Day trip to Brighton

Brighton Beach

Brighton Beach

Rach and I went for a quick day trip to Brighton on a Saturday. Brighton is on the coast and has a pebble beach. Yes that’s right they don’t have sand, just lovely round pebbles. Brighton is about an hour train ride out of London and is sort of a hip version of Bateman’s Bay but on a bigger scale.

In the centre of Brighton, they had lots of little streets closed off with all sorts of different shops and some streets with a trash and treasure going on (mainly trash from what we saw :) ) Walking around, there were a fair few fashion shops, Rach even picked up a new set of shoes for work and I found a new bag for work.

Venice Carnivale

Grand Canal
Grand Canal

So we headed to Venice for our second time, but this time with Nat and Mark who had never been before. I wasn’t sure how Rach and I would go as Venice is a small place and there aren’t they many huge landmarks or big sights to see. The first time we came to Venice we were blown away by how amazing it looked taking a Vaporetto (water bus) all the way down the Grand Canal through the centre of Venice. They say it a lot about other places but there truly is no other place like Venice.

Meet our new house mate

Smudge

Smudge

This our new house mate smudge. He is named smudge because when he first moved in he would always step in his own poo after doing the business and would smudge it all over his leg. He is about 14 weeks old. When he first arrived he was tiny and fragile but since then he has grown a bit and has started to hone his hunting skills. He has these cute little blue eyes and this tiny round circle pattern on his head. He is so playful and will pounce on anything that moves.

Hanging on

The little guy has already caught his first mouse, which was one of the reasons we got him.

He is very friendly and loves to be in whatever room people are in to either play around in the room or lie down on you. He loves coming into our room when we get home and loves to play underneath our bed. I think he loves all the different things to play with and he loves shoes for some reason.
