Happy Birthday Mumsie

My Mum reads (and likes on Facebook) every single one of my posts on here. So this is a post just for her, on her birthday.

Happy birthday Mumsie, I’m thankful for everything that you have given me, sacrificed for me, let me get away with, and done for me throughout my life.

I love you very much.


Happy Birthday to my Best Friend

Today is the boy’s birthday! We had friends over last night, have spent all day together today and will see family tonight. He is the cherry on top of my sloth-filled life and I love him so very very much, not least for putting up with this all-consuming obsession of mine (and, generally, encouraging it…).

To get into the party mood, here’s some pics of Buttercup the Sloth on her birthday, from the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica. buttercupbirthday buttercupbirthday2

Getting them while they’re young

My young niece and cousins know all too well my obsession with sloths. Today was a month since my birthday so I packed up my cards that had been sitting out since then, and realised I forgot to post about this card that my 7 year old cousin made for me:

Not sure, but I think that’s a dolphin on top of the winner’s podium. And I may have seen recently on Facebook that she now has a toy sloth of her very own! Talk about having a positive influence!

It’s My Birthday and I’ll Sleep if I Want To

Yesterday was my birthday. I had a busy day at work, but did get very spoilt by family and friends.

So here is the big news:
The boy is organizing for me to MEET A SLOTH. Pet it, feed it, interact with it. I am BESIDE MYSELF. As they only allow two people at a time, once a month, I have to wait until July at this stage. And if it shuns you, you have to leave. If I get shunned by the sloth I will literally cry. Watch this space, it’s going to be AMAZING.


Kristen Bell’s Sloth Meltdown

I saw this ages ago and thought it was about time it got posted on this site. I don’t blame Kristen Bell for reacting the way she did; I probably would have done the exact same thing if a SLOTH was in my house!



Sloth Cake

When I turned 21, my Mum made me a sloth cake. It was the best present she could have given me. Doza Sloth helped me cut it, too!
