Dogs and Death #willinnumbers

Hi Everyone,

How are you all?

I was away this week and I had to do a 4-hour drive each way. The way back was very scary. The road where pretty flooded and a challenge to drive.

This got me thinking about what would happen if I died. I know morbid, but a very really and inevitable fact of life.

I have a very little family and in my house it is me, my gorgeous hubby and my two babies. Yes, my babies are my two dogs who you have read about a lot in my posts.

If the worst happened and my hubby and I were involved in an accident. I worry what would happen to my pups.

So I started thinking about a will. As you may or may not know I am an ex-cop and I have seen many times people passing away without having a will and this has left so many issues for their loved ones. 51million Britons don’t have a will. What a crazy number of people with no say in what happens to their possessions if they die. This also means if you have no immediate relatives the crown will get their full estate. This happens so often.

As I said I have a small family and I don’t speak to my parents and sister. So my nightmare would be that they had some say after I passed.  

I worry about Millie and Mylo. Who will look after them? Who would know that Millie has mild hip dysplasia and you have to monitor her exercise.
Also Mylo has major dietary requirement that you really can’t stray from his diet or he will have a really bad tummy.

So I think it’s time me and my husband talked wills. To get our affairs in order encase the worst happens to us.

I am lucky that I know my lovely In-laws would look after the pups and would never let anything happened to them. They might have a fight on their hands with our best mate Dave as Millie is obsessed with him and if I was to be completely honest she is Dave’s dog and just lives with us!

My two are an unlikely pair but you could never separate them. Millie might pretend she doesn’t like her brother but if he is out without her she misses him deeply. Mylo just worships the ground Millie walks on and when she is out will cry his heart out for her. We had Millie for about one year before we got Mylo. Mylo fell in love with her the moment he seen her and when we took him to come live with us. He scratched me to death to curl up in Millie’s bed with her. He lives to steal the odd cuddle with her even now. So I defo have to get a plan together for them!

Have you talked wills?

I put a couple drops of oil in it and it fulls my room with the most amazing smell and it really clears my chest. I feel like I can breath better with this one. it leaves the air so much purer in my opinion. you just plus it in and in now time its all really to go it has function for having the steam or not. I like the steam. this has built in safety as soon as the water runs out it runs it self off. perfect if like me you can be forgetful.

My top tips for driving

Hi Everyone,

How are you all?

You may or may not know but I have been driving for a good few years now and when I was in the police, I completed the police driving course. I was fully trained to drive with blue light and sirens. So after lots of studying I think I know a wee bit about driving so here are some top tips for my exercise.

Here are my top driving tips.  

1.   Always get your car checked regularly. From the tyre depth to the oil. This can all lead to major problems if not caught early.

2.   Road handing. I want you to think about your tyres. Now your tires are your grip on the road keeping you firmly in place. Each tire is only the width of a CD case! That is what is holding you on the road.

3.   One of the best things I learnt on the driving course is to brake in to a corner and accelerate out. This gives you the best control of the car on the road.

4.   Harsh braking is for emergence's only!

5.   Drive to what you can see. Yes you drive that road every day of your life, you haven’t had a problem yet but what if after that bend there is a broken down car? or worse a pedestrian crossing unexpectedly?

6.   Never take a risky over take. Why would you risk your and other people’s lives for the sake of 10 seconds progression on the road?

7.   Never brake harshly on a wet road this will cause a skid at the lease and a crash at worst.

8.   If you get in to a skid try to remember to steer in the direction of the skid never against it.

9.   NEVER DRINK AND DRIVE. This go’s for drugs too!!!

10.   Seat belts save life’s. I have seen this many times where people wouldn’t be with us without this lifesaving safety item.

11.  Unsafe speeds are for track day and trained emergency service personnel not for being a idiot and trying to work on time. Your boss would rather you lived to get to work than made it on time.

12.  If weather conditions are bad and you don’t feel confident and comfortable then don’t drive. Use a train or bus or have a snow day? Never feel pressured in to driving.

13.  Driving in snow is tricky and smaller cars handle better unless you have a land rover or snow tyres.

14.  New and learning drivers. Give them space you had to learn to and I bet you didn’t jump in to the learner car and be a competent driver. Be courteous.

15.  Be courteous. What goes around comes round. Let a car out if you can.  The unofficial rule at a round a bout of junction is let one car in if everyone does this then we will all get there quicker. If you are causing a que of traffic pull over and let the cars passed. Did you know this is an offence if you don’t?

16. NEVER text or call and drive. Come on people pull over if you are texting how can you be concentrating on the road??

Well I hope this has helped you and you found some tips you didn’t know. If you would like more posts like this let me know.

Doggie diets

Hi Everyone. 
How are you all? 

Lets talk dogs for a wee minute. My two dogs are very different and this can be a nightmare and a blessing all at the same time.  If you have been following me a while you will know them but if your new here is a wee intro. 

This is Millie she is 4 and she is a Springador ( springier spaniel lab mix). We got Millie at 18 months as her previous owns thought she was a bit hyper! Millie is the laziest dog you can meet by the way! Unless she is swimming or there a ball involved that is. 

