don't worry, be happy

                            It has just struck me that most of my friends unhappy at least half the time.
            That they seem like they don't want to talk to anyone, or try to make themselves happy again.

                                            Sometimes I think that they like being unhappy.

                       I do understand why they are sad, and I will try to help them, but why stay sad?
            I know if there is something really serious, then, of course, knock yourself out with sadness!
                                               But otherwise, don't worry, be happy!

                                                   Just like this clever man states here.

                                                          C'mon guys! Put a smile on your face!

                                                                             Alanna :-)

Splish Splash

I am a proud 'mother' of three awesome duckies.


They are one year old at the moment. 

They are really adorable.

Here, see for yourself.

You gotta just love them, right? 


I hope my three friends brightened your day!

you're a model of freedom

I would like to introduce you to me dear friend, her name?
Well, I like to call her the yonder, the deep blue, the revolving mystery,
the sea.

Although her and I are close friends now, It has not always been so.
Once, a very long time ago, we had not know each other. Her and I were never seen together. In fact, I would not even go near her. I was truly terrified of her.

All this commotion settled down, and all the people accepted that we were just not men't to be.
All the people that is, except two wonderful souls. 

Now, at the time, I was travelling with a small family circus, that happened to be staying in Britain's Quintessential Seaside Town for and extended time.

The two wonderful souls were also staying with the same circus.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, they took me to the beach to meet the sea. They introduced me to her slowly, and by the end of the day we were best friends.

Thank you Claire and Donna, for giving me a new experience, hobby and friend.

What is your experience with the yonder? Are you her friend or her enemy?

Have a nice day!


P.S   I almost forgot, another peachick has hatched! Shes with her mother at the moment enjoying freedom. Oh I do hope she survives! She did have a sibling, but we got there too late, as the poor critter was dead. :(

Hubby, my amazing dog

This is my beautiful dog, Hubby. Short for Hubble.
He got his unique name from  the Hubble telescope, and from this film.
Being a terrier, (Border / Lakeland) he loves to dig and chase after things. Fortunately, he only chases after mice and wild birds, leaving my other 100+ pets alone.

And I love him dearly. I mean, what is there not to love?

He teaches me to be contented.

He teaches me to have fun

He teaches me to be a punk.

He teaches me to listen

He teaches me to believe.

He teaches me calm

He teaches me to be creative

He teaches me to be happy!

He teaches me friendship

But most of all, he teaches me to love <3

Do you have any pets? What do your pets teach you? I would love to know!
There is even a special place for you to tell me below.

Have a nice day!

Alanna :)

A very long and incredibly deep tag from Olivia from Of HorseFeathers


                             Well, this could be interesting.....

         When was the last time you saw someone attractive?
                                                       Not that long ago....

                                               Where's your phone right now?

                                                               I don't have one.

                                      Do you have any plans for the weekend?

                                                   No, not at the moment....

                            Has someone ever made you a promise and broke it?

                                      Once or twice I think. I can't really remember.

                                                     Last movie/DVD watched?

  The Black Stallion. Awesome movie. I bought it a a 'record fair' in 'Britain's quintessential seaside town'.

                                               Does anything hurt on your body?
            My legs. And my arms a little. Horse riding is really lovely, but does have its drawbacks.

                                                                     How are you?

                               Pretty good.  A bit of dizzy and fever-ish, but starting to get better.

                                                      Are you excited for next year?

                                        I wasn't until a couple of days ago....Now I am!

                                                              Is your room clean?

                                               Not particularly, but cleaner then normal.

                                            How many pillows do you sleep with?


                                                         What are you doing?

                                       Surprisingly, I am answering your questions.

                                         I bet you miss somebody right now?

                                                                       A bit

                                  What are you planning on doing after this?

                  Not quite sure.....Getting ready for the start of year 9 in school tomorrow maybe?

                            Have you ever read an entire book in one day?

                                                        Haha, yes, many times!

                                                       Who did you push last?

                                    Um... I don't know, I don't really push people.

                         Who was the last person you had a deep conversation with?

                                                            I don't really know....

                                               Do you own any band t-shirts?
                             Actually, I don't own any. Haha...Never noticed that before.

                                         What does your hair look like right now?

                     Really, really messy. Usually its obnoxiously straight. But I slept on it while it was damp 
                                            last night, so now it equals a bird's nest.

                    Has anyone ever told you that you were their best friend?
                          Yes, but only in primary school. I have about four best friends. ;)

                                                         Did you get hurt today?

                                                  Yes. See aforementioned aching legs.

                                           When was the last time you felt upset?

                            Um... does being indignant count? Because if so, about 6 hours ago.

