Time for another little question and answer session. You can check out the previous one, from April, by clicking here. Thank you to those who sent questions, your twitter handles are included alongside your questions below :)
If you could be any Disney character who would it be and why?
I found this really hard to answer as I always think I'd rather just be myself but slotted into a movie haha. If I had to choose though I think it could be cool to be Miss Price from Bedknobs and Broomsticks purely because of the magic side of it all and living alone haha. The cat would need to be a dog instead, though.
And if I were an animated character I think I'd most likely be an animal like, Rabbit from Winnie the Pooh rather than a Princess or anything. I suppose we're rather alike in our characteristics such as being easily annoyed, compulsive and fussy haha.
What is your favourite nature / wildlife to spot come wintertime?
I think everyone loves to see a Robin and I'm no exception. I can't think of anything else to say in particular because I always love to see all wildlife, obviously haha! Birds, especially water birds, in general, are fab to see as winter is usually when their plumage is at it's brightest!

What do you love most about blogging?
It gives me something to do. I don't work full time like a lot of people so apart from work, housework and looking after Baker, the majority of my time is spent on anything and everything to do with my blog. People always ask how on Earth I can be scheduled for so many months ahead, but it's because I spend so much time doing it.
I also love that I have everything I have done, seen, been etc documented here. Things that maybe before the blog that would end up being taken for granted. There are so many memories and so many photos over the past 5 years to look back on and enjoy.
What made you choose Baker?
Well actually, now you ask! My Granda (Mam's Dad) was a shepherd and so I grew up surrounded by beautiful border collies at his house. However, he also had one other dog - a lurcher named Honey and she was wonderful. Well although I've always wanted a dog and am the type to constantly look on animal rescue sites at the poor mites that are up for adoption, we weren't specifically aiming to add a pup to the family when we did. We saw a litter of Border Collie, Lurcher cross babies and saw it as a little sign.
As for Baker in particular, he chose us. We were looking at another and the man said it was the only bitch and she was taken. So while we stood talking and looking at all the brothers climbing over each other in the bed, Jake felt one by his foot. I picked him up and decided that he would be my son forever :) I really wish I could have taken all his siblings too as the conditions weren't great but I hope they found nice homes in the end.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
It rotated between a Vet and a Marine Biologist and then when I was a little older, an Interior Designer. I've always been really into animals and watched things like Animal Hospital with Rolf Harris, played with Puppy in my Pocket's and looked after all my teddies but when the reality hit what veterinary care entailed I knew I couldn't stomach it.
If you had to pick one favourite thing about Disney what would it be?
If you mean the company in general, I'd say the live action film catalogue. There are so many movies, many of which I own, that you could watch them over and over and never get bored. There is a vast range in genre from the 40s until present day which takes you on a journey not only through all of the different worlds but through the history of cinematography, which I adore.
What's your favourite thing to do over the Christmas period?🎅🏽🎄
Sleep and eat chocolate. :P Unfortunately, we don't have a big family nor do we do much to celebrate so those two things are probably my best bet haha.

How to incorporate your love of Disney into your winter clothes?
If you haven't seen my OOTD posts, I literally wear something Disney, every single day of my life. I have everything from shoes, socks and T-shirts to hoodies, jewellery and hair bows. It isn't just incorporating it into my style, it is my style, no matter the time of year. Ooh! I have Disney gloves and earmuffs too haha
What winter films do you love?
I actually have a full post of 'The Best Disney Christmas Movies' coming up on the 16th of December ;) I also love a good Hallmark movie!
What is your favourite Winter memory?
Eeek. Well, I don't like Winter on a whole haha but I suppose I'll go back to when I was a kid. Just having my Granda around, as Christmases have been pretty poop since we lost him - it's just not the same.
What has surprised you about blogging?
How big it has gotten and that so many people make money from it these days. It's been over 8 years since I started (I had another blog or 2 before this one) and I only knew a handful of other bloggers who commented on my blog back then. Non-bloggers didn't understand what it was either whereas now it's talked about on tv and in magazines too, it's crazy.
