2020, The World of the Pandemic…Has this Affected You?

2020, The World of the Pandemic…Has this Affected You?

Is it just me or is everyone really, really over this Covid – 19 pandemic situation kinda thing by now? However it is a scary time for everyone, but living with a chronic illness, loosing a loved one during this time and restrictions on attendees are very stressful, not being able to travel to see loved ones if you’re worried, having a baby even and a mental health condition causing you distress is an extra thing we have to deal with over the top of it all.

I guess majority of us consider our homes a safe haven and are at home a lot but now that were restricted to home, do you feel that you’re trapped or in prison? For me, I didn’t. I didn’t feel like I was in lockdown oddly. I enjoyed the no traffic if I had to go to the pharmacy but this isn’t a good thing. Everyone had no choice but to stay home this year during lockdowns and may actually now be more understanding of what it feels like when our health prevents us from doing anything.

As some of of us are housebound we get lonely unless you’re reading this right now (thank you!) or are doing some I encourage you enjoy such as gardening, exploring a new talent via youtube (hence how I learnt how to build websites and I am currently working on our forum) or bullet journal! However once again… now that healthy people have experienced this, it can help us explain more easily what it has been like for us forever. That this is what our normal is. This is a positive aspect that’s come out of this shitty pandemic.

May every soul that was that lost their lives to covid around the word, Gold Bless and I hope youre with your loved ones in Heaven/Paradise or anywhere your religion is is there.

To the people who caught the virus and has recovered, We wish you a speedy recovery and are happy for you.

Lots of Love

My Leo … My Best friend …

My Leo … My Best friend …

I have always wanted a Bull Terrier for so long but I wanted to adopt one but they’re usually snapped up pretty quickly for some reason when they’re in the pound but on one fateful day, I saw an ad in Western Sydney, 2 hours north of where I live, that two bull terrier pups were up for adoption but I had to be quick because they were scheduled to be euthanised. I told my husband this and we had just moved into our new house and started to prep for a dog but just not so soon but I begged him please can we go and so we set off.

When we got there, I seen this gangly, long legged looking puppy trying to be matched with this massive viscous German Shepherd and i BEGGED the lady to stop them from pairing them because it was horrible to watch, so they took the pup back to its filthy cage filled with newspaper, shit everywhere and just poor conditions. I asked to see the bull terriers and she took me back to the long legged but small puppy. He definitely wasn’t a bull terrier more like a pitbull terrier but I fell in love straight away. I was in love. Pete wasn’t sure and I had already said to him, I’m going to call him Leo after Leonardo diCaprio, my favourite actor. I felt so sorry for his sister but I really wanted a boy and I often think about her.

On the way home, Leo took full advantage of my air conditioned car and slept the whole way home. He was the perfect fur child. He is the best 500$ I’ve ever spent.

When we arrived home, we took him on a tour of the house and showed him every room before he bolted out the backdoor as soon as we opened it and he just rolled around on the green, soft fresh grass.

Leo is my everything. He is not a registered “service dog” but to me he is. If I am feeling anxious I hold his paw and he will just lick my hand non stop and give me unlimited kisses if I need. If I am sick from treatment, he will wait outside my ensuite on all four paws and wait for me at the door. He sleeps with me everynight either at my feet or snuggling up to me. I love my dog so much and to think that there is so many animals that are just as beautiful as him stuck in pounds kill me ready to be put to be put to sleep.

If you’re looking for a furry friend I encourage you to do so if you’re capable to look after him/her. They’ll love you unconditionally and they’re great for PTSD. They’re always happy to see you, they do not judge you, they love you and just want to be with you.

Please adopt. Don’t shop.

Love Petite Vibrant.