                                              What are you looking forward to?

                     Right now? Not much, seeing as my first day in year 9 starts tomorrow. 

                                        Do you currently want something?

                        Yes, I want a lot of things, but actually I am pretty content right now.

                                      What was the last thing you had to drink?

                                                                 Water, I think. 

                                 Who was the last person you said "i love you" to?

                                                          Ummm... my mum, perhaps?

                                                                      Where are you?

In a ridiculously squeaky Ikea chair that I sometimes have arguments with, on my outdated-but lovely computer, in my nice warm bedroom in my annoyingly big house. I am sort of happy with my surroundings at the moment.

                                                           Do you like to walk in the rain?

                                                                                    Oh yes!

                                                      Do you like looking up at the stars?

                                                                                Absolutely. :)

                                                      Do you think you are a nice person?

                               Yes, I think so. I'm flawed (who isn't?) but I'm generally pleasant. Unless 
                                                 I really, really want to annoy you. Mwahahaa ;)

                                                                 Do you like swimming?

           YES! But not in ponds. Or lakes. Gross. Oceans are lovely though! So are pools. *sigh* Swimming rocks.

                                                       Have you ever swam in the ocean?

Haha! Yes, I used to be scared stiff of the thought, but some very nice people showed me how wonderful it really is.

                                                                      Do you go to school?

                                                                            Yep, sadly... 

                                                            Do you want to go to college?

                                   Maybe... Book-writing, art and animal training, here I come!

                                                                What do you want to be?

                    Aforementioned Author-slash artist-slash animal trainer-slash photographer. 

                                                                  Do you want kids?

                    Um, no. I will have plenty of animals though. Who are, in a way, my kids.

                                                   Do you like going to the beach?

                                     Who is the last person you went shopping with?

                                                                 Um...My mum..I think....

                                                  Have you ever had any x-rays?'
                                                   Nooooo.... those are SO creepy...

                                                       Who do you hate right now?

                            Haha... actually, nobody, really... wow, that's a change...

                                           Who is the last person you yelled at?

I think my mom... But not really yelling, just kind of an annoyed tone of voice... she was annoyed right back, so it's all good.

                                                   Who was the last to cook you food?

                                                                          My mum.

                                             Are you in a complicated relationship?

                                                Nope, I'm single and free as a bird! :D

                                                   What did you do 2 nights ago?

                             I had dinner in a ravishingly amazing restaurant, called 'The Ship'.

                              Who was the last person you were on the phone with?

                                                                             My dad.

                                               Does a hug make you feel better?

                                              How long ago did you hug someone?

                                                            Um... I don't remember...

                                            Anything good happening tomorrow?

                                                                Ehh not particularly 

                              Have you kissed more than ten people this year?


                                                 Do you have unlimited texting?

                          Will you keep your last name when you get married?

           Yes, because Im not getting married! Wait....That doesn't really make any sense...Oh well..

                                         You have to get a piercing, what do you get?

                                                            Oh, do I have too? *weeps*

                  Have you ever felt like someone of the opposite gender truly cared about you?


                             Will you be in a relationship in the next couple months?


                    Did you have any unread text messages when you woke up today?
                                     Nope, don't have a mobile phone! Or any phone, in this case...

                                                Do you want to see somebody right now?

                                                                       Yeah, my friends.

                                                  Do you think two people can last forever?

                                                                              Sure, why not? 

                                    When was the last time you had a late night phone call?

                                                                       Like a month ago?

                                          If you could move somewhere else, would you?

                                                     Yes, Maine. Other then that I quite like it here.

                           Would you be able to date someone who doesn't make you laugh?
                                                                                No way!

                                                       Has anyone ever sang to you?

                                                                       Haha, yes <3 

                                   When was the last time you bit someone?

                                             Um... hehe....A few days ago.... *hides*

                      Do you think you can love someone without trusting them?

                                                                     No way. 

             Is there someone who you can spend every minute with and be happy?


                                                  Last person to make you smile?

                                       My very nice instructor when I was learning to ride. 

                          Have you ever wasted too much time on a certain boy?


                                                           How was last night?

                        Ehh... except for the sudden fire alarm going off, it was fine.

                          If you're being extremely quiet, what does it mean?
                     I'm either angry, shy, listening, or communicating telepathically. 
                                                                 No, seriously.

                              Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
                                           Sometimes... not often, though.

                                                   Do you have trust issues?

                                                      With people, yes. Sadly.

                                                 Was this a good weekend?

                                                            Sure, it was okay. 

                                  Were you happy when you woke up today?

                                                            Oddly enough, yes! 

                                                                       I tag:
                                        Anyone who actually read my answers. ;)
