More photos from a sunny Sefton Park.

Good evening!
Today I visited the girl who I met a few weeks ago. We had some tea/coffee and biscuits, chatted about dogs and other things and discussed tomorrow when I’ll be taking care of one of her super cute dogs while they’re away. It was so nice of her to give me a car ride downtown later on so that I wouldn’t have to take the bus! I always enjoy chatting with her and spending time with her and her dogs and I’m super excited about having her dog Roxio over at our place. ♡
I’ve possibly got a couple more pet sitting bookings coming up, which I’m excited about. I’m meeting one of the clients next week, it’ll be interesting!

While downtown, there was much shopping which had to be done.
Basically, we needed a lot of new items for the kitchen, such as cutting boards and a bread basket. Since J went to work today I decided to try to buy as many of the items as possible so that he wouldn’t have to worry about getting all of that shopping done during the weekend when (in my opinion) he should be resting. ♡
I’m quite pleased with everything that I bought today – now we just need to find a nice looking dish rack and then we’ve got most of the new stuff for the kitchen covered.

As promised, here are some more photos from our walk in the park yesterday!

Squirrels in Sefton Park.

Good evening from the U.K.!
J and I made American blueberry pancakes tonight, they were delicious. We ate them while watching ‘Modern Family’ on SKY and it was really nice to de-stress in front of the TV while being in eachother’s company.

I’ve been feeling restless most of the day and J was feeling a tiny bit better from his flu in the afternoon, so we decided to get some fresh air. This time I took my 70-200 mm f/2,8 lens with me. J was amazing in finding interesting things to take photos of, and even helping me bribe squirrels to get really close to us! ♡

At one point he was trying to herd some squirrels to get closer as I was hiding with my camera behind some bushes. For next time, we’ll be taking peanuts with us to give to the cute and fluffly little things!

I really want to get a better 70-200 lens, preferably with some image stabilisation on it because the lens is super heavy and it’s very difficult to keep my hands from shaking while trying to focus on a small animal such as a squirrel.

For tomorrow’s blog entry I have some photos of birds to show from our walk in the park.

But for now, it’s time for a shower before bed, and maybe a bit of shopping on Etsy/eBay – I’m ordering some items that will allow me to be creative in the shape of fake nail sets. I’ll talk more about this when I’m not so sleepy. Nighty night!

A sunny day in Sefton Park.

Yesterday we had a beautiful, sunny day
here in Liverpool and I decided to take advantage of the warmth. In fact, it was such nice weather that I could actually wear my tights and shorts instead of my jeans! I loved it.
There were many people out in the park, and lots of cute dogs. I saw many (gray) squirrels, but sadly I didn’t take my 70-200 mm lens with me, and thus I couldn’t get any close-up shots of them. One of the squirrels was super curious and was waiting for me to feed it, so I’m thinking that I’ll bribe them with tasty treats next time I go to the park again.

Today I was reached by the news that at 05:28 in the morning, local Swedish time, my best friend Mariam and and her husband Wiggo became parents to my godson Emric! ♡ I’ve seen some photos of him and he’s absolutely adorable. ♡ I’ve bought sooo many clothes for him that I’m shipping to their home on Gotland.

I’ve spent most of today cleaning in the kitchen and taking care of J, as he’s having the flu. Poor guy. ♡
