My ideal home? Now thats a hard one!
Why? Because well, I dont really kknow what I’d choose if there was no limit to where I could live!
I guess I’d like a house, with lots of bedrooms, a big playroom for the kids, a big garden for nitro, a fitted kitchen, a pool, a water fountain or a pond in the garden, a big living room open plan, a bathroom with a walk in shower.
Now I do have a walk in shower where I am living, Im not living in a house though, I am living in a bungalow, with two bedrooms, no pool, no fitted kitchen. My garden is small, and does not have a pond in it.
But I am happy where I am living now. I like it, my neighbours are nice. Thats what counts.
Material posessions dont really matter to me. As long as I have nice neighbours who care, who are there if I need them, that makes me happy.

We don’t get a lot of snow in Ireland. We had some this year though. In march, we had snow for five days!

It was great! Except, I live on a hill, so I was stuck indoors for the whole five days!

Never fear though! Me and Nitro had our own fun!

My memories of the snow storm were of going outside, and it being so silent, dead silent, it felt so eary, not a sound, in my back yard!

Well of course that was when the kids weren’t outside making snowmen and snow angels!

My other memory is of Nitro licking the snow and trying to eat it! He’s such a funny puppy! He had never seen snow as it was a few years since we’d had any substantial snowfall!

I made a few snowballs and threw them at him! He didn’t think that was cool, though.

I tried to make a video of us outside, too! That came out well too!

The other thing I remember about the snow we had was, we couldn’t get bread in our stores, they literally ran out of bread! Everyone bought it up! Hahaha 😀

I do love snow though! I love walking in it, and the crunch of it under my feet, such a nice sound!

Oh this is a good one! Nitro had lots of favourites!

He loves bones! Chicken, beef, he loves them all!

He likes smoky bones too! I try to give him one every now and then, to help his teeth! He chews them right down and really enjoys them!

He loves his kong, with peanut butter inside of it! I put the peanut butter in there, then I freeze the kong, and then he has to lick It out! He adores that!

He loves rice with chicken, which he gets when he’s ill! He wolfs it down!

He also loves these strips I get, they are bacon strips, they smell awful but to him, they taste great! He sits by where I keep them when I have them and waits for me to give him one!

He’s so cute! A cute lab he is hahahaha! 😀

I love buying him treats! Its one of my favourite things to do for him!

As a child all of my Halloween costumes were homemade. We never had a bought costume, not that I can remember. I pretty much always dressed up as a witch, years ago well I was born in the 80’s, but in the early 80’s all of the kids I knew either dressed up as a witch or a ghost, there wasn’t a lot of imagination put into costumes back then. We still had fun though. We were kinda poor, so mostly we wore black bags as dresses, you know like bags you’d use for rubbish? No one bought costumes, we did buy a mask though, but those were cheap, it wasn’t like today, where everyone wears make up and paints their faces. We had a witches hat, a black refuse sack, and maybe a mask, and we went trick or treating like that. Even when we would go trick or treating, we’d only get fruit, or monkey nuts, no sweets, or money or crisps like the kids get nowadays. I remember getting tons of apples, grapes, oranges, etc. And of course nuts, nowadays they don’t really give out fruit, or nuts. Due to allergies, nuts are pretty much a big fat no no nowadays. I also heard that the sweets they give out nowadays have to be wrapped, in case of poisoning, or some other mishap. Its gone pretty much over the top nowadays! But back to costumes. I prefer homemade ones. Do you? Was your Halloween costumes as a child homemade? Or did you have store bought ones?
