the world is out to get me or am I just tired ?


Today I feel the world is out to get me. I am being hyper sensitive due to tiredness or are people just being arseholes today ? I think it’s the later.  I asked my boss a question today about £27 a client owed us and could I transfer it over to another matter we had for them.  He said “and why are you asking”.  I said “cause you are my boss” he said “you have just wasted £27 of my time.  I walked out of his room and muttered arsehole under my breath.

This afternoon my parents took me for my mri scan.  I needed another one as my right side is worse after my operation. My mum was on one when I got in the car,started discussing the puppies and saying I really couldn’t afford to keep one.  It upset me as I feel that I have raised these puppies and I won’t be having them again so would love something that is part of both lily and Bailey. They are both characters and a puppies of theirs is bound to be amazing,

I cant believe it’s been a week since they were born. Thus time last week lily had rejected them.  Now she is the best mum ever.  The puppies have grown so much and have nearly doubled their birth weight,  which is how they should be.  I am so proud of what we have achieved.  It’s been hard going and we are sleep deprived.

My son had a girl to the house for the afternoon. I wa allowed to talk to her and even give her a lift home, which is a massive achievement as in the past I couldn’t even say hello.  I made a nice leak and potato bake for tea.  He wanted super noodles for him and his “friend”.  I don’t know what you call them these days as after a few dates you arent automatically a girlfriend like you used to be.  You have to be asked and usually that’s a few months down the line.  I think they are “ talking”. Anyway I am sure she would have preferred by bake buy my son could live off super noodles,

i am off to check on the puppies.

Good night xxx

The best thing about dogs

Daily diary – it’s more tiring than having a new born baby



We are shattered.  It’s been feeds every 3 hours.  It’s more tiring than raising a new born baby.  The only difference is we have 3  to look after.  We have had a major break through.  We held lily and she fed her babies.  During the course of the night and day she became more relaxed.  We muzzled her and we let he sniff the babies and then tonight we took the muzzle off.  We were very close by in case she tried to bite then  but her mothering instinct set in and she licked them and cleaned there bottoms.  It was amazing and I hope that she now looks after them.  I always new she would be a good mum.  So fingers crossed.

The shopping fairies have been today.  We did an online order and we have full fridge and cupboards.  I love it.  I have mentioned before I think I have full cupboard syndrome.  I hate it when the food is eaten,  The only difference is I have bought a load of fruit as I need to loose weight as I feel fat.  Being off work and eating shit has Made me put on a few pounds.  I have weight issues as when I was 13 I had anorexia.  So I am going to try and eat fruit and not eat chocolate and crisps.  It’s very difficult as my boyfriend and son are gannets and eat  nothing healthy.  I have just got the cherries out and my boyfriend reached for the chocolate.   Very supportive.  Not.  I will let you know how I go on.

I haven’t seen my son all night.  There has been a big fight tonight the fight of the century.  Two you tubers.  I have been told.  I must be getting too old as I hadn’t a clue.  My 73 year old Dad even knew.  My daughter loved the festival and managed to get back in one piece thank goodness.

I am going now as I am shattered and we have an hour and a half to thr next feed.  I feel so relieved that lily is finally being a mother.

Ps,  I am going to keep a puppy.  My boyfriend says no but we are keeping one.  Watch this space.

Daily diary – she has only gone and bloody done it



Yesterday  was a busy day. It was GCSE results day. My daughter slept the night before which was challenging at times. I think the nerves had set in and she has worked very hard and was it all for nothing?

I had been up twice in the night feeding the puppies. They have been doing ok. They are very hungry and I think that is a good sign.

Anyway we got out of the house at about 9 and arrived at school shortly after. There was a nervous buzz in the air when we arrived. Luckily she had done better than either of us could have expected. She got 5 GCSE passes and that includes English and Maths. She needed these results to get on her college course. So we were all very proud of her. She is doing health and social and she wants to become a nurse. So she can progress to the next step of college. This will make her grow up as college is so different to school.

We carried on feeds throughout the day with the puppies  and did our last one at 11.45. Every 3 hours is hard going. My son did the 3.30 am one so I am doing another at 5.45. I remember how it felt to get up with my children when they were babies. We will get there. The puppies have put on weight since our last weigh in. Doing another feed in 10 mins. Lily hasn’t calmed down much. we have let her stand at the baby gate, but she is still being very silly. Personally I don’t think she will ever be able to feed and be a proper mother to her. Which is a real shame.

Right I am off as it’s feeding time st the zoo soon xxxxx
