Looking beyond the imperfections…

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect, it means that you have learnt to look beyond the imperfections”. I saw this quote earlier this week, scribbled on a note pad in a shop. And I liked it. I’m not sure who originally said it, and therefore I can’t really credit them – but whoever […]

Rescued. Re-homed. Retrained?

So, my brother, Sam, is the media savvy one of our family. He is a twitter pro, blogging celebrity and TV show guest. His blog has gone from strength to strength in the last 12 months, and so I felt rather privileged when he asked me to write a feature for him on whether rescue […]

A Weekend of Beating Until Light and Fluffy

As the inspiration behind this blog, […]
