Nails: Unicorn

After yesterday’s unicorn cat toy – which is being utterly ignored by both cats, I wanted a unicorn!

These seem pretty close to the cats’ version and is very cute

The horns seem practical too – I can jab them into my thumb to remind me to be more tactful when a coworker asks if I got a pay rise… the correct answer is to find out what they got first and then make sympathetic and non-committal noises

Cat toy: Unicorn

Unicorns continue to be everywhere in popular culture – however attempts to make llamas a thing appear to still be desperately clinging on

Personally I’m not fussed either way about the unicorn trend, however my best friend is increasingly irritated at the amount of unicorns being linked to cheap & tacky things – given in mythology unicorns required someone to be ‘pure’ to catch them

So it was with far too much glee that I bought a unicorn shaped cat toy! It contains cat nip and silver vine so on paper should be ideal

However I’m sure that the poor unicorn will be firmly ignored by both cats – although as they are neutered I’d imagine the unicorn should find them pure enough to want to be friends… which only sounds massively creepy now I type it out!

Food: Birch Water

Birch Water is literally the bottle sap of a birch tree and what was a traditional drink in a few European countries is now billed as a superfood – largely due to the high levels of Manganese that it contains

Personally I only bought it due to the heavy discounting and because there were no fun smoothies on offer – my usual treat for the rare occasions that I decide walking a mile each way and braving the supermarket on a lunch break is unavoidable

Birch water may have funky levels of a mineral that I’d never heard of before, however it tastes like sugary water and wasn’t terribly fun

Nails: Hearts

This week has been a bit weird and I’m still feeling out of sorts, so the usual schedule has gone a little AWOL however there is still time for wanting nice nails – as oppose to blood-stained talons…

Although what if you could get talons and hearts combined?

Personally I’d say those nails would strike fear into the hearts of my enemies, however feel free to disagree…

Hepaticas

Hepaticas are small pretty little alpine plants that flower around this time of year

My parents kindly, and randomly, bought me some of the nobilis variety last year and they flowered very well this year – so well in fact that my parents bought me a few more by mail order from a specialist nursery

This is how they arrived:

It certainly looks special but not in a good way… I planted them up immediately and am now hoping they survive, however they look very miserable and traumatised

The newspaper they are packed in is the Daily Mail, which seems an odd choice given the cost of the plants and who I would expect to be the general target audience of expensive alpine plants. Or maybe I’m distracting myself with trivial things to block out how flat out iffy Wednesday was

Random Dragon

Buying random fun seeming things does happen in my household, although they don’t tend to be *this* random normally

At least I didn’t buy a pink gnome…

Food: Gu Fusions

When anxiety strikes I tend to try to find fun food, sometimes this means buying random things that sound fun and then finding they really are not fun

Gu Fusions fall firmly in this category; strawberry mousse with fresh strawberry compote should taste nicer and preferably not flipping contain beef gelatine

I should have stuck with eating chocolate instead

Random Star Wars Thing

It’s been an odd couple of weeks and I’m feeling slightly off-centred and randomly anxious

However buying cereal did lead to winning a BB8 “breakfast unit” so that was a fun surprise

Although I’m not entirely sure when he will be used…

Food: Fake peanut butter cups

I like Reeses peanut butter cups, despite having never tried peanut butter in any other context and having no real inclination to do so; however as Reeses are not exactly healthy or cheap they are a rare treat

Wandering in the foreign food section of my local supermarket I found the Chocolate Buddy knockoff version – they are slightly cheaper than Reeses and I figured they couldn’t be awful

I was wrong, they are nasty in both taste and texture, like wash it out with mouthwash nasty

Now I really don’t want to try peanut butter

Yoga – nice free videos

I like the moving parts of yoga, the spiritual stuff I struggle with – I can’t even bring myself to “om” in front of my cat

When my last yoga teacher was fired from my gym (don’t ask) I took their advice and signed up to YogaGlo – which is fine and has loads of teachers some of whom are fab

However in the second half of last year I found my enthusiasm for yoga flagging, not great when paying a subscription fee (plus currency conversation costs) so when I was pointed in the direction of free yoga videos on YouTube with a fun teacher I was intrigued

Yoga With Adriene is certainly fun, a little more basic then I’m used to however I’m at least a bit more motivated again so that can’t be bad and I’ll probably go back to Glo when the weather stops being permanently grey and rain-filled

If you’ve never tried yoga then Adriene did a pretty beginner friendly set of classes in January, including a fun floor one
