21st

Hi everyone! Sorry to have to try picking your brains but I decided to come and ask you a question.
For the last few weeks, Mum and Dad have been asking what I would like for my birthday. I’ve given them a few hints, such as a charm bracelet or a pearl necklace (these are both things I’ve wanted for years but never asked for until now) but they’ve decided they don’t like my suggestions. I half-jokingly asked for tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by myself and they seemed to consider this on the condition I got myself to London and found myself somewhere to stay, but, since she’s continued to ask me for ideas, I don’t think they want to get me the tickets. 
So my question to you lovely friends is – what should I ask for? I don’t know their price range but nothing too expensive – we tend to go for about £100 maximum, sometimes more if there’s something we desperately want or need. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Comment below, tweet me, or email katiekinnes@msn.com!

Missing the Pets

Anyone who knows me, or even claims to know me, will be aware of the fact that the main reason I return to Lisburn, regardless of how much I want to escape my family, is to see the animals.

 

For my 7th birthday,  we got Baron – a golden cocker spaniel puppy. He was energetic, cheeky, and had a mind of his own. Now, aged 14 (or 98 in dog years), Baron constantly sleeps and plods around after us. In fact, he’s currently fast asleep on my feet. He’s the main reason I come home. Who wouldn’t love this little face?

Back in January, Rachel was adopted by a stray cat. For a week, the then-christened Trevor, was allowed in and out of the house, fed, and looked after by my sister who claims to not like cats. Of course, she tried her best to find out if anyone owned this kitten. Finally, she took ‘Trevor’ to the vet and discovered that he was actually a she and that she was roughly 5 months old. Of course, Rachel insisted on keeping this kitten and Trevor became Maisie – the proud and anti social cat we’ve all grown to love. Actually, her birthday is some time this month!

Being an animal person, I do find it difficult when in the flat in Glasgow, as our contract clearly states no pets. The highlight of my visits home isn’t the free food or the heating, it’s getting to play with these two again!
