Ivy Small Paws

So I’ve done it, I’ve made a Instagram account for Ivy. It’s mostly for me, I enjoy scrolling through her photos and just looking at her and missing her haha. It also helps me cut down the cats that I’m following on my Instagram and follow them on her Instagram instead.

She’s definitely warmed up to us a lot more. She sleeps with us at the end of the bed, occasionally gives us little licks in the morning when it’s close her breakfast and gives us a little nose kiss every so often =).

Our current plan is to do a little bit of clicker training with her teach her to sit, follow the pencil end (which she occasionally does), get off items, get on items, get in her carrier, leash train her and maybe teach her to high five. Right now she follows the pencil, but she gets pretty lazy about it sometimes haha.

She’s a smart little kitty, she’s worked out how to open the built in wardrobe in her room (which we’ve now blocked) and she’s currently trying to work out how to open the kitchen cabinets.

We bought a little shark cave for her which she looks adorable in.

In other non Ivy news, we recently had a pregnacy scare. We did the whole pregnacy tests, blood tests and ultrasound, no I was not pregnant but we found out that I may have POCs, we see the fertility doctor next week. The pregnancy scare really helped us work through some of Brandon’s worries about kids and our relationship is much stronger for it.
So no littlies running around yet, but who knows in the near future =).

See you next time,
Helen ♥

Stupid thing of the week; there’s this nail polish remover that I have that gives you chemical burns. I keep telling myself to throw it out cause chemical burns is a bad thing, though I still haven’t done it yet, and gave myself chemical burns over the weekend. At this rate I’ll probably end up building a resistance against it haha.

On to other news, Sindy & Eddie had their engagement party last weekend. It was awesome, there were ponies, a slushy machine and a fairy floss machine! They also had photos from the proposal in Fiji tied to helium balloons =).
Photo below is of our masterful creations on the fairy floss machine.

There’s been so many events I haven’t had a chance to blog about!! But I’ll try my best once I get all my photos and studying in order!

Can’t wait for the next few weekends. Celebrating Phillip’s 18th, then a bbq birthday for Billy, Moonie and Smitty.
Possibly Joseph’s and then a bbbq at Nathan’s to meet his girlfriend =).

Climbing, it’s been great! We’re mainly bouldering at ECAT now. I’m slowly improving, up to V3’s and V4’s now. The boys are improving faster than me, and Brandon’s just started climbing a bit after getting the all clear. Can’t wait for our Asia trip next year. We’re going to boulder in Hong Kong! So excited!!!

Writing this as I walk the streets of Sydney. I should probably stop =P.
