Had a lovely weekend, went to Leeds to the newly opened Kitty Cafe. It was so cool! There`s rope bridges, giant scratching posts, shelves a few feet from the ceiling going all the way along the wall so the cats/kittens can get away if they want too. Lovely looking cat beds, and really comfortable brightly coloured chairs to sit in. Your encouraged to wander around and stroke the cats (no picking up though). They also supply string so you can play with the cats. The cats must be in heaven! I think they will be pretty disappointed when they get adopted lol. A decent bit of cake was had too! If you are a cat lover you will love it!.
When in Leeds it would be rude not to go for a curry! Lovely meal had at my favourite curry place.
In the evening i went to see The Little Mermaid Ballet by The Northern Ballet at Leeds Grand. Wow. Just wow. It was brilliant. Just stunningly beautiful. The girl who played the Little Mermaid was just amazing! You could tell she was suppose to be `under the sea` even though there was no real water lol, and obviously they don`
t speak. Such brilliant acting. Watching the girls on there tip toes! Blimey!. I`ve only ever seen one ballet before and that was The Nutcracker years ago. I highly recommend it!
I missed the Strictly final, but have since caught up with it. I am a tad disappointed at the result, i have been routing for Debbie or Gemma for weeks, but hey ho!
Christmas will soon be upon us!
Had a fab trip out to the National Centre for Birds of Prey located in Dunscombe Park, Helmsley. It was a lovely scenic drive over, freezing cold, i think the temperature was around -1!. On the plus side there was hardly anyone there, so we did`n
t have to wrestle to see the birds. There were so many different kinds to see, and plenty of owls which i adore. We watched a couple of flying demonstrations where they flew a Great Grey Owl (see pic), Brown Wood Owl, a Caracara and a couple of others who`s names escape me!
Then back to the gorgeous bed and breakfast with the most gigantic bed i have ever seen, a couple of hours were spent warming up 😉 The bedroom had one of those free standing baths! Plus a huge shower that could fit a lot of people in! I made use of the bath and took some photos which will be in my AdultWork gallery when i have had a sort through.
We went back to the Birds of Prey Centre for the evening owl event. A tour and info about the owls were given, we watched them flying the owls both inside and out and they even gave us a meal too!
Back to the posh bed and breakfast to warm up……again! 😉 All that fresh air wore us out, i slept well in the gigantic comfortable bed! Morning shenanigans may have occurred 😉 then a hearty full English Breakfast. We had a stroll around Helmsley, its got lots of lovely little shops, not high street ones, so you can find different kinds of gifts. My gentleman James treated me to a lovely bangle. A leisurely drive home was had, it was snowing lightly when we got closer to Huddersfield but not settling. Another great over night had!

I have a few things planned for December so will be off as follows…
Saturday 9th/ Sunday 10th December OFF
Saturday 16th/Sunday 17th December OFF
Finishing for Christmas break Saturday 23rd December at 4.30, returning to work Thursday 28th December from 9am.
Monday 1st January 2018 OFF
Back to normal working hours Tuesday 2nd January, available from 9am. Have attatched a few more seal pics from Donna Nook (please read previous blog!).
Been a busy bee of late! It seems its that time of year when newbies treat themselves to some fun! And why not!
I was asked to accompany a gentleman of mine James to visit Donna Nook Grey Seal Colony in Lincolnshire. The seals come every year to give birth, mate again, then waddle off back to sea, before returning the same time next year. For wildlife lovers its a sight to behold! There`s literally just a little wooden fence separating you from the seals, so you get so close to them! When we went there was around 700 bulls (males), 1590 cows (females) and 1690 odd pups! Amazing to see! I got some lovely pictures. A lovely meal and overnight followed before a leisurely drive home the next morning, singing along to Abba and Elton John!
Recently i also went to see Tango Moderno at the Alhambra in Bradford. It was suppose to be with ex Strictly stars Vincent and Flavia, although unfortunately on the night we went Vincent had hurt his back so couldn`t perform. That was really disappointing. A good show nonetheless! A delicious meal at Akbars softened the blow! I do love a curry! Speaking of Strictly….i have been enjoying the series. Debbie is just brilliant! I really enjoy watching Gemma and Mollie to. I would like to see an all girl final! Alexandra is a great dancer but does not come across very genuine.
Weight loss!….I have lost rather a lot of weight since July, two and a half stone to be precise and gone down three dress sizes so far. Don`
t worry for those of you who like big girls, i still have a big breasts, belly and butt! I`m getting ready for my holiday abroad next year so i want to look good! I`m feeling sexier than ever! I have attached a recent pic of me to this blog. I will get some new photos done when i get to a size 16 next year. How have i done it i hear you ask?! Actually one of my customers recommended a Hypnotherapist he used to stop himself smoking and eating chocolate, so i got the details and booked myself in. It worked straight away and i felt like a different person when i came out the session an hour later! I had three sessions in total, best money i ever spent!.
Till next time,