As soon as we got her we took her to be checked at the vet and the vet told us she had had a ectopic pregnancy and her poor paws where worn to nothing as her old owners walked her on the concert paths all the time. Once we had her back to full health. we noticed her hips didn't seem quite right. She is a Springador so she does wiggle that bootie a lot but this was different. she started to limp. So back to the vet and a Xray revealed she had mild hip dysplasia. So we have to monitor her very closely and make sure we don't over exercise her and watch her weight so no extra pressure is put on her hips. 

Above any thing Millie is our princess and if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have come out of my depression. 

Next up is Mylo

After we got married as a wedding present to our self we got Mylo he was 12 weeks when we got him. My granddad had a pointer and I loved her so much that I have always wanted this kind of dog and when we seen an advert for Dalmatian pups on our mini moon it was fate. 
We learned quickly that Mylo has a very sensitive tummy and he has to be on a very strict diet.

 The main reason we wanted a bigger dog is we are both keen mountain biker and we wanted a dog to come with us. I like knowing that Mylo is with my hubby and hes not on his own. My hubby had a huge crash last year and went in to a tree he woke up to Mylo frantically licking his face! Mylo needs a diet that suits his very unique needs. 

He is a huge softy and loves nothing more than cuddle and kisses. where we are out I find peoples reactions to him funny they are either obsessed or scared because he's large. I find this funny because I have been round dogs all my life and I can say he is the softest thing ever!

So we have covered the two pups and there individual needs. They were sent some Tails.com food to try. I love that this was sent to our door super fast and hassle free. I also like that they get individual food as they really are so different. You go online and fill in lots of details about each pet and from the information they give you they create a blend for each dog and sent it out with handy leaflets to keep you informed. When you create your account it does set up a direct debit so your never have to worry about reordering i now this is a love hate thing for some people but I find it so convenient. 

Mylos blend is 15.1% healthy active, 18.8 % calorie control 66.1% tailored vitality. 
Why is this for Mylo what in it ? there Beep pulp which helps with healthy digestion for his wee tummy.  Potato for energy High quality protein for healthy body. It also got loads of vitamins and minerals to promote growth and omega 3&6 for a glossy coat and good skin! £38.02

Millies Blend is 45.9% joint car 20, 5.1% senior nutrition and 49% active nutrition 22.So we have mobility and joint care for her hips. essential fatty acid for healthy coat and skin. weight control elements to keep her in tip top condition. dental care and healthy growth and vitality. £20.09 per month.

These both come with measuring cup which you set up to each dogs individual needs. Give you peace of mind that you are giving each do the right about and not over or under feeding them. 

For both do we for a month its about £58  which is not to bad for quality food for them. My dog loved this maybe too much as they would wake up early have there dinner and then want to go back to sleep. Tails.com deliver every month to your door so no more lugging huge dog food bags from the pet shop. I am in the highland and they deliver here free of charge! 

Tails have kindly given me a discount code for you to have 2 week free trial with just £1 delivery too Just enter MISSLJBEAUTY at the checkout and go and get some for your prince or princess. 

What do you feed you pups?

How to stay healthy at work.

Hi Everyone,

How are you all?

During the summer months. I have a great job in a Ticket office that I love but I find I do get a few aches and pains from sitting at the desk for hours. Hands up if you’re an office worker who forget to have a good stretch? I read that office workers need to move more to increase their life expectancy. What on earth are we all doing! If office worker doesn’t exercise for more than a hour a day we are 60% more likely to die early. By forgetting to move whilst we are working we are literally taking years off our life! This has to change NOW.  The research doesn't mean go workout for an hour every day it just mean that we should be at least briskly walking for a hour a day to combat all the sitting.

I found this amazing sequence of office yoga from furniture-work.co.uk. I have been following it a few days now and I am really feeling the benefits. So I have been on a mission this month to change my desk habits and move more on my shift. As you know I am recovering from an injury to my knee. 
I wouldn't normally worry about not exercising enough because I do a lot of biking when I'm off work but not at the moment with my knee.

So we have covered moving? Now what else should be considered?

Food. You know I have a love love relationship with food. I try to lead a healthy life but this summer has been the opposite if I'm honest. I am getting back on my rightful ways now. We have to think about our body's as a machine and what we put in is what we get out. I know if I have a healthy breakfast I'm full till lunch but if I skip it I am a snackaholic! So if you have a long day a head. You need to plan and think about your meals and what you want out of them. I know this can be a hassle but with so many healthy options in all stores now it really is hard to make excuses. Plus, going for a walk to the shop on your lunch hour adds in your much needed steps hitting that hour will be easy to achieve then.

Our eyes. I am not the best at this but we should be taking 5 minutes an hour away from our computer to give our eyes a rest from looking at the screen. I sometime wonder how long in a day I spend looking at different screen, we have computer screens, mobile phone, TVs and iPad. No wonder so many of us need glasses or get regular head aches.

Water. Yes, I go on and on about water but it’s really is so important to our body not only for basic body functions but it combats fatigue. Which can be a major problem when sat at a computer for a long time. Also if you find this a struggle, I love re hydration tablets these are an awesome way to get the fluid you need. plus you don't have to run to the toilet all the time.

Smiling, Yip I know this sounds cheesy but a smile is infectious and can really turn someone’s day around. We all have bad days but a smile and a friendly word can go a long way. I am lucky to work with a great bunch and they really can turn a long day in to a fun one with some fun stories and banter. We have to remember we can be as healthy as we want but if your mind is struggling our body will too.
