playing vets

Back from the dead - Keith

My first experience of having to bury a hamster has scared me for life. My housemate Amber came home to find that poor Keith (a girl hamster) wasn’t moving. We poked and prodded her and there was no movement...Then came the hard part. The funeral.
We dug a hole in the back garden and while amber picked flowers I took poor Keith out of her bed and tried to wrap her up. It was completely heartbreaking. It was just like she was sleeping. Through teary eyes I decided I would turn her over and look at her little face.....then she came back to life.

She stretched out and wiggled about, but her little eyes wouldn’t open and it was scary to watch her move like that. It was time to play vets. I googled hamster hibernation and called the vets who told me for a vet to see her it would be £87. WHAT!!!! Luckily Amber then screamed that Keith’s eyes were open. We kept her wrapped up to keep her warm and tried to give her food and water. Eventually she started walking (a little wobbly but walking none the less!).

Now she is much more alert and walking about normally again in her clean cage. So I am physically scared for life as I almost buried an alive hamster, an in the future when I have to do this for my kids I will have to refuse and get somebody else to do it for me!

When I was trying to google what was wrong I got a lot of random answers that didn’t really help so hopefully this will: she was curled in a ball just like she was asleep. I wouldn’t say she was limp because when I moved her she stayed in her little guess is she had gotten cold and started to hibernate. I can safely say Amber will be treating Keith like a princess after this scare and I will be doing the same with Mr. Muffins (also a girl hamster).
Muffins was so worried about Keith - Lol JK she was escaping her own cage at the time

Internet Killed Television

Yesterday was so amazing!!! We The Kings were awesome Simple plan were really good as well. I didnt really know what to expect from Simple Plan because I have never really been  fan but they were really good and had awesome stage presence.

After the show we lined up with everyone outside hoping to see our favourite Youtubers Charles and Alli Trippy (CTFxC/ Internet Killed Television). Both me and the boyfriend got pictures with them which was super cool and totally worth standing out in the cold for. My only problem with the night was that my curled hair had gone flat by the end and it just looked like a bush. And I left my lipstick at the hotel so once it faded a lot I had to rub the rest off (boo).

Now I'm back in Derby and it is time to start work straight away!! I cant wait to get it all done! Be patient with me and I'll be back to my blogging self soon

Skipping Work for CTFxC!!!

Ahhhh! Once again it has appeared that I have abandoned my blogging duties. But as my second year at university comes to an end I have found myself buried under a mountain of work, and it's a pretty big mountain. Every time I have wanted to write a blog post I have had to tell myself "If you have time to write a blog, then you have time to do your work" and that is what I have been doing. Luckily deadlines are now very close (this could be a bad thing) and soon I will have no more work for the summer yaaaaay (except the summer job that I still have to look for).

Tomorrow I am having a day off of uni work and am of to Manchester with my boyfriend to see the band We The Kings. I can barely contain my excitement to go and see this amazing band and hopefully get to meet two of my favourite 'YouTubers.' So I will be rising and making an attempt of shining early in the morning to get ready and go! I think I will be 'vlogging' my day so hopefully I will be posting a new Youtube video when I get home. I should also get two new outfit posts out of this :) Though they may come a while later as I still have work to finish and a shorthand exam to revise for!! eeekk!

Thank you for being patient and not unsubscribing while I have been slowly digging my way out of my work filled mountain.
